2006: MAT FRASER IS ELVIS AT THE BEAUTIFUL OCTOPUS CLUB

As the Beautiful Octopus Club continued to grow and develop we began to work with individual artists outside of Heart n Soul to offer them the opportunity to do something different at our club.

Mat Fraser was really interested in trying out performing as Elvis Presley and the Heart n Soul band backed him on July 13. By this stage, we were making full use of The Albany protools recording set up which meant that we could get a high-quality audio recording of what ever happened on the main stage.

We were also beginning to document and film every club and the result was this great version of Mat Fraser singing “In The Ghetto” as Elvis. Mat Fraser is also one of our big 30 contributors. 

Look out for more trips down memory lane on our News pages!
