It's been 35 years since "King of Rock 'n' Roll" Elvis Presley left the building, but he still commands a loyal following and is still winning over new fans.

To commemorate the anniversary of his death, the International Elvis Presley Fan Club (Hong Kong) is holding a "Viva Elvis" night at the United Services Recreation Club on August 25.

Turn up dressed in one of Presley's many guises and you will have a chance to win the "Best Vintage Costume Award" among other prizes.

Canadian Elvis impersonator Stephen Kabakos, a winner of the "Images of the King Contest" held in Memphis, Tennessee, will take the audience back in time by evoking memories of the singer's career from the 1950s to the '70s.

Other performers - including Japanese Elvis tribute artist Hiroshi Ishikawa - will sing Elvis hits, backed with live music from The Elvis Band from the Philippines.

Guests will include local DJ "Uncle Ray" Cordeiro and vocal instructors Christine Samson and Krystal Diaz.

Viva Elvis starts at 6.30pm. Tickets - including a four-course dinner and lucky draw - cost HK$480. For details, visit or call 60321899.
