About the performer

Wiggins began his journey as an Elvis Presley tribute artist at age 13 at Roosevelt Junior High School in Port Angeles. His dedication to perfecting his craft has earned him numerous accolades, including second place in Penticton’s amateur division in 2009 and a finalist spot in the professional category in 2010.

Wiggins then earned second place at the Seattle Elvis Invitational 2012 and 2013, and ultimately winning first place with his rendition of “Suspicious Minds” in 2014. This victory crowned him “The King” as Seattle’s Best Amateur Elvis.

Wiggins lives with his wife Judy and their two cats in West Seattle; they have three grown sons. While he maintains his career as an architect, Wiggins says his passion for Elvis keeps him performing during weekends.
