Ricky Ford has been an Elvis Tribute Artist for around 18 months. All come about when he changed the graphics and name of his mobile coffee van to The King about 2 years ago. A 2nd hand jumpsuit, sideburns and a wig saw him serving coffee to customers as ” the king”.
His love of Elvis and his music and singing karaoke, quickly turned interest away from serving coffee to paying tribute to his idol, Elvis Presley. He was fortunate enough to be accepted to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist competition at the Parkes Elvis Festival and Viva in 2019.
