I have played many different styles of music at many different venues throughout the South West.  After 14 years of musical retirement, I came back with a vengeance in 2000, and help form Soul Solution. I then moved on, forming & playing in The Graduates, in for 9 years.  I then formed and played in The Beat Cats playing Rock n Roll & Rockabilly at clubs and festivals all over the South of England.  Now that The Beat Cats are no more, I’m pleased to say that I have joined an already established 1st class act, Buicks 56 & The If I Can Dream Band.  

Where else would Elsa be but singing in perfect harmony with

The Blue-Tones.

Elvis is her passion as well as singing and performing on stage.

Having previously backed another band , One Night',  Elsa now says "supporting Elvis 56 & The "If I Can Dream"Band is a dream come true.

 

Under the name of Elvis 56, Andrew has a very successful and very hectic solo career whilst also fronting his Rock'&'Roll band Buicks  56. An Elvis Fan all his life, Andrew thought he would squeeze in one more venture. The "If I Can Dream" Band was born. A Theatre show that was sat in the back of Andrews mind for the past few years is now becoming a reality along with like minded , talented musicians, Elvis 56 & The "If I Can Dream"Band can only go from strength to strength.

With Many years experience tucked under his belt, Kevin is a huge asset to the band. Kevin is also a Johnny Cash Tribute Artist, traveling all over England as 'The Man In Black'. Andrew and Kevin have been friends for a good few years. Kevin was the guitarist in Andrews Rock & Roll band, Memphis 56. & still his guitarist in Buicks 56. Also a life long Elvis fan, Kevin has been lucky enough to record at the famous Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The very studio where Elvis made his first record.

Kevins dedication to "getting it right" makes him perfect for

 The "If I Can Dream" Band.

 

Jools to all who know and love him is our man on the keys. He ahs more musical knowledge and talent than we've had hot dinners.

A true gentleman and scholar with a wicked dry sense of humour. His love of playing is evident in every performance.

 

Marc has over 30 years playing and 20 years teaching experience.

Travelling around the world with top acts, and extensive recording experience, Marc is the most authentic Elvis Drummer on the scene today and we have him in The If I Can Dream Band. Lucky us. Marc will also be joining Buicks 56

 Playing rhythm guitar and Backing Vocals, Charlie is a great addition to The Blue-Tones.

 'Memphis 56 ,

Charlie still helps out now and again with Buicks 56 and Charlie is worth his weight in gold.

Every Elvis should have a Charlie!
