|David Cazalét was born in Long Island New York. He is the 4th son of his Australian mother Beryl and his American father George.|
George met Beryl during World War 2 while on R&R in Sydney and married her soon after meeting. Thankfully George survived Pearl Harbour and the rest of the War and went on to father his five sons!
The family immigrated to Australia in the 1960’s settling in the Western Suburbs of Sydney. The family had a brand new Astor 3 in 1 TV / Radio and Record player that in 1969 was the best TV in the street. George would play Mario Lanza and Mitch Miller records all day on a Sunday, filling the house with beautiful music, however occasionally Beryl would be allowed to play her Elvis records, she had two, “Elvis for Everyone” and “Californian Holiday” (Spinout.)
On hearing Elvis’ voice, young David still in “short pants” was spellbound by the magical feeling that came out of the speakers. From that moment David would sing Elvis songs at family gatherings then later to his friends and teachers at school. David never ever felt alone, he always had a song to keep him company, and today nothing has changed.
Turning to professional entertainment in 1992, David’s career has been successful and very diverse. Taking advantage of his duel-nationality he performed in Las Vegas during the 90’s at many corporate events. He went on to star for 4 years straight, performing in big budget production shows in Japan. His journey through Elvis’ music has been a rewarding one indeed. The biggest reward came in 1999 when he married his most beautiful showgirl Suzie and started a family.
David Cazalét, today celebrates Elvis’ music with the same sincerity and respect he always has. His voice in 2015 has the same impressive range of previous years with perhaps a deeper richness that comes with vocal maturity.
As David’s career marches on through the 21st century you can be sure it’s to the beat of Jail House Rock! With every performance being a celebration of the life and music of Elvis Presley.
As a critic once wrote “The King lives in Cazalét!”
Long live the King.
