“Critics’ choice – and the one to watch”
“Devereaux’s voice was exceptional – he is brilliant – a must see!”
“Jim Devereaux is a frighteningly talented individual – a natural-born star. As JD 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’.”
“The best Elvis we’ve ever seen, aside from the man himself.”
The Brand Inside
“Having grown up with the king, just below God and above Tchaikovsky, when I saw Jim I knew Elvis was back in the building.”
“Just like Elvis was in the building. JD King is not only the best Elvis vocalist I have ever heard, his ability to capture and stun the audience is to be admired. He was brilliantly energetic and interactive with the audience, especially the women, giving them kisses and scarfs after mopping his brow. His six-piece band The Burning Love Band, and two support singers The Sweet Soul Singers were superb and completed the whole Elvis experience.”
“Talented and handsome, JD is the most respected and renowned Elvis impersonator in the world.”
This Is Brighton
“Britain’s favourite Elvis Impersonator.”
“JD Sounded and looked the part completely, the impersonation was excellent and for the audience here at the Phoenix it was like they were stepping back in time for a performance from the King! Looking forward to his return next year!”
“Closely resembling Elvis when he looked his best, Jim pays tribute to the King with incredible stagecraft and is as close to the charismatic icon himself as anyone will ever get.”
“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.”
“J.D. King* – possibly the cutest Elvis impersonator ever – got thighs trembling and gussets moistening as he gyrated his way through Elvis classics.”
“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.”
“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
“Wow!!! What a great night’s entertainment. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Great voice, great personality and (as a longstanding fan of Elvis) I could hear that JD has got all the little nuances just about spot on.”
“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.”
* = Jim Devereaux has been known as ‘JD King’ since September 2015. Where asterisked Jim’s previous show name ‘This Is Elvis’ was used in the original review.

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 future events.
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

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.
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.
I just wanted to say on behalf of Henley Rugby Club how brilliant JD was. An absolute professional and great guy- probably the best Elvis tribute I’ve seen.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves – he engaged with the audience and didn’t disappoint. We look forward to welcoming him back to Henley in the not too distant future.
J.D was absolutely AMAZING, surpassed all my expectations. He made our wedding day so so special and we can’t say thank you enough. He was so nice and professional, has a wonderful confidence, perfect voice and beautiful jumpsuits.
We didn’t want him to leave!
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.
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!
Awesome Elvis Act. I got great feedback on your gig – Thanks for being fabulous 🙂
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.
We would both like to say thank you so much for making our wedding day so special! The feedback from the guests was great with many saying it had been the best wedding they had been to and that you were one of the best Elvis’s they had seen.
