DOING WHAT I LIKE TO DO
LARY GLEN ANDERSON hails from Olympia, Washington where he realized his ‘entertainment’ calling from his father Fred whose sage advice included, "out-sing, out-dress and out-perform ... but never forget to give back in every way possible". Lary landed his first radio job in his mid teens (he's still devoted to the medium, today). Then, before he moved out of his teen years, international pop singing icon and film star, Johnnie Ray, publicly claimed Lary as his son and introduced Lary throughout the elite in HOLLYWOOD.
Among the many celebrities that Lary has befriended, Lary met one of his favorites, Elvis Presley. After Presley's death, Lary created ELVIS MANIA through which he toured the country in full ELVIS regalia and performed an all-ELVIS PRESLEY cover concert, thrilling sell-out audiences from coast to coast. For years, Lary Glen Anderson was the most sought-after ELVIS impersonator in Las Vegas.
In addition to Elvis Presley, Lary Glen Anderson is still considered to be one of the most accurate-sounding impersonators of music legends like Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Engelbert Humperdinck and of course, Johnnie Ray. And rounding out his line-up of Las Vegas stage shows, Lary also offers a very special tribute show out of love for his father, REFLECTIONS OF JOHNNIE RAY.
Lary’s multi-faceted professional CV extends past his vast entertainment accomplishments as a long-time
Las Vegas entertainer, actor, published author and award-winning casino PR host. Lary’s resume includes his work as a volunteer fire-fighter, criminologist, former police officer, town historian and minister. And while working for DELCO / General Motors in the mid 1980s, Lary solved a troubling digital issue and improved quality control processes for NASA. As a result, Lary was awarded NASA’s highest honor, as presented by Astronaut Carl Mead and witnessed by U.S.A.F. Colonel Beebe and other high level officials and executives... the annual SILVER SNOOPY AWARD!
"In my life, I have been so blessed. And every performance is with honor to those I cherish; my parents, sisters, my beautiful daughter Krystle and Johnnie Ray. And of course, those amazing talents who I'm honored to cover. "
