Alvin's Blue Suede News...
The front page of any website is always supposed to be ‘the grabber’, so hopefully, you’ll be ‘grabbed’ by some of the events and shows, that I have lined up for this year, and into next. Keep reading, as the actual ‘quick fire’ diary dates are listed to the right ….. But below, there is more information to be had.
My first event being my Music Weekend in June, has sold out prior to me updating my website here, but do keep reading.
Due to the pandemic, unfortunately, there is only one date available this year, for one of my very popular Riverboat Cruise events, which departs from Henley-on-Thames. This is where I invite guests to join me for a complementary glass of bubbly as they board, this year’s River Boat, The Hampton Court. Following departure, a two-course buffet lunch is served, and then, as we continue our cruise along The Thames, I perform my ultimate tribute to Elvis. It always proves to be a great afternoon of music and fun, and it will be taking place on Sunday afternoon, 18th July.
21st July allows again this year, for me to hold my Charity Golf Day. As always, teams gather for 18 holes of golf, where they enjoy a day out on the course, followed by prize giving, a three-course meal and top-class entertainment to complete the day. With all proceeds going to my charity CHARM, which supports the Cancer Care Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, it is now fully booked for 2021. However, if you are a golfer, and you would like to join me next year, please do let me know, via the contact page and I would be delighted to welcome you along.
August 16th is a pivotal date in the Elvis Presley calendar, as of course, it was that date in 1977, that the great man passed away. So, as I do every year, I host an event where we pay tribute to Elvis and his musical legacy, by staging an Elvis Commemorative Night. This year, it will be taking place on Saturday 14th August at Weston Turville Golf Club in Aylesbury Bucks. Along with myself, I am delighted to welcome to support me at this event, The Ultimate Everly’s which as their name suggests, is a great tribute to Don & Phil Everly. Like Elvis, they enjoyed such considerable success, and their paths, crossed on many occasions, so I think it only fitting, that in ‘Tribute Form’ that their paths should cross again in August.
For those that didn’t manage to obtain tickets for my Music Weekend in June, here’s a chance for you to join me for my Autumn Music Weekend, taking place at the Mercure London Watford Hotel on 26th, 27th and 28th November. Again, another great residential weekend where guests, due to having three-tier ticketing system, can tailor their weekend to suit. As is customary at this event, we have yet another great line-up of top-class entertainment, featuring, A Night with the Rat Pack & The Legends of Swing, the amazing female trio, The Soultowners, also featuring tributes to Ali Campbell & UB40, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Madonna, George Michael and, of course, yours truly as Elvis Presley.
31st December, is of course, New Year’s Eve and again, I will be hosting a New Year’s Eve Party and seeing in 2022 at Weston Turville Golf Club Aylesbury. Further information to follow.
And, something to look forward to in 22 …..
Alvin’s Rock 'n' Roll Juke Box Party Weekend on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th April at the Mercure London Hotel Watford, featuring Alan Becks Legends of Rock n Roll Show, along with tributes to, The Everly Brothers, Connie Francis, Roy Orbison, Brenda Lee, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, and featuring, the fabulous Wilsons and my star attraction, 70’s chart toppers MUD. With lots more besides, this is another amazing residential weekend not to be missed.
As always, I will keep you posted as new dates and fab events, come into play, but for the time being, I look forward to seeing you all, very soon.

In the words of the man…
...‘‘Welcome to my world"
Many thanks for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy looking around.
This site, albeit about me, is also about Elvis, because without him I wouldn’t be doing what I am doing now, which is singing some great songs and having a fun time, meeting some very nice people along the way... yep! that pretty much sums it up…
Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you again very soon.
