17th December 2015
Well another year has passed us by.
Its been a bit of a rollercoaster for me both on stage and off.
The solo work is steady as ever with the introduction of my all new Elvis v Shaky Tribute Show.
This has been popular towards the end of 2015 and bookings already in the diary for 2016.
This has been my best year ever as a performer. This is due to the fact that I have been approached to dep as Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley in the hit show Rock n Roll Paradise. I have played some fantastic venues inc The Grimsby Auditorium and North Pier Theatre, Blackpool.
To think my 1st ever gig was in the Beach Tavern all those years ago in little Pevensey Bay, I would say I have moved on.
My band The Buddy Presley Band had a great year also. Our tour ended with 2 great gigs in Grantham and Birmingham.
Again this goes from strength to strength with a tour in place for some great Arts Centre's and Theatre's in 2016.
We have so enjoyed seeing you all at our gigs, long may it continue. All info on our website on my links page.
On the personal front I had a few health issue's early part of the year but carried on gigging all the way through when maybe a few times I should have rested. Im ok now though and getting fitter for next year, all my dates for 2016 will be posted on my gig guide very soon.
I have some great shows lined up inc a weekender in Devon in Feb with long time buddy and 2015 Ultimate ETA Champ Mr Ricky Aron. I was there to see him win at Winter Gardens, Blackpool and I could not have been happier, such a nice genuine guy.
My Elvis v Shaky Show takes me to Barnsley on Jan 23rd.
I am attending a TM ELVIS Weekender in Blackpool in Feb where im performing my tribute on the Saturday night 27th Feb.
Im also still rockin as Elvis in Elvis v Jerry Lee Lewis The Showdown with my buddy Peter Gill as Jerry Lee backed by my boys The Buddy Presley Band. We have some fantastic duels together and the highlight this year was Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead, West Sussex which had an incredible atmosphere. Very well recieved show.
Finally I wish to thank my family for there incredible support through this tough year, I literally could not have got through it without you.
Come on out and see me in 2016, tell me I told you so.
