Patrick Johnson, star of Legends On Stage, is considered by many to be one of the elite tribute artists in the entertainment business. As a leading Elvis Presley tribute artist, he has traveled far and wide; recreating the music and excitement of Elvis Presley in concerts, casinos, and corporate events throughout the United States, Europe, and Canada. Audiences at Chicago’s Hard Rock Café, Rochester’s Kodak Theater and the Finger Lakes Casino in Canandaigua, NY have all enjoyed the music of “The King” in his shows.
A natural singer, with a dynamic voice and stage presence, Johnson captivates his audiences, young and old alike. His multi-generational appeal is made all the more evident when you see children with their parents and grandparents all watching the show together.
Johnson’s current production, “Elvis: The Concert Years” is a high-energy show, recreating what it was like to see Presley on tour in the early 1970’s. The 90-minute performance includes Elvis classics like “C.C. Rider,” “Burning Love,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and a multitude of others.
On stage, his Las Vegas–style recreation of an Elvis concert mesmerizes his audiences. As the lights dim and the famous Elvis theme music builds; you can feel the excitement growing. Johnson strides onto the stage, lights dancing on his jewel-studded belt and white jumpsuit, singing his opening Elvis hit. Those in the audience feel that they are very lucky to be in exactly the right place, at exactly the right time.
Johnson’s performances and spontaneous interactions with audiences glow with a genuine personal warmth while maintaining the fast, professional pace that makes up his live show.
Since beginning his professional career, winning talent contests and competitions all over North America, Johnson’s rich voice—perfectly suited to Elvis’ unique blend of ballads and blues, rock and romance—has worked along with his unassuming good looks and audience appeal, vaulting him to the top of his craft. In a field already crowded with those craving instant fame and glory, Johnson is one who has spent more than a decade working hard and perfecting his skills. As the saying goes, “many are called, but few are chosen.” As you will see, Johnson is surely among the very few entertainers who can be justly described as “chosen.”
