Elberace : Gay Elvis - Elvis Impersonator - Greenwich, London Event Location: Grand Pavillion Theatre - Porthcawl Event Type: Porthcawl Elvis Festival 24th September 2022
Ours is the largest Elvis festival in the world with around a hundred Elvis Tribute Artists taking part. Established in 2004, the highlight of the event is the Elvies Award Show. In 2019 we created a new diversity award and presented it to Elberace. Being honest, I was concerned how our audience of die-hard Elvis fans would support an act outside of the orthodox box. However, Elberace blew the roof off, both at the award show and also at the live show BBC broadcast from the Festival. We brought him back last year and the audience reaction was the same. Outside of actual performance , professionally as a producer, I found James very easy to work with. 100% professional and reliable

Elberace : Gay Elvis - Elvis Impersonator - Greenwich, London Event Location: Porthcawl - Wales Event Type: Radio Broadcast 24th September 2022
I engaged Elberace (Gay Elvis) to perform live on BBC Radio Wales which broadcasts The Owen Money show , live , from the world famous annual Elvis Festival at Porthcawl in South Wales . We are always joined by Elvis tribute acts and James was fantastic – he was a real crowd pleaser and went down such a storm with the audience that we invited him back for a second appearance in 2022 , after we had a break because of Covid . I was really impressed at how he turned up in plenty of time and he looked great in his full Elvis rig . He did a lovely interview with Owen and really entered into the spirit of our show .

'We booked Gay Elvis for Southampton Pride 2022 and were absolutely delighted with his performance, professionalism and pazazz! The crowd adored him and from an organising committee's point of view, he was a dream to work with. The communication was great all the way through the process, he was quick at responding to requests and sending tracks and promo material and we would highly recommend him to anyone! Needless to say we have booked him again for Southampton Pride 2023 and can't wait to have him back!

Event Type: 60th birthday Lockdown Live feed
29th May 2020
All the family and friends who tuned in last night have been giving rave reviews, and we're all really keen to see your next gig in person. You should absolutely market your lockdown show for birthdays and occasions because it was truly fantastic beginning to end and the most fun we've had in weeks! Wish you could have seen the look on my dad's face when the backing track started! I can't thank you enough for the level of work and energy you put into it, it really showed and the result was a total production!! It truly felt like a live show just for us, and exceeded all my expectations, you should be proud as you are a very talented performer. Worth every penny and you've definitely gained some new fans for live shows and your online presence :) XXX Kirsten
