Subject: Porthcawl Elvis Festival '05

The Porthcawl Elvis Festival is now the biggest event of its kind in Europe, and last year attracted over 5,000 music lovers to Porthcawl from Dallas to Denmark.

This year's Festival will be taking place from Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October, and will feature Kraig Parker from Dallas, acknowledged as the world's No 1 Elvis tribute artist. Kraig will be backed by The Royals Tribute Band, his regular Las Vegas showband, and some very famous guests. His manager is the legendary Charles Stone, Elvis's former tour manager, who will have many memories to share with us.

We'll also be featuring The Sweet Inspirations, Elvis's gospel backing singers, who accompanied the King for eight years.

From closer to home, Martin Elvis from Malta will be making a welcome return, as will Swansea's own rising teenage star Jelvis, who made his debut at last year's Elvis awards. We'll also be seeing Colbert Hamilton from London again, who wowed audiences all over the town.

Texan authoress Sandi Haynes Pichon will be following up her success at last year's book launch to release her newest book of photographs taken when she knew Elvis, and will be launching it at the Festival too. Elvisly Yours will be selling Elvis mementoes and souvenirs, making this the place to be for Elvis fans.

We're bringing over many famous characters who knew Elvis well, including leading members of the legendary 'Memphis Mafia', who accompanied him everywhere, and they'll be telling tales in our chat interviews.

The events take place in pubs and clubs all over Porthcawl, and the main shows sell out very quickly at The Grand Pavillion, so we would urge anyone planning to visit to register at our website www.elvies.co.uk.

Last year we featured over 30 Elvis acts and hope to feature many more this year - maybe even one or two from your region.
