Pete Vallee as Big Elvis

The Piano Bar at the Harrah's Las Vegas

Indefinite      Every Mon. Wed. Fri. for three sets 2pm, 3:30pm, & 5pm Free Show.

Pete "Big Elvis" Vallee began singing as a youngster in his local church, where he was told that he sounded like a young Elvis.

By the age of 13, Pete learned to play the guitar and put together an act. He was not prepared for the unbelievable response he received that year from a packed audience of students and parents when he sang "Jailhouse Rock" at a school talent contest. Pete began sitting in with local bands in Seattle and by the time he was 14, he had a regular gig with Ricky and the Starfires, playing with them every weekend and eventually moving with the band to Las Vegas, where he remained until moving back to Seattle to complete his studies.

A number of years later, Pete returned to Las Vegas, and began performing on a regular basis. This clean cut, good natured man with a voice that sounds like Elvis respects the King in every way.

A collector of Elvis memorabilia, Pete admires his namesake and tries to stay true to the King's persona as a man who loved and was loved by his fans, and maintained a sense of loyalty to them. When Pete sings, his fans come alive and the party begins.

Pete's repertoire includes an abundance of Elvis tunes, as well as Louis Armstrong, some country, gospel and other favorites. He is currently appearing at Harrah's Las Vegas in the Piano Bar on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 2pm - 6pm

Pete also performs a number of charity events in the area.
