Bernie began his career on stage at the age of 7 in a one-off performance at a talent quest in Opunake. It would be many years before he took the stage again - as Elvis in Australasia's Best Elvis competition. That led to a renewed interest in a lost love - entertaining. He formed the Custodians in 1997 and has continued to this day to indulge his love of entertaining in the most professional way.
He has not wasted any time since, having performed professionally on both sides of the Tasman. Even appearing on Channel Seven News as a confirmed Elvis sighting on the streets of Noosa in Queensland!
Back in New Zealand, he is noted not just for his occasional Elvis appearance but also his remarkably authentic Neil Diamond sound. Close your eyes and you can't tell the difference say his fans.
But that's not all, with a range of vocal abilities, Bernie can cover a range of genres. Enough to ensure a full night of variety that is sure to please most.
Combining a wicked sense of humour with great vocals and keyboard skills, Bernie is the consumate entertainer.
