First European to win the ultimate Elvis impersonator ….

Ben Portsmouth and his band, Taking Care of Elvis, present an amazing tribute to the King of Rock and Roll with his looks, style and fantastic voice which will set hearts racing and feet-tapping.

 

In the blink of your eyes you’ll be taken back to what it was like to see, hear and experience the young and sexy Elvis when he first burst on to the U.S. music scene in 1954 right through to 1977.

Ben Portsmouth’s stunning outfits, all U.S. custom made, span the black leathers of Presley’s comeback in 1968 to the white jumpsuits of the later Las Vegas shows, all costumes are exact copies of the originals.

 

Not only is Ben Portsmouth a natural showman, but he is also an extremely talented professional singer/songwriter, a dedicated musician who sincerely goes that bit extra in all his performances.  In doing, so he leaves his audience craving more!

 

In 2006, Ben Portsmouth was awarded the title of Best Festival Elvis at the annual Porthcawl Elvis convention in Wales which is the biggest of its kind in Europe.  He took the audience of assembled Elvis devotees by storm with his remarkable voice and stage presence.  In 2007, he was awarded the Gold Lame (Jacket) Award for his 50’s set and in 2008 he was voted best ’68 Comeback Special.  Now he has won the “The World’s Ultimate Elvis Presley Impersonator.”

While I think this guy is amazing I still think Elvis had a better singing voice but that’s only my personal opinion. 🙂

      As I said I think he is amazing but if you close your eyes and listen you can tell it’s not Elvis he doesn’t have that same sort of smooth, creamy voice if you know what I mean.
      Happy Easter cheers Judy 🙂

    I’ve seen Elvis perform. Elvis had God given talent. Ben Portsmouth does as well. He is the BEST I have ever heard. He has perfect pitch, he writes music, sings it and can perform any type song, plus he plays most any instrument. His stage persona is amazing, he DANCES as well. I just heard him sing OPERA. Yes, OPERA. I don’t think Elvis ever sang OPERA, do you? BEN sang OPERA after a tough road show in Spain. I have never been a fan of Elvis pretenders, they are horrific…BEN is the REAL deal. BRAVO to Ben, for bringing “Elvis” back to those who loved him.:)
