Elvis Presley Tribute: Chance Tinder
Chance has been a part of the Elvis Presley phenomenon since the late 1980s, when he was first discovered in Southern California by none other than Bill Medley of the 1960s ‘blue eyed’ soulful musical super duo, “The Righteous Brothers”.
Chance is also alumni of the award winning Las Vegas celebrity look-alike production shows, LEGENDS IN CONCERT & AMERICAN SUPERSTARS and most notably, over 7,000 performances with Casino Arizona’s SHOWSTOPPERS LIVE, in beautiful Scottsdale Arizona. That’s two shows a day, 6 days a week, for nearly 12 years!!!
Today, Chance continues to tour both nationally and internationally with his “Salute to Elvis” tribute show… Chance is more than your everyday Elvis Tribute Artist. He’s an accomplished actor, recreating a legendary character… As seen on stages across America, Europe and Asia.
Chance has also been seen in movies and television, including but not limited to: MTV, VH-1, HARD CORY, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, ABC/CBS/NBC NATIONAL NEWS and multiple other international and regional ‘talk shows’.
MOVIES: Death Becomes Her, Honeymoon In Vegas, Psycho Sushi.
MUSIC VIDEOS: Cheryl Crow’s “Leaving Las Vegas” and Go West’s “King of Wishful Thinking” (Featured in the movie ‘Pretty Woman’).
Chance’s secret is believing it’s not so much the voice that is most important, but it’s knowing how to become the man himself on that stage! It’s basically the attitude of Elvis Presley… Shy but confident… Knowing exactly what he’s doing!
Chance doesn’t simply imitate or sing the songs, he acts the way Elvis did, moves the way Elvis did, and adds the slender nuances of expression that only an actor will add after invested hours in studying for his role.
