In his adopted home of Spain Paul is a big star and appears at all the major four & five star hotels, and cabaret venues for leading UK and European tour groups including Thomson, Reisen and Tui. He appears regularly on Spanish TV but was no newcomer to television - Paul appeared on ITV’s “The Time and Place” in 1993 & also “Stars In Their Eyes” that same year, and then again in 1997 when he went on to appear in the only live Elvis tribute show, after beating over 10,000 other contenders to win his place in this prestigious final.

Paul’s Elvis Presley show is not tongue in cheek. Over the years Paul has finely honed his show, perfecting the voice, movements and mannerisms, with a repertoire of over 1200 songs! He entertains from the curtain to the encore with the greatest hits we all love and remember - delivered with style and watched in awe.
