LAKESIDE, Ohio – July 27, 2007 – Celebrate the “King” with the “Ultimate Tribute” show starring one of the world’s finest Elvis Presley impersonators, Mike Albert. Albert and the Big “E” Band will turn Lakeside’s Hoover Auditorium into Graceland through a powerful musical tribute 8:15 p.m. Saturday, August 11.

Born and raised in Ohio, Albert is more than your typical Elvis impersonator. His “Ultimate Tribute” has acclaimed worldwide recognition for the respectful portrayal of the “Father of Rock-n-Roll.” The show had its beginnings with Albert using sing-along tapes of Elvis’ greatest hits. Since then, he has won several major world “Elvis” contests. Increasing demand for his shows resulted in putting together a seven-piece Big “E” Band, to emulate the sound Elvis’ band had in Vegas and on tour. An appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show and being featured in six music videos on the national show “A Current Affair” with Maury Povich, further exposed audiences to Albert’s talent.

The actual vocal groups that backed Elvis (the legendary Jordanaires and J.D. Summer and the Stamps Quartet) have toured with Albert’s show across the U.S., Europe and as far as Australia and New Zealand. Albert’s style, charisma and ability to get the audience involved in the show have proven to be quite the crowd pleaser. Fairs, festivals, and dinner shows have established long-term relationships with Albert and his band that draws sold-out crowds year after year.

Albert’s powerful voice lends itself well to every type of Elvis’ music – 50s, 60s, and 70s rock and roll and love songs, as well as a very successful gospel/Christmas show. Since Elvis had so many hits, Albert makes it a point to keep the show fresh with an ever-changing song line-up. Special requests are often delivered to audiences who are “All Shook Up.”
