Seattle Tacoma's Elvis by Dano! is the best. If you want Elvis at your event Dano is by far the only and best choice. He arrived and set up with ease. Dano has the perfect relaxed attitude of a true professional performer. He tailored his performance to make our mothers 81st birthday a truly epic event. She cried tears of joy. After the set he stayed in costume and visited with the party guests and photos. When we need Elvis to come again we know who to call. Skip the rest and call the best!
The Angel Of The Winds Casino in Arlington, Washington is one of the many places where Dano has wowed the crowd on January 8th for Elvis's past birthdays. Being a true fan since the age of ten, Dano has loved singing along with The Great One most of his life. His first tribute to Elvis was back in 1994 at a church volunteer appreciation function, and in 1999 he sang his first full set of tunes to a very excited audience at the same hall. He was also a member of a rock and roll band around that same time period and he often performed tribute sets to Elvis. The crowd always lit up when Dano took the stage during those shows. He also sang Elvis hits many times on his own as a talented amateur at festivals, celebrations, karaoke bars, and parties. After an eight year stay, he left the band in 2004 and went solo to become one of the most rockin' professional Elvis impersonators around the Seattle Tacoma area and beyond, as well as a great ballad singer.
Dano's tribute to Johnny Cash provides up to 40 minutes (or less if requested) of engaging entertainment. Many folks have told him that when he drops his pitch to that nice baritone voice, it is perfect for bringing back fond memories of “The Man In Black”. When a continuous two legend show is requested, and after his last song, Johnny Cash (dressed in black), makes an about face to the audience. Then as the dramatic music plays, he slips on the famous gold lam'e jacket (and sunglasses for added effect). He then turns around to face his cheering crowd as “The King Of Rock And Roll”. His clients also have the option of choosing any of his other Elvis outfits, with a changing break in between.
Dano's powerful sound equipment can easily fill a large banquet hall with amazing music. He can pay tribute to early Elvis of the 1950's in the flashy gold lam'e jacket outfit, the "GI Blues" army uniform, the late 1960's star in the Singer TV Comeback Special leather ensemble, or of-course, the forever popular white jumpsuit costume of the 1970's icon. Once again, as Johnny Cash, he wears all black. So, if you want your next event "All Shook Up", and maybe “Walk The Line” a little too, then Seattle Tacoma's ELVIS By Dano! (a Li'l Johnny Cash!) is the one.
