What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas – but when you’re in the city of lights, then be sure to check out some of the top celebrity impressionists. Their looks and voices are oftentimes flawless duplicates of the original. Amid the glitter and the glitz, these impersonators will make you feel like you are truly watching the stars themselves. In fact, even some of the original stars even think so. Here we take a look at the top 5 must see celebrity impressionists in Las Vegas:
“Rat Pack” Tribute Shows
Turn back the clock as you watch the incredible talent of three beloved stars come back to life in the “Rat Pack” Tribute Show. Starring Andy DiMino as Dean Martin, Gary Anthony as Frank Sinatra, and Louie Velez as Sammy Davis Jr., you’ll witness singing, dancing, and all-around entertainment as only the “Rat Pack” could perform.
In addition, these three get about as true to life as you can get with continuous jokes and pranks throughout the show. But watch out because, in this tribute, audience participation is required.
The Legends in Concert
When in Las Vegas, you can’t miss the fabulous and internationally acclaimed Legends in Concert. This long-running show has been hailed as the pioneer of live celebrity tribute artist shows.
Featuring the absolute greatest collection of celebrity artists ever assembled, you’ll witness stars from both yesterday and today, including The Blues Brothers, Elvis Presley, Cher, Madonna, Garth Brooks, and many more.
With its ever-evolving cast of superstars, the Legends in Concert has won high-ranking awards such as “Entertainers of the Year” and “Show of the Year.” To date, the Legends is the original and largest live celebrity tribute show in the world.
The Edwards Twins
They may not be household names, but the stars that Eddie and Anthony Edwards impersonate certainly are. Performing since the age of six, these talented actors have the uncanny ability to mimic just about anyone – and in this case, they are names in the likes of Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, Elton John, and Cher.
In fact, Barbara, Bette, and Cher have all seen the Edwards twins perform and have been amazed at just how close they hit the mark. Cher has even endorsed their show, and after viewing a DVD of the performers left at one of Barbara Streisand’s concerts, the singer noted that he looked more like her than she did herself!
Larry G. Jones – Comic Singing Impressionist
Celebrity impressionists aren’t all just about singing and dancing – and Larry G. Jones proves that. Jones’s award-winning show includes a hilarious comedy act that also adds in hit music from over the last 50 years.
Some of this performer’s impressions include those of Neil Diamond, Elton John, Cher, and The Phantom of the Opera. But Jones doesn’t stop with just mere celebrities. He also includes voice impressions of some of our more famous U.S. Presidents. Now that’s an all-around good time!
Eddie Powers as Elvis Presley
No Las Vegas impressionist route would be complete without visiting Elvis – and Eddie Powers is a world-class Elvis Presley performer and look-alike. In addition to his performances in Vegas, Powers has starred in movies such as “3000 Miles to Graceland” and “Honeymoon in Vegas.”
Not content with just his performance of Elvis songs and movies, Powers even has an Elvis Impersonator Similarity Chart posted on his website that points out the identical features between the two men in terms of height, weight, hair (natural color and style), astrological sign, birth month, and favorite sport – which is football, just in case you didn’t know.
