Elvis Presley tribute artist Shawn Klush is the closest thing to the King in concert. He will be making a return appearance to the Union City Civic Auditorium stage. Born and raised in the small coal-mining town of Pittston, Pa., Klush’s love for music led him to begin imitating his musical idol, Elvis Presley. He performed in the famous Poconos region followed by a tour of Canada where he entered and won in the “Worldwide Elvis Competition” in Montreal. This caught the attention of the award winning Las Vegas show, “Legends in Concert” where for many years he starred as “Elvis” in their Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas, Branson and Atlantic City show rooms.
Each January he stars in the “Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour,” an extravaganza with Elvis’ own musicians, singers and friends, in major venues in multiple cities. Klush, who has released five CDs, has performed with Elvis’ closest friends, musicians and singers, such as J.D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, The Jordanaires, The Imperials, DJ Fontana, Charlie Hodge, Jerry Scheff, The Sweet Inspirations, Joe Guercio, Jerry Schilling and Joe Esposito. He portrayed Elvis in the hit TV miniseries “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” which aired on CBS and VH1. His lastest TV appearance was in the episode 7, season 1, of the HBO's series Vinyl, by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger.
