Chris as Elvis
Home: Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada
Chris Kelso is a second generation ETA. His dad, Joe Kelso, is also an ETA. Chris, Joe, and 2012 Rockin’ Elvis Fest winner, Adam Fitzpatrick performed together in their own show titled Elvis Generations which is on hiatus as each ETA pursues their music interests.
His videos and bio indicate Kelso’s focus is on the early Elvis including songs from the movie soundtracks.
You can expect to be entertained with the showmanship Chris offers with authentic outfits [and] high energy moves from the early years of Elvis’ career. Chris will bring you down memory land with the hits [from] the 50s, 60s and famous Hollywood movie soundtracks. It is very clear Chris has a love for what he does and that passion comes alive on stage.
The old adage is a man is known by the company he keeps and Kelso pals around with Mark Stevenz who is a talented, personable ETA. Expectations are high for his Rockin’ Elvis Fest debut.
You Be The Judge
Will Kelso live up to expectations and transform from Chris as Elvis to Chris is Elvis and win our praise and the competition? Good luck Chris.
