John was the best!! We hired him for my mom’s 80th birthday party and we all loved him! He had us all believing that he was the King with his voice and moves! John is the real deal and so gracious to work with! He made Elvis proud!

10 Stars!! John & Peggy are so amazing!! Very professional & personable :) TeddyBears & Scarves #Precious Mom's 90th will never be forgotten by anyone!! Even the "kids" who Mom worried wouldn't know who Elvis was Kept saying "ELVIS is Here!!" Whispers in crowd "Can't wait to go to work & tell everyone, I saw ELVIS" John was so Elvis when he knelt in front of Mom "I can't help falling in love with you" There are no words for how happy she was & all her guests Friends, Offspring, Grandchildren, GreatGrandchildren & GreatGreatGrandchildren All had the biggest smiles :D One regret... Not hiring a video crew!! Hafta do it again!! Love YOU John & Peggy!!

John "Elvis" Lyons was absolutely amazing!! This was a surprise for my moms 80th birthday and boy was she surprised. John was very professional, accommodating, friendly and talented, he interacted with all of our guest, he had us laughing, crying, and dancing in our seats. After the performance John took the time to talk to and take pictures with all of those that wanted a moment of his time. I can not say thank you enough to John for making this a fantastic experience for all of us and a memory for my mom that will last a lifetime. I would very highly recommend John to anyone looking for a fabulous Elvis experience.

Completely exceeded our expectations! We hired John Elvis Lyons to perform at a socially distanced outdoor birthday parade/party. He was completely in character and we were blown away at how talented he was, from his presentation to his voice and everything in between!

FuneralReviewed on March 17, 2020From Madison, WI

John, Peg, and Jonathan were a joy to work with. We booked the Lyons family to perform at my father's funeral with a few days notice. John was thorough, professional, kind, and communicative. John and his family are amazingly talented. The set was well crafted and tailored for our event. They brought a lot of joy to our family during a difficult time. Would highly recommend.

Hired "Elvis" for my mom's birthday party. She was in heaven and totally lifted her spirits. He was so fun, and we all (and the neighbors) loved the whole performance. Even our 2 year old grandson was clapping for him. He Rocked our party and have had the surrounding neighbors talking about how fun it was to hear him. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on August 27, 2020From Palatine, IL

John "Elvis" Lyons did a phenomenal job and performance for my parent's 30th wedding anniversary. They were so surprised when he showed up, and John offered the perfect cover of "setting up for karaoke". Then the grand performance was wonderful - he even got my parents to cry multiple times. It was so heartwarming and they had an amazing time. The guests also had so much fun - even in a pandemic, John helped make sure everyone felt safe but also brought the party to a whole new level. If you are questioning booking, GO FOR IT! You will not regret it!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 14, 2019From Cambria, WI

The whole experience with John was positive from the start. Communication regarding the event excellent. We had a time change only a few days before the event and John accommodated it with no issue. The performance was perfect! The songs and interaction with the group was exactly what we were hoping for. The “bride and groom” were surprised and commented that the performance was perfect and absolutely the highlight of the day! Thanks John!!

John was great. He came in early and setup before the party started. He put on a great show that had everyone engaged and enjoying it. After he performed he stayed around for pictures with everyone. He really made my uncle's birthday memorable and special. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an Elvis.

This review is long overdue. John and Jonathan have been performing at our annual Elvis Night the last 4-season. We have been very satisfied each and every year. John is very accommodating and as long as we schedule an Elvis Night, John and Jonathan are the preferred choice of the Windy City ThunderBolts. We highly recommend them.
