Mat Shank

Mat Shank
Mat is from Gatineau, Quebec, a young man that started competing in the Elvis Tribute Artist (ETA) world in 2022.

It all began with a visit to Graceland in 2017. Mat was immediately impressed with the costumes and fashion style. That visit prompted him to find out more about Elvis’s life and his songs, learning them on his own and singing them alone and in front of his family, until his first public performance in June 2022.

Since the summer of 2022, Mat has continued to perfect his art, voice, and performances, attracting more and more fans with each show by becoming more popular in his own region, in different Canadian cities and in multiple cities in the USA.

Mat is a multi-award winner Elvis Tribute Artist (ETA). He has also won multiple times the People’s Choice/Fans Favorite Award.

He won his first competition at the 2023 Penticton BC Elvis Festival in June 2023. With only 1 year under his belt as an ETA competitor, this win led him to represent the Penticton Elvis Festival at the Ultimate Elvis competition in Memphis Tennessee in August of the same year.

In 2015, Corny was crowed Elvis Gospel Champion at the Collingwood, Ontario Elvis Festival. He was the Grand Champion of the 2017 Penticton British Columbia, Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival and competed with the top 20 Elvis tribute artists at the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition in Memphis, Tennessee.

Corny plays Elvis like no one else - his facial expressions and gestures are uncanny, and his voice is a dead ringer. His humorous twist makes his nonstop, high energy show unique. As he says, “a little less conversation and some more entertainment please”.
