Named King of Kings three times over at some of the world’s largest Elvis tribute competitions, Roy Leblanc is a living portrait of one of entertainment’s biggest, brightest stars. Sporting an accurate costume, jet-black pompadour, and expertly curled upper lip, Leblanc belts out hits from across the royal oeuvre, including the romantic “Love Me Tender,” the old-fashioned hip-shaker, “Blue Suede Shoes,” and Presley’s famous musical travel guides, “Viva Las Vegas” and “Heartbreak Hotel.” Whether backed by his four-man band, a 29-piece orchestra, or the vocal stylings of the Sweet Temptations themselves, Leblanc’s tribute act is the surest way to see a living Elvis Presley without becoming a tabloid photographer.
