Greg was awesome and a consummate professional!

I hired Greg from Chicago to pay a visit to my brother's b-day party in W. Bloomfield that we couldn't attend. The prearrangements where easy, he showed up on time. The family said he was funny and it was a great time. He gave me a follow up call after he left to let me know how it went.

Greg was great!

Outstanding JOB!!! Hire him for YOUR corporate events!!!

We hired Greg, who was accompanied by his graceful assistant, Janice, for our corporate Christmas party at the TPC on 12/9/11. He did an outstanding show with an excellent long show - with a short intermission - and a second Elvis costume as well.

He interfaced extremely well with all of our people and invited the crowd to get up, dance and even sing along at times. This is my second event that I hired him for and the first was a birthday party. He just does an outstanding job and his personality is just as great after the show too. He posed for pictures with our guest and was kind and generous at all times.

Review by Michelle F.

Greg and his assistant Janice were wonderful. Very personable and professional. They worked with us on everything....Greg was very knowledgeable on Elvis facts and worked that into his act. He also knows how to read the guests and acts accordingly..I had a great time. I will recommend Greg for other events to all my friends and family. I found out he also is an ordained minister and people can have An Elvis style wedding right here in Michigan..

Classic songs like "Burning Love," "My Way," and "Suspicious Minds" are among the many favorites that make up this fun, fast paced, family friendly depiction of Elvis in the '70's at the peak of his career.
