Elvis The Musical

This is a show experience of a very special kind, which turns back the clock to bring the cult of Elvis Presley to life again!

Grahame Patrick

as Elvis Presley

Grahame Patrick was born and raised in Dublin. He was literally born with his passion to music: His father, who has always been a great example for him, used to be a musician as well.

His admiration for Elvis’ music and the idea to work as a double for the king of Rock’n’Roll developed early: ‘I wanted to impart my admiration for music to other people in a realistic and sensitive way, but move them honestly as well.’

At the beginning of the 1990ies, when he was a teenager, Grahame Patrick and his parents moved to Toronto (Canada) where he had first gigs as an Elvis double in Bars and Clubs. One day, a producer spotted him as an Elvis doppelgänger at a party and offered him a contract by the end of the night. This contract resulted in different engagements all over the USA. For several years he performed on stage in the El Dorado of showbiz, Las Vegas.

One of the highlights of his career was to perform as opening act for the soul legend Dionne Warwick. Since March 2003, you can spot Grahame Patrick in the live show ‘Stars in Concert’ at the Estrel Festival Center in Berlin regularly. In August 2004 he got on stage for ‘ELVIS – The Musical’ at the E. F. Center for the first time.
The two-hour performance honoring the ‘King’ – from adolescence to adulthood - allows him to demonstrate his versatility, to impress the audience with his fascinating resemblance & powerful voice and to show his great talent as an artist. 

Las Vegas Showband

Band

This band knows how to groove!
The band, which consists of seven people, is able to represent Elvis’ Rock’n’Roll live and authentically. The trained musicians have mastered their instruments perfectly and are an excellent coordinated team.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s blues, rock or ballads – the Las Vegas Showband performs the different styles of music with superior ease and thus is able to revive the golden age of Rock’n’Roll playfully. To keep your feet still when hearing this rousing performance is nearly impossible!

The Heartbreakers

Dancers

The Heartbreakers are showgirls par excellence! The beautiful dancing girls enchant the audience not just because of their appearance with their slim silhouettes and long legs, but are also able to dance excellently.

The Heartbreakers bestow the real show feeling on the musical and manage to create the impression, that the evening would take place in one of the well-known casinos of Las Vegas.

Ed Enoch & The Stamps Quartett

Band

The legendary Stamps Quartet from Nashville/Tennessee is world-famous and accompanied Elvis Presley on his tours from February 1971 until his sudden death in August 1977. Elvis has been their friend for many years and used to invite them every night after his shows in order to perform for his friends, e. g. Tom Jones, Jack Lord, Charlton Heston, Art Linkletter and many more. Until today, the Stamps have been the oldest professional gospel quartet in the history of America.

Ed Enoch, the original lead singer of the Stamps, and his new formation are now on tour with ‘ELVIS – The Musical” in 2019. He had started his career as a professional musician as baritone singer for the Stamps Quartet in 1969; afterwards he became the lead singer and road manager for the group.

‘Working for Elvis Presley was a wonderful experience. He was in a class of his own and his love for the Lord and his fellow men was unique.’ It was a very meaningful experience for Ed to perform on stage and to hear how his friend Elvis Presley introduced him to the audience: ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my friend and the strongest and best singer of the world: Ed Enoch!’

Bernhard Kurz

Producer

Entertainment is his passion. For more than 20 years producer Bernhard Kurz has been working in the show business. In the course of his career, the exceptional lookalike-shows have paved the way for his outstanding reputation as an expert in the matter of tribute shows.

Since 1997 Bernhard Kurz has been producing the Las Vegas Live Show “Stars in Concert” at the Estrel Festival Centre in Berlin. More than 6,000 performances with more than 4 million visitors prove without doubt, that the show is one of the most successful ones in Germany. It’s a tribute to the superstars of the last 60 years.

Nonetheless, Bernhard Kurz has also produced tribute shows about The Beatles (“all you need is love!”), ABBA (“Thank you for the music”), Elvis Presley (“Elvis – Die Show”), The Blues Brothers (“I’m a Soulman”) as well as a show about the successful record label Motown Records (“Memories of Motown”) with worldwide success.
His production ‘It’s all musical’ – a glamorous gala show honouring the most popular musical songs – brought him a step closer to the metier that had once drummed up his enthusiasm for the work behind the stage and for the entertainment business. Along with his brother, the musical producer Friedrich Kurz – who was also Andrew Lloyd Webber’s manager and personal assistant - he brought the successful musicals like ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Cats’ and ‘Starlight Express’ to Germany.

Retrospectively, ‘Stars in Concert’ is Bernhard Kurz’ ‘most important show’ for which he got several awards as ‘Best Producer’ in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
