Kevin Bloody Wilson

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is remarkable. He has become a part of Australian Culture, a part of who we are and how we define ourselves. His DILLIGAF attitude is a quality to be envied. He’s been listed in Who’s Who, his entire body of work has been preserved for future generations with the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra and his fan base stretches from Broken Hill to Buckingham Palace.

Elvis To The Max

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’s looks, moves, vocal style, impressions and humour are so accurate that it is awe-inspiring.
