CLICK on Picture John Van Thiel–“The Voice of Elvis”
John Van Thiel of Racine, Wisconsin, mesmerizes audiences with his uncanny tribute to Elvis Presley. Whether singing an early rocker, a soulful ballad, or a hip-swiveling movie tune, John has mastered the Elvis sound so well that it just might give you goose bumps. “It’s all about authenticity.
I try to sound as close to the original as possible. People always think I’m lip-syncing…it’s the ultimate compliment.” Fans respond not only to John’s voice and appearance, but to his sincerity and humbling charm as well.
John’s passion for singing Elvis began at an early age, but it wasn’t until three years ago that he began his career as an entertainer after winning a top slot in a national competition his first time out. He now performs regularly at private, corporate, and public events throughout the upper Midwest. He occassionally guest stars with the Doo-Wop Daddies and the Oldies But Goodies Spectacular bands out of Milwaukee. John recently won both nights at the Parade of Kings invitational competition at the Menominee Casino in Keshena, Wisconsin.
What’s the best thing about portraying the King? “It’s the people. Everyone connects to Elvis in some way. I get to bring that to life for them and make it very personal. I’m really fortunate that I can make others so happy doing what I enjoy.”
Though he prefers the younger Elvis look, John loves singing all of Elvis’ material, especially some of the lesser-known songs. He portrays the King with sincerity and reverence.
You can purchase John’s new CD, “My Way,” as well as other merchandise at his shows. For schedule and booking information, visit www.TasseEntertainment.com 888-554-9898

How It Works: The front of the player positions are functional, pleasing to the eye and feature backlit panels at each of the four player positions. During game play the lights in the front of the unit sequentially chase, which looks great and adds to the excitement of play. When a player is the first to lockout (also known as buzz-in), by pushing the heavy-duty arcade type button, the backlit panel is illuminated on the front of that player position a “ding” sound is produced for amplification, the microphone for that player is turned on, and the master control console selects that player for score keeping.
Each of the player position front panels is equipped with 6-inch high visibility numeric displays for score keeping. The score can be increased (00,10,20,30 up to 90) or decreased (90, 80,70 down to 00) and can be seen up to 250 feet.
The cabinets of the player positions are designed to be functional and attractive, and the player positions are covered with heavy-duty cabinet carpet. For additional beauty and contrast jet black and charcoal gray cabinet carpet are used together. The player position hit-panels are made of a durable PVC material.
