Rick Torres is a guaranteed Hit!!! This is what I was told when I mentioned to a friend that I looking for a very accomplished Elvis Impersonator for an appearance to sing a few songs. Rick Torres is the best! I will be using him again without a doubt. Sincerely, Debbie Martindale

Hi Rick and Bobbie, Thanks for being the best part of a PERFECT fifties themed 60th birthday celebration! Thanks to you, the party was even better than I had hoped. The 50s and 60s music and Elvis performance were perfect and really made the party the celebration that it was. We attended two weddings in the last year, each had a DJs. One DJ was obnoxious and one DJ was boring. You two were such fun! People are already saying we had the party of the year! Thank you.
– Jean B, Birthday Party
I was at a Wedding in El Cerrito, and was so impressed with Rick Torres, we booked him for our Valentines function on the 14th. I have received so many calls and emails about him, and the outstanding Job, and performance he and his co. provided. Rick Torres and King Creole Entertainment are pure magic, and a guaranteed Hit!
– Eva G, Valentines Corporate Function
It was a small but memorable ceremony. Rick Torres was our Officiate and Elvis Impersonator. He was just so incredible to work with. We had to reschedule a few times due to family conflicts, and he was always so understanding and accommodating. We really felt like he cared allot about what we were trying to do and not just doing it as a job. He is the type of individual you dont come across often. He is an over and above very exceptional performer!
– Angelina N, Wedding Ceremony & Reception
Rick was truly "THE KING" impersonator, he catered to all our needs and requests for special songs. The Birthday girl (70 years young)was very surprised as were the rest of the guests by his proessional performance. Many said it was better than some shows they had seen in Las Vegas. Many asked for his number as they would use Rick in the future. It was great that he stayed and made sure everyone got a picture with him. Thanks again Aleta and Tom.
– Aleta M, Birthday Party
If there was ever a meaning of the term inspirational entertainer it certainly pertains to Ricks performance last weekend at our event. Women wept and swooned as he approached them! I could not believe the effect he had on the audience! We had one of the Ultimate Tribute Shows. Ultimate is another word that sums it well! Rick ran out of business cards and started writing his information on napkins. He signed the napkins for a good time call Elvis! LOL! I Love it!
– Evelyn V, Dinner Dance
My Grammy Gram went over like a bomb in the house! The Rock a Billy 20 minute Elvis quickie was just amazing and we are so grateful to the best Elvis around Rick Torres for bringing Elvis back to my 80 year old grandmother who just loves Elvis! He was so smooth in all the hip swings and hand movements. His voice we knew was going to be great thanks to all the examples on this site and his own personal site. Top performer and service !!!!!
– Anthony A, Birthday Party
Thank you so much! Rick Torres is everything we expected and more! The Elvis quickie was just perfect! We had 30 kids and parents who were so impressed that when he finished they rushed him for photographs! He has the coolest sound system with this L.E.D. Elvis sign on top. It sounds like a very nice house stereo but it is portable with a wireless microphone, and runs on its own power. Rick said he had it custom made specifically for the Elvis Quickie. So professional!! I have to say after he left most of the people at first thought he was lip-syncing, but quickly realized he was not. What a voice!!
– Tracy B, Bar Mitzvah
Velvet Grill and Creamery will never be the same Rick rocked the place with his gold lame and blue swede shoes!! We were outside taking pictures, and people were pulling into the parking lot just to take a picture with the best Elvis impersonator! Looked and sounded Astounding.
– Alexandra R, Birthday Party
Rick Torres was very accomadating and responded quickly to my request. It was my mother's 70th birthday, and although she is a conservative lady, Rick made her feel great. He really knows how to break the ice and sees to it that everybody has fun. My aunts were dancing and they all had a blast. They will never forget this event, especially my mother. This made her 70th the most memorable. Also, although he did not have to do this, because I live in LA and was unable to be there, he sent me pictures and video clips of all the songs he sang. He deserves all the great reviews I had read about him.
– Mike H, Birthday Party
UNBELIEVABLE PERFORMANCE!!!!!!!!!! What a Fantastic Performance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mahalo Rick! I can see why so many people hire you. Everyone wished you could say a sing a few more but I told them, you had to go and swoon a few more girls today. Loved you so much!
– Nancy M, Birthday Party
Elvis Impersonator Rick Torres has to be the best, and I will tell you why. My Mother has got to be the biggest Elvis fan on the planet! She has a room 10 by 10 just pack with Elvis keepsakes ,and stuff she collected at his concerts. She just wept through the entire show, and kept saying, oh my god your incredible to him. When he left my mom said he was very gifted and she was putting the pictures and the scarf he gave her in her Elvis room. I was so happy I hired him. It was more special than I could have imagined it would be.
– Valerie S, Mothers Day
Ricks performance was awesome! We had a contest with various departments we did a Vegas theme. We won first place because people had so much fun in our Theme,and of course with Rick Torres. Not only is he an all around good guy and great to do business with, but his performance was outstanding. He made the ladies blush and the guys move their feet! Even our executives were climbing on the desks to get a better view. I look forward to doing business with Rick again and highly recommend him.
– Rebecca R, Corporate Function
All my mom talks about is Elvis. If it was too much before the flood gates are wide open now! It was everything just to keep her in her seat during the appearance. The Elvis quickie is the best, and we highly recommend Elvis impersonator Rick Torres!!
– Diana L, Birthday Party
Rick Torres was very, very entertaining as Elvis. Dressed beautifully and sang great!!! Was very accomodating to all the ladies at my party for pictures and hugs!!! He even danced with some of the gals!!! He made my birthday party very special! Thank you!! Cindy Good Visalia, Ca.
– Cynthia G, Birthday Party
I called Rick with 1 days notice after hearing about his fantastic performance in Visalia from a mutual friend who attended the performance. Rick has got to be the best Elvis I have ever seen!! He also, helped me pick the suit, songs, scarf color, and illustration for the scarf. You can see by the Elvis Quickie service which is the minimum performance offered, that he takes allot into consideration to creating a special experience for you. You really can feel that Elvis show concert feeling! I can only imagine what a tribute show through them would feel like. We are actually considering it for a family reunion next year.
– Tony H, Birthday Party
My Mom loved it! Completely Loved it! I know she just sat there watching at first but, she was in a complete state of shock! Everyone was trilled, and commented for hours on the performance, beautiful costume, great songs, and all the great pictures you gave us! You are California King!
– Kristine G, Birthday Party
Rick was the highlight of my husband's surprise birthday party. He was spot-on Elvis! There were 30 guests and he connected with all of them. He stayed afterwards so that everyone could get a picture with him. He was very professional with the contracting process, follow ups prior to the date and during his performance. Book him-you'll love him!
– Marthe T, Birthday Party
Ladies and gentleman! The ULTIMATE ELVIS TRIBUTE SHOW !!! We opted to have a 45 minute deluxe Elvis tribute show with a synchronized light show option during the performance. Very impressive, and met with a standing ovation! When Rick, and his crew got set up they were testing the sound, lights, and all . Rick was singing as he walked the room checking his microphone reception. I had to walk up to him to see if it was really him singing. Man is he good! Definitely close to the genuine article in my book. Many show options to give you the flexibility to arrange exactly what you want, and will work with your budget. Thanks again for a impressive evening!
– Robert H, Casino Night
We all thought his performance was depictive of Elvis in personality. energy, costume, appearance, and his voice was equally impressive. Because he has no pressing engagements to go to immediately afterwards, we had him stay and perform more songs. He was very accommodating and such a delightful addition to our gathering.
– Susi B, Casino Night
We all had a ridiculously good time!! Talked about it all night! And this morning too, when my sister woke me up to relive it all over again! She even pulled out all her old Elvis records! Shes ridiculous! Its all your fault! All shes been talking about is how you sang to her, kissed her, flirted with her, etc. Oh man, it was a very good time and the people in the restaurant were all commenting about you and what a great show you put on! Even the band said something to us when we walked over there to dance afterwards!The performance was much more than I expected. Thank you forever! Margarite Avendano
– Margarite A, Birthday Party
Absolutely wonderful!! We have had performers come in the past and he was the best by far. He was easy to work with and was willing to do almost anything we asked. Our party was a birthday party for 6 year old twins and he was wonderful with everyone from them up to their grandparents. Even some of the other kids who didn't know who Elvis was truly enjoyed the show. His costume was impeccable and his appearance completely had you believing it was Elvis. He had a wonderful personality and put everyone at ease. Even our photo shy uncle wanted his picture with him! I would hire him again in a minute.
– Michelle T, Birthday Party
The performance was fantastic for my group and the 100 plus spectators around the park who witnessed it as well! The highlight of the performance I have to say is when he sang, YOU LOST THAT LOVING FEELING. People were cheering everywhere!! Afterwards 10 people from other picnics at various times in the day asked me for his contact information, and said he was amazing!! Rick Torres is the best!!
– Denise V, Birthday Party
Your Service is right on! We had an awesome time! But we all agreed, that the pictures you have on the website dont do Rick justice, in person was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay hotter ah, better!!! LOL Thank you for making this such a memorable experience. The singing, the suit, everything was exactly what we wanted. We will definitely use your services again whenever we feel the need for Elvis! The Girls at RFI
– Sara O, Birthday Party
Myself, my family and all the girls at the bridal shower were shocked and very excited to have Elvis come to the party. What a surprise for the bride to be. Everyone enjoyed his performance and were having a lot of fun. He was so kind to everyone letting them take picture after picture which are all a scream. Thanks again Rick, you were a total hit.
– Joyce C, Wedding Shower
A fantastic Entertainer! This is our third time using Ricks services, and we will be hiring him for future events!
– Mary H, July 4th Party
It was a very special anniversary Day! Funny ceremony created and performed by Rick Torres was filled with facts about the two guest of honor making it even more special!!
– Diane L, Anniversary Party
On Time,and on his game! Everyone was impressed with the performance!!! The best of any Elvis Impersonator I researched prior to booking him.
– Sandra F, Birthday Party
Hi Rick You were amazing!The Ultimate Elvis Tribute was a great addition to our relay for life. You had hundreds of women falling in love with you! I had one of the ladies, who was too nervous to come up for a scarf, tell me later that when I dragged her across the track to your arms it was one of the highlights of her life. She is 80 years old. We will definitely use you in future events and refer anyone looking for Elvis to you. Thanks for your support of our cause and your fabulous show. Mary Ellen Forrest Co Chair, Relay For Life Pacifica
– Mary Ellen F, Fundraiser
We all love the performance and Rick was all I expected. He wore the aqua blue vine suit to the performance which was just made in time for our appearance. During the 4 song performance, My wife got a beautiful scarf and Gold Elvis Glasses as keepsakes. The Elvis quickie services is fantastic and we are considering it for another show in San Jose.
– Chris H, Birthday Party
It was a surprise that nobody will forget. He is the Best Elvis!!! I have seen Elvis impersonators from Reno, S. Lake Tahoe, and one here in Sacramento, Rick Torres was on the voice, the attitude, the moves, and the overall performance was, to put it in one word, ELVIS! We are so glad we hired him! If you are looking for the best Elvis dont settle for less! Rick Torres you are the King man! Thanks you so much!
– Jenuahi H, Wedding Reception

– Renee C, Celebration
Throughout the day and evening a large amount of the 500 plus people who attended our Hot August Nights in Sunnyvale celebration said that Rick Torres was the most realistic Elvis they ever saw. He is an incredible entertainer! The Mayor attended the performance as well and personally walked over to him to discuss with him doing a performance at a upcoming event he is hosting. Two unbelievable performances today!!
– Vince P, Hot August Nights
There was lots of Strangers.Her friends,my friends, her family, my family,college buddies on both sides etc.People sat with the people they knew.There wasent any interaction between groups.It was sort of like different parties going on under the same roof. You came, that all ended. Everybody got up together,and got excited and talked to strangers. Nobody sat for the rest of the night.After you left people stayed on the dance floor. While the DJ stopped playing music,5 hours.You were great with Mattie,and all the folks who took pictures with you.You went beyond the call of duty!
– Kevin O, Wedding Reception
On Behalf of the staff and the residence at The Villa Serena, we would like to express the sincere thanks to Elvis impersonator Rick Torres. He was so charming, humble, very talented, and also very sexy and flirtatiously fun! Doing what he does seems to come very naturally and convincing as well. Everyone was asking when he might come back again.
– Lilly G, Festival
Everyone Loved the Performance and he was a hit with all the residence who attended. His suit and look was very authentic. You could tell it was very professional Thanks again for a great job.
– Rick A, Elvis Celebration
The Reviews were very favorable. We will be using the services of Bay areas number 1 Elvis Impersonator Rick Torres at future events guaranteed. We will also be passing on his information to all our affiliates to consider for their events. Thanks for a great afternoon!
– Amy F, Corporate Function
My Mother was memorized!!! For all you who read this, there is no way there is any Elvis impersonator around who can beat this service or magnitude that Rick puts into his performance! Fantastic moves with high kicks, beautiful voice oh my god dont get me started on that, and just a very modest and sincere person. It was the best, and I know my mother will cherish the memories forever.
– Mary R, Birthday Party
WOW! and WOW some more! I have used Rick Torres for my wedding, a karaoke party, and my 10 year reunion for D.J. services. I have always been interested in having him do an Elvis appearance someday. I could not believe how talented he is. He also gets totally in character, even when speaking to me. He really is number one for all the reasons I have read in his very impressive list of Testimonials..Thanks again King! We will see you again soon!
– Allison O, Private Party
My cousin has been to Graceland a few times during Elvis week and he said Rick was one of the best he has seen. Rick modestly replied, well thank you, I do the best I can. His best was more than good enough!! He belted out 4 of my mothers favorite songs and really made her day. Thank you Rick, I hope we will see you again when your performing in the city.
– Sophia R, Bachelorette Party
I would literally look for reasons to throw parties just to treat my friends again to another amazing performance by Bay areas best Elvis Rick Torres! I would have him perform in a different suit and perform different songs so it would be a new performance every time. We are now planning a benefit concert on my property where we will have him do his Ultimate Elvis Tribute service. Should be a sight to see, and I can wait. See you in a few months King!
– -Sheryll M, Community Celebration,
I had to call Rick after the performance to ask him if most of the senior events he does starts with the attendees being bothered by the sound, and how in the heck did he turn all those frowns into smiles so quickly during the performance. He said, it dosent happen often,but all you have to do is really love everyone in the room and mean it. They will respond to that. I have to say I have never seen anyone do a spin like that. Rick is very exceptional entertainer, and we loved him back
– Candace B, Community Event
A good friend hire Rick to perform for her mothers birthday. I wanted to see him perform and she told me the performance he did for my mom or 1 song of it is actually on MySpace just go to Google an put in MySpace Elvis at a Birthday Party in Modesto California and look for MySpace videos Ricks Videos. I was sold, and he was even better in person. We had a last minute time chance and Rick was very cool about it. Cool all around!! Hire this one ladies.
– Angeli T, Birthday Party
We loved the appearance! "The Elvs quickie" was fun! LOL! Thats a great name for a singing telegram.
– Tomomi I, Wedding Reception
Rick was totally awesome! Everyone loved him! Even the younger crowd who are into hip-hop & par music loved Rick. My guest of honor (my sister the birthday girl who turned 50) was totally thrilled with Rick and his music. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone for their event. And I would certainly hire him again for my next event! Thank you and Rick for making my party a total sucess! Terrie Martinez
– Terrie M, 50th Birthday Party
Without a doubt from the 150 plus people at Saturdays big 50 party for my sister, the highlight of the evening was the performance provided by Rick Torres of King Creole Entertainment!! With everyone surrounding him, he had about a 5x5 area for his performance and exploded like a white fringed firecracker with spins, kicks, dips and a sexy smile. My sister along with all the other gals were in love. His voice is really something to hear in person. I would suggest to pick Unchained Melody. It was my fave, and made me cry
– Leslie P, Birthday Party
Last minute booking although I have use Rick Torres for other events. I sincerely appreciate him putting something special together at short notice and making the skate party even more special. Thank you again, we will be in touch for something in December
– Dennis S, Birthday Party
The 50 year Reunion of Mountain View High School Class of 1959 wishes to express the most sincere thanks for the fantastic performance by Elvis aka Rick Torres. It was a great step into the past from an Entertainer we grew up with ,and Rick was the highlight of the evening!!
– Fidel L, Class Reunion
It was very cold outside show! Windy and cold! Rick performed on the outside deck like it was the a perfect summer evening. Not fazed by the fact that most of the group was blue lipped! LOL! He is a perfect example of the phrase, THE SHOW MUST GO ON! People started interacting with him and dancing around, and then we started feeling the summer too! Superb Performance!
– Uschi J, Private Party
We could not be more please. This was a second performance we used Elvis impersonator Rick Torres of King Creole Entertainment. Both previous shows have been day time performances. We are now looking to do an evening performance to book his ultimate Elvis Tribute performance with a spotlight and the choreographed light show he has available. Looks cool on his site. Cant wait to see in person!
– Renee C, Birthday Party
GREAT! SHOW! When Elvis performed at our party, the Hawaiian dance group we hired said, O my God that is Rick Torres! We have seen him perform before! You got the Best Elvis around!! Can we perform with him during a song? My husband was thrilled when you said yes and performed Rock a hula and Blue Hawaii with the Background Hawaiian dancers, as much as they were. This was unexpected as the Hawaiian dancers were a bit early and overlapped Ricks appearance. A Day to Remember!
– Hellen L, Birthday Party
Sorry E about all the confusion, we appreciate your going with the flow with all our last minute request. The appearance was so much fun and entertaining for all the guest. fantastic voice! And everyone just though you really looked the part! It is my pleasure to send this feedback reply.
– Robert B, Birthday Party
Rick was so much fun. He made our event more successful and even acted as one of the judges for the contest. Thank you again for a great performance.
– Lindsey V, Club Event
He was on the dot! Arrived at he venue on time. He did make follow up calls and called me several times to see to it that everything is ok as scheduled. Very professional and accomodating to our guest. He did an excellent performance to the satisfaction of the celebrant and all my guests.
– Roberto B, Birthday Party
I had no idea how to surprise someone in a crowded restaurant but King Creole did. Everyone at the party talked the entire time how terrific the appearance aka The Elvis Quickie was. Not to mention over and over again how impressive Elvis Impersonator Rick Torres was and is. We had quite a few people at the restaurant ask for contact information after they left. At least 10 so he should be getting some calls.
– Phil C, Retirement Party
Rick is the Number 1 Elvis! We would have had him perform all night if we could. Everyone loved his energetic performance. Our Halloween party was transformed by his performance, and it went high gear from that point. Very handsome guy, and all the girls agreed he was very Elvis. He has those eyes goin on. We could have not done better by our decision to use him.
– Mike And Suzy D, Halloween Party
I had a few minutes to send this before work, and I dident want to wait to long to submit this so here it goes! All The Testimonials about this entertainer are 100 percent! We had a spotlight performance at our wedding and decided on 1956 Rock a Billy gold Lame which under that spotlight was very cool and sparkly! Rick Torres was dynamic! Many guest were just beside themselves during and after the performance. Everyone loved it! It was a fantastic addition to kick off the evening to come. Hire the best! Hire Rick Torres!
– Karen E, Wedding Reception
We had the King Creole Rick Torres show up in the black leather 1968 comeback suit and perform songs Elvis performed at that 68 show. Heartbreak hotel, Hound Dog, all Shook, cant help falling in love, and Love me tender, My mother who is a E fan to put it lightly said it was like watching the 68 comeback concert in 3D! Very fun, also entertaining.
