Anthony Shore’s Tribute to Elvis…
Is primarily presented in two ways. For smaller venues, and parties, you will find Anthony performing solo with backing tracks. For larger venues and events, you can see him backed by his All Star Band. Read on to learn more about Anthony and some of the talented musicians and singers who join him on stage.
At the age of 3 Anthony received his first Elvis record, and his love of a legend was born. As a child he practiced his singing, and by the age of 16 he was performing professionally. Before relocating to the United States in 2011, Anthony sang around Europe in places such as Spain, Cyprus, France, Tenerife, and London. Since moving to the states, Anthony has received numerous awards*, and enjoys getting to know people as he performs in a variety of private, public, and corporate settings. Anthony’s versatility allows him to perform in venues of all sizes, but he sets himself apart by producing quality shows throughout the year with his All Star Band.
After successfully launching his career in 2nd grade, singing Tura Lura Lural alongside his sister, Pat Curto’s career began its ascent. Since then, he has performed everywhere from the obligatory bars and ballrooms, to the deck of the USS Eisenhower Aircraft Carrier. In 2012 Pat was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame with Canoise, the band he co-founded in 1966. Born in Hibbing Minnesota, he now resides in Royalton, Minnesota with his wife Pam. When he’s not performing Pat works as a Certified Legal Video Specialist. He enjoys hunting and fishing with his brothers, golfing in a never ending “best ball” game, and hanging out with family.
At the age of 12, Jack Mansk found his musical destiny by way of an accident. After breaking his ankle at the start of summer vacation, Jack was in need of entertainment. Being stuck in a cast, with no video games, he was forced to choose between playing guitar or watching soap operas. Guitar won out, and he’s been playing ever since, even going on to receive a Bachelor’s of Music in guitar performance from McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul. Jack has a love of Elvis’ guitar greats James Burton and Scotty Moore. And when he’s not playing Elvis tunes with the All Star Band, you can find Jack teaching guitar, or playing with 80s pop super-show, Brat Pack Radio.
