Leo Days

I was an Elvis fan since I was 2 or 3 years old and my dad before that and my grandma before that and I just kind of learned about Elvis from them. As I got older I realized I could sing I went to local Karaoke clubs.  People asked if I did shows, when I was 14-15 years old.  I was like sure what is a show.

The very first thing that I did was a local talent contest at a county fair back where I am from the stipulations of winning the contest is that they carted you off after and winning and putting you stage to open up for the headlining act at that particular fair which was Clay Walker.  They put me on stage with 10,000 people watching and I was like scared.  So, I got over that right away and I think I am better now because of it.  

I didn't really start breaking it down and dissecting it until I was actually doing it for a living.  I was 16 at that point.  So, i was still in school so I wasn't doing it full time so I would go to school all day and then perform on the weekends and go out and do shows.

I wish Elvis wore short sleeves and shorts once in awhile because this stuff is hot on stage with the lights and everything with these outfits.  As you can see behind me you can see all of the outfits.  Some of these costumes wight a lot and I have a cape I wear that is about 15 pounds that goes with this suit, when you put the entire outfit together it weighs about 40 pounds.  So wearing that on stage and trying to dance around and sing can be a chore.  Imagine yourself carrying around another 40 pounds then you actually are and then you have to move around.  

I have always been a fan of Elvis's music.  I try to learn everything I can about the songs itself and why he performed the songs I he has and it inspires me.  

He is a musical icon and a fan of music everyone would have to be a fan of Elvis.  Everybody has a story that connects them to Elvis and it is interesting to me to hear about this and share with them.
