Albany-Schenectady-Troy, NY - Travis Powell, Elvis Tribute Artist, will grace the stage May 31 in an evening performance at the 11th Annual LakeGeorge.com Elvis Festival in Lake George, New York. Powell was named the Grand Champion of last year's Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, winning the prize from a field of more than 54 competitors.
"I'm beyond excited to return to Lake George for this year's festival," said Powell. "The crowd at the LakeGeorge.com event is phenomenal, and I'm looking forward to giving them a show they'll never forget."
Powell will perform on Saturday, May 31, as part of the headline show, "ELVIS: It's International," which will celebrate Elvis' cultural and musical impact around the globe. The show will take place at the Lake George Forum, with doors opening at 7:00 PM.
"Travis Powell brings an electricity to the stage that you want to be part of," said Jason Sherry, president of Sherry Management, LLC, and festival director. "As a seasoned performer with a voice reminiscent of the King, Travis allows the audience to experience a flashback in time."
During the early years of his career, Travis was an accomplished country rock performer, touring across the U.S. and writing and recording a song that hit the top 100 country charts. He began competing in Elvis Tribute Artist contests and won his first title in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in 2012. His recent win at the Charlotte, North Carolina, Auto Fair qualifies him to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis during Elvis Week, which will take place August 8 -18 in 2014.
