Elvis Tribute Artist Comes to San José

November 3, 2006

A rising leader of those known by the letters ETA – that’s “Elvis tribute artists,” not the Basque paramilitary organization – is bringing several eras of Elvis Presley to the National Auditorium.

Donny Edwards is one of 136 impersonators listed on Elvis Tribute Artists Radio’s Web site, www.ladyluckmusic. com, which says his voice and style “bears an uncanny resemblance to Elvis in the early years.”

Edwards’ promotional material calls him “the most sought out young Elvis tribute artist (in the United States)” and says he can portray, musically and otherwise, “each era of Elvis’ life”: the early 50s, the late 60s comeback, the “swinging, legendary Vegas years.”

In an interview for Elvis Tribute Artists Radio, Edwards advised other ETAs to “let Elvis be your teacher.Watch him, studying every little thing from when he takes his breath to which hand he used and when and how… Too many times you see a talented ETA crash and burn because he gets haughty… and thinks he’s the chosen one. There’s only one Elvis and you ain’t him!”

Edwards is scheduled to perform at the National Auditorium in San José’s Children’s Museum Nov. 7, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost ¢15,000-26,000 (about $29-50). For reservations, call 222-7647 or 210-7979.
