The Ultimate Elvis Tour Performers


Elvis Presley tribute artists who have captivated audiences throughout
the world are coming together to perform in a 26-city tour of The
Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artists. The Tour is a multi-media concert
extravaganza that pays homage to Elvis during various stages of his
career. The four performers are tribute artists who were previously
selected as finalists at worldwide preliminary competitions for the
Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, held annually by Elvis Presley
Enterprises, Inc.

The Elvis tribute artists, who will be joined by a live band, back-up
singers, dancers, as well as iconic imagery made available from the
Graceland archives, portray Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s,
1960s, during his movie career and his concert years.

Bill Cherry
Bill Cherry is the reigning holder of the title Ultimate Elvis Tribute
Artist, winning the 2009 contest finals in Memphis, Tenn. He qualified
for the finals, held during Elvis Week, by winning the preliminary
competition in Tupelo, Miss. The Collinsville, Ill. native is the son
of a Pentecostal minister, which helped develop Cherry’s deep-rooted
love of southern gospel music at a young age. A life-long fan of Elvis
Presley, Cherry has been keeping the King of Rock n’ Roll’s memory and
music alive since 1989. With his award-winning performances
specializing in the concert years, Cherry has entertained and touched
the hearts of countless fans. “Performing a tribute to the greatest
entertainer the world has ever known is a dream come true,” said Cherry.

Kevin Mills
Kevin Mills’ portrayal and interpretation of Elvis Presley has made him
a popular and sought-after performer. After finishing in the top 10 in
2008, Mills finished third in the 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist
Contest in Memphis and has performed on all three sailings of The Elvis
Cruise. Mills also performed at the Presidential Inauguration for Bill
Clinton.

Leo Days
As one of the top finalists in the 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist
Contest, Leo Days is one of the few Elvis tribute artists who performs
all three eras of Elvis, including the rock ‘n’ roll ’50s , the ’60s
and the Vegas years of the ’70s. Days grew up listening to Elvis and
won his first tribute artist contest when he was 15 years old. Over the
past 12 years, Days has performed in casinos, theaters, corporate
events and festivals, and on cruise ships throughout the U.S. An
international artist, he tours often in France as well as Finland,
Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Holland and Germany. Days is a versatile
performer. In addition to his singing, he plays guitar and piano.

Victor Trevino, Jr.

Victor Trevino Jr.’s dream of a career in music and acting has been
realized as an Elvis Presley tribute artist. Specializing in the
rockabilly ’50s and ’60s and movie genre, he recreates the excitement
of the king’s popular years. Trevino has earned numerous awards and
titles in the three years he has performed.
He was a finalist in the 2009 and 2008 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist
Contests. He took first place in the 2009 Branson Ultimate Elvis
Competition and has performed at casinos, hotels, theaters, festivals,
and The Elvis Cruise, in addition to being the headliner at the 2009
Tupelo Elvis Festival in Tupelo, Miss.
