I’ve been playing keyboards in the Elvis tribute system now for a little over 11 years. I work directly with the top ETA’s including Taylor Rodriguez, Dwight Icenhower, Ryan Pelton, Dean Z, Ben Portsmouth, Justin Shandor, and working with pretty much all notable ETAs and other tribute artists and award winning bands in the industry. I call Milwaukee my current home.
