Elvis at Seneca Niagara Casino

A true professional! It was a pleasure to work with Rob as Elvis at Seneca Niagara Casino at their Hollywood New Years Eve Event!
Rob really captures the costuming, persona and charisma of The King of Rock. The guests enjoyed him greatly and he is excellent in working with the crowd. He took photos all evening and really goes above and beyond to connect with each person. The client was THRILLED and I look forward to future events with this talented performer.

Bob James was a terrific entertainer, with the style and Charisma of "Elvis" himself.. His costume and presentation was Fabulous, but more important he was the Nicest guy to work with.. the guests all ended up having crushes on him, as if they were touched by he great Elvis, saving his momentos of Teddy bears, and scarfs., forever. He made the party such a blast. I recommend him with Five Stars!!!

– Ellen H.

Our party was a success due to Bob's entertainment. All guests at our party still talk about it and watch the videos over and over. I would be a reference for Bob anytime!

– Steven S.

From my first phone conversation with Bob, I could tell Bob was a professional and more so, a gentleman. He made our 50th Surprise birthday party for a friend an over-the-top experience for everyone. His appearance, his talent and his showmanship was unsurpassed. In looking to future community fund raisers, Bob would be my first choice for entertainment. Thank you for your recommendation and leading me to Mr. Bob James.

– Paulette Vita

If you're looking for Elvis, here he is. Bob was great. Everyone loved, loved, loved his performance. They couldn't stop talking about him even after he was long gone. He was better than I expected. He really did look and sound like Elvis. Bob was extremely professional, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him. I wish I was having another party so I could have him back. Thank you for a wonderful and a very memorable performance.

– Kristen R.

Bob James was perfect. Accomodating, talented and a lot of fun. He had a great voice, personality and a super entertainer. Even those who don't like "Elvis" loved him. My sister was trilled and so tickled with Bob James. He made her 50th Birthday Party a smashing hit. Thank you so much and I've already recommended him to others as well as your site.

– Melody Cass

Totally awesome, more than I could have hoped for. My ten year old son will remember this "Elvis" for the rest of his life. Bob catered to the class and every stray teacher that came our way. He sang, danced, signed autographs and posed for pictures. It was such an amazing day for my son. We can't wait for him to come to a show near us, we will be buying the first tickets!!

– Mellisa I.
