MEMPHIS KING
the Voice of Elvis

A warm hello to all of you Elvis fans and tribute artists alike. I am often asked how and why I got into being an Elvis Presley tribute artist and I can tell you that it was a very strong desire from childhood to be one. I saw a film of Elvis called Roustabout when I was only a few years old and I loved the man from that day on. I loved Elvis's music from that early age and there hasn't been a day since then that I haven't sang an Elvis song and tried to perfect my tribute to his great voice. I pay meticulous attention to the way Elvis sings, from the way he breaths to adopting the attitude that he expresses when recording the song. To me Elvis was the greatest performer and vocalist of the last century and I constantly strive for perfection when I sing and perform. For me the desire to perform is like a burn inside and that feeling was certainly greater than the fear of performing. It took until 2001 to finally have the nerve go on stage, I have never felt fear like it before and I have never lost the desire to perform since that time. For the last year or so I have been performing in a UK tour called "Elvis Back In The Building" which culminated in a one night show in October 2004 at the legendary London Palladium, a very proud moment for me and the band I can tell you. I am planning future tours in the UK and Europe and I would love to meet anyone who has the same respect and love for the King as I do, it's always a kick to meet the true Elvis fans and respected Elvis tribute artists around the world.

I have genuine respect and admiration for all Elvis tribute artists who strive to perfect their art and equally it embarrasses and frustrates me when I see and hear the ones who don't or can't. I find it painful and to watch and listen to. One thing for sure is that we all share love and respect for Elvis, and this alone makes meeting everyone such a happy experience.

I intend to keep recording albums especially songs which Elvis didn't record. I have found this to be surprisingly difficult to do because it's hard to imagine what Elvis may have been feeling when singing the song. Also I have to imagine how he may have sung it which is probably the most difficult part. Maybe if you drop me a line on the songs you would have liked Elvis to have performed then I will do my utmost to record it with respect and justice it deserves to the song and to Elvis.

SteelWheels

SteelWheels was formed in 2002 with a core group of musicians going back to 1996. Their dedication and musical abilities have allowed them to reproduce faithfully the sounds of the Rolling Stones recordings. Guy Turnbull’s vocals are so close to the real thing, one would swear it was Mick actually singing. Open guitar tunings, stage theatrics and a passion for the Stones makes this band a must see in 2006.

Personnel:

Ted Croft - vocals, guitar, keyboards, harmonica. Ted started his west coast roots in 1985 with Vancouver cover band, “The Teds”. Ted performs as Ronnie Wood in SteelWheels and just luv’s it! Slide on! His other musical achievements include being selected after an international competition to provide the lead vocals for a CD project in praise of the late John Lennon called “Songs for John”. SFJ, was written by “Beaten Path”, the brainchild of two Toronto musicians, David Goyette and Tom Heyfron (original member of 60’s group, The Troggs).

Guy Turnbull - lead vocals, has performed as Mick Jagger for over two decades. His uncanny recreation of Mick’s distinct vocal style helped him win a contest at a local radio station, reworking a Stones hit for concert tickets. The song was a listener favorite and found it’s way onto regular rotation. He went on to form Stikky Fingerz, in the 80’s - Vancouver’s first Rolling Stones tribute band. Guy’s endless energy and vocal chops carry over to his performances with SteelWheels.

Dean Way - vocals, drums and brother Gary Way, bass, vocals, hail from London, England. Playing together for more than 25 years, they have performed in countless cover bands and traveled western Canada extensively throughout the 80’s and 90’s. The Bro’s lay down the bang on groove of Watts / Wyman and supply the musical fabric for “Keith and Ronnie” to weave.

Al Sirett - lead guitar, vocals, is another native of England. His love of British music, past and present. Al’s keen ear and attention to detail is evident in every song, but it his presentation of Keith Richards that showcases Al’s musical and performing ability.
