About the Book

Unique among the various types of impersonation entertainers, a tribute artist concentrates on only a few of a famous singer’s notable characteristics in order to effectively evoke that performer through song. This book explores the elements of tribute performance through case studies of performers who pay homage to legendary singers like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Drawing on original interviews with tribute artists, biographical profiles chronicle performers’ early careers, musical influences and their lives on the road. A few performers even reflect on their friendships with musical titans like Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Crickets. Forty tribute artists are profiled, including winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, Million Dollar Quartet alumni and several European performers.
