El Vez

El Vez is the Latin sensation that is sweeping the Nation and the world, following successful tours in Australia, Germany, Spain, Norway, Holland, Austria, England, France, Belgium, Canada and more. A modern mulitcultural hybrid of Americana and Mexicano, he is more than entertainment, he is a thinking man’s Elvis, a post-modern King with a Latin twist, the Chicano experience presented and told through the songs of Elvis. Imagine Ceasar Chavez fronting a Punk Rock band, Liberace teaching Chicano Studies, Tom Jones singing about the Virgin de Guadalupe, throw in multiple costumes changes, dancing back up singers and a rocking band and you have imagined El Vez!

El Vez is like a Jukebox exploded and put back together again. The Music mixes and remixes last centuries music, matching and contrasting various genre and styles, 5 different tunes may find their way into one Elvis song, becoming an EL VEZ song. The subject matter is Elvis through a latino looking glass. "In the Ghetto" becomes "En El Barrio", "Suspicous Minds" become "Immigration Time". Elvis' logo's like TCB...become "Taking Care of Business" an ode to the undocumented workers of America. Mixed in with El Vez originals (ie; the zapatistas in chiapas, safe sex) it becomes a musicophiles history dream.

El Vez brings a social-political-La Vegas-via-Memphis by way of Mexico-Rock and Roll revue featuring his top notch band the Memphis Mariachis and the world famous Lovely Elvettes (Lisa Maria and Priscillita). El Vez has R-O-C-K’ed across U-S-A and Europe, headlining festivals and opening for such greats as David Bowie, Carlos Santana, Linda Ronstadt, and the B-52’s. With over a dozen CDs under his Elvis belt, merchandise that includes T-shirts, videos and locks of hair. El Vez is a cross-cultural caped crusader singing for truth, justice and the Mexican/American way. You’ll leave an El Vez concert feeling proud to be Mexican, no matter what nationality you are.
