In the last several years my husband and I have paid to see several other Elvis tribute artists. They were all good, but Matt King is definitely the best. He has the best voice, he's professional, he is such a great entertainer that you feel you are being entertained by Elvis himself. He sung all the songs I requested plus more, he was punctual, he related very well with the audience, even staying longer so people could take pictures with him. He made my 50th wedding anniversary party especially memorable for us. Matt King is a great entertainer.

Matt's performance at my 5th Annual Senior Appreciation Dinner was a smashing success! Over 440 Seniors from western Wayne County were thrilled with his performance. He even took the time to grant photo requests from many of them after the performance. He's one of the best Elvis performers we've ever seen! Hire him and you won't be disappointed!
