Brian Evans Poster

Trivia (29)

He has released several successful recordings overseas.

He is the only singer in the history of trading cards to have been issued his own Upper Deck baseball card as an "Anthem Singer" after having performed the anthem 18 times.

He once owned three Starbucks coffee shops in Las Vegas, Nevada, and one in Boston, Massachusetts.

Was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, the same hometown as recording artist and director Rob Zombie. In an interview with The Vancouver Sun, Evans says of his hometown: "I was glad to leave a city that never knew how to move on from the past. It's amazing that with all that has changed in my own life, whenever I go back to Haverhill it seems the only person who did change was me, or others who left and saw that yes...there is a world out there."

Performed at The Desert Inn in Las Vegas from 1998-2000, where Frank Sinatra performed for decades. He was the first artist in the history of the Las Vegas venue to record a CD for commercial release called "Live at The Desert Inn." The venue was demolished for the new "Wynn Resort" venue.

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman awarded Evans his "own day" in a Proclamation for his "Live at The Desert Inn" CD. June 19th is now officially "Brian Evans Day" in Las Vegas, Nevada. The proclamation was awarded on June 19th, 2001.

In June of 1991, Evans was convicted of felony theft, and sentenced to six months probation after he called a Los Angeles travel agency impersonating Casey Kasem, and charged $2,900 in expenses that the agency attempted to collect from the radio host. While on probation, Evans was invited to sing the national anthem at a Baltimore Orioles game. His probation officer told him he could not leave California, but Evans went to the game and was sentenced to a year in prison for violating the terms of his probation. He served around 9 months.

In the mid 1990's, after going to jail for impersonating Casey Kasem and ordering plane tickets, he appeared on the Howard Stern Radio Show twice; the first time he called in, and the second time in person, discussing a book he wrote titled Dreamer which detailed his life growing up, leading to his Hollywood and singing career. Stern got a kick out of Brian's Kasem impression.
