He’s the best !!!!
Just returned from a fabulous show. Wonderful singing voice. Very personable. Stayed after the show to poise for pictures with the concert goers.
Rob was an amazing performer, and was so nice to all my guests. he entertained my mother and father for their 40th wedding anniversary. He arrived promptly, and everyone enjoyed the show. He took a ton of pictures with all my guests. Overall I was so pleased with his appearance, attitude, and HE CAN SING! THANK YOU SO MUCH ROB FOR MAKING THE DAY SO WONDERFUL!!!
We booked Rob Ely as Elvis impersonator for our Vegas-themed party...he was perfection! The booking was easy and all our guests were so impressed. If you need an 'Elvis', call him first! We'd book him again in a heartbeat.
Response from Bay Area Elvis Impersonator -Rob Ely:
Thank you Cyndi!! You all were a blast! I'm glad you enjoyed the show!! Hope to perform for you guys again in the future!
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.
Response from Bay Area Elvis Impersonator -Rob Ely:

I THREW MYSELF A BIG BIRTHDAY PARTY, MY 80th, MY CHILDREN SUPRISED ME WITH ROB AS ENTERTAINMENT OF THE DAY. I HAVE BEEN AN ELVIS FAN FOREVER, AND EVEN GOT TO SEE HIM IN PERSON, AND I TELL YOU ROB WAS NEARLY PERFECTION PORTRAYING ELVIS. NO CHEESY STUFF, JUST PURE ELVIS. HE HAS ALL THE RIGHT MOVES DOWN PAT. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE. NOT ONLY DID I HAVE A BALL, BUT ALL MY GUESTS WERE CLAPPING THEIR HANDS, LAUGHING , TAKING PICTURES, ETC. ROB WAS SO GRACIOUS TO EVERYONE, EVEN THE GUYS. OF COURSE HE HAD ALL THE WOMEN SWOONING. GOOD GOING, ROB, YOU ARE BEING TRUE TO ELVIS IN YOUR PERFORMANCE. WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ONE AND ALL. K.CABASSI
My five year old is a huge Elvis fan. Rob made his birthday party one to never forget. Rob is a true tribute artist, he did a fantastic job as Elvis. Rob brought to the party Elvis' signature moves as well as a strong singing voice that wow'd our group. He was very easy to work with in planning this event. We will definitely book him again as well as refer him to all our friends. Thanks Rob!
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!
