For over two decades as a unique performer in the tribute and entertainment business Steve McCoy, who is known as the worlds greatest Tom Jones impersonator is the story of excitement, struggle, sweat, passion, determination, charisma. Growing up in New Jersey he spent his childhood organizing performances for the neighborhood kids, arranging bands, even rigging theatrical equipment to pull off his own special effects in his basement. “It’s in his blood”!
In 1989 he entered a Tom Jones look-a-like contest where Sir Tom Jones himself was the judge. He won first prize, which then led him to Las Vegas, where he has been a mainstay on the Las Vegas strip for over 25 years performing in the world famous “Legends In Concert”.
Steve’s performed as Tom Jones in theaters and nightclubs throughout the United States as well as world-wide in cities such as Berlin, Thailand, Indonesia, Moscow, Stockholm, and London.
“It’s a long way from my hometown, but man what a blast, I’ve met a lot of great people and have seen a lot of great things.” says McCoy. “This is all I’ve ever wanted to do. And the proof that anything you want, anything. If you put your mind to it, and you truly believe in it… it will come true”!
Recently while performing in Las Vegas, Tom Jones personally brought Steve up to the stage and introduced him by saying, “He’s the best I’ve ever seen…he does me better than me!”
…High praise indeed!
Steve has been given the biggest thrill of all, what an honor of being the inspiration behind author Gale Martins new mystery novel, WHO KILLED “TOM JONES” which has received critical acclaim and numerous writer Awards.
A truly outstanding career for a truly outstanding man and performer!
