What the papers say

 
Elvis Presley Tribute act Clayton Mark
 
DAILY MIRROR
“Clayton Mark who has the stance and mannerisms, the soaring vocal power and the sonorous, deep voice off to a tee. Close your eyes and it could almost be the real thing.”
 

DAILY MAIL
“Clayton Mark with his own voice is outstanding. His vocal range is unbelievable and his finale was powerful enough to pull the audience out of their seats for the encore which followed.”
 
VEGAS REVIEW
“Remember the name Clayton Mark. The audience cheered him loud and long and he well deserved it. Elvis never had a voice like Clayton Mark but this actor has all the charisma that Elvis ever had. He sounds as if he can sing anything.”
