Applauded singer-impressionist Tom Stevens brings his one-of-a-kind show to the Suncoast Showroom for two performances, March 26 and 27, each evening at 7:30 p.m.
Stevens performs his man show in throughout the country, paying tribute to more than 25 singers such as Tom Jones, Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Anthony Newley, Willie Nelson, Julio Iglesias, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Cher, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
Along with his remarkable singing impressions, Stevens’ comic wit incorporates many other celebrity voices such as Jerry Lewis, Archie and Edith Bunker, Jimmy Stewart, Bill Clinton, George Burns, Paul Lynde, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Carol Channing, Bill Cosby, Robert DeNiro and many more.
To capture every nuance of those to whom he pays tribute, Stevens spends countless hours perfecting each impression. He focuses on every aspect of the artist he’s portraying, both vocally and physically. His characterizations are so uncanny that he’s been accused of lip-synching – a criticism he takes as a compliment to his many years of hard work.
A native New Yorker, Stevens began his career appearing in clubs on the East Coast. His incredible likeness of Dean’s looks and crooning abilities were put to the true test when he performed at the fourth annual Dean Martin Festival in Dean’s hometown, Steubenville, Ohio. The overwhelming response to Tom’s impression from not only Dino’s fans, but the people who knew Dean when he was Dino Crocetti, provided Tom with return engagements to headline the festival for all the years to come. At the festival, Tom had the pleasure of meeting and singing with Dean Martin’s daughter, Deana Martin Griffeth, who enthusiastically approved Tom’s portrayal of her father saying she’s “Never seen anyone look and sound more like my Daddy.”
