Back Up Trust

JD was incredible, he set off the evening with a bang and all our guests were very impressed. He really immersed himself into the performance and involved the audience as much as he could. We would 100% recommend him and will definitely consider using him for futureevents.

Iris Athley

Having been a fan of Elvis since the 1950s, I saw you recently at Warners Norton Grange and thought you were fantastic. You won’t remember me but you sang Love Me Tender to me and a poor old 77 year old was smitten. Keep on making people happy XXXXXX

Henley Rugby Club

JD was an absolute professional and great guy – probably the best Elvis tribute I’ve seen. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves – he engaged with the and didn’t disappoint. We look forward to welcoming him back to Henley in the not too distant future.

Dr. Beverley and Tim Morais

We would like to thank JD King for his totally fantastic performance at our wedding 5 months ago. He brought everyone to the dance floor until the end of his set. It was so memorable and unique that our friends still talk about his show.  My seven old daughter has now been converted to an Elvis fan after seeing him. We would see him every month if we could!! Thank you so much again.

June Andrews

Always having been a big Elvis fan I vowed after his death that I would never go and see an Elvis impersonator because there can never be another Elvis. Wow am I pleased my friend persuaded me to go to see JD King!

He is amazing. Every thing about him, his movement, his voice even that magic lip curl was absolutely fantastic. His stage outfits were unbelievable. Nothing but the best. J D becomes Elvis! It was just a magical performance. Thank you JD Elvis himself would have been proud with everything about your Elvis show. Many thanks.
