Travis LeDoyt has been called “World’s Best Young Elvis,” and there are five good reasons why; 1) he looks like Elvis; 2) he sings like Elvis; 3) he moves like Elvis; 4) his personality and mannerisms both on and off stage are strikingly similar to Elvis and 5) he sells out nearly every show. To those people who think they have seen it all when it comes to Elvis tribute acts, this is the one that makes them do a double take. There is simply no way to describe Travis and his performance except unbelievable.
Travis was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, where it was evident at an early age that he had the necessary elements to become an entertainer. His impish behavior and clever wit were responsible for providing a good deal of levity and laughter, and his talent and love of music was evident from an early age. He was exposed to a wide variety of musical styles, including Country, Swing, Rock & Roll, and Classical. His fascination with music led to formal piano lessons at age nine. It wasn’t long before he was proficient at playing both piano and guitar, writing his own songs, and singing. That early training and his natural talent have culminated in Travis being one of the most convincing tribute acts to ever grace the stage.
Travis was not an immediate fan of Elvis Presley, but as he got to know more about the man and his music, he came to understand why Elvis was dubbed “The King of Rock & Roll.” After listening to his father’s recordings by Elvis, Travis was particularly impressed with Presley’s early Sun recordings and bought that collection of hits. He played the CDs constantly and began to sing along. As Travis matured, he found his voice and appearance were remarkably similar to Elvis. He also found he had a natural ability to move like Elvis, and after his first performance in tribute to Presley, he found the public response to be overwhelming. Since that time Travis has been leaving audiences in awe everywhere he has performed around the world.
Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime and restricts his shows to the hits and ambiance of 1954-1964. Utilizing a three-piece band featuring guitar, bass, and drums (augmented with backing tracks for songs that require extra orchestration), Travis takes his audience back to the fun and excitement of an early 1960s Elvis concert. For those who missed seeing an Elvis concert during those years, it is a chance to relive the excitement and aura of an Elvis show and the fun and energy experienced by the audiences.
