The King & You - World’s best Elvis impersonator in NZ

The King & You

World’s best Elvis impersonator ready to rock New Zealand

Auckland n Hamilton n Tauranga n Palmerston North

He was one of the most important figures of the 20th century pop culture. A cultural icon, referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "The King".

Now the memory and legend lives on in a very special concert event entitled "The Orchestral Sessions" featuring a 15-piece Orchestra starring one of the world's first and most-successful Elvis impersonator Max Pellicano, whose uncanny resemblance and equally chilling performance has mesmerised New Zealanders over the past two decades.

ELVIS TO THE MAX, starring Max Pellicano as Elvis, is just weeks away from arriving in New Zealand. Dates and booking details below.

It has been said by media worldwide that Max Pellicano's tribute Elvis To The Max goes beyond mere impersonation. Critics have described his performances as "Elvis resurrected" and 'reincarnated'. His recreation of "The King" looks, moves, vocal style, impressions and humour is so accurate, its awe-inspiring. You need to sound like the real thing and Max Pellicano has worked hard at that. Not only is the voice important, it's also knowing how to become the man himself on stage.

There are lots of Elvis impersonators around, but Max Pellicano is considered as the best. In addition, the costumes worn by Max Pellicano are exact replicas made by Elvis' personal tailor Bill Bellow. Elvis To The Max will re-create for one special night the 'The Orchestral Sessions", proudly presented in Australia by Abstract Entertainment.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
