Emilio Santoro is a World Class Elvis Lookalike and Soundalike. This is more than an Elvis Tribute show.
At only 19 years of age, Emilio is the Title Holder of the 2022 European Elvis Championship and currently holds over 6 winning titles for Elvis Contests, including the ‘People’s Choice’ Award in Canada at the beautiful ‘Niagara Falls Elvis Festival’ and ‘Images of the King’ Professional World Champion, a historic moment as he became Europe’s youngest world title winner ever, right on Elvis Presley Boulevard. Emilio also appeared in the finale of Americas Got Talent in September 2022 to incredible reviews by Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum. Available as a solo Tribute or with a Live Band.
Emilio hails from Weston-s-Mare and has been rising through the Elvis Tribute Artist ranks for a few years now.
He has picked up multiple awards and fans along the way and, in 2019, he made his long awaited USA debut in Elvis’s home town of Memphis during Elvis week.
His 2019 Elvis week experience culminated with the ‘Images of the King’ World Championship Non Pro Division where he triumphed at just 17 years of age. Following on from Memphis Emilio entered the 2019 Porthcawl contest and walked away as Grand Champion. He then completed the ‘Hat Trick’ in Blackpool at the ‘Return to Memphis’ contest in early November – it seems 2019 was Emilio’s breakthrough year…
Then along came Covid-19. Although this obviously put his career on hold the work didn’t stop and he used the opportunity to fine tune his craft, Emilio also produced his first two albums ‘With Love’ and ‘The Christmas Album’. His third album ‘At the Movies’ followed in 2021.
2022 started with a huge bang as Emilio was victorious in the 2022 European Elvis Championships in Birmingham UK which means he has now completed a ‘clean sweep’ of all the available European titles. This European title resulted in national media attention.
April 2022 saw Emilio win the ‘Peoples Choice’ award in Canada at the beautiful ‘Niagara Falls Elvis Festival’.
The competitive highlight (so far) of Emilio’s career happened in August 2022 when he overcame the most incredibly tough opposition to become Images of the King Professional World Champion, a historic moment as he became Europe’s youngest world title winner ever right on Elvis Presley Boulevard. Along came Tech company Metaphysic.ai and Emilio joined the team and appeared in a historic finale of Americas Got Talent in September 2022.
On the contest front he will now turn his attention to the last of the available titles, EPE’s Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist where he will begin the quest to qualify at several events!
Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
