Trent Carlini - The Dream King of Rock 'n Roll
Trent Carlini was born in Chicago, seven years after his parents immigrated to the United States from Italy. He became a Rock 'n Roll fan at the young age of five, and at age ten, began playing guitar. Within a couple of years, music had become a major part of his life.
Trent attended school in Italy. During his late teen years there, he produced a few records of his own music. With this accomplished, he moved back to the United States in 1987, making Florida his home. One could always find Trent, performing in local clubs!
With the King's death in 1977, Trent's musical direction changed. He decided to devote himself to recreating the style of the man that had influenced his life so greatly. In 1988, Trent was chosen to star in the Annual Birthday Tribute to the King at the Star Plaza Theater in Indiana. Performing with such greats as the Jordanaires, the King's own vocalists; J.D. Sumner & the Stamps Quartet; D.J. Fontana, the King's drummer; Charlie Hodge, the King's guitar man; and Joe Esposito, the King's right-hand man and road manager, Trent was a hit! Due to overwhelming popular demand Trent has been returning to his home town of Chicago and headlining a show each Jan. at the Rosemont theater.
In 1990, Trent Carlini was chosen "Entertainer with the Most King-like Charisma" at the Global Record's Star Search Contest in Dallas, Texas. In 1992, "Legends in Concert" producer John Stuart saw a video of Trent and promptly flew him to Las Vegas where he was hired as the King for his production there. Trent brought his incredible vocal range and charisma to the stage, performing as the King until September 1996.
Trent's uncanny resemblance to the King, his incredible vocal range, and high-energy charisma, has led to performances in Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, United States, and Italy, where the European media called him "The King of the Year 2000."
Trent has appeared on many television shows, including "Entertainment Tonight", "NBC Nightline", "Late Night with David Letterman", "The Oprah Winfrey Show", "Leeza", "ABC Primetime Live", "The Vicki Lawrence Show" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". He has also appeared on the Miss Universe Pageant, the National Arthritis Telethon and The Nashville Network. He has been featured in numerous world-wide publications, among them the National Examiner and Matissimo, Europe's number-one fan magazine, as well as appearing on the cover of "Cobietta," Poland's top-selling women's magazine.
