Scuba Show Saturday Night Party: Live Entertainment
Co-hosted by Roddenberry Adventures
Charlie Franks presents: “HE NEVER LEFT THE BUILDING”
What does Elvis have to do with diving?
We first met him a number of years ago in Las Vegas at the diving industry’s trade show (the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association show). He walks the floor in his Elvis attire while dive industry people wonder, ‘Who the heck is that?’
He is Charlie Franks. Not just an Elvis impersonator, he is a first-rate act. His connection to diving in a minute.
Charlie has been a performer for most of his life. He formed his first 50’s Tribute Band at age 12. He also discovered early on his ability to mimic just about any voice and with coaching from his father, Samuel Franks, a former Shakespearean actor, Charlie amassed a repertoire of over 200 voices, ranging from TV and film actors to former presidents, cartoon characters, musicians and other celebrities.
At an early age he also began performing as Elvis.
Charlie has been performing professionally to standing ovations for over 30 years. About 12 years ago, Charlie developed The “Ultimate” Elvis Experience. Paying careful attention to detail, he recreated the Sound, Look and Charisma that “was” Elvis. Charlie’s reception was tremendous, and the performances earned him rave reviews.
In the spring of 2009 Charlie moved to Las Vegas, and brought a new show, “Me, Myself & Us!” to life. The show took you back over 60 years of pop culture, impersonating over 200 celebrities in his show at the Southern Nevada Center for the Arts in Las Vegas. About three years ago, he added a new show to his list of hits when he headlined and starred in the hit show “2 Kings” in the Crown Theater at the RIO Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Performing to packed houses every night, the show was an instant hit! He has performed the major hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, and on Saturday evening, June 6th, Charlie brings his act here.
Charlie stars in the multi-award winning documentary “Just About Famous” which is available at the iTunes store, GooglePlay, Amazon Prime and soon to be released on NetFlix. Watch the movie trailer at www.justaboutfamous.com.
Oh, his connection to diving. Charlie has a day job. He is an avid scuba diver, an Instructor Trainer Evaluator, and owns SCUBAfy dive center in Boulder City Nevada, where he certifies over 500 people to dive a year.
Come join Charlie under the stars at the Shark Lagoon, Aquarium of the Pacific.
