James MaraisLocation: Based in Cape Town
James Marais is one of the top Elvis tribute artists in all of Africa, performing any song that Elvis performed in his lifetime!
James was raised on Elvis - it was practically the only music his family listened to - and started imitating the King or Rock and Roll from an early age. After school, he worked in the dancing entertainment business, where he incorproated some Elvis in the shows. In 2007 he decided to focus exclusively on impersonating the King, and has since taken the Elvis tribute title of Africa and represented South Africa in the world cup show in Wales where he came fourth.
James have been seen on TV shows Noot vir Noot, Jou show met Emo and has thrilled many audiences at various big festivals. He performs Elvis from his first day in the recording studio, to Elvis in the movies, 1968 black leather come back TV special until the very famous Las Vegas shows in the 70ths. He offers a show from each era, or is able to mix them all up into one showcase of spectacular moves, playful stage presence and of course iconic songs.
“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess.”
