In just a short time Shawn Klush has emerged as the nation’s top Elvis
tribute artist. Born and raised in the small coal-mining town of Pittston,
Pennsylvania, Shawn’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 the $5,000.00 prize in the
“Worldwide Elvis Competition” in Montreal. This caught the attention of
the award winning Las Vegas show, “Legends in Concert” where in 2004
he starred as ‘Elvis’ in their Branson MO. production. He also alternated in
their Las Vegas and Atlantic City show rooms. Each January he stars in
the “Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour”, an Elvis extravaganza with Elvis’ own
musicians, singers, and closest friends, in major venues in multiple cities.
Shawn has recorded 2 CDs and performed with Elvis’ closest friends,
musicians and singers such as JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, The
Jordanaires, DJ Fontana, Charlie Hodge, Myrna Smith, The Sweet
Inspirations and Joe Esposito. He recently portrayed Elvis in the hit TV
miniseries “Shake, Rattle and Roll” which aired on CBS and VH1. On Jan
6th 2005, just 2 days before Elvis’ 70th Birthday, Shawn became grand
champion at the $25,000.00 “World Elvis Tribute Artist Competition”. This
year he received “The Peoples Choice Award” from Gibson Guitar in
Nashville as “Best Concert Elvis”. Shawn was recently named the
international champion of BBC1’s World’s Greatest Elvis competition in the
United Kingdom. In August, Shawn was chosen by Graceland as the
winner of Elvis Presley Enterprises’ first ever Ultimate Tribute Artist
Contest in Memphis TN.
