What separates the cream of the crop from all those who attempt to pay homage to the King? Come see Bill Cherry, who marvelously performs as Elvis for Legends and you will find out first hand.
Having grown up listening to the King, Elvis was Bill’s first inspiration. As a child, Bill would avidly watch all of Elvis’s movies and listen to his records. And when he wasn’t listening to Elvis, or the other greats of the time—like the Beatles or Johnny Cash—Bill was honing his own vocal skills. Singing along with his father, Bill’s home grown musical talent has now taken him far and wide.
Paying homage to the king since 1989, Bill is absolutely one of the best Elvis tribute artists in the business. For Bill it’s not enough to sing, act and dance like the King, he even drives the same car as him—a Stutz Blackhawk (one of which can be seen at Graceland). His career has led him to perform with many of the same bands who backed Elvis, like the Jordaniers, the Sweet Inspirations, DJ Fontana, and members of J. D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet.
He has received many awards and accolades for his spot-on renditions. Prior to winning in Memphis, Bill took first place at the 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Preliminaries in Tupelo, Mississippi. This back-to-back win proved historic as it was the first time any Elvis Tribute Artist won the title of Ultimate at both the birthplace and the hometown of Elvis Presley in the same year. He’s been honored by Time Magazine, as one of the top Elvis Tribute artist, and has also won The Heart of the King award in Las Vegas at the Hilton where Elvis performed for several years. While Bill never met the King, he’s doing fabulous work of maintaining his legacy, and impressing audiences at every one of his performances.

Following the latest announcements of a 10pm closing for bars and venues we announce clarification of our policy.
Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2020 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).
Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.
We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.
If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.
We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.
As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success
Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.
The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
