Hi everybody, I have a double tribute show in London tomorrow night so I thought I would get everything prepared in advance. I will add an update to this blog in a day or two. As you can see from the image above is my Elvis and One Man Beatles show costumes I will be wearing.
What a great Elvis party it turned out to be (review on the testimonial page) https://www.elvis1066tribute.co.uk/testimonials/ . The party was a treble celebration for a wonderful couple Janet Windsor and Douglas Windsor, within the space of a week they celebrated their 70th and 71st birthdays respectively and also their 50th wedding anniversary. The celebrations were made even more special as Janet has recently battled and WON her fight against cancer and at this very moment they are flying off to Spain on a wonderful holiday present by their son and daughter. Before Doug retired he was a London carpenter and he made this wonderful stage to perform my Elvis Beatles Show at the bottom of the garden .
It was a glorious evening in London that night. The show included two Elvis sets separated by my one man Beatles show. My first set began at 8pm where I performed in the white Elvis Aloha jumpsuit, because it was a party I decided to come out to “Viva Las Vegas” to get everybody into the party mood early on. Ive had this conversation with many fellow tribute artists on this subject, and the start of parties or weddings can sometimes be the hardest as everybody has just arrived and not warmed up to the procedings. Once everybodys had a drink and the light fades people “come out of their shells ” so to speak.
Janet Windsor who was a lovely lady made us feel very welcome and made us refreshments while we were setting up prior to the show. We arrived early which I always prefer, there is nothing worse than arriving to set up after the party has started. She loved her music and with her friends danced and sang the night away.
My second set came on around 9.30pm and by now the light was fading creating real atmosphere on the stage with my LED lighting flashing away. The second set was my Beatles show, see everyone twisting to the great music hit ” Twist and Shout” was great to see. I could see the audience had really warmed up to the evening and was ready for my young Elvis set which began at 11pm. The whole evening was planned to finish in a New Years Eve style finish as that is when Doug’s birthday began on Sunday. It was a busy set for myself but it was very enjoyable for such nice people. A really special night out !!!
