Renowned Las Vegas performer, Big Elvis, will return to StonExpo this January to entertain attendees at the Marble Institute of America's (MIA's) Member-Only Happy Hour. Big Elvis first performed for MIA members at StonExpo 2006. People in attendance that evening have been clamoring for his return engagement, and this January, their wish will come true.
Big Elvis’s return is being made possible through the
generous sponsorship of Polycor, Stone World Magazine, and M S International, three
organizations that have long supported MIA in a variety of ways.
The Big Elvis Show is the longest running Elvis Presley
tribute show in Las Vegas.
Pete “Big Elvis” Vallee has attracted an international following of fans, and
continues to pack the house for each of his 15 shows per week. When Vallee
sings, his fans come alive, and the party begins. The artist's repertoire
consists of over 900 songs, including an abundance of Elvis music -- both well-known
hits and obscure movie tunes -- plus music from other performers of that era,
such as gospel, country (old and new) and Rock 'n Roll favorites.
Valle was named to the prestigious Time Magazine List of Top 10 Elvis
Impersonators (2010) for his "dead-on renditions of Elvis' most popular
songs." His voice, charisma and good nature, as well as the loss of
well over 500 pounds during the past five years have made Valle the subject of
numerous press pieces, as well as a recent feature article in Details Magazine
