John was great! John was incredibly accommodating of the needs of our Memory Care community and did a wonderful job connecting with our residents (which is not always easy). He enabled our residents to enjoy music from their past and reminisce about a musical artist they all enjoyed. Thank you John, you were wonderful!

So , I have to say , we organized a surprise party for my Mom, who is a die hard Elvis fan . I knew whoever I booked would need to bring their A game along . From the start Elvis Powers was on point with everything. Easy to work with , accommodating to our schedules, and a very nice guy . Our party was a hot and my mother enjoyed her evening. I would definitely recommend Elvis Powers to all who are looking for a great time , who got everyone involved, thank you so much for the best time !!!!

If you want the real deal Elvis, Elvis Powers is it! I had my Mom's 50th and Elvis Powers performance was the highlight of the night. Elvis really knew how to work the crowd and made sure everyone was having the time of their life! He threw in special touches for the birthday girl too, which we were not expecting so he definitely went above and beyond my expectations! Since the party, I've been overwhelmed with messages about how awesome he was and how much they loved the performance. Elvis Powers was absolutely phenomenal and I would highly recommend booking him for your events!

John performed at my parents 50th anniversary party and was fantastic. He entertained everyone at the party we all loved him! He was professional, and accommodated all of the special requests we gave him. He personalized the show to fit with the theme and my parents personalities. He was very thorough, requested information before the party, and met with us afterward to make sure everything went well! I would definitely use him again, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment at a party. Thank you John for a job well done!

This was the best party ever! My mother loves Elvis. This is the third time we have hired John Gilpin to perform for mom's birthday. This is the second time he performed in her nursing home. All the residents of the home really get involved with his music. They were all singing and clapping, some even dancing. This is a memory care facility where he performed. It is wonderful to see the patients remembering Elvis and his music. I would definitely recommend John Gilpin to anyone. He is very kind and patient with the elderly.

John was great! All the guests loved his performance! He was accommodating and very easy to work with. John arrived early, set up, and prepared for his big debut without anyone knowing about his special role. He made quite an entrance with his smart "Elvis attire!" He has a great voice and song his heart out! Soon everyone was singing along and clapping to the beat! He made our party very special and memorable! I would definitely hire him again, and would recommend him to anyone desiring a trip down memory lane to see and hear the "king!" Thank you John for helping to make our party so much fun!

Elvis Powers made our wedding banquet special. We weren't going to do a formal dance, because we hadn't practiced, but Elvis caused us to get up and dance in front of all of our guests. He commanded the room (big ballroom with 350 guests) and I thought sung the standards very well. He also worked seamlessly with our DJ to get the music loaded into the A/V system. We were very pleased, and would definitely recommend him without reservation.

John did a wonderful job first as a DJ kept the crowd entertained, and even did a game that we requested for the centerpieces that he had never done with ease! But he outdid himself as Elvis for our countdown to midnight for New Year's! We are still getting the compliments from everyone on how awesome he was and what a great time they all had! Thank you and you will not go wrong with John/Elvis! Kim

He made my Mother's Day! He was so wonderful the way he interacted with the people in the nursing home. He had people up dancing and singing that have not done that in years. This was the second time we have hired John. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

John's performance as Elvis was truly one of the best that I've seen. He kept everybody entertained and even spent some time with the guests for picture taking. He was very professional and easy to work with. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

John was a true pleasure to work with in planning a surprise visit from Elvis at our 40th anniversary party. His suggestion to pose as a DJ so my husband wouldn't know why he was there worked out beautifully. He communicated with me promptly and made sure that he incorporated what I wanted for the performance and the renewal of vows. Everyone enjoyed his performance. John as Elvis had a great way of connecting with the audience. He made the renewing of our vows special and entertaining as well! I would recommend him to anyone.
