Dean Z is Dean Zeligman.  Zeligman is a professional ETA, meaning he quit his day job, if he ever had one, and is making his living with a live stage show in Branson, MO.  Click here for his Facebook fan page.

Growing up in the high desert of Lancaster, California, Dean has dedicated his life to performing a tribute to the legacy “The King” left behind.  He has always paid great attention to detail while on stage, re-creating two-tone black and white penny loafers, fleck trousers, a leather carved guitar cover and a [World War II] broadcast microphone.

At a mere 17 years of age, Dean moved to the fast paced city of Las Vegas to reach toward his goal of establishing himself as a well-known act.  Over the past ten years, Dean has performed in several Vegas stage shows and has been giv[en] the good fortune of traveling the world.  Now at 29 years old, Dean stars in the world famous Legends in Concert show in Branson, MO.

He is Elvis full time.  Zeligman has a lot to live up to as America’s Favorite Rockabilly Elvis Tribute.
