Love In Las Vegas

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016


Just arrived here at Essential Elvis UK is a fantastic new book entitled Love In Las Vegas and we are very impressed.

The 150-page book (from Erik Lorenzen who bought us ‘The Elvis Files’ series) details the relationship between Elvis and actress Ann-Margret. They met for the first time in 1963 at Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood. Ann-Margret was at the press conference site because she would be the leading lady, Rusty Martin, in the new film ‘Viva Las Vegas’. The film is considered one of Elvis’ better movies and memorable by the close relationship between Elvis and his co-star, which flourished during filming.

The new book is released in soft cover in a limited edition of just 900 pieces, and would make a great Christmas gift. Please email or call to purchase, but be quick! PayPal is acceptable.

£39.99 + £7.00 UK postage

Mindi Miller Event ** From Colin Paul **

** From The Desk Of Colin Paul **

What an amazing weekend! After two great nights at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool for the Second To None – Yesterday Once More ’60s event, Sarahlea and I set off to Worthing for day two of a great Essential Elvis UK event.

After arriving early Andrew Hearn invited us to his house for coffee and toast and a catch-up with his family and my old pal, Andy Jones. We soon headed off to the Warren Ballroom where we were greeted by Elvis fans from over the UK and Europe. Once inside we were met by Shayne Driscoll and his wife Karen, and we were soon set up and raring to go. It was so good to see so many friends from Elvis Week at Hemsby and Memphis, including Jenny, Glenn, Paul, Alissa, Maureen, Sandra, Lynn and Margaret Dewick from The Billy Fury Fan Club. Great also to see my old mate Dave Richards and his family, and so many more. I appreciate you all coming out to see my show.

Before the show we met the very wonderful Mindi Miller, whose love for Elvis and his fans really shines through. She is an absolute delight and we really enjoyed her company. I know I missed some great fun the night before where Mindi chatted about her time with Elvis and her life. I look forward to the DVD when it’s released.

It was soon time to hit the stage with my gospel show. I really enjoy singing Elvis’ gospel songs, and I hope you all enjoyed it too. After a short break it was time to hit the stage again with Shayne to pay our tribute to Scotty Moore. It was so nice to perform the early songs of Elvis and Scotty. I’ve got say that Shayne is an excellent guitarist and he has a great voice, too. Thanks mate, really glad that you suggest this.

After the event, and as the evening approached, Andrew took us to his favourite Indian restaurant where we enjoyed the company of the EE:UK team, including Jess, Steve and Dawn – Mindi also joined us. The food was wonderful and the company rounded off the day perfectly.

On a personal note, a special thanks to Andrew Hearn for his great hospitality. All I can say is, When is the next one!? I love my job, and I am so lucky to work with like-minded people who go all out to make everybody happy.

Essential Elvis UK really is a great organisation and if your not a subscriber to The Elvis Mag, why not? It really is that good, I promise.
