Twenty-three years into his storied career, Darren Lee continues to channel the charisma of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, winning the title of World’s Best Elvis in Memphis on the 20th anniversary of the legend’s death. Lee gained notoriety as one of the longest-running Elvis tribute acts, performing on the Vegas Strip for 11 consecutive years. During his stint as young Elvis, the entertainer mastered the moves that once scandalized a nation, from swivelling hips to wearing a white jumpsuit after Labour Day. With dark, voluminous locks and the signature growl that marks such hits as “Hound Dog” and “Hurt,” Darren Lee celebrates the King’s unforgettable music and charismatic stage presence during a multimedia presentation that culls the best backup instrumentals and vocals. The intimate Scala Lounge houses King-impersonating artistry in a Vegas-style showroom, with a full bar and Memphis buffet offering Southern delicacies to fuel peanut-butter-and-banana-sandwich-eating contests.
