Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go Eric, go. That would be Eric Bressi, an Elvis impersonator who sings “Blue Suede Shoes” and other classics to longtime fans of the King.
Doing his Elvis act, says Bressi, helped him overcome a tough childhood and a father who told him he’d never amount to anything. Instead, Bressi used his looks to become an impersonator, bringing joy to people the same way his idol, Elvis Presley, did. In fact, he looks so much like the singer, he has to warn fans not to pull on his sideburns—they’re real.
