In March 2016 after a lot of internal problems within the band, I decided to bring down the curtain on the then current Persuaders. My solo gigs were on the increase and that was the path I thought I should follow, although I had enjoyed being part of a band for over 20 years. A reunion concert with my original Persuaders, which was very successful, then gave me the idea I could do selected gigs with them. Unfortunately, Ped the keyboard player who lives in Carlisle could only play the Elvis and Fury weekends due to his dad’s ill health and eventually had to finish altogether. This meant I had to call on my old friend Paul Wilkinson of Rock Back the Clock, to stand in when he was available. This in turn meant I didn’t have a consistent line up and I had to call on stand-ins on numerous occasions, not an ideal situation. It began to be rather stressful.

On my return from the States, Brian the drummer announced he was leaving, meaning that was another position to fill. I decided enough was enough so I have decided to call it a day and concentrate on my solo career for now. im not saying i wont have a band again but i feel i really need to step back and put myself first for a while. 
The Billy Fury weekend in Blackpool in March will be the last COLIN PAUL & THE PERSUADERS band gig. The rest of the dates for the year are solo. I would like to thank all the musicians I have been associated with in The Persuaders over the last 22 years, it`s been a blast and I wish them success with any new ventures they may do. A very big thanks also to my friends and fans who have supported me and continue to do so, look forward to seeing you through the year. You make it all worthwhile. Please look out for new announcements re new CDs, Shows and other exciting ventures I have planned for the near future Regards and respect, Colin Paul

PS... hope you can join us for our final few gigs including this Saturday 4th February at Halifax Rock 'n' Roll club, Siddall lane, 
Friday 17th BTH School , Altrincham , 
Saturday 25th The Bop Shop , Guilt edge Club, Kidderminster
Friday 10th March our final gig at The Metropole Hotel Blackpool for our Billy Fury wkd. please try and join us for a wkd to remember x

A NOTE FROM COLIN PAUL - As with everything I feel its a shame there is a lot of Politics in the Elvis World, and sometimes its very hard to sit on the fence with being pulled one way or another and try to please everyone especially when my passion for Elvis is as strong now as it was when I first heard his voice when I was 8 years old. After enjoying Elvis week events in Memphis Recently i feel we are very lucky here in the UK to have 2 well supported Elvis weeks for fans to look forward to in September, Whether people can make it to Memphis or not. Vauxhall Elvis Festival and ofcourse our very own Elvis week at Hemsby.  it's a chance for Elvis fans to celebrate the Kings life & great music & show what an influence he had on his fans in the UK. Throughout the year there are many Elvis weekenders, All-dayers, Nights & Fan Club events & not forgetting The Essential Elvis Magazine by Andrew Hearn and others all keeping Elvis' name alive. plus some crackin DJS too. ie... Neil Williams, Dave Richards, Phil Shakespeare to name just a few. There are some fantasic Books around also that are written and researched by good friends of mine and yours. Trevor Simpson, Erik Lorentzen and Pal Granlund. So now really is a great time to be an Elvis fan, not forgetting ofcourse Volume two of Elvis and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be Released very soon, so It's not about which is the biggest or best, it's about celebrating the greatest entertainer that ever lived. ELVIS PRESLEY - JUST ENJOY xxxx

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that Colin Paul and The Persuaders for now are no more. due to differences between band personnel I think it`s time to wrap things up before things became too extreme, and looking for replacements who could have worked together would have been too time consuming. I respect that we had bookings arranged but unfortunately things have changed and band bookings are now out of my control. I say to all promoters that you can either cancel our gigs or use me as a solo artiste. I respect this can't be the case for some venues but rest assured if I'm booked I will be there unless I'm told otherwise. My full apologies and huge thanks go out to everyone who has booked us over the years and to all the friends we have made during our time on the road. We have the greatest memories and mutual respect to all bands and dj's on the circuit who work very hard to bring you the very best in Rock 'n' Roll music, and I'm sure they will continue to do so for many years to come. I wish Peter Thomas, Ped Taylor, Chris Evans and Pete Bardsley all the very best for the future. I plan on bringing you the very best in all I do, either Rock 'n' Roll / Sixties / Elvis or Billy Fury Shows. I promise to give 200% . For now i will concentrate on my solo career here in the UK, USA, Spain and Germany. as for Colin Paul & The Persuaders, Please remember out of the ashes a Phoenix rises, so watch this space. Again, Thanks to you all for your support and friendship and long may that continue for many years to come.

FRIDAY 1ST JUNE
Hi everyone, what a busy couple off months its been with many great gigs at weekenders and rock 'n' roll events, a great weekender was had by all at pontins in southport for yesterday once more, we kicked off the wkds events and enjoyed sharing the stage with Bernie woods and the forest fires and ofcourse the ever popular Jive street. Did you go to spain for The Elvis week there recently, if not you missed a fantasic week. a full reoprt will be on our reviews page soon and bookings are now being taken for next year, see yesterday once more page for details soon. we also had a great night in trowell at the festival inn for sandy and phil, the place was packed for the mayday bank holiday weekend. it truly was like the old days and we thank everyone for their kind words. the next weekender was down in devon for paul and marie, wow what an amazing night that was, it was also 30 years to the day since colin stepped onto a stage for the first time, an interview was set up. a kind of an audience with colin paul, some very interesting questions were asked and answers given, it was filmed and im sure it will be seen very soon.

Congratulations to Colin for getting to number one in the international country music charts in march and april, Colin stayed there for 8 weeks with 'Tangled up in Texas' taken from the Album 'That's Cool' The Album peaked at number 9 and he shared the charts with Johnny cash, Elvis, Tim Magraw, willie nelson and Dolly Parton amongst others. The new single out now is 'Still Nineteen' a video to the song is available on 'you tube' and 'facebook' and currently showing on various country channels around the globe, you can purchase the song for just 69 pence on amazon and itunes.

Just last weekend we played in Bristol at the Fry club, a new one for us and we were received very well, despite up two flights of stairs and a boiling hot day, the reception made it all worth while, from there we travelled to the durrant house hotel in bideford, Devon for Roger Ford and Dancing Daves annual rock n roll weekend, we played on saturday and again the audience was up for a great night, if you were there then thanks for a wonderful evening, as Colin has said many times he is blessed with an awsome band and the best audiences anyone could wish for, we stayed two nights at this four star hotel and we thank them for their hospitality, sunday evening we were at the legendary Bawa club in Bristol, it truly is a fantastic club and thanks to Rockin John the dj for creating a great atmosphere before we jumped on stage. as always a great crowd and we have been rebooked for our Tale of two kings show in november 2013 along with The Passionettes. 2013 looks like another busy year, so if your a promoter and you are thinking of booking Colin Paul and The Persuaders then call 07703717201 as dates are now limited. dont miss out. more news soon.

THURSDAY 30TH DECEMBER


It is with great sadness that we have to report  Myrna Smith passed away on Christmas Eve 2010.
Myrna Smith was a key member of the group 'The Sweet Inspirations' who were founded back in the fifties by Cissy Houston.
Over the years the group sang backup vocals for a series of key artists such as Wilson Pickett, Solomon Burke, Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Dusty Springfield and even Van Morrison.
The "Sweets" started touring with Elvis presley in summer 1969-77.
The core group became Myrna Smith, Estelle Brown, Sylvia Shemwell along with new member Portia Griffin.

While performing on the 'Elvis: The Concert' last march, Myrna developed pneumonia which eventually led to kidney failure and a stroke. She died in Canyon Oaks Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, LA.
The sweet inspirations also provided backup vocals for Colin Paul and the Persuaders on several occasions.
we send our condolences to Myrna,s family and of course to Estelle and Portia.
She was a very special lady.

Check out our sweet inspirations page.

HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT CHRISTMAS. A BIG THANKYOU TO ALL WHO CAME TO OUR SHOW IN LIVERPOOL ON BOXING DAY AND TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE SHOW AT THE DURRANT HOUSE HOTEL IN DEVON ON THE 27TH. NOW LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR SOLD OUT SHOW ON NEW YEARS EVE AT SALE MASONIC.
