Many awards, tv and radio appearances along the way, it is his association with those who worked with Elvis that has been the highlight of his career. Meeting and working with those who were there at the time with Elvis has been such an amazing experience. Paul became first runner up in the Danish Images of the King qualifier in 2017.

The weekend offers a reunion with the Graceland band coming from Wales. They are used to playing for tribute artists at shows at home and abroad. The band has been a great success at the two previous Elvis weekends, so we are looking forward to seeing them back in Denmark again in 2018.
