“★★★★★ – Critics’ choice – and the one to watch”
Time Out
“★★★★★ – Devereaux’s voice was exceptional – he is brilliant – a must see!”
Fringe Review
“Britain’s favourite Elvis Impersonator.”
Radio Reverb
“Having grown up with the king, just below God and above Tchaikovsky, when I saw Jim I knew Elvis was back in the building.”
Kim Wilde (Popstar & No.1 recording artist)
“Closely resembling Elvis when he looked his best, Jim pays tribute to the King with incredible stage craft and is as close to the charismatic icon himself as anyone will ever get.”
E3 group
“Mix together Las Vegas razzmatazz, some magic from Memphis and a dollop of Brighton rock and you have Jim Devereaux. He has the looks and sound of the original…all the moves…he had the crowd rocking! The youngest, most authentic, lip-curling Elvis Impersonator around.”
The Argus
“The Best Elvis we’ve ever seen, aside from the man himself.”
The Brand Inside
“J.D. King* – possibly the cutest Elvis impersonator ever – got thighs trembling and gussets moistening as he gyrated his way through Elvis classics.”
Cliterati.co.uk
“Stealing the show was the extremely talented and gorgeous young ‘J.D. King’* who had everyone dancing ’til the early hours and everyone was chanting for more.”
Eternal Spirits
“He was brilliant! I’m not a great Elvis fan but he did his very best songs and it worked extremely well. Would you believe he is the grandson of Ed Devereaux of Skippy fame? Now there’s quality.”
The Real Chrisparkle
“This showpiece always has the audience up dancing, laughing and gawping in amazement. What an atmosphere – this act literally leaves the audience begging for more and that’s the wonder.. the wonder of Jim.”
Contraband Entertainment
“Jim Devereaux is a frighteningly talented individual – a natural born star. As J.D. King*, he has hearts throbbing, aching and skipping beats in perfect time to the music. With his intense charisma, audience rapport and professionalism it’s no surprise that Jim is in so much demand – by audiences and producers alike. As a producers dream in a bespangled jumpsuit, Jim is irrefutably the ‘King of Encore’.”

* = Jim Devereaux is trading as ‘J.D. King’ from September 2015. Where asterisked Jim’s previous show name ‘This Is Elvis’ was used in the original review.

Linda & David Rowntree

Thank you so much for making our anniversary party such a HUGE success. You were TRULY fantastic. Locals thought you were performing at Reading Rock Festival. Cant recommend STRONGLY enough. Elvis aka J.D. King put on a fantastic show and guests were raving about him saying he sounded like the “Real Thing”.
He may like to know that neighbours thought they could hear him performing at Reading Rock Festival. He certainly has a GREAT talent and future ahead of him.

Awesome Elvis Act. I got great feedback on your gig – Thanks for being fabulous 🙂

Steve Pippin & Dr. Robert Mughon

Had the distinct pleasure of working with Jim when he did a show for our company at the Ritz London. He was tremendous!
Jim really brought that unique “Elvis” vibe to our event. The song selection was great, as was the entire band, the energy and the performance. HIGHLY recommended!

Jane Collier

My daughter and son in law booked JD King Elvis for their wedding August 12th.
It was an inspired decision as JD was amazing. He had the whole party dancing from the off.
His voice is amazing – just like Elvis and his outfit was amazing too.
Please pass on our thanks to him and thank him for setting the standard for the evening wedding celebration.
We will definitely be recommending him to others.
