Promoting Tweed Tourism Through Arts and Entertainment

Alessandro Votta

Alessandro Votta

Born and raised close to Rome (Italy), Alessandro Votta love for music started very early, listening for hours to my dad playing every kind of music with his 12-strings guitar or his organ. Avid Elvis fan since the early 80’s, when his brother bought a cassette tape with the early rock’n’roll songs on Side A, and the 70’s ballads on Side B. He has travelled the world before finally settling in Calgary with his beautiful family in 2012. Since visiting Memphis in March 2019, all the puzzle pieces came together: the 1963 Cadillac, the first jumpsuits, the first Elvis tribute gigs.

He has done a lot of Facebook live shows during the pandemic, being invited by various international Elvis fan groups to perform for them. The response from the fans has been amazing and it motivates him to keep on rocking! His goals while performing are to have fun, to challenge himself   and to be able to transmit to the audience his unconditional love and passion for this amazing entertainer and human being.
