Some years ago the book "Elvis In Nederland" (Elvis In The Netherlands) by Rob van Scheers was released. This edition features interviews with well known Dutch artists like Junkie XL, Ellen ten Damme, Jan Cremer, Monique van de Ven, André Hazes, Andy Tielman, Connie Palmen, and Hans van Manen, talking about their love for Elvis.
This book will soon be re-released, this time in colour with a CD of Dutch artists like Bob Fosko, Bennie Jolink, Vincent Bijlo, Bluegrass Boogiemen, Erwin Nijhoff, Roosbeef, JW Roy, Denise Jannah, Thom Hoffman and the Bintangs, singing well known Elvis songs in the Dutch language.
Rumour has it that a concert is in the works of those artists singing their songs live as a tribute to Elvis.

I don't know any good Dutch singer who ever did an Elvis tribute. Good luck with this project, but spare me

Well I have seen Maarten Jansen in Memphis with the Memphis Boys in January 2005 and he was great! It all depends on the songs he has to sing!

Erwin Nyhoff has my vote! He's in the book as well. Does a fantastic version of Edge Of Reality!
