Rockin’ Elvis Fest Contestant Profile: Rob Ely

PALA, CA.  This is a Pompadour series profiling ETAs competing at the 2013 Rockin’ Elvis Fest March 15-17th.  All the information has been accumulated from their respective websites, Facebook pages, and other available online media.

Double Trouble

Imagine what it would have been like if Jessie Garon Presley had lived.  The multi-talented Rob Ely also has a twin brother named Mike who is an equally talented entertainer.  When performing together as Elvis, Buddy Holly, Neil Diamond, Garth Brooks, Roy Orbison, and in their Oldies Rock Show they call themselves DoubleTake.

Ely is a confident entertainer bringing to life an authentic, early Elvis on stage by matching his look, dress, and unique, energetic, singing style.  Placing in the top at many contests he gives many ETAs a run for the money.  He missed first place at the 2013 EP Expo in Winterhaven, CA by only one point.

Rob Ely as Elvis, was phenomenal. While other impersonators try too hard, he was positively authentic. His voice, movements and physical appearance were incredibly accurate. He brought back Elvis’ heart and soul to the stage and transcended the audience. Rob’s own warmth and charm was as genuine as the King himself. He made himself accessible to a very appreciative audience. Rob Ely is professional and a gentleman.  ~Sharon Ziegenbein (client who hired Rob Ely)

One day Ely will compete in Memphis for the crown of Ultimate ETA.  Could this be his time?
