1. Check Out Elisa!
She had a young start compared to most, at only 17 years old she had managed to land a gig in Memphis Tennessee where she would settle after deciding to dedicate her career to singing. While in Memphis, Elisa got to know some key players in the local blues industry, and after landing a gig on the famous Rock & Roll spot “Beale Street”, she would end up meeting long time friend and fellow recording artists Kevin Paige.
During her time performing on Beale Street, Elisa showcased her awesome talents to thousands of listeners as many came to love her classic roots and style. For years Elisa would rock the crowds of Beale Street until a chance meeting would send her well on her way to stardom.
Having been introduced to Steve Perry, the lead singer of Journey, and Paul Taylor from the band Winger, Elisa would soon land a once in a lifetime opportunity to pack her bags and head for Hollywood! In 1996 Elisa would make her way to the heart of Los Angeles and with plenty of opportunities to expand her singing and songwriting career, Elisa had made it to the proving grounds!
As time went on Elisa would successfully create over thousands of catchy jingles and tunes that would end up appearing on nearly 1,000 T.V. shows and even in 5 feature films. With a few years of Hollywood and a professional songwriting career under her belt, Elisa would soon take a vacation to Las Vegas that would further expand her dreams of where she wanted to be. It was here in Vegas Elisa learned of a number of huge opportunities that could not be found anywhere else in the world!
Elisa Furr of iCandy!
Elisa was constantly reassured by a confident agent that she would make it big in Vegas without a doubt. Trusting in this boastful ally, she set off ready to see her name on the Las Vegas Strip. Upon arriving in Sin City, Elisa immediately landed a new spot performing in showrooms at the Paris Hotel and Casino. She would be so well received that less than a year later, Elisa would be featured as the star singer and lead showgirl for the long running and historic adult revue, “Jubilee” at Ballys.
After mass amounts of success in the historic Jubilee, Elisa would soon find the draw that would lead her to some of her biggest roles in Vegas yet. Elisa would utilize her love and appreciation for Celine Dion and mix it with her unmatchable beauty to create a tribute character often considered one of the best in town. As a Celine Dion impersonator she would see herself headlining a number of highly regarded tribute shows across The Strip.
Nowadays Elisa is the classic “self-contained” artist, utilizing her knowledge of music production she has embarked on a journey to solidify not only her solo singing career, but others as well! Now on top of being one of the most dynamic artists in Vegas, she is also one of the principal singers in Las Vegas’ classiest burlesque revue, iCandy: the Show! So don’t miss your chance to see this Memphis beauty do what she does best, LIVE on stage, only at Saxe Theater!
