JD King has become a regular TV & radio guest as Elvis

Famed for his fantastic impression of Elvis Presley, he is not just a huge Elvis fan and one of the top Elvis lookalikes. He is also very charismatic and highly knowledgeable, leading to regular appearances on radio and television not just as the best Elvis impersonator but as an expert on Elvis Presley’s life.

Elvis Presley is considered the most significant cultural force in twentieth-century popular music. He was the first rock ‘n’ roll superstar. Elvis passed away on August 16, 1977, at the young age of 42, yet no other entertainer of this generation has come close to having such an impact on society.

It’s been nearly 40 years since the King left us, but his legacy lives on through his music, movies and countless impersonators who are still paying homage to America’s music legend. One of those impersonators is JD King, who has been performing as Elvis for over 15 years and is often named Europe’s best tribute act.


JD King Elvis tribute Time Out online article cover for ELVIS movie review

JD King was invited to a special press screening of the new ELVIS biopic by Time Out Magazine to feature his thoughts in their move review. Here’s an extract:

“…I was wary going in, but I thought the film was fantastic. I wondered if they’d be able to capture this shy, humble country boy who just feels the music and translates it on the stage, but they really did. I knew the film would be quite bombastic and amped-up in the Baz Luhrmann style, but it really captured his humanity…”
