Hi Guys

As promised my reveiw of Lee Memphis King at Buxton Opera House.

The show started at 7.30pm, Firstly Buxton Opera House is a brilliant venue, we had seats in the stalls on row J, which is 10 rows from the front, yet it seemed so close to the stage, the whole place is like a tardis, its big yet you never seem too far away from the stage. Anyway we got seated and there was two video screens either side of a huge Elvis Light on the back drop, the stage was so deep, on the video screens they were playing clips from BBC's Worlds Best Elvis Competition, which Lee Finalised in. As Vernon Kay announced Lee Memphis King on the video out he came on stage in Black pants and white jacket with white shoes and got straight into Blue Suede Shoes, he did about 5 songs in this era of the 50's/60's, then he left stage while the backing band and singers, who where brilliant, sang How Great Thou Art, then the music changed to the 68 comback theme tune from the 68 comback show, he came on stage and got the 3 other guitarists to come to the front of the stage and they sat on chairs right at the lip of the stage, all I can say is it was like watching the video of Elvis in the 68 Comeback, absolutley fantastic, he opened with Lawdy Miss Clawdy. Then when he had done about 6 or so songs they all went back to their places on stage and Lee went off stage while the backing singers did G I Blues. He then came on in the 2 piece white If I Can Dream Suit and sang If I can Dream. That was half time, after a tipple at the bar we sat down 15 mins later and on came 2001 Space Odessy and the drum roll, then on came Lee in the Concho Jumpsuit, he strutted the stage as Elvis did and picked up his guitar and reeled off See See Rider. The rest of the show was great, he did all the favourites and even had all the joking with the band and the audiance. His voice is amazing although I think Elvis's Early years songs suit him better, he sounded more true to Elvis in them songs, but the mannerisms, moves and show where great. A brilliant night and I would deffo go see him again

Has anyone heard of CLAYTON MARK he is on in Torquay up the road from me soon. Check this out on his homepage VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL USA bottom right "ELVIS NEVER HAD A VOICE LIKE CLAYTON MARK" scratch http://www.claytonmark.com/
Well i can honestly say Elvis never had a voice like me........ THANK GOD lol!

YES I HAVE COME ACROSS HIM NO ONE IN THE WORLD HAS A BETTER VOICE THAN ELVIS, SOME COME CLOSE WE HAVE AN ETA THAT PUTS
GB BEST ELVIS THIS WAS IN 1842 HE SHOULD PUT THE DATE, IT JUST SHOWS THAT THERE IS HUMBLE ETA'S AND THE BIG HEADED ETA'S YOU MUST MAKE YOUR MIND UP WHAT ONE YOU WANT TO BE. I HAD AN ETA SAY TO ME THAT HE SUNG TWO SONGS BETTER THAN ELVIS, I SEE HIM AT A COMP AND ASKED WHAT SONGS HE WAS GOING TO SING AND IT WAS NOT THE TWO SONGS HE SAID HE WAS BETTER THAN ELVIS, I SAID WHY, HE SAID HE SONG THEM LAST YEAR BOTH TIMES HE DID NOT MAKE THE FINALS SOME PEOPLE JUST THINK AND I WILL SAY AGAIN JUST THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN ELVIS.

Al I know Clayton Mark, He is ok but he thinks he is a top eta but for me he doesn't do for me. He comes across a bit arrogant for my liking. No

Clayton Mark was one of the judges in the Walk a Golden Mile comp in Jan and was one at the Ultimate (I think). I have never heard him but he does the ledgends in Blackpool. There is no such thing as The Worlds Best. You are only as good as the audience thinks you are! People have different opinions for what they look for in an ETA and not everyone comes to the same conclusion. I mean I love Shaun Klush but some people dont think he is the Worlds Best either. Different strokes for different folks I think Very Happy

OMG did he! I wonder if his claim is true scratch
Im not sure I saw Clayton Mark when he did a showcase, or did I. He musnt have been that memorable if he did. Lmao! Well Ledgens Blackpool must be a far cry from Vegas. Then again I wasnt overly thrilled with that ETA either, he was good like but I thought he would have been better. Lol!
