One Night of Elvis – Lee ‘Memphis’ King
Lee Memphis King is widely considered to be Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist. Lee has been touring his One Night of Elvis production since 2007 and has headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and Europe. We can’t wait for this fantastic show to return to Cornwall Playhouse!
To date, he is the only tribute artist to headline a show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo where he performed to 3,000 fans. A lifelong Elvis fan, Lee began imitating Elvis’s voice at the age of 5. His motivation is to be as authentic as possible in every detail and to perform each song with the same passion, energy and emotion that Elvis put into his performances. A lifelong perfectionist Lee is forever working to put on a show which replicates Elvis in Concert in every detail. Not only vocally but many thousands of pounds have been invested in faithfully recreating the costumes with the exact same attention to detail as Elvis himself did. The original designer of Elvis’s jumpsuits also make’s Lee’s costumes to the same exact standards as the original costumes worn by Elvis. The orchestra pay particular attention to recreating the same sounds and playing style that Elvis’s band used to play.
They consist of a brass section, drums, lead and rhythm guitar, two keyboards and fantastic backing vocalists. Very successful in their own right working with some of the world’s biggest stars they love the challenge of faithfully recreating an Elvis show as it was back then when Elvis was at his peak. This all means fans will leave the show having witnessed the most authentic Elvis Presley show in the world today.
