Gracing the stage as 2016's feature performers will be Viva favourites and new to Surfers Paradise, Dean Z! See Surfers Paradise take a step back in time as we pay tribute to the world's greatest music legends with ten days of FREE classic entertainment at Viva Surfers Paradise.
There'll be all your favourite Viva fun including stellar performances by the best tribute artists, rock 'n' roll dancing, classic cars, and of course the ever-popular Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition where we send the best Elvis artist to compete in Memphis, Tennessee!
Direct from Brazil for his first appearance in Australia, DIOGO!
When Diogo takes the stage at VIVA Surfers Paradise, you will know what is making this Elvis Tribute Artist world class!
From the time he was a small child listening to his father's Elvis records, he's been a fan. Now, as one of the most sought after Tribute Artists on multiple continents, he considers it a great honour and blessing to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time.
Diogo has held concerts in his hometown area of Porto Alegre, Brazil for years but recently he caught the eye of the world stage when he won Sao Paulo's first Elvis contest endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises in 2013 and represented Brazil in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute contest in Memphis, Tennessee coming in 4th. Since then he has gone on to win contests in Myrtle Beach, Tupelo and most recently the Georgia Elvis Festival! Diogo's popularity means he now spends less time in the court room where he is a successful defence attorney and more time singing the songs he grew up with. Having his tribute recognized by fans in so many countries is amazing and he embraces this responsibility with love and respect.
Dean Z (Thursday 14, Friday 15 & Saturday 16 July)
Dean has dedicated his entire life to honouring the legacy of Elvis Aaron Presley. From his early days in Lancaster, California, to stages across the globe, he has repeatedly shown why he is one of the best in the business today. Dean became an accomplished musician during his youth and took off for Las Vegas, at 17. Dean has since been crowned the 2013 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion and has also received the 2014 Heart of The King Award. We can't wait to see Dean here in paradise!
