RICK CHARLES

Regarded as Australia's best Elvis Tribute Show artist, Rick Charles salutes Elvis Presley in the most spectacular show of its kind ever to be staged in this country. Backed by a cast of 20 musicians, singers and dancers in a full production show. Away from Elvis. Rick’s song repertoire is as long as it is wide, and crosses most spectrums of music. With several decades of performances at every major venue in Australia.

"Sounds more like Elvis than anyone I've ever heard apart from the real thing...Fantastic Show"
CHERYL CRITCHLEY – MELBOURNE HERALD / SUN

 

"He is an artist with outstanding talent who will no doubt go a very long way".
PREMIER OF VICTORIA - HON. MR. JEFF KENNETT, M.L.A.

 

'Rick Charles is one of the most Dynamic live performers in this country.

He has perfected Elvis! Voice, look and movements...Sounds even better than the King of Rock".
GLORIA KROPE - THE 500 CLUB

 

"Absolutely fantastic - Rick is the best I've seen and heard since the real thing. This boy can also move".
LILLIAN FRANK

 

"Rick is not an Elvis impersonator...

 There are so many impersonators around.

Rick's tribute to the one and only King is the best I've ever seen!”
ROBYN GOSS - ELVIS FAN CLUB OF AUSTRALIA

 

"He sounds like the real thing".
PHILIP BRADY - 3AW RADIO
