“Randy’s the best I’ve ever seen.”
Red Robinson – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Legend
“…the best of the best…” – Vancouver Sun, 2013
Randy ELVIS Friskie is touring with his Las Vegas Show Band in Tribute To The King of Rock and Roll – Elvis Presley. Friskie’s spine tingling performance brings the King to life for an entire generation of people too young to have experienced Elvis when he was alive, and for the legions of people who remember the anticipation of every new record and movie. Randy ELVIS Friskie has been referred to as “The World’s Best Elvis Tribute Act”. He has enviably mastered Elvis in the three exciting stages of his career, the fabulous 50’s, the spectacular 60’s, and the sensational 70’s. Randy seemed destined to be a performer. Born into a musical family, he began singing in his father’s country band at an exceptionally young age. A 12 year old Randy Friskie experienced the thrill of a lifetime seeing Elvis perform live in concert – thus changing Randy’s life forever. By the age of 17, Randy began performing Elvis songs in a band he formed with his brother. Audience response was overwhelming, leading Randy to audition for the “Elvis, Elvis, Elvis” show. Randy was selected over dozens of applicants. While appearing in that show, Randy was approached by Expo ‘86 officials asking him to create his own show for the World’s Fair. Performing at Expo ‘86 to sold out audiences for seven weeks straight, Randy’s career was launched and he never looked back. Randy starred in the movie, “It’s Only Make Believe”, and has appeared in numerous television and radio commercials. He has performed in Las Vegas and Reno with “Legends In Concert” and “American Superstars.”
He has also appeared with Bob Hope, Pat Boone, Bobby Curtola, Mickey Gilley, Donna Presley (Elvis’ Cousin), Sam Orbison (Roy’s Brother), and Bill Burke (editor of “Elvis World” and former publicist.) The magical atmosphere and warmth that Randy creates captivates audiences with an evening to remember. Obviously humble, the soft spoken Friskie states, “I prefer to think of myself as someone performing a tribute to the greatest performer that ever lived.”
Cassandra Friskie is Randy’s daughter. Now 23 years old performs with her dad Randy ELVIS Friskie. Born into a musical family, Cassie showed a desire to be an entertainer at an early age (just like her father). By the time she was three, she had an impressive repertoire of songs, which she never hesitated to perform, anytime – anywhere!
