Shaun Klush, Elvis Tribute Artist
February 10, 2013
In an August 2004 write-up I did for this web site, I discussed Elvis Presley and alluded to his capturing his audience whenever he performed.
With the presentation here, I hope to transmit to the readers some of the exhilaration and excitement I experienced along with millions of others during Elvis's performing years. On the February 7 Late Night David Letterman Show, some of the Elvis showmanship, I thought, shone forth brightly when an Elvis tribute artist, Shaun Klush (who hails from Pittston, Pa - a town nestled between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre), captured some of the aura of "The King."
I had never heard or seen Shaun Klush before, but he has been around for several years and has won many awards for his talent. After viewing the TV show, I thought Shaun Klush stands atop the legion of many Elvis impersonators, singing a familiar, trademark Elvis song on the Letterman Show. What impressed me was the huge supporting cast of musicians: guitar, trombone, trumpet and violin playing in the background, and the impressive standup vocal accompanists.
I thought you might enjoy this performance, as I did.
