Brody Finlay

Brody grew up loving the sounds of Elvis Presley and singing on stage since the age of five. He was scouted to perform as Elvis in Sydney and since then has developed his likeness to 'The King’s' movements, voice and mannerisms. Brody was placed 2nd in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest at the Festival in 2018. He has also previously performed alongside two-time winner contest, Paul Fenech, and alongside the worlds best Roy Orbison Tribute Artist Aaron W Mansfield performing Blues Brothers Rebooted.

Brendon Chase

Brendan has been singing Elvis's tunes for over 20 years. In 2017, he won the pristine title as "Australasia's Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist" which took him to Memphis to compete for the world title. Brendon looks like Elvis, sings like Elvis, and has an extraordinary stage presence that makes you temporarily believe you might be watching the King himself! Over the years, Brendon has won titles and played in all major venues throughout Australasia and featured many times on national TV. Originally from New Zealand, he is now based on the Gold Coast and regularly performs all over the globe. Seeing Brendon’s commanding and exciting performance as Elvis will leave you all shook up whether you’re a die-hard Elvis fan or not!

Paul Fenech

Paul Fenech is one of Australia’s most experienced Elvis Tribute performers and one of the world’s most successful, with over 19 years of international and domestic experience including regular performances in Memphis, New Zealand and Asia.

Che Orton

New Zealand born musician and singer Che Orton, has been entertaining professionally for the past 17 years and has travelled throughout New Zealand and overseas as a solo artist and in professional tribute shows. After 14 years of being in tribute shows, Che has also formed one of the top bands around the Waikato, and has quickly gained a great reputation for polished performances throughout the country. In 2016, he travelled to Nashville to record his first single, “You’re the Reason” written for his wife. The song enjoyed success on one of NZ’s top radio station play lists. An accomplished singer/songwriter and recording artist Che represented NZ at the Texas Country Music Awards in 2017 having been recognised for his own songs. He is an incredibly versatile performer, sings a broad repertoire of music including with his own band and is well known throughout the clubs in New Zealand as both a soloist, a Bee Gee, a band lead and of course one of NZ’s top Elvis Tribute Artists.

John Collins

After being entered into a singing competition by friends on a golf trip, (much to his surprise), John came away a winner at the age of 27. He then pursued singing lessons and followed his dream, back then it wasn't necessarily to portray Elvis, but to sing anywhere, any place any time! His family influence then kicked in - as long as he can remember they were playing Elvis. When it came to performing Elvis songs, well that seemed to come easily to John as it was a natural way of being! John had his start singing at the Blue Gum theatre restaurant, then was fortunate enough to pick up the role as Elvis in the multi "Mo" Award nominated showband "Heroes From Heaven". John is grateful to "Heroes" which taught him so much, and he had many amazing, crazy, fun and enjoyable experiences over the years Working the "Heroes from Heaven", creating his own show "Walking in Memphis" and singing with other bands and performing solo work, has evolved him personally and professionally leading him to this point in my life where entertaining audiences, large - small and everywhere in between is a wonderful and very special part of his life. John could go on about all the fabulous experiences he has had over the years, however each performance of John's is still as exciting as the first. He loves performing and interacting with the audience, which comes across in every show.
