We had Hugo perform at a "Happy Birthday Elvis" luncheon. He thoroughly entertained the audience. He walked the crowd and interacted with the audience, giving a personal touch. Job well done!
Hugo did a wonderful Elvis set for my daughters birthday. Everyone absolutely loved him. He was a great entertainer and a sweetheart with all the kids. If you need an Elvis I would book him immediately! He is so talented!!!
Hugo was my entertainment at my Red Hat Spring Fling Party yesterday. And did he ever entertain! Most of the ladies (not me his senior stalker of course) had not seen him before and were just gaga over him... Clapping, snapping, foot stomping and even stuffing money in his jacket pockets! It was an unbelievable blast! Next year he will be such a superstar I probably wont be able to afford him😯
You can really tell that Hugo loves what he does. Not only does he sound like Elvis (sometimes even better) but he has all the right moves too! It was a pleasure to have him entertain at our party.
Went to dinner at LaVilla with my daughter and granddaughter last night to see Hugo. Limited in space without a stage or a large area to work with he was still absolutely electric. Did a real mix of tunes incorporating more ballads this time than usual. This allowed him a little more movement to circulate around the restaurant with just his guitar. No matter which type of song he did it was an audience pleaser for a really mixed crowd of ages(hey my table alone was three generations).Finished his scheduled one hour show but everyone was so crazy about him that the owner not only hired him for an additional hour but for two upcoming dates. This young man is absolutely an upcoming superstar.Check out his FB for future appearances....better yet hire him for one....I already did!!
Very good show people started dancing. Very punctual. Will call him for future events thanks Hugo.
Fourth time I have enjoyed the talents of this young man...I've become a senior citizen groupie!!! Not only very talented but you can feel the genuine care he has for his audience.
Problem is the audience when thinking of an Elvis entertainer expects the Vegasy glitzy jumpsuits associated with Elvis. But those are impersonators and Hugo is not. He is a tribute artist taking his audience to the earlier years of Elvis including some gospel and rockabilly tunes. Of course he can also Shake It Up with tunes like Jailhouse Rock.
My best review is he always makes me happy😀
Book him for your next event....you won't be sorry
Hugo's Elvis performed at my senior center today and the ladies cannot stop talking about it, and have already asked me to book him again! He is extremely talented and has so much charm! He sings all of Elvis's great hits and interacts with the crowd! Book him, you will not be disappointed!
I cannot say enough about Hugo. Wonderful performer.exremely talented as well as a considerate and thought ful young man. He went out of his way to work with my student who is playing Elvis in our school play.
