IMAGES OF THE KING™
DOC FRANKLIN’s ORIGINAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ETA CONTEST & SHOWCASES
August 11-15, 2023
Images of the King will be returning to Memphis with events from August 11-15 during EPE’s Elvis Week 2023. We are taking the event back to its roots when in 1987 Doc Franklin held the first “Images of Elvis” event at a Memphis Honky Tonk called the Bad Bob’s Vapor’s Supper Club.
Once again this year we will be producing all of our events at a place as close as we could find to the historic Memphis Honky Tonk Scene… The world famous HERNANDOS HIDEAWAY!!! This historic Memphis music venue has a history as deep as rock music itself having hosted performances by Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis!!!
Our events will include three rounds of the Images of the King World Championship ETA Contest, our brand new “Big – Little King” Contest and some of Memphis’ most memorable events including the annual Elvis Week ETA Roast featuring this year’s “Roastee” Dan Barrella!
