Todd's Bio Page


Todd grew up in Andover, Minnesota. As a youngster he worked as a farm hand, played hockey, and rode his horse in the Anoka County Fair for 4H. (The horse was named "Chester")

It was during this time that Todd fell in love with music and discovered that he could emulate most of his favorite singers like Glen Campbell, John Denver and, of course, Elvis Presley!

At age 20, Todd started performing on stage with community and professional theater in The Music Man, Annie Get Your Gun, South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof, Brigadoon, The King and I, and Arsenic and Old Lace. Todd then began operatic voice training and was accepted into the Anoka Opera Ensemble where he performed in Carmen, La Boheme, I Pagliacci, La Traviata, Gianni Schicchi and The Mikado. He's probably the only classically trained ETA out there!

Todd Anderson started his career as an Elvis Tribute Artist by accident when he volunteered to appear as "Elvis" for a community variety show. He was booked for several private performances immediately after the performance.

He went on to win the LCO Casino Elvis contest and has been performing professionally for 10 years since then.

In 2004 Todd had the great idea to have an Elvis Tribute Artist contest and founded the "Contest of Kings at the Mall of America". For 6 years Todd served as Master of Ceremonies and Executive Producer. 

In 2006 - 2009 Todd performed for "Cruising with the King", an Elvis Tribute Cruise aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.
