The Blue Suede Crew is a polished group of professional entertainers who pay tribute to the legendary Sons of Sun Records by successfully recreating the sights, sounds and spirit of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash as well as the Memphis Blues.
Leading the Blue Suede Crew is Scott Wattles. This charismatic entertainer has been recognized as one of the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the United States and Canada. Scott is an outgoing performer that skillfully captures Presleys throaty baritone and uninhibited gyrations. Specializing in the sexy black leather look of the 1968 Comeback to the slim white jumpsuit era of the early 1970s, Scott along with The Blue Suede Crew recreate the high energy Vegas style show that Presley performed during the peak of his career.
The tribute also features Keith Furry as the voice of Johnny Cash. Keiths renditions of classic Cash tunes are both awe inspiring and dead on true to the record. From the opening chords of Folsom Prison you will swear the Man in Black has returned from beyond to entertain you one more time.
Jan Daily adds her talent to the Johnny Cash portion of the show with her tribute to June Carter Cash. Together Jan & Keith, as Johnny & June, bring one of the most famous entertainment couples to life with "Jackson", "If I Were A Carpenter", "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man" and many other favorites.
Another featured artist with the Blue Suede Crew is Bobby Reynolds, aka Reverend Robert. Influenced by the Delta Blues Artist, Robert Johnson and the Early Jazz of Louis Armstrong, this mul#%@alented singer and award winning acoustic slide guitarist is well respected among his peers and other accomplished musicians. Reverend Robert has shared the stage with Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Warren Batts of Bill Haley and The Comets, as well as a Rockabilly Hall of Fame Member, Dale Hawkins.
The final pieces of the Blue Suede Crew include accomplished bass player, George Miller and multi-talented drummer, Dave Stephens. Leading the horn section, on trumpet and former member of the Doc Severinsen Orchestra, Glen Lip Lewis.
As one of the top tribute acts in the music industry today, it is obvious that this talent packed group of entertainers is turning heads from coast to coast. Be it their Memphis feel or the Vegas appeal, the Blue Suede Crew is your ultimate tribute band.
It is truly hard to measure the impact that Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash had on not only American music but also American culture. Both of these fascinating and talented men understood the challenges that accompanied childhood poverty. Their success in music also awarded them the joys and heartaches associated with fame and fortune. With all certainty, Gospel Music was engraved in the souls of these legendary entertainers.
In addition to the regular show and doing what no other tribute act has done before, The Blue Suede Crew has also recreated an entire 2 hour show dedicated to the Gospel Music made famous by Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. This show is a must see for people of all ages and all walks of life.
