Jeremy Pearce - Bio & Resume
Jeremy “Elvis” Pearce is a 41 year old “Elvis Tribute Artist” and has been performing his act since he was eight years old! What started out as an entry in his 3rd grade talent show has turned into a lifelong passion. Jeremy's love and respect for Elvis and his music shines through in every performance.
Before turning professional, Jeremy won several Elvis impersonator contests. Since then he has won audiences over in more than 3,500 live shows in casinos, nightclubs, fairs, conventions, fan club events, private parties, etc. Jeremy is based in Fresno, California, and regularly performs up and down the state. He has also performed in the Elvis meccas of Las Vegas and Memphis, and had a number of highly acclaimed engagements in Lake Tahoe at the same hotel where Elvis used to perform. Jeremy is one of the most popular Elvis Tribute Artists in the world (with over 200 annual bookings) and over 300 dues paying members in the Official Jeremy "Elvis" Pearce Fan Club. Jeremy has worked with a number of the biggest names in the Elvis World - DJ Fontana (Elvis' original drummer and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer), The Sweet Inspirations (Elvis' legendary backing vocalists), as well as friends and associates of the King including several of the leading ladies from his films.
Jeremy’s show is a carefully crafted “Tribute to the King.” He performs a variety of Elvis’ hits, from the 50's favorites to the Las Vegas show-stoppers. The show is enhanced by the stunning professional jumpsuits made from Elvis’ original patterns (by B&K Enterprises), satin scarves for the ladies, and a performance that is true to Elvis’ voice, moves, and mannerisms. Jeremy has been endorsed by several Elvis fan clubs that are registered with Graceland - these organizations do not usually make endorsements. Jeremy's voice has made his CD "Jeremy Pearce - A Tribute to the King" one of the only Elvis impersonator CDs to receive radio airplay and has sold over 10,000 copies.
In addition to working with backing tracks, Jeremy also works with a fantastic, talented band for larger events and venues. The energy generated by the live band is second to none. What makes Jeremy's show stand apart from all others is his unparalled ability to connect with his audiences - he knows exactly how to direct every show and adds just the right touch of humor. In a world full of impersonators, Jeremy provides a unique showmanship honed by being an entertainer since childhood.
