CHRIS KING - co founder FESTIVAL OF LEGENDS
ALBERTO COHEN - co founder FESTIVAL OF LEGENDS
Chris has many years’ experience in the entertainment industry , starting out at the age of 15 in his own rock band in his native Wales , before moving to Southern Spain in 1990 , where he quickly became involved in the very lively music scene that was thriving there , becoming the co-presenter of the Costa del Sol’s very first ever mobile karaoke company - ”The All Stars Karaoke” , which is still running to this very day under the control of best friend Steve Fozz ! Chris started his own music agency “Chris King Promotions” in 1996 , bringing over some of the very best tribute acts on the UK circuit , with many from Granada TV’s top show of the time - “Stars In Their Eyes” , to quickly establish himself as one of the most well known tribute act agents of the era , and was probably the first agent to ever bring tribute acts to Spain from the UK . The business progressed into bringing over tribute bands , original recording artistes , soap stars , and many famous “household name” comedians , like Frank Carson , Jimmy Cricket , The Grumbleweeds , Stan Boardman , The Krankies , Paul Melba , The Brother Lees , Billy Pearce , Jimmy Jones etc , during his time as the main agent for the most famous cabaret bar ever on the Costa del Sol - THE ELEFANTE , as well as supplying these acts to venues in Benidorm and Tenerife as well for many years .

In 2015 , Chris met up purely by accident with Alberto Cohen , and although as different in their backgrounds and ways as chalk and cheese , they very quickly struck up a great rapport and the rest as they say , is history - The Festival Of Legends was born ! Chris and Alberto staged many great concerts along the Costa del Sol , including some classics in the famous Summer venue , the Mijas Auditorium , and in July 2017 had the honour of being asked to provide artistes for the famous Starlite Marbella festival , bringing over the highly acclaimed Bootleg Beatles from the UK , and backing them with the awesome 35 piece Malaga Symphony Orchestra , to recreate the Sgt Pepper’s album live on stage , to a sell out crowd ! The latest step in their business together , in Autumn 2015 , was to start making Themed Music Cruises , with Spain’s leading cruise company - Pullmantur , which has very quickly gone from strength to strength .
