FANS of "The King" are in for a treat at The Hawth in Crawley on Saturday, August 2, when The Elvis Collection return with their latest show.

Featuring Billy J McGregor, The Elvis Collection will be presenting their touring production From Memphis To Vegas.

Under the musical direction of Alan Wearmouth, Billy J and his ten-piece band will be performing more than two hours of Elvis's best-known recordings.

With five years of touring the UK circuit behind him, life-long Elvis fan Billy J prides himself on steering clear of the cliche trappings of many of his fellow performers and concentrating on the music instead.

He said: "We take the legend of The King back to what really counts - the music.

"Every one of our shows is a party with a definite feel-good factor that plays some of the greatest music ever made."

Tickets for the 8pm show are available on 01293 553636.
