After playing to diverse audiences at weddings and Barmitvahs and at German Oompah gigs for a number of years, Damon decided to zero in on Rock 'n Roll. While there is no shortage of bad Elvis impersonators, there are very few really good ones. South Africa's own Damon Howard is one of the best, attesting to this is the fact that he was awarded South Africa's Best Elvis Impersonator at a competition held at Caesar's Casino.
