TCB Rock and Roll Legends
One Night with You, Ultimate ELVIS!
Dean Z has dedicated his entire life to honoring the legacy of Elvis Presley, the “King of Rock ‘n’
Roll.” From his early days growing up in the desert of Lancaster, California, to stages across the
globe, he has shown time and again he is one of the best in the business today.
“The first song I sang on stage was ‘Jailhouse Rock.’ Every time I shook the audience would scream, and I’ve been shaking ever since,” Dean said.
At the age of 17, after performing in several shows of his own, Dean took off for the bright light city that would set his soul on fire…..Las Vegas!
Throughout the next 12 years, Dean performed from Vegas to Japan, Australia, Norway, Denmark, England, across Canada and the United States.
Dean soon earned a spot with the World’s Greatest Live Tribute Show, Legends in Concert.
In 2007 he moved to headlining the show in Branson, Missouri.
When he isn’t on stage as Elvis, Dean can be found producing plays, independent films and performing with his two bands, The Gimps and The Kraken.
In 2013, Dean decided to go after the title of Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist.
Sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. The Ultimate Elvis® Tribute Artist Contest™ involves hundreds of Elvis tribute artists competing in preliminary events around the world for an invitation to the finals in Memphis. He brought down the house and won the contest with his performance of Jailhouse Rock.
2014 was a banner year for Dean: he received the Heart Of The King Award in Las Vegas at the former Las Vegas Hilton on the same stage Elvis himself performed over 700 shows during the 1970s. He also fulfilled a childhood dream of performing for Legends In Concert at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Dean’s greatest pleasure that year was headlining for the national touring production Elvis Lives, a live musical highlighting Elvis’ career featuring champions from the Ultimate Elvis® Tribute Artist Contest™
