Colorado Springs Elvis Tribute Artist Aaron Black
Aaron Black owes his entire Elvis career to two pitchers of beer and a karaoke contest! He won 1st place singing Blue Suede Shoes at an Air Force Base Club and then entered an Air Force Tops-in-Blue Talent Contest a few weeks later. He won 1st place in that too, the first of six awards he has won! Aaron has been performing his Elvis Tribute for 29 years (He has now been performing as Elvis longer than Elvis performed as Elvis!!) and has won several awards for his show. He is an avid fan, memorabilia collector and is an expert on the Elvis Presley story. The five Elvis suits that he currently wears are authentic $3,000-$4,000 recreations of Elvis' most famous suits, including the Aloha Eagle Jumpsuit worn in the Aloha From Hawaii TV concert! These suits are created by some of the same people who created Elvis’ original suits and are actually licensed by Elvis’ estate.
A highlight of his full show is “Instant Elvis,” where an audience member gets dressed as Elvis and they sing a duet together! Aaron always mixes a little humor and Elvis trivia into every hip-shaking show.
Aaron is often asked if he is lip-syncing, but it really is him singing. He has even performed for two people who knew the real Elvis and both gave him high marks!
Aaron has always been an Elvis fan. As a child, he saw Elvis perform live six times. He even met his future wife the day after Elvis died when she asked him about the black armband he was wearing. They were married a few years later and she now sings backup in his show!
Aaron served on submarines in the Navy and was also an Air Force Intelligence Officer and still teaches space operations for the Air Force at Peterson AFB.
