Out of this World!!!!

I hired John Jensen for my Sister's 60th Surprise Birthday Party. John and his wife, Karen, were wonderful!!! They totally made me feel at ease when figuring out the details. The performance was "out of this world". John stayed and took pictures after the show much to the delight of my guests! Every single guest commented on how "real" he sounded and the ladies all wanted to take him home. If anyone needs to hire an Elvis Impersonator I would recommend John Jensen. And you get his sweet wife Karen in the package too. These are two good people.

Hail To The King was a HIT!!

We hired John as a surprise for my mother's 70th birthday party.....it was a total hit! My mom was like a school girl again....she had so much fun & "Elvis" made her feel so special. I couldn't have asked for anything better. The songs were great, he sounded great, his costume was great & his performance & interaction with the crowd was great! I just loved everything about the show! John & Karen worked with us on details for the surprise, provided music before the show & were just wonderful people to work with! I highly recommend this show to anyone wanting Elvis!!

He was at our family members birthday party, even though she is deaf she had the greatest time in her life, he was really good I recorded the whole performance on video so she could watch it anytime she wanted. I would recommend him to anyone, I hope I have the pleasure of hiring him for for another birthday. Thank you so much for making her birthday so fun for her and everyone that was there.

Overview

The audience is taken on a historical and musical trip back in time through the life of Elvis Presley. The audience will be amazed, wondering "Is that you singing. They'll believe it when John's up-close and personal with the audience during the show. The charisma, voice and movments of Elvis will leave the audience shouting, laughing and crying at the finale. Pictures and autographs after the show with everyone who wants one, no charge! Conversations and meet and greet humor if required.

Additional Booking Notes

I have aquired the highest quality professional backing tracks from England and each features real musicians performing all the parts minus Elvis. This creates a better experience for the audience. I also use Bose high quality sound equipment and usually have a soundperson to allow me to concentrate on the performance. The costumes I use are hand-made by the same company Elvis used to have his costumes made. They are the highest quality and exact duplicates of the originals. John entertains with the same carisma and energy as Elvis, that is what made Elvis so entertaining. John's natural singing voice is nearly identical to Elvis so Ihe can sing with full power and use all his energy to entertain. If you are looking to be entertained and you love Elvis...you will love "The Hail to the King show."

John Jensen's Hail To The King Show

An entertainer since childhood. He never stopped performing, he bought his first guitar at age 14 and he has been in love with music ever since. John performed with bands as well. In 2001 he started doing the Elvis act as a result of singing to himself while setting-up for a guitar gig with a Doo Wop group. The owner of the Majestic Theater heard John singing All Shook up and booked him to perform as Elvis (with The Memories 8 piece group as a back-up band) for 3 nights at The Majestic Theater in W. Springfield Mass., the rest is history! John has been an Elvis performer for13 years. Thanks to all my fans, you made it possible.

Testimonials

If you're undecided about which Elvis Impersonator to hire- don't be. Hire John Jensen! He's FABULOUS, and does a wonderful job. I hired him for my mother's 1950's Themed 65th Surprise birthday party in Dec. '06 for around 120 people, and I was SO PLEASED! His wife Karen was very accomodating and a pleasure to work with as far as scheduling and setting everything up how we wanted. John was punctual, VERY professional, friendly and looked FANTASTIC! He came dressed and ready to go in a 50's era Elvis style outfit, which looked really cool! His voice was amazing- he sounds so much like Elvis that if you close your eyes, you'd swear "The King" was there in the room with you. His dance moves were EXCELLENT, and he even took the time to get down on one knee and sing personally to several of the older ladies in the room during his performance- they LOVED it! When John sang some of the up tempo songs from Elvis's 50's era, he had everybody on their feet and dancing in the aisles. John does a super job of getting people involved in his show, which I feel is a crucial part of a successful party.

The whole transaction of hiring an entertainer from another country was smooth and easy. John exceeded our expectations!! John and his lovely wife (Manager) were very professional and courtious. John wowed our quests and brought Elvis to our back yard! Everybody was riveted to his tremendous voice and perfect Elvis stature. If Elvis was alive he would be proud!! We all had a great time reliving our young days with John's excellent singing. It was especially great that he involved the quests in his perfect reditions of Elvis's best times. We loved him!! We would recommend John to entertain any time, anywhere, he's great.

– Patricia S

All we can say is "WOW!" What a show, what a voice! Very talented, very professional, very kind, considerate. Can't wait to hear him again!

– Linda B.

Being from Ontario, I was concerned about the five hour drive that John would have to make. I was assured that this was not a problem and he showed up at the exact time he said he would. His performance was great. He interspersed his songs with stories about Elvis which was a nice touch. Everyone liked his voice, his look and his choice of songs, as well as his personality. We all would like to see him perform again. I would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone hosting a party or an event.

4-3-06 - John performed recently at my sister's 50's birthday party. He put on an outstanding performace to our small crowd; everone was totally entertained. His manager showed true professionalism every step of the planning precess. They are a great team. My 73-year old mother mentioned to John that she did not hear her favorite Elvis song. John immediately sang "Love Me Tender" to her acappella after the show. Very sweet. Our guests were very impressed that I found such talent on line! I highly recommend John for YOUR next party. pamjjohn@aol.com

– Pamela J

Excellent. He brought everyone back to 1956, then we were frozen in time. His voice, personality and charm tops the list.

– John C.

I can't say enough! John is nothing more than a "class act." Being quite nervous about hiring someone by website only and not actually seen him perform, I was very, very, pleased! We hired John for a 50's theme Christmas party. No one knew what the entertainment was to be. The minute he surprised the audience by walking in with a black tuxedo suit with a beautiful gold lamet jacket, the group was thrilled! We had people dancing on their chairs. He entertained with so much style, went with the flow, was very professional, was never obnoctious, as some entertainers can be. I watched the crowd and everyone had a smile on their face remembering when!GREAT!

– Margie G.,

Most impressive, he is exceptionally talented and interacted tastfully and professionally with the crowd. I think a few of the older women even felt like he was there just for them. He is a talented entertainer. I'm sure my July 4 event will receive complements for quite some time. Thank you.

– Sean G.

John did a great job for us. We had a 50th annerversity party. We had already booked a band for the event. John was hired to just show up and be ELVIS. He not only did that he also performed 2 songs with the band. It was a huge success. We could not of been happier. If your group needs an ELVIS, John is your man. Very professional,accommodating and talented. John Jenson made our event a success.

Influences & Inspiration

Elvis has been an influence in my life since the first television program I watched with my mom as a young child. My first favorite song was Hound Dog. I have had many other influences in my musical career but Elvis is still "The King" to me. I have gained a greater respect for his life and musical career after being a tribute artist and getting a professional perspective into the carisma and musical talent Elvis possessed.
