Matt King

"My job as an Elvis tribute is basically a labour of love. It’s the best job in the world, meeting new people and trying to spread the gospel of Elvis at the same time".

Matt King has been performing his Elvis show and tribute for over 23 years and is well-known as one of the leading Elvis impersonators in the UK.

The idea to perform an Elvis tribute began in Tenerife in 1991, when Matt won an Elvis soundalike contest and he immediately got the bug to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time.

Matt, from Epsom in Surrey, scooped the award of Europe's Tribute to Elvis overall champion in 2016 Matt has already qualified for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis during Elvis Week in August and will represent Penticton.
