Priscilla Presley & Christopher Ameruoso Collingwood Canada










It was a wonderful week for 'Shades of Elvis' Priscilla and I had been invited to be special guest at the 20th Anniversary of the Collingwood Elvis Festival in Canada. The crowd of between 30-40 thousand people flock to the little quaint town to celebrate the life of Elvis Presley. 
Priscilla and I were treated with the warmth and hospitality that I have only witnessed in Canada. The streets filled with joy. People laughing, dancing, singing and enjoying everything Elvis. 
Priscilla and I had done several signings and meet and greets. The crowds of people that showed up for each one was truly flattering and it was a great feeling to be recognized for this special project  'Shades of Elvis'
The opening of the festival was filled with a crowd of over 15-20 thousand people. Priscilla and I where on stage to greet the crowd and talk about 'Shades of Elvis' We both had been presented with the key to the city of Collingwood by the mayor of the town. It was a very humbling experience. 
Seeing lines of people waiting for you to sign your creation was something I will never forget. Of course people were beside themselves getting to meet Priscilla Presley and have her take a photo with them. 
Collingwood has really made an impression on me and I look forward to returning and enjoying the celebration of the greatest entertainer to ever live Elvis Presley. 
My greatest selfie photo is at top and will be one of my favorite photos to cherish forever.

Def Leppard - Kiss tour 2014

What an amazing night and show put on by both Def Leppard and Kiss at the Los Angeles Forum Tuesday night July 8th. Both bands where on their mark and a packed house was for sure showing their appreciation. There's nothing like standing in the pit at a live concert and being able to capture some great moments from the performance. 
Def Leppard with their chart topping songs please the crowd one song after another. One of my all time favorites 'Love Bites' just really took me back to a place that was really special for me. Kiss electrified the crowed with there fire bombing & light spectacular. It was the Macy's 4th of July show all over again. One thing for sure at a Kiss concert, I could watch Gene Simmons all night. His energy and animated moves are beyond entertaining. 
If you have this double headlining tour coming through your town be sure to get tickets and enjoy a great entertaining concert. If your looking for singing to tracks and 50 dancers on stage look elsewhere.
