Bob is a local man who has lived in the district all of his life; he currently lives in the Crabtree area of Harpenden with his wife and three young daughters.
Harpenden's Elvis Bob
Elvis is still a fairly new role for Bob, he also has his own garden company at present, but he is no stranger to the world of music. He has a musical background and has previously written his own songs and spent many years as a DJ in some of London's well known clubs (including the 'Ministry of Sound.') But being a DJ didn't satisfy Bob musically and it was while on a recent summer holiday to Rimini that he discovered his talent and Elvis Bob was born!
While holidaying in Italy Bob stumbled upon a one-man-band who was playing an Elvis tune; he decided to join in and add the vocals. Very quickly a crowd assembled in the Italian courtyard and when the song came to an end the pair were treated to a standing ovation and Bob was handed 50 Euros from an impressed tourist. It was this chance encounter which led to Bob, on his return to the UK, starting up his Elvis Tribute Act.
So what can you expect if you book Elvis Bob? 'A little less conversation and a little more action' – sums up the act. Bob is not a comic, he is an Elvis impersonator and a DJ. His performances cover Elvis' work from the early 50s through to 70s and Bob chooses, 'the best ones that he's done;' his favourites are 'Proud Mary' and 'Such a Fool as I.'
Booking is very flexible; from an hour's daytime performance in a local residential home to an Ibiza wedding, Elvis Bob caters for his client's individual needs. Bob is currently working very hard to build his business and will be performing at Charlie's Restaurant and Bar in Kinsbourne Green; he is also trying to secure a date to perform at Harpenden's Royal British Legion.
So, make sure you 'talk about the good times' and let everyone know about Harpenden's new King!
