I would like to express heart-felt gratitude for the superb Elvis’s Performance you provided for my hospice patient.
Your willingness to work with my budget to provide a lasting memory for my client is both noble and uncommon, and speaks volumes about you as a person.
As you may know, Elvis is my client’s all time favorite artist. Your performance was the dream of a lifetime come true. The quality of the performance was superb; thanks for putting your whole heart into the show. Both the patient and her family were touched and inspired. Erma’s tears of joy spoke volumes to the impact you had on her.
Thank you again for your willingness to help.
Response from Elvis Tribute Shows:
Thank you so much for your kind remarks. I am so happy you , Erma and her family was pleased. Rachel, You are the one with the large heart. Your willingness to book me and pay for the performance for one of your charges also says volumes about your character. Erma is very lucky to have such a caring, Loving caretaker like you. To me, it was precious. I teared up a time or to at her tears of Joy. Thank you again for allowing me to perform for you.
Rick did an excellent job, the event was a success. When you book with Rick "Elvis", book with confidence.
Response from Elvis Tribute Shows:
Hey Steve thanks for the compliment. You were a fun group to perform for and I enjoyed doing it. Especially that poem that it looks like a Miss Nancy wrote and gave me at the show. I've never had a poem written for me before at a show. I was very honored. I'll write it here for your observation: From Miss Nancy:
I'm Glad to say Elvis has re-entered the room
Larger than Life he Looms
Singing the Love Songs he Does so Well
He's definitely a story to tell
Long Black Hair and Shades on his Eyes
Scarf around his neck - No Ties
Making his way thru the Room
To all the Ladies he Croons
For a Treat that can't be Beat
He'll have you Dancing on your Feet
Thank you EL for making your appearance tonight
For these Sore Eyes You're a Wonderful Sight

What to Expect

I've been performing up and down the East Coast and Once in Vegas for 20 years. Retired for three years due to an injury and was Enticed/Begged and Bribed into coming out to perform at a special Birthday Party at the Eagles Nest and the another one two weeks later and I've got the bug back. I have extensive testimonies on my shows at my website which I will provide later...
In the mean time to abide my the rules of Gigmaster. Here are a few I've copied and Pasted:

From The Georges,
We can’t thank you enough for the performance you put on at my Fathers Birthday…It is amazing that we found someone of your talent right here in VA. Beach…My Father just got back from Las, Vegas and actually went to two Elvis shows while he was there…He couldn’t believe that he spent all that money to see Vegas quality Elvis shows after he saw and heard your show he stated that nobody in Vegas put on a better show…My Brother wanted to know where I found that Guy!…We are all still talking about your show and it has been months since you were here….Thank you so much for such great entertainment. I am so glad I ran into your friends from the ski club and they told me about you….Any body reading this….Pay the difference!!! Rick is more than worth what we paid him…My husband was so enthralled he gave Rick an additional $100.00 tip…Now That’s saying something!!!!

I have to tell you that you delivered much more than you promised. As you were aware, we wanted to make the surprise party for my mother -in-law something special for her. You played a big part in making that happen… The party was a 100% success. We’ve had feed back from most of the people who attended and everyone has complemented you’re performance. You have the Look and sound down and working with you was a pleasure. I would recommend you to anyone who would like to have Elvis as a guest to their function. Thank you so much for helping us create the special memories my wife and I wanted for my mother-in-law. We shopped a lot of Elvis’ websites, Went on Gig masters and found a lot of impersonators that were a lot cheaper than Rick’s price…However none of them looked as much like Elvis as Rick did so we came back to him and paid the full price…WOW, Are we glad we did…Rick was worth the difference and then some. As Rick told us…If you got into an accident and killed a child on the road…Would you open the phone book and find the cheapest lawyer to represent you? OR… Would you hire the best you could find at what ever price he asked…Well, Rick was and proved to be the best and we are glad we hired him above all the others….
Keep Knocking their Socks off Rick and Thanks again …
From Don and Annette Mills
Thank you for your spectacular performance at Barrier Island Station Resort in Duck, NC. It was an amazing performance that all of the owners, guests and children enjoyed! You are the consummate showman performing in the early evening summer heat in your full Vegas Style suit! The interaction with the audience clearly brought us all back in time, where we were lost in the moment believing we were actually seeing Elvis perform. People were talking about this show for days afterward and how much they enjoyed it. The show was attended by possibly the largest crowd of owners and guests the resort has seen for any one show in years. It was truly a spectacular end to all of our 4th of July celebration activities.

To whom ever wants a great Elvis Show!!!!
Rick performed for my mother's 90th birthday party and brought the house down. In an elaborate costume, he traveled the room, stopping from time to time to kneel in front the older ladies as he sang into their eyes and presented them with Elvis scarves. From the look on their faces I believe they all felt many decades younger. They were not the only ones who were impressed. Wait staff from the next room slipped in to enjoy the show as did many other residents of the retirement center. Even now, 6 months later, people are talking about the wonderful time they had at mother's party and what a treat the
entertainment was. I highly recommend Rick Spruill if you are looking for an Elvis
impressionist. He was worth every penny.
Thank you for bringing your Vegas Style Elvis Show to the Eagles Nest. We were very pleased with the crowd you were able to bring in that evening and it was great way to introduce our newly expanded venue to a ton of new faces. Our food sales and bar sales doubled from a normal Thursday night. We would welcome you back and look forward to the next Elvis Show at the Nest!

Friday night, October 26th, Elvis was in “the house”! We had a rocking good time as the Elvis Tribute highlighted our evening for the 2015 IAAP Professional Development Seminar Open House! The songs were awesome and I especially appreciated that you sang “Hound Dog” just for me! You are a true entertainer and we all enjoyed your performance! The party almost died when Elvis “left the building”! Thanks for a great show!
Thank you so much for the fantastic show you performed for my parent’s SURPRISE 50th Wedding Anniversary party!! The show was fantastic and the surprise wedding, complete with vows, was just what we were hoping it would be. As you know, my mother’s dream was to have her vows renewed by Elvis-it was perfect. I would recommend your show to anyone who is looking for a top notch, professional, and energetic performance. Thanks so much for travelling 7 hours to perform for us…you were the best!
If anyone that you know has a special occasion coming up and would like a Elvis entertainer, call Rick Spruill , he does an awesome job!!!!! If interested message me and I will give you his number. You will have a great time!!!!
