ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!

Hired Ralph at the last minute as a surprise performer for one of my favorite customer and he stepped up to the plate and hit a home run! He was very professional and showed up early and ready to go. He even played past over his time agreed to give and sign autographs pics and take pics with other customers. He even gave the Birthday girl a teddy bear. Will certainly recommend and use his services again!

Awesome!!!!!

Ralph Elizondo "Elvis" did such a great job performing at my mother's 80th birthday party. I heard from several of the guest that "he was awesome", " He is a better performer than the one at the Casino in Louisiana". I would not hesitate to hire him again. Thank you, thank you very much.

Ralph Elizondo, The Houston Elvis in one word? FABULOUS!

I hired Mr. Elizondo to perform at a private function recently. I noticed that when I arrived, he was dressed and ready to perform! We asked him to begin at a specific time, and when the clock stuck, he was “on”; no questions asked.
I never mentioned this to Ralph, but I had invited several Elvis fans to this event. When the party was over, every Elvis fan that I know of complimented “The Houston Elvis” performance.
For example, one 84 yr. old gentleman mentioned, “That Houston Elvis, definitely has taken time and effort to be sure that he not only sounds like The King himself, but he has practiced and studied the actual moves of the real Elvis to perfection!”
A woman told me that she liked how Elvis came down from the stage and interacted with the audience. & "He looked sooo Handsome!" She added.
These are all nice things, but what I, personally, liked best, was that Ralph was friendly, and was willing to work within my budget.
The Houston Elvis, Ralph Elizondo is #1 in my opinion. I’d highly recommend The Houston Elvis.

Review by Brenda M.

I would like everyone to know the real Ralph, He is not only a incredible entertainer but a awesome person. His performances are nothing compared to his heart and the time he puts into helping others. We have hired Ralph over a dozen times and each time the shows are different and truely entertaining. I have heard other Elvis Impersonators and Ralph lives up to his #1 Houston Elvis Status. You can see the passion he has for the real Elvis in his performances this is not just a job to Ralph he puts his heart into every performance. The fundraisers he has done for our children will never be forgotten. If you want a performance that your guest will always remember and want more each time you see him Ralph Elizondo should be your first choice. The Community & Children's Impact Center thanks Ralph for all the love you have shown our children & Community. Thanks so much Brenda Myers President of the C.C.I.C.

ELVIS was definitely in the house !

we were all surprised when Elvis showed up at the birthday party unannounced/ We had a private area of the restaurant set aside and it quickly became the hit of our party and then others tried to get in on it and take pictures etc. The singing and show turned out so well that many guest insisted he stay over and do other favorite songs and photo's that went viral on facebook before the night was over/ Many guest already insisted that he return again next year for the same event. We had a blast and the thumbs up text and emails are still coming in/
It was a night to remember and will be for some time to come

I cannot remember the last time I danced so much! You were an awesome entertainer. Everyone was so impressed! The future bride and groom were so appreciative. They, too, had such great things to say about you. We greatly appreciate you coming all this way to our small town and will pass the word of what a wonderful entertainer you are.

Ralph was responsive and thorough in our communications before the event. The night of our party, he was on time and delivered a fun, energetic, crowd-pleasing Elvis impersonation. Ralph gave it everything he had, and we had a blast. Everyone is still talking about the Elvis sighting! I highly recommend Ralph's services. My daughter has already asked if he can return for her 10th birthday party.

Houston Elvis very professional

After never having done this before it was a pleasure on how easy it was. Ralph was very quick to contact me and set up the event. He was early and came totally prepared. He made a lasting impression on my wife who's birthday it was that he sang at. He came to her work and had the whole place a rockin. He added a few personal touches such as a bithday gift of a teddy bear. Would hire him again in a flash.

I called Houston Elvis on Monday morning and Monday afternoon he was performing for us. It was great. We are a construction company and it was the 20th anniversary of the architect that does a lot of work for us. We wanted to acknowledge his success in a unique way and Houston Elvis was perfect. Everyone enjoyed him. Great job and I'm looking forward to having another occasion where I can use Houston Elvis.

We have seen, attended, and enjoyed Ralph's performances in a large number of events: parties, anniversaries, clubs/restaurants, and concerts. Ralph is ALWAYS professional, energetic, punctual, and ALWAYS highly entertaining. A true devotee to the Elvis art and persona! The variety of his act is amazing - from the popular hits all us boomers know, to the more obscure that "should have made it", to gospel and ballads, to the movie tunes. And the costumes and set up are always in theme.
We highly recommend Ralph for all of your "Elvis" needs.

MD Anderson : Making Cancer History
Houston, TX

We first experienced “Elvis” in 2004 during a surprise performance that had been organized for a patient of MD Anderson. We were so impressed by his talent and his special rapport with the audience that one of our patient representatives asked him to come back and entertain whenever he wanted to. That was over 6 years ago.
During all this time we have developed a special relationship with Ralph and Robin Elizondo. He is one of our faithful volunteers. He comes to entertain the patients and guests at the Rotary House about six times a year.
The Jesse H Jones Rotary House is a hotel owned by MD Anderson Cancer Center. Its clientele is very special. They come from all over the world to be treated at the hospital that is ranked #1 among cancer facilities.
Our “Elvis” is the most generous of men. On St. Valentine’s Day, he presents roses to the patients; Easter means stuffed bunnies; Christmas is special with gift donations. The whole idea is to lift the spirits of patients while they are undergoing treatment. Ralph is wonderful at doing just that. He brings back sweet memories and tugs at their heart strings and they love it.
It is always a joy to see him come through our doors. He makes a difference.
Thank you Ralph, we appreciate you and all you do.
Sincerely,
Elena Cave

I hired Houston Elvis aka Ralph for a 1950's Bday party. Not only was he an awesome "Elvis" - Ralph is truly an amazing individual! Everyone fell in love with him. Several people in attendance had seen other Elvis impersonators before and said he was the best (costume, hair, performance) they had ever seen. He made the party a huge success!

Houston Elvis, Ralph Elizondo

BACKGROUND

Ralph was born and raised in Houston, Texas into a family of professional musicians. His grandfather is a well known conductor/musician, his father a famous trumpet player and his mother a talented vocalist. At the age of seven Ralph started playing the drums. Later he went on to play drums professionally and tour with several well known bands. He also sang back up vocals. In addition, Ralph found out he had a talent for dancing after winning numerous dance contests in his early teen years. While performing as a drummer for an Elvis Tribute Band he found out that he had a talent for impersonating Elvis when the band leader featured Ralph during a local show. Ralph went on to win many local and national contests as an Elvis Tribute Artist and this started his solo career. In August of 2001 the well known “Elvis Entertainers Network” accepted Ralph for membership (a prestigious all Elvis agency in Chicago) endorsed by Graceland. This agency is very selective in the Elvis professionals they represent.
One of the most impressive features of Ralph’s talent is his ability to portray Elvis from the early 1950’s to the early 1970’s.Audiences are impressed with Ralph’s ability to sound, dance and look like Elvis in all the different eras. Most artists are limited in the era they portray. Ralph has an exciting show with a large selection of unique costumes (many from the 32 Elvis movies), an endless repertoire of songs (over 600) and dance moves that always elicit screams from the audience. Numerous media sources have taken note of Ralph. He has been featured on national television shows CNN and Entertainment Tonight. He has also appeared many other times ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Newspapers nationally and locally have also featured articles on Ralph’s show with rave reviews to include; Houston Chronicle, The Star, The Herald, Fredericksburg Free Lance Star, the Associated Press and many others. Ralph has been hired as a professional actor appearing in his own local television show in Houston, and most recently starring in nationally televised commercials for a Las Vegas corporation during the Dallas Mavericks basketball game. Internationally, Scotland fans now know Ralph because he was featured in a 30 minute radio show live from Graceland. He impressed the audience singing acapella.
Ralph is a full time professional Elvis Tribute Artist that feels blessed to be following his dream of being an entertainer.

Testimonials

Elvis" Ralph was splendid! He's very talented and easy to work with! We have used him for several different types of events and he's been a hit each time! We highly recommend him!

– Maria E.

Ralph (Houston Elvis) was amazing! As his demo videos illustrate he is very charismatic, and has the singing voice and dancing talent to really WOW the crowd. Ralph captivated the attention of the kids for nearly an hour straight (that is impressive because a different local animated children's musician could not hold this same group of kids' attention for 5 minutes at another event a few weeks earlier.) In addition to the kids loving Ralph, the adults also loved his Elvis music. I highly recommend Ralph. He was great on the business end too and brought everything he needed. did not miss a beat.

– Jeff S.

Ralph Elizondo was Awesome and very professional. We as a group at MedCare wanted to give my boss a suprise by having an Elvis impersonator come and perform for her birthday. All of us had a great time and Mr. Elizondo was very professional and has an excellent voice. Thanks for the great performance.

– Bertha S.

What makes Ralph stands out the most is his sincerity. He is also personal, hard-working, & giving. He goes the extra mile to do whatever it takes to make his customers happy. He truly loves what he does. You can see & hear it in his voice. He is the perfect Elvis impersonator. Ralph's appearance at my mom's 70th party made the evening so special & memorable. We would definitely use his service again.

– Christie D.

We hired Houston Elvis for a wedding reception at the Scared Spur Ranch. Ralph is the BEST hands down. This man will blow you away! He is very personable, professional, and extremely talented. I could not find one thing wrong with him even if I tried. He sounds and looks the part. I asked him to sing a song halfway through the performance and I really thought I was talking to Elvis, it was very cool! He does take on a whole other being. His videos do not do this man's beautiful voice, face and persona justice. We kept him for 3 hours. He went from rinestones, Army, and Leather Elvis for us and not a single person, mostly 20-30 year old, was not enjoying it. Thank You!

– Richard K.

AWESOME! Ralph exceeded all expectations and then some. He played to the group, engaged his audience, put on a fantastic show, was professional, polite and accomadating. We were a small group and he made it feel like we were all at Caesar's Palace in Vegas seeing the real Elvis! I would have no problems recommending him to anyone for any function! He made my party an unforgettable experience for my friends and I look forward to having him perform again at other functions, THANK YOU, and GREAT JOB! Great to work with!

– Marcelle B.

Ralph was just as pleasant and accommodating as he was when I initially contacted him. He made himself available to hear a lot of the details leading up to our annual employee recognition event. He did everything that he committed to doing with such enthusiasm! He and his wife Robin reviewed our special request and made our function a HUGE Success! Immediately following our event he was asked to perform for our corporate event a week later where the crowd is expected to be over 300 +. He is truly talented and did an outstanding job customizing his performance around our theme while staying focused on the audience and engaging them in his performance. I received NUMEROUS compliments about that event being the “BEST EVER”…I’m not sure how I will top this event next year!

– Laura R.

"One of the best Elvis Impersonators in the world, I've ever seen. I'm a big fan of Ralph's. I would like to build an entire show around him I especially love Ralph's versatility, that's hard to find."

– Dean Scott ( The Sands from Las Vegas)

As a US Marine Corps Wife, it is hard to find services in the "civilian world" that are accomodating to our needs. Ralph worked with me and made me feel like he was working with me personally on a one on one basis. Even though I booked him months in advance, he checked in on a regular basis and answered all my phone calls when I had concerns. The party was a surprise and stayed so til the end. He was well worth the wait and everyone enjoyed him. Several of the guest have seen Elvis on several occasions and told me throughout the evening that Ralph put on just about as good a show as the original he portrays. Thank you.

– Amanda S.

Ralph Elizondo is the consummate professional. He arrived early to set-up for his performance. His costumes were elegant and varied. His performance was right on target and if we didn’t know better we would have thought the real “Elvis” had just performed for our party. In addition, Ralph’s love for Elvis’ music and his knowledge of the “King” was exceptional. The greatest compliment that I can pay Ralph is that he has a heart for people and uses his talent to minister to people every where. My Mother was thrilled that Ralph made her birthday extra special and one to remember.

– Phyllis H.

"Not only did Ralph Elizondo bring the house down, he closed it down also. Mr. Elizondo was good enought to extend his playing time and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Everyone - the invited, the non-invited restaurant customers, the restaurant staff - had a great time. We will definitely use him at least once a year."

– Orlando B.

"We were very impressed. Everyone from the kids, to the parents had thier jaws dropped to the floor. The boys were in a state of awe at first. Speechless, actually then they came out of their state of shock and danced, sang and had a great time. He really put everyone at ease and got the crowd going. Ralph was fantastic. He even did a few numbers and honored my dad and his service to our counrty. Ralph had several of the adults up and dancing and had everyone clapping. One of our guests was just blown away by the fact that "Elvis" was really in the building. We will definately hire Ralph again in the future. We had the times of our lives and we will remember his performance and overall willingness to make our son's birhday and our family celebration of life after cancer a wonderful, wonderful experience!"
