REVIEW

Paul Phoenix and the Rhapsody Singers Elvis Show

Broadland Sands, Corton

ELVIS entered the building last Saturday when Paul Phoenix took to the Broadland Sands stage with his 'If I Can Dream' Elvis tribute show together with his new vocal quartet, The Rhapsody Singers, Sarah James, Tiera Calver, Sophie Wells and Lianne Smith.

It was immediately apparent that Paul Phoenix is an extremely convincing king of rock lookalike and sound alike with a voice that equals, if not exceeds that of the great man himself, along with mannerisms and anecdotes to match.

He delivers the whole package as a polished tribute performer, and the Rhapsody Singers appeared like they been together for eons such was their natural stage charisma.

The audience were mainly comprised of holiday guests, a wedding reception party, general members of the public and a strong Paul Phoenix following, blending in together to enjoy this much anticipated show.

With a powerful showbiz intro, the opening number A Little Less Conversation was the first of a strong selection of Elvis favourites leading up to Impossible Dream creating an early crescendo in the set.

He moved out into the audience with Its Now or Never, regally handing out red neck scarves, the show's signature costume attire, involving the enthralled audience further into the several more popular hits.

Leading out the set with American Trilogy, a perfect choice for an end of show big tribute, Paul reinforced his ability of range power and sustain, which also brought out the best in the Rhapsody Singers as a unified harmony quartet.

With a well deserved encore they paraded the show title number If I Can Dream, an immense favourite for Elvis fans bringing the star cabaret act to a fitting finale.

The first in this new production line-up, Paul Phoenix and The Rhapsody Singers will be performing the Elvis..What If' show at The Seagull Theatre in Pakefield on Saturday, June 30, when Elvis comes back for one night only, to tell his story in a multimedia delight.
