2016 Elvis Week Memphis
& Images of the King Contest
August 9-16, 2016
Elvis Tribute Artist Contest and Showcase since 1987.
Join us in 2016 as Doc Franklin’s Original Images of the King World Championship Elvis Tribute Artist Contest crowns it’s 30th champion!
Over the last two years the Elvis Entertainment presented as part of Images of the King at the New Daisy Theater in Memphis has grown tremendously. Each year we present the very best there is in Elvis Entertainment and 2016 will be no exception.
With six concerts and four rounds of competition, plus the annual St. Jude’s Fundraiser you’ll find entertainment from morning until night from when we open the doors Tuesday morning until we all head off to the Candle Light Vigil on Monday evening. We’ll have five Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artists performing including Shawn Klush, Cody Ray Slaughter, Ben Portsmouth, Dean Z and David Lee and eight Images of the King World Champions including the afore mentioned David Lee and Ben Portsmouth, plus Kevin Mills, Irv Cass, Mario Kombou, Franz Goovaerts, Dwight Icenhower, Michael Chambliss and Brycen Katolinsky.
Our two featured shows of 2016 will be the return of Elvis ’56 starring Cody Ray Slaughter with Stephi Z and the Hillbilly Cats and the new “Dean Z Show,” starring no other then Dean Z doing what he does best… entertain!
And while you’re putting 2016 on your schedule, don’t forget to save the dates of Elvis Week 2017 (August 11-20, 2017) which commemorates the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ passing and the 30th anniversary of the Images of the King World Championship.
“Back in 1986, when we first started working on the show, we had no idea that people would still be interested 27 years later. Carry on!”
