Timeconcerts Entertainment is one of the leaders in putting together grand show of grand effect. They have created "Enter the Legends" where true professional entertainers perform live before large audience proving fantastic resemblance to the great legends, such as (Elvis Presley, Madonna, Sher, Prince, Roy Orbison, The Blues Brothers, etc, insulted to bone marrow if adressed to as 'impersonators'. These are world's unique, fenomenal entertainers of grand caliber who perform from spot acts to even full concerts.

Almost all of "Enter the Legends" entertainers, perform at "LEGENDS IN CONCERT" at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas, who is rated number 1 show on the Las Vegas Strip.

TIMCEOCNERTS will take ENTER THE LEGENDS this year into Eastern EUROPE, braking ice to what could be an ocean of concerts and a multi million Euro Dollar business.

PLOT DESCRIPTION
Elvis Presley may be gone, but his legacy lives on, and while many fans are content to recall one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th Century by listening to his records or watching his movies, there's another breed of fan who seeks to bring Elvis back to life in a sense, devoting a remarkable amount of time, money, and energy in an effort to re-create the look and sound of the King of Rock & Roll on-stage. Almost Elvis is a documentary that looks at the cultural phenomenon of the Elvis impersonator, featuring interviews with a number of performers who play the nightclub circuit as they make like Elvis the Pelvis. Performers include Doug Church (called "the Voice of Elvis" by fans for his uncanny recreation of Presley's vocal style) ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide - NEW YORK TIMES


DOUG CHURCH, Essex, UK, June 2005
Doug Church gave us 3 excellent shows here in the UK 3rd 4th 5th June at Walton On The Naze Essex UK. Once again Doug thrilled the UK audience with his tribute to Elvis and he received many standing ovations. Doug had everyone up dancing and we did not want the weekend to end. All the fans said how close Doug's voice is to Elvis and he certainly recreated for us what it might have been like to See Elvis Live! We just cannot get enough of Doug Church here in the UK so much so we are already planning his return visit. We had 3 sell-out shows as always with Doug Church and his Sunday performance was made special because Doug choose to do an all request night. Doug came off the stage and was up close with the audience. Doug went beyond the call of duty during this weekend . Not only had he done 3 shows in a row (Sunday night was his last performance) but sang for us taking requests for over 3 hours. We loved every minute of it. There were many different moods from the fans , from laughter, joy and excitement and even tears. When Doug sang his Tribute song I'll Be With You Always there was not a dry eye in the house. The fans went crazy as Doug belted out American Trilogy and fans were waving their Elvis flags and just taken back in ore of Doug's performances. Thank You Doug Church The Voice Of Elvis for visiting us here in the UK. You went beyond the call of duty and gave us so much Thank You! If anyone who has not seen Doug yet we strongly recommend you go and see his live show he is outstanding and has so much talent he is Elvis continued. Sincerely, Mark - Ladyluck Magazine - UK


SPOTLIGHT REVIEWS

Kingtinued

May 31, 2002, Reviewer: bradleyatsea from Oklahoma City, OK United States

"You will not find an impersonator ANYWHERE, who truly captures the essence of Elvis like Doug Church. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Elvis is truly blushing right now! This is no comical, exagerated, cartoon of the King, this is a heartfelt performer...a natural."

Kingtinued Disc 1, Disc 2, King Country

April 29, 2002 Reviewer: Herbert D. Wagner from Wichita, KS United States

"I have always loved Elvis but since he died all there was out were the repackaged same songs I already owned. The only difference was they were maybe recoded at a different location or time. I received my order and played the three CD's. It was so wonderfully refreshing to hear Doug Church singing new songs and it was like ELVIS WAS BACK. I look forward to more Doug Church albums in the future. He has the voice I love to hear doing things Elvis would be doing if he was still here with us. More power to you and to him."

Doug Church is Kingtinued!

February 25, 2002 Reviewer: rich1of1 from Federal Way, WA United States

"This collection of material would surly have been on Elvis's, "things to do today list", if only for his own personal library and the joy of making wonderful music!

"I am very pleased to have experienced these songs as recorded by Doug Church and I certainly hope he continues to provide us with more of the songs of today and the recent past that Elvis did not survive to be a part of."

Elvis would be proud!

February 25, 2002 Reviewer: Terri Mitchell from Simi Valley, CA United States

"What a nice collection. Elvis would be proud. The country mix is what sold me on these CD's. I'll be waiting for volume 2.

Kingtinued: LONG LIVE "THE VOICE OF ELVIS!"

February 24, 2002 Reviewer: Claudine Moon from Cookeville, TN United States

"For the many millions of ELVIS fans, this has been a long awaited release. The wonder of the voice of DOUG CHURCH makes my heart fill with joy. Hearing this beautiful music is soothing to the SOUL. THE 3 CD SET GIVES ME MANY PLEASANT MEMORIES TO REMEMBER WITH LOVE. I LOOK FOWARD TO MORE GREAT MUSIC FROM THIS WONDERFUL ARTIST. "THE KING " IS SMILING DOWN ON DOUG CHURCH AND SAYING THANKS FOR "taking care of business" for me! please accept my word that this is a terrific cd set."

"The TRUE SPIRIT of Elvis Presley: Doug Church"

February 22, 2002, Reviewer: Steven Yarborough from Memphis, TN United States

Review: "Doug Church has got to be the #1 Elvis Tribute Artist of ALL TIME. People used to think that Roddy McDowell was "The Voice of Elvis" but move aside Roddy. Let the REAL VOICE OF ELVIS in the door!!! There has never been nor will there ever be another person on this planet to take Doug's place (besides The King himself) in bringing back the true spirit of the LEGEND we came to know as Elvis Presley. I was born in '72 and missed my chance to see The King in person. When I saw the commercial for KINGTINUED and heard the voice from another room, I thought it was a commercial for a "Greatest Hits" package from Elvis but as I listened they were NEW SONGS that only came out AFTER Elvis left us. I ran to the living room and saw what was left of an amazing and unbelievable commercial on Doug's CD's. I ordered the CD's and listened to all 3 when I got them without stopping. They are truly breath taking and brought tears to my eyes. I thought to myself "This is my chance to experience the Gift of Elvis in MY time". Doug is a wonderful singer and outstanding Elvis Tribute Artist. If God is willing, I will try and book Doug for my birthday this year in November. That will be the best present ever. Keep up the work and I'll be a buyer of EVERYTHING Doug puts out. You're the man!!!"

The Sweet Inspirations, Female Backing Vocals

The soulful harmonies of the Sweet Inspirations have enriched recordings by Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and other legends. They have collaborated with writers and producers such as Carole King, Burt Bacharach and Hal David. They've had success with R&B, gospel and pop recordings of their own, most notably their first hit single Sweet Inspiration, which gave the group their name in the late sixties and earned them a Grammy nomination. It was that song that caught the attention of Elvis Presley, who signed them to provide backing vocals and be an opening act for his record-breaking 1969 Las Vegas engagement, his official return to the live concert stage after his triumphant '68 TV special and the end of his Hollywood movie contract obligations. No audition was required. The Sweet Inspirations met him when they arrived for the first rehearsals for the '69 engagement. The "Sweets" worked with Elvis in Vegas, on his national concert tours and on recordings from 1969 to 1977.

Myrna Smith, Sylvia Shemwell, Estelle Brown and Cissy Houston (mother of superstar Whitney) were the members when the group first worked with Elvis. Houston left to go solo after the first gig with Elvis. Among those to fill the vacant spot was Anne Williams, who joined them in 1970 for a short time. Brown, Shemwell and Smith soon settled on being a trio. The three stayed together and worked with Elvis until the end of his life. They eventually went their separate ways professionally. In the early 1990's they started performing together again. Due to illness, Sylvia Shemwell has not been touring with us for the last couple of years. Today, new members Portia Griffin and Kelly Jones join original members Myrna and Estelle on our tours of Elvis In Concert.

Myrna Smith recalls that first meeting with Elvis, "He walked in and had on a chocolate colored suit. He had a tan, and he looked absolutely gorgeous. He walked over to us and introduced himself - like we didn't know who he was: 'Hi, I'm Elvis Presley.' (Cissy literally fell off her stool.) From then on, whenever he'd see us, it was always a kiss." Smith remembers his talent, "He had so much energy. His voice was a lot more remarkable than it ever came off on record...He was just a much better singer than could ever be captured...Some great singers' voices are just too big. Elvis' was like that."

DOUG CHURCH PERFORMING ELVIS
- BIOGRAPHY -

Doug Church began his Elvis career in the U.S. Air Force in 1983 while competing against hundreds of other contestants and winning annual talent contests. Starting at the base level and proceeding through to the regional levels, he defeated the best entertainers from many bases in the European and U.S. Air Force commands. In four years, he collected 11 first place trophies for his well-developed likeness to Elvis, as well as other categories ranging from best male vocalist to best comedic performance.

After leaving the Air Force in 1987, Doug continued his act around the Midwest. In 1990, he competed in the fourth annual Worldwide Elvis Impersonator Contest in Memphis, Tennessee against Elvis entertainers from all over the world. He took home the second place prize for only his first time in this competition. The following year, Doug returned to Memphis to capture the first place crown as "The World�s Best Elvis Impersonator." In 1993, after a successful audition with Legends In Concert (a musical entertainer venue based in Las Vegas, Nevada) he started touring the country and the world. Doug has performed in such exot
