Gene Wolfe is a Rod Stewart impersonator based in Orange County. Gene really looks like him too. Orange County Magazine did a great article about who he is and what he does HERE. We shot in a small studio in Long Beach and wanted to give Gene a stage lighting look. He has some amazing outfits so I could get some very cool looks. I wish I could shoot his shoes because because they were these amazing two tone saddles shoes. A variety of them.
I wish he would have sung for me too. I think it would have made a better action shot but he wanted to lip synch it. It still turned out great and that is the most you can hope for. Thanks to everyone at Orange Coast Magazine. Great group of people.
Here’s a clip:
Since 1984, he has been performing as Rod Stewart, paying tribute to the British rock star by perfecting his natural Rodlike looks and singing voice. A longtime entertainer on the Orange County circuit, Wolfe has performed at the OC Fair as well as with the Pacific Symphony. But the 59-year-old impersonator says there’s more to his act than just his appearance. “I can get the crowd going, and that’s half the show. It really is.”
