There are Elvis impersonators aplenty in Las Vegas, but one of the most popular is Trent Carlini. Starting this Monday, March 9, Carlini will be officially launching “Elvolution” for seven shows each week in Steve Wryick’s magic theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
Carlini, who came to Las Vegas in 1990, performing in “Legends in Concert” for six years, then followed for five years in “The Dream Kings” in the Boardwalk, says the “Elvolution” title is about how much Elvis fandom has evolved since Elvis’ death in 1977. “People are actually appreciating the (tribute) artist’s talent other than enjoying the Elvis music. People recognize me more as a talent more than someone just hiding behind a mask.”
