Gracing the stage for the very first time is the ever so popular Dean Z and Diogo Light! 

Dean Z 
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!

Direct from Brazil for his first appearance in Australia, DIOGO LIGHT! 

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 honor and blessing to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time.irect from Brazil for his first appearance in Australia, DIOGO LIGHT!
 
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 South America 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 defense attorney and more time singing the songs he grew up with. Di (as he is nicknamed) says having his tribute recognized by fans in so many countries is amazing and he embraces this responsibility with love and respect.
