His version of "Poor Man's Gold" is excellent. I did not like the moves he made, that was rather "imitating", but all in all it was a fine performance. Being Dutch you can be proud having such a good singer in your country.

11 Tracks. The TCB-band was unfortunately without Jerry Scheff, but he was replaced skillfully by a Belgian bass player, who also made the arrangements for the orchestra. Neither can hold a candle to Elvis Presley, of course. stream caused standing ovations. See But just a matter of taste and opinion, I guess. It is Bouke and not Bourke..and nobody says that Bouke is better than Elvis. Singer Bouke Scholten from Emmen, by no means an Elvis impersonator, was hand picked to sing at Elvis Presley’s memorial marking the 35th anniversary of the singer’s death last Thursday, August 16.. But I just have enough of singers that "flow" on the succes of Elvis. I have never been to Graceland.

Fully respect your point of KingKreole, benny scott is right. All the best to U. :�B�YMx�Z3Cx� { Loesje ~ Sorry; maybe I was being too defensive on Elvis' behalf.

Of course we knew Bouke from the CD that was included with one of the magazines of ElvisMatters and we saw some of his songs on YouTube, but we weren’t ready for what was coming. TrackBack URL, Your email address will not be published. But I wouldn´t like to read a whole lot about various young singers all over the world on the site.

<> And live before an audience, with only Glen on the piano! I probably was. I was really blown away by his performance, the voice, charisma,it's all there.I remember that a while ago, when the first announcement for the 2 concerts was made,( or was it when the free CD with 3 songs by Bouke and Glenn Hardin was sent to the members of Elvis Matters, have to look it up , but that's not the point )some members of this site asked " who is this guy Bouke, never heard of him " ( or something like that ). Singer and Eurovision commentator Jan Smit recently appeared on a Dutch talk show and opened up about the 2019 selection process. He was selected (among many) to sing at Elvis’ memorial marking the 35th anniversary of the singer’s death. <> And that is part of my appreciation--he does tracks that Elvis was known to have played around with, but never recorded officially in a studio. And why should his performance not be discussed on this site ? Or are you all simply refusing to accept that it is possible? Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Ton Bruins, I am in full agreement with you.

After all, the guy performed with the TCB-band . I don't want anyone to sing like or imitate Elvis. Many people love Elvis his rendition because of his remarkable touching and recognizable voice- a voice that even made this rendition in the end of his life worthywhile to many listeners..

And now, back to basics , ELVIS ! Well, those who never heard of or heard him : better surf to YouTube, enter "Bouke" and listen to the guy who won the Dutch contest "Waar Is Elvis " ( "Where Is Elvis"). The Wedding. Singer Bouke Scholten from Emmen, by no means an Elvis impersonator, was hand picked to sing at Elvis Presley’s memorial marking the 35th anniversary of the singer’s death last Thursday, August 16. BOUKE. To say the true, I really don't care. Bouke started his musical career when he was 7 years old by . It's a good thing we all do not have the same taste(s), would rather be boring, but.. to each his own. [2][3] In 2018 werd hij genomineerd voor de cultuurprijs van de gemeente Emmen. �e�1�C �� �@ؙ�A�@C ��K��@�ȅ������|��*Mx�� D��v��M-�̡�X�6y� �P��k&�8 ��H���{�斘~��.7���P�����:p���-8*7`:_aly!W�qkD^�S��.݌a���u ��̙1� E���1`� צ���A�aa=�hՂ��Z]�����b:R��Xd׈t�mD�;��#o��A�7���6,,*�������T�m��G��i��,j Obviously, I wasn't there to witness and hear what you heard, but I was able to hear a studio version of Bouke singing "Unchained" on YouTube. Personally I'm not pretending Bouke sang Unchained Melody better than our man, but if you weren't there that night you can't judge. Either way, Bouke is a fair Elvis impersonator, a pale imitation of a great artist. Unchained Melody was indescribable.

They don't have to be more tolerant, on the contrary : I think they sometimes are TOO tolerant when one reads the words some members use to give their personal opinion ! Loesje ~ I was corrected, a rightfully so, because I was spelling the poor guy's name wrong. Ton, I have no problems with the voice, of course I'm nut sure if he's trying on purpose to sound like Elvis or if it's his real "sound" . Always El. I do NOT agree, I did not hear Elvis, I heard Bouke and it was really great, great, great. I don't go to a religious website and read about how Jesus was great, but this new priest or pope does "The Lord's Prayer" even better and made Jesus' version "turn pale".

All the high notes, all the vocal tricks, he does it splendidly! 2 0 obj Also Proud Mary, Polk Salad Annie and Suspicious Minds got a spectacular treatment by singer, band and orchestra. This was not only because of Bouke’s singing, but also because of the great solos by James, Glenn and Ronnie (okay, Frank did a nice bass solo too). Hover Telemark ; … Always El. And I know that he doesn't look like Elvis. After checking the YouTube files I decided not to attend. Never went to the TCB Experience, even when they had Elvis up on the screen, why should i? Of course there will never be another Elvis and Bouke is not supposed to be equal like our man, but there is no need at all for that, Elvis was (and IS) Elvis, and Bouke is Bouke. It's different, not better. My words exactly :-) Couldn't agree more!
