"THIS IS TOM JONES"... The Tribute
About the Artist
For over two decades as a unique performer in the tribute and entertainment business Steve McCoy, who is known as the world's 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"!
Then it happened, in 1989 he entered a Tom Jones look-a-like contest in Atlantic City, where Sir Tom Jones himself was the judge.
He won first prize, which then leads him to Las Vegas, NV. where he
has been a mainstay on the Las Vegas strip for over 25 years.
He's starred in the award-winning show "Legends In Concert" and today he is a producer and owner of his own production company;
THE REAL MCCOY LLC. as well as a consultant and
manage a few young upcoming artists.
He's performed as Tom Jones in theatres and nightclubs throughout the United States as well as worldwide in cities such as Berlin, Thailand, Indonesia, Moscow, Stockholm, and London even in Beirut.
"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... 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's the best I've ever seen, He does me better than me"!
