Elvis Q&A – Your Guide To Booking The Best Elvis

1) Is JD King Elvis tribute a professional high quality act?

With performance training prior to 15 years (to date) professional experience as an Elvis impersonator, JD King has been there and done that when it comes to performing as Elvis on stage.

So when you book JD, you can rest assured that your event will be delivered in a slick, consistent and entertaining manner. Jim’s approach is to to try and recreate Elvis at his best (not, as some like to do as a joke, his worst) all the while taking the material seriously – but never himself too seriously!

2) Will JD King Elvis impersonator tailor the show to the feel and style of my wedding event?

J.D. consistently invests deeply to ensure that he is only using the highest quality materials and equipment when presenting his tribute to the King. From the costumes to the sound/lighting to backing tracks and musicians; Jim only uses the best.

Unlike a lot of other acts who will still try to work with old, outdated and poor quality equipment, with badly produced electronic backing tracks and poorly tailored costumes – JD, by contrast, presents a truly professional and high quality show.

3) Is JD King Elvis tribute too old too perform properly my party?

Jim Devereaux at 32 years old is perfectly placed to realistically present Elvis in all eras of his career. Elvis Presley performed from the age of 18 to his death at 42 – putting JD right in the middle of that path!

Unlike so many tributes, who are significantly older than the King was when he died (and it shows!), with JD King you’re getting the best of all worlds with his excellent mix of youth and experience.

4) Will JD King Elvis let me choose my own songs and era for a show to fit my party?

Jim prides himself on providing the best quality experience and value for money every single time he performs as an Elvis tribute artist. That’s why he is always keen to make sure clients get exactly what they want out of their booking.

By providing a song list with over 230 standard Elvis songs to choose from, as well as many different show types and all the famous looks/costumes of Elvis throughout his career, JD King will perform for your event exactly as you want it and can perform any song Elvis ever recorded, no matter the obscurity (upon request).

5) Will JD King Elvis impersonator care about the performance at my party and put the effort in? Is he a fan of Elvis Presley?

The very first music Jim Devereaux fell in love with as a young child was Elvis Presley’s and many many years on, that has not changed. It is the reason Jim became JD King and that passion and commitment to Elvis is plain for all to see in his performances.

There are many Elvis tributes who don’t have much interest in or knowledge of the King (only doing it because they think it’s easy) and it shows. Rest assured, Jim’s passion for the music of the 20th century’s greatest music icon has never wavered and because of that, JD is always striving to be the best tribute he can be – never settling for an ‘it’ll do’ or ‘close enough’ approach.

6) What’s the best Elvis impersonator and tribute show around? Is it really JD King’s Elvis show?

You’re only as good as your last performance and, as you will see in the professional reviews section and the customer reviews in the sidebar, JD King’s performances are consistently rated as first class.

It’s not just professional reviews that matter though, it’s the feedback that the audience gives and leaving each and every one of them happy at the end of the night is Jim’s biggest priority. Check out our certified customer reviews on the right side of the webpage and feel confident that you’re getting the best quality product around.

After watching Jim at my friends party, I had to have him for my 50th. My guests were a big mix of ages yet everyone was blown away by Jims performance. Jim warmed up the crowd & opened up the dancing with a bang - you can't help but get up and dance. He spoke and sang to individuals during his act and made a big fuss of me on my special day. Money well spent, indeed.

K Bidwell

Elvis aka Jim gave an outstanding acoustic performance for my elderly father (at home) who had suffered a severe stoke some 6 months earlier. Jim sounds and acts just like Elvis Presley. He was exceptionally kind and caring throughout the evening and chatted compassionately. Jim certainly put a huge smile on my fathers face and gave him a such a tremendous boost. At the end of the evening my father said 'he was fantastic and no one can ever take that memory away from me'. My family and I cannot praise Jim enough for the pleasure and delight he gave not only to my parents but also to the rest of the small family gathering. It was worth every penny to see a big smile return to my dads face and also as he tried to clap and sing along. If my dad was able to dance he would have but sadly he is now wheelchair and bed bound.
I first saw Jim's performing (Dec 2016) on Worthing Pier at a Las Vegas Burlesque evening. Jim stole the show with his amazing performance impersonating Elvis ...he has all the little quirks right down to a fine art including the twitchy lip... even Elvis Presley would have been hugely impressed and proud!! Jim is spot on. I was blown away at the big event just as much as I was later blown away at the small family event. I highly recommend Jim and give him 100

D Pearce

Excellent track selection, charming with the guests, exceptional outfit choice and most importantly sounds just like Elvis!
Arrived on time with his own PA system which was of very good quality. Performed a belting set that had the crowd engaged for the whole performance. All the guests were waxing lyrical about how good a performance it was and quite rightly.
It was an absolute pleasure to watch his performance and we would definitely book again.

D Gant

Hired JD for our recent wedding. What a master stroke it was too! We had a live band to keep things ticking along nicely but when Jim performed his 2 slots he totally jacked it up to the next level and completely stole the show. He is young, good looking, full of energy and has mastered his art perfectly. All the little Elvis quirks are in there including the twitchy lip, and he has everyone up dancing from the minute he enters. The voice is just fantastic. We couldn't have asked for more. On top of this he is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Very polite and professional and more than happy to accommodate any requests. At the end of the show he doesn't just sneak out the back door and away, once changed, he makes an effort to mingle a little with the crowd and say hello before officially leaving the building! A real party starter and a talking point for our guests for years to come. So good we have booked him again for later in the year as you just know it will work. Thanks Jim, you are by far the best Elvis out there for me by a mile and I have seen many. The great man himself would be very proud.

Simon Hulme

What a performer and what a genuinely great guy to deal with!!
I booked JD King Elvis Impersonator as a surprise for my husband on our wedding day. We wanted "Let It Be Me" as our first dance and as the backing track started (which my husband thought was the original song), Elvis appeared through the crowd singing - it was perfect!
JD King's attention to detail with his costumes, moves and facial expressions would make you believe you were watching "The King" himself. His repertoire is outstanding and he delivers each song with such passion, pitch perfection and he is professional above and beyond.
We would not hesitate to recommend JD King to anyone if you want a superb tribute to Elvis and a great night ... I have lost count how many of our guests have said how he really made the evening reception a night they won't forget.
We just need another reason to have a party because we'll be booking JD King again without a doubt.
Thank you for all you did to make our wedding reception fantastic xx

Julie Bannister-Green

"Elvis"was extremely friendly to everyone and every guest was waiting patiently for elvis to perform and we were not disappointed, he was amazing, his act is superb with lots of Interaction with all the guests and they were thrilled to have "elvis" so close any song requested was performed perfectly and all the guests were up on the floor without any persuasion in fact it was extremely hard for elvis to go home as the calls for one more song kept on coming we would definitely book elvis again and again as we have the last 3 times for our ladies nights and he just gets better every time

Ronnie Clark

An excellent Elvis. A truly professional and a well honed impersonation that sounded and looked great. The King himself would be proud.

Jonny Forsyth

I first saw Elvis aka Jim deveroux in Inverness ... outstanding amazing talent ...so looking forward to seeing him again in Brighton this summer ...not to be missed long live the king :)

Caroline Robertson

I Met Jim in Edinburgh a few years ago when I was helping other performers at a Vegas New Year Show.
I though he doesn't look anything like elvis but I went to get pictures and waited to see him on stage !
Oh My God !
I haven't seen a real Elvis Concert except on You Tube and I was blown away when he started singing
Jim Sings Like Elvis , Moves Like Elvis and I Thought it WAS ELVIS !
The whole place was Bouncing ! There were People Dancing in The Aisles , on the stairs and one lady threw her Underwear at him !
Jim Devereaux was Ready For Edinburgh but Edinburgh was Not Ready for Jim Devereaux!
I was brought up an Elvis Fan and Jim is just Brilliant !

Andy Johnston

Before I met JD King, I thought that Elvis impersonators were a comedy act performed by fools and dwarfs.
However, from the moment that JD King stepped onto the stage in his authentic rhinestone encrusted jump suit I knew this guy was different and as soon as he started to belt out the Elvis classics, I knew this guy was the real deal.
The King may be dead, but long live JD King!

James Malach

Absolutely Fantastic!!!! We booked JD King for our wedding in March and he absolutely rocked it!!! Everyone loved him - the total highlight of our day! I could not recommend him enough. It was just what the party needed - something for all ages. HE IS ELVIS!!!! 5*****

Hannah Barclay

I booked this Elvis for my mum and dads surprise 40th wedding anniversary. He put on a really good show and made the night that extra bit special. Excellent impersonator and sounds just like Elvis. You will not be disappointed if you book him, everyone had a great night- even the non-Elvis fans (is there such a thing?!). I definitely recommend making the booking. Go on, do it :).

Balinder Kular

We hired JD King to entertain us at my fifties birthday party. Jim was superb, he is totally professional at all times and a hugely talented singer and performer. He is engaging, charismatic and charming. Smouldering onstage and delightful offstage. He has already been rebooked by the venue where my party took place and was a total star. He took the party by storm - my party was filled with professional singers and instrumentalists - all of whom were thoroughly impressed with Jim's musicianship, performance skills and beautiful voice. We hope to see him perform again very soon!

Julie Bale

We have booked J.D. king (Jim Devereaux) on several occasions for our venue Ye Olde Black Horse, Rottingdean Brighton, highly professional, Entertaining, enchanting tribute to Elvis!! - Jim's portrayal is uncanny from the "look" - the "costumes" and overall presentation!!! Vocals are SPOT ON!!! Hence he will be continued to be booked for the unforeseen future!!! thanks Jim!!' best in the Bizz!!!'

Dec Clancy

Totally Professional easy going act, who turns up early and made the whole night a complete success, i'm very impressed and so were my Customers ! thanks to JD King !

David Polikett

Jim is a great professional, giving a great performance.
My mum is blind, so it was important to have someone who sounded as much like Elvis as we could get. She thought a CD was playing at first!!
Well done!!

Lee Newitt

Always the star! Fantastic show every time. Jim adds a personal touch to each performance, he performs in stunning outfits with true "Elvis" showmanship. Never two performances the same, he wows the audience with amazing ballads and the next moment gets them dancing on their feet. A true star!

Michelle Turner

J D King is not only the best Elvis vocal I've ever heard, his ability to capture and stun the audience is to be admired. The superb jumpsuit is just one of the things that will dazzle you! He performed at our wedding reception and everyone, young and old, including non Elvis fans continue to tell us how much they loved the show. He was brilliantly interactive with all the guests and wowed them with an energetic and interactive presence. Head and shoulders above any other Elvis tribute act I've seen before. A huge thank you for An outstanding contribution to our special day. Brett & Sarah

Brett Harman

I have known J D King for many a years and go to his shows on a regular basis.
I have had the pleasure of booking him for a surprise party and I was amazed how his show has developed. What I liked was, that he sings the usual Elvis songs, but here and there includes lesser known pieces. I would recommend him to anyone.

Anna De Wit

We're huge Elivs fans and have probably seen Jim's Elvis performance more than a dozen times. Weve also seen a number of other Elvis performers and Jim is way ahead of all them. He slips naturally into the Elvis persona including deploying the jokey Elvis banter but best of all, his voice, movement and costumes are fantastic and he produces performances as close to the original Elvis renditions as its possible to be. Weve never seen a show where he hasnt given 110 percent, and if you love Elvis, I guarantee youll come away from his show with a giant smile on your face.

Francis & Liz Ainley

Having been around for the original Elvis and a major fan I'm impressed with J.D. KIng's impersonation of the great man. He has the voice, the moves and the personality to take an audience back in time, almost like watching the real thing.

Jan Hone

JD King's Elvis Show is one of the most authentic Tribute experiences I have ever had. JD's Elvis is spot-on and he gives a high-energy performance. This show is outstanding!

Gloria Miller

We hired Jim to perform at our Elvis book launch event held at the Ritz London. He was just superb! Jim really nails the Elvis persona, and kept our crowd of celebs and media very well entertained! Highly recommended!

Stevan Pippin

Absolutely fabulous.....Jim played at my Birthday Party in November. No one could believe how good he was. Surreal was a recurring word!! Will be booking him again this year for sure. He is exceptional entertainment and worth every penny. S Weihs, Ashdown Forest

Sulaika Weihs

Jack Caplin

Fringe Review

Britains favouriteElvis 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 originalall the moveshe had the crowd rocking! The youngest, most authentic, lip-curlingElvis Impersonatoraround.

The Argus

The Best Elvis weve ever seen, aside from the man himself.

The Brand Inside

J.D. King* possibly the cutestElvis impersonatorever 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! Im 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 theres 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 thats 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 its 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.
