Elvis is IN the building!

I work with Richie as part of the NYC Wedding & Corporate Orchestra, "Current Affair Music". In the nearly 2 years I've been with this group, replacing American Idol finalist Pia Toscano, I can say that Richie is by far the BEST male vocalist I've ever had the pleasure of working with. His tone is smooth and consistent. It has a piercing tamber which goes right to your heart. Although I get to hear him sing everything from Bobby Darin to Bon Jovi, there is nothing I love more than watching him shine while performing as an Elvis Tribute Artist. It is truly where he comes alive. You can tell he has a great love and respect for the King and when in costume and in his element, you can't even believe it's not the real thing up on that stage. He is someone I have and would recommend to anyone looking for a great Elvis performer or a great singer in general. He is warm, takes his time with and gives attention to his audiences and is extremely engaging. You'll love him!

Overview

When you come to my show you get energy authentic costumes and a great band or great tracks to help recreate the Elvis Experience. Being the same height and weight as Elvis in his prime adds to the illusion. I sing all the songs that one would expect when watching an Elvis tribute show. Being true to what Elvis did i give away scarves and kiss the ladies just like the man himself.

Richie Santa " A Tribute To The King"

My name is Richie Santa and i am a professional singer / Elvis tribute artist based out of Staten Island New York. My career started over twenty five years ago. I have performed well over one thousand shows ranging from weddings / corporate / concerts etc....I have covered such artist as Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Bocelli, Frankie Vali, Aerosmith , Journey, etc... The list goes on and on, but my favorite entertainer is Elvis. He is the reason i became a performer.It was his influence that has lead me to a career in entertainment. I have been an Elvis fan since the age of eight and although i enjoy singing songs by other artist i can truly say that nothing gives me as much pleasure as singing a song by the king. He has had a major impact in my life .So for me it is an honor to do a tribute the greatest performer to ever grace a stage. There will never be another Elvis Presley. He lit the torch all we can do is try and keep it burning
