Rob Ely IS the BEST!!!

And...speaking as an authority (I went to Humes High School in Memphis, hung out with Elvis, played touch football with Elvis and was his neighbor) I can tell you Rob is as good as it gets.

I own the Groveland Hotel in Groveland, CA, near Yosemite National Park. Each summer we have primarily tribute concerts in our courtyard, with our Elvis show (Rob Ely) closing the season in September. In January, Elvis and I celebrate our birthdays 8 and 16 January) with a cake and Rob Ely.

Rob has all the wonderful traits of Elvis - incredibly talented, sweet, thoughtful, very appreciative of his audiences and absolutely doing his best to please, while doing something he absolutely loves!

And then....does he have the moves!!!!! Just like Elvis, Rob can go from that black leather, sexy, hip-shaking devil, to the most angelic Love Me Tender and his gospel songs. His voice range is amazing!

He even shops at Lansky's on Beale Street and the Peabody Hotel, in Memphis - just like Elvis.

If it's Elvis, you're looking for, Rob Ely is your guy! I've heard a lot of 'Elvises' and NONE comes close.

Rob Ely is the most amazing Elvis!! He, by far, exceeded our expectations to the sheer delight of everyone at our party. With his fantastic voice, easy on the eyes appearance and incredible personality we had a great time being transformed back to the 50s. I highly recommend him for any event where "rockin' and rollin'" is a must and look forward to seeing him again at another one of our future events. Lock up your little girls and put him on your payroll, this prompt, professional and very talented fella certainly won't disappoint!

"Rob's got The Whole Package! He's phoenomenol!"
- Bethany Crouch, Fox40 News

"Rob's impersonation of Elvis was outstanding."
-Don Thomas, Merced County Times

Rob Ely IS the right choice for your Bay Area and CA Elvis Impersonator! Rob has 20 years of performing experience and has done well over 1000 events from Private parties to Large Showrooms! With A VERY CLOSE resemblance to Elvis, The natural Elvis-like charisma and charm, the signature moves and the powerful yet soft voice of the King through the years and the expensive costumes, from the 50's to the 70's, Rob Ely will surely please you at your event as THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL!! Rob is a very accomplished vocalist and is the real deal. He puts it all out there, just as Elvis did, polished and powerful, and is A definite crowd pleaser! Rob is a very strong stage performer who will do all the moves, songs and mannerisms of Elvis to make the ladies swoon and the Guys dance and sing right along with them. An entertainment veteran in his own right,as well as an Elvis Impersonator veteran, Rob knows how to command an audience and work a crowd to make sure all in attendance are thoroughly entertained, at the end of the show. Whether its walking around shaking hands, dazzling the crowd with his high energy Elvis stage moves, "Wowing" you with his dynamic voice, passing out scarves, serenading the guest of honor and other attendees, or taking pics after the show, Rob will leave you spellbound! Comments regularly heard at the end of Rob's shows are, "WOW!" "Amazing!" "You are an inspiration!" and "You're the BEST we've seen", You're voice is spot on Elvis" Just to quote a few. Past performances and clients include: BMW, AT&T Park, Holland America Cruise Lines, Black Oak Casino, Horizon Casino Lake Tahoe, Mardi Gras Casino, L.V, AIG Valic, Covad Communications San Jose Museum of Art, Black Hawk Auto Museum, 100's of Private parties and events and the list goes on and on! Rob has also placed in the top 3 out of several Professional Elvis Tribute Artist contests in Vegas and Tahoe as well.He has sold out Theatres and Corp. events but also loves the quaint house party or anywhere you need an Elvis; no event is too large or too small. PERFORMANCES AVAILABLE FROM A ONE MAN TRACK SHOW, OR A FULL BAND, Rob does it all!

*On A Sidenote Rob Also performs as Buddy Holly, Tim McGraw and does a 50's Rock n Roll Review/Sock Hop Style show!! You can add Buddy Holly with Elvis to create a one of a kind dynamic DOUBLE 50'S TRIBUTE SHOW, or you can also book "Buddy" alone! Inquire for more details!

Testimonials

"Rob's got the whole package!" "He's Phoenomenol!"

– Bethany Crouch

Rob Ely was beyond my wildest wishes for this event. He was incredible!! Great stage presence, great costumes, great value, fantastic singing, worked the crowd, he was very personable - giving the guest of honor special attention, etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob to anyone and am thrilled that he was the one we chose. I could not have been happier with his performance. Thank you! Laura Carlos

-Laura C, 9/16/2009, Retirement Party, Greenbrae, CA

– Laura C./ Marin Gen. Hospital- Marin, CA

Rob Ely was awesome!! He performed for my company holiday party, 420 people attended, and he did a great job. He worked the crowd, got them dancing and looked and sounded awesome. I was actually really suprised at how well he sounded. Rob is no cheesey Elvis impersonator, he is the real deal and I would highly reccommend him!

-Larissa B, 12/11/2009, Christmas Party, Fremont, CA

– Larissa B./ Event Planner-Fremont, CA

This was my first time hiring someone to perform. Rob was the only one that I found that had links to video of his performances. That is how he got the job. Rob was very easy to work with and very accommodating to requests (time changes and song requests). His performance went far beyond expectations. We requested that he perform and extra half hour, which he did. He is an incredible performer, and we (my wife and I, and some of our guest) intend on going to some of his public performances. Some of my neighbors that were not at the party even commented on how good he is. Definitely well worth the cost.

-Michael I, 1/9/2010, Birthday Party (Adults), Half Moon Bay, CA

– Michael I./Private Party-Half Moon Bay, CA

My guests and I really enjoyed Rob's performance. Rob/Elvis was an excellent entertainer and more importantly he is an incredible singer! Rob is very professional and has a nice friendly personality. I've already had two requests from friends for his contact information (which I provided).

-Dan P, 1/23/2010, Birthday Party (Adults), Dublin, CA

– Dan P. -Private Party/ Dublin, CA

Rob Ely was awesome. He was excellent with his communication before the event so I knew and he knew what to expect. His voice is wonderful and his dance moves are second to none! He would be perfect for a small party or huge company convention. Our Sock Hop was a total success and much of this is due to his awesome performance. We're booking him for sure next year!

– Liza C/ B-day Party

Rob Ely as Elvis, was phenomenal. While other impersonators try too hard, he was positively authentic. His voice, movements and physical appearance were incredibly accurate. He brought back Elvis' heart and soul to the stage and transcended the audience. Rob's own warmth and charm was as genuine as the King himself. He made himself accessible to a very appreciative audience. Rob Ely is professional and a gentleman. It was a pleasure to have hired him. I would recommend him to anyone in charge of booking an event...everyone will love you for it. Sharon Ziegenbein

-Sharon Z, 2/12/2010, Valentine's Day Party, Porterville, CA

– Sharon Z./ Activities Director, Porterville CA

Rob did a great job at out facility. His vocals were great and he did an excellent job as "Elvis". His interaction with our residents and family members was very personable. He stayed after for pictures and took time to talk with everyone. We would definitely have him perform at our facility again.

-Rebecca K, 4/7/2010, Nursing Home Event, Vacaville, CA

– Rebecca K./ Nursing Home Activities Dir.

Rob did a fantastic job. His communication leading up to the event was excellent, he arrived well ahead of the scheduled time and was a pleasure to work with. We hired Rob to perform his Elvis impersonation as the culmination of a 4-day rally that we organized for our RV club, and was he ever a hit! The ladies loved him and really got into it. They guys enjoyed him too. This evening will be talked about in the club for years. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again (apparently he does Buddy Holly too).
