Tom JonesPerformed by Steve McCoy
"I'm living a dream!" That's how Steve McCoy describes his performance tribute to Tom Jones in the award-winning stage show, Legends in Concert at the Imperial Palace. At the young age of five years old, McCoy began impersonating Jones in his basement in Barrington, New Jersey. His shows were so popular he charged his friends fifteen cents each to watch him perform his Jones gyrations.
His success in the neighborhood encouraged McCoy to enter an impersonator contest sponsored by a Philadelphia radio station. With the real Tom Jones as a judge, McCoy was crowned the winner and his career impersonating the Welshman began.
From there, McCoy went on to a new show called "The Hit Parade" where he caught the attention of the producers for the international impersonator show, Legends in Concert. McCoy joined the cast in 1991 to rave reviews for him and the show. "I feel the live band and the genuine performances are the elements that really energize the show."
McCoy socks it to them with Jones hits "It's Not Unusual" and "Love Me Tonight." Women scream while enjoying tongue in cheek flirtations, before McCoy invites the whole audience to join in a rousing rendition of "Delilah." From the cool cadence of "What's New Pussycat" to the soul wrenching "I Who Have Nothing" McCoy pays homage to the magic that is Tom Jones.
