James Rogers

In the early 1980's, James Rogers was trying to land a recording contract and was advised to enter a talent contest at a theme park in the Smokies called Silver Dollar City. Out of 2,000 contestants, James won the 1983 National Mountain Music Festival at Silver Dollar City in Pigeon Forge, TN which would later become Dollywood, his place to entertain for over thirty years. Later, the Dollywood corporation became his business partners in Music Mansion in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee from 1993 -1998. During this time, James earned the title of "the number one most attended show in the Smokies" and won several awards, including the Peoples' Choice Award for "BEST SHOW" 1997 and 1998, "BEST THEATER" 1996, 1997, and 1998, and "BEST ENTERTAINER" 1997 and 1998.

A Tribute to the King starring Travis LeDoyt

Travis LeDoyt was born the third of five children, in Greenfield Massachusetts, in the late 1970's and it was evident at an early age that Travis seemed destined to entertain. His impish behavior and clever wit were responsible for providing a good deal of levity and laughter within the LeDoyt household. Growing up, Travis was exposed to a broad variety of musical styles, from Country to Swing, to Rock & Roll, as well as Classical and before long, Travis was writing his own songs. Over the years, Travis LeDoyt has developed into a truly remarkable talent; singer, performer, songwriter, and musician (piano, keyboard, guitar), but most of all he is fast becoming one of America's most convincing, jaw-dropping Elvis tribute acts ever to grace the stage. Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, presenting hits and ambiance of 1954-1959. The award-winning LeDoyt was featured in the NY Times as the "World's Best Young Elvis."
