Ben Portsmouth as Elvis.

Story appeared in: Seniors | December 6th, 2017



THE King is back!
The world's number one Elvis tribute artist Ben Portsmouth will be performing in January 2018 in the Whitlam Theatre at Revesby Workers' Club.
Ben, a multi-talented musician, singer and songwriter had Elvis's DNA in his blood from an early age.
His father was an avid Elvis fan and Ben grew up on a diet of Elvis songs.
Having honed his musical talent, Ben started his journey as an Elvis tribute artist in 2005 when he formed the 'Taking care of Elvis' band.
Audiences quickly realised that this was someone with a special talent.
He looked like Elvis, sang like Elvis and had an on stage charisma that had audiences believing at times they were watching the King himself.
In August 2012, Ben made history when he won the Elvis Presley Enterprises' 'Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist' contest in Memphis; the only artist from outside the US to ever win this prestigious title.
On this night, you will see the live performance that left David Letterman at a loss for words exclaiming, "Oh my God, Oh my God!" when Ben headlined his show in 2013.
Catch 'Elvis' on January 27 from 8pm. Tickets are $55 and can be purchased at the club's main reception or at rwc.org.au
