Don started performing his Elvis® show a few
years after Elvis® passed away, sing mainly for his own enjoyment in the
basement of his parent's home. He was eventually talked into performing
for some friends in the living room, and thus his performance career had
begun. He started with tapes through college and progressed to his own
band. He has since made his career as an entertainer not only doing
Elvis®, but also with his own show group, The Don Rose Revue.
He has performed
his Elvis® tribute all across the United States and Canada. He has toured
in Germany and Switzerland, and played in showrooms of major Cruise
lines. He now makes his home in Las Vegas where he spends about half the
year - the other half on the road, playing major Casinos, doing
corporate and convention work, along with concerts and one-niters.
His tribute to Elvis®, "Elvis®:
That's the Way It Was" is said to be one of the best. He has a following
across the country and an affiliation with the Jailhouse Rockers of
California. His stage charisma and his strong voice are what fans
most compare to the real Elvis®.
