The King Lives On In Tribute Performer

Who: David Cazalet
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
When: Saturday June 18, 2005

LONG live the King.

Those are the words David Cazalet has continued to live by since he began performing the music of Elvis Presley before his family as a young child.

But these days the American- born entertainer has progressed to playing before much larger crowds as he presents a stage tribute to the music of Presley.

Cazalet has become renowned as a total professional who takes pride in working with musicians, dancers, singers and production staff to create the ultimate experience for Presley fans. He is touring the Australian club circuit with his show The King In Concert, which celebrates Presley's music with a cast of 15.

His rise to the stage has come after years spent trying to break into the industry.

Cazalet began his professional career in Las Vegas in 1990.

America was in the midst of recession and Cazalet took on any job that was available, from giving away brides in Las Vegas wedding chapels to landing a part as an extra in the movie Honeymoon in Vegas. He was fortunate to unite with a local band called The Press, with which he performed at many casinos including the Sahara, Hilton, Dunes and Palace Station. Performing the music of Presley has taken him around the globe performing many memorable shows including a gig before members of the Japanese Royal Family.

The show will appear at Belmont 16ft Sailing Club on Saturday night.

Tickets to the show cost $22 per person and are on sale at the club.
