We hired Ralph to perform at our hotel’s grand reopening. It was Luau themed and thought it would be great to have Elvis come by. Ralph had a variety of costumes to pick from but, we let him pick what he thought would be great. His performance was amazing and he really worked the room. I cannot praise him enough for how great he was.
Ralph well exceeded my expectation. He made that retirement party an unforgettable experience. He aroused the crowd with his performance as he was spectacular. Not to say the least about his attitude. He was extremely polite, kind and a total gentleman when anyone would ask for pictures. The retiree, a huge Elvis fan, was surprised and thrilled as she danced with him. The experience was a huge highlight. Ralph deserves a perfect 10. THE BEST IMPERSONATOR I'VE EVER SEEN!!!!
Ralph was the biggest hit we've ever had at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles in Crystal Beach. He drew a SRO crowd that enabled us to surpass our fundraising goals for the weekend. His performance exceeded our expectations and he captivated the audience with his costumes, mannerisms and vocals that transformed our event to a "Night with Elvis. His On time arrival and interfacing with the audience magically convinced everyone the king was in the house. I highly recommend Ralph as an entertainer that truly works with you to deliver a premium performance that is worth every penny and more of the price we paid for his services. We will definitely bring him back for an encore prrformance!!
Ralph was "right-on" with Elvis as to dress, hair, sideburns, moves and mannerisms. This was a birthday event for my now 86YO mom, with moderate dementia, and he was a godsend! The tribute to Elvis was PERFECT--- hair, attire, jewelery, music-- he even asked which Elvis decade we would prefer!! My mom was so happy, and we had Mom dancing and everyone present eagerly clapping and enjoying the show. He was genteel and truly conveyed the "Elvis" persona. He was WONDERFUL with my mom. Would hire again, for sure! Thank you, RE!!
Elvis came and shook down the house. Our physicians and nurses were so impressed by Houston Elvis. Almost a week later and people are still showing me photos from the event. 14/10 would book again!
Response from Houston Elvis, Ralph Elizondo:
Thank you, Carrington, for hiring Houston Elvis For your entertainment. I loved meeting all the doctors and hope to see you in the future. Thank you, thank you very much!
The consummate professional Ralph gave a solid performance, involving the audience in his routines. After his songs he mingled with audience and posed for pictures with them. Will not hesitate to recommend Ralph to others planning parties and/or family events.
What a Fun Time Elvis put on for us! He included the audience and danced with them, was very polite, accommodating, flexible, and friendly to everyone. He did photo ops and gave my dad a signed photo as well for his 70th Birthday, which was what we were celebrating. Everyone kept commenting how fantastic the party was and he was a huge element to it. Thank you, Ralph, for making our event so unforgettable.
Ralph was so enthusiastic as he performed at my sister's retirement facility. He was there to celebrate her birthday and was very attentive to her (even brought her a teddy bear!) as well as to other residents. He was very kind and seemed to be enjoying himself as well as being entertaining!
He was so much and engaging! We were all up dancing and my parents were singing and having a blast! He also did a (surprise to my parents) vow renewal. They loved it. Thank you!’
This was for our sons 50’s themed 18th Birthday! He loves Elvis! And Mr. Elizondo did a fantastic job! We all really enjoyed his entertainment! We would definitely recommend him!
Elvis (Ralph) came to sing for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday. She was beyond thrilled and so was the family. He was professional, courteous, attentive and very informative about Elvis history. His performance was totally entertaining and well worth the fee for his services. He went above & beyond anything we could have expected. Would so recommend him for any event you might have!
On time and perfect.
He arrived early and was very accommodating. He is polite and professional. The Elvis impersonating was great! The costume was perfect!
Everyone enjoyed it tremendously. Many said they wish you could have stayed longer. Cathy was right when she recommended you. Great Job.
I hired Ralph to surprise my friend at her 40th birthday party. I was out of town and could not be there, but he handled everything perfectly! My friend had a blast with him!
I hired Ralph to surprise my husband and two kids at our home for our 10 year anniversary. Ralph's performance was such a joyous memory for all of us! I would highly recommend him for any little or big event. Thanks Ralph!!!
This is the second time we have had “Elvis” at my Mother’s birthday party. He did a great job entertaining the entire group!
I hired Elvis for my husband’s 45th birthday dinner. He went over and beyond to make it special and entertaining. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed him, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Ralph arrived right on time ready to entertain my delighted wife on her 65th birthday. Would recommend for anyone!
Our wedding was postponed given the events of Harvey. Ralph and his team were very accommodating and worked with our schedule. On the day of, our guests loved him! We had our first dance and a dance with our parents as he sang/performed. He stayed around for pictures and went above and beyond for our event. We could not have been happier!
Ralph was WONDERFUL! My fiancé had given up hope on being married by Elvis being we live in a small town. Little did she know I had done my homework and found Ralph through Gigsalad. He had very good communication with me throughout the process and took great care of us. Our ceremony was very brief but he performed four songs for us, had the two of us and my daughter grinning from ear to ear. He is genuinely a nice guy who gave us a great performance and chatted about his times as Elvis. Ralph congratulated us many times and we were very happy to have him perform our ceremony. Don't hesitate to book him... you will be very happy!
Always the professional. Our venue was a moving target but Ralph/Houston Elvis was extremely accommodating. Five stars all the way!
Ralph was just fantastic !! If there was a better word to show the appreciation for his performance I would use it !! My fiancé was really pleased and she was so happy !!
I would recommend him to any one wanting a Elvis show !!! : )
Ralph aka "Elvis" did an amazing job! What a great way to surprise my mother in law for her 70th birthday!
We hosted a Casino Royale themed engagement party. Ralph arrived in a classic Elvis attire (white suit). Very professional, courteous, and easy to work with on such short notice. Thank you Ralph so much for a pleasant evening.
We loved him! He put on a great show! We were very pleased with his performance.
Friendly dancing and mingling with the audience. A pleasure to deal with. Everyone loved his performance. Exceeded our expectations. Ralph is a pleasure to deal with.
Ralph made my mom's day for her birthday! He was very professional and provided me with a quote right away. He also let me pick his color of jumpsuit and the songs I wanted him to sing. To top it off, he gave my mother a teddy bear and a scarf :-) I highly recommend this Ralph!!!
He was very involved with the audience. Wonderful personality. Always stayed in touch with us
I have to say that our event was full of complications. The restaurant where our Valentine's Day luncheon was being held lost power due to a storm in the area. "Elvis" arrived and was unable to power his equipment. He was extremely professional and patient while we waited for Centerpoint to show up and resolve the power issue. Throughout all the distraction, we still managed to keep our surprise, and the show did finally go on. It was definitely worth the wait, and everyone enjoyed Ralph's performance. On behalf of myself and my co-workers, we would certainly recommend Ralph to any Elvis fans looking for an impersonator.
Great entertainment. Everything from the outfit to the autographed picture. Top notch!
Ralph was absolutely incredible - he performed as a gift for one of our clients, and the client had such a blast! Ralph was so responsive and flexible with our crazy timing, what a pleasure it was working with him!
Very personable and talented. Everyone loved him and had a great time.
Elvis Ralph made Mom's 94th birthday an experience we will cherish in our memories always. Thanks, Ralph, for blessing us 😊
I would recommend Ralph Elizondo wholeheartedly. He was engaging, personable & is so talented. It is obvious that he puts his whole heart into his performance.
Ralph did an amazing job! He was the highlight of the party and guests were still talking about him weeks later. He was also very professional, friendly and even spent time talking photos with guests after his performance.
Ralph was awesome and provided a much needed break during a hospital stay.
great performance. Communicated and followed up several times before date. Performance was very nice and entertaining.
I cannot say enough good things about Ralph, but here are a few highlights.
Professional: He communicated very well with us from initial quote all the way through the event. He showed up to our wedding in plenty of time to set up and discuss last minute details for the ceremony. He even brought his own audio equipment as backup which was needed when our venue decided to hide/not provide their microphone.
Friendly: Ralph was extremely nice through email and on the phone. He was flexible with our requests for his outfit, songs to sing, and arrangement of our vows. He even took pictures with friends and family at the wedding.
Excellent Performance: Ralph walked us through our vows, signed the certificates, and then sang several songs (a couple that we requested and a few others that he was nice enough to throw in). When he begins singing, he comes alive! We had an impromptu first dance to him singing because it felt very natural. I will keep him in mind for future occasions and recommendations, so I could watch him perform.
Regardless of your event type, Ralph would be a great addition. Everyone enjoyed him from my 92 year old grandmother to toddlers that were dancing to the beat. He brought a unique touch to our wedding and helped to make it memorable for us and our guests.
Ralph Elizondo, was a hit at my mother's 69th surprise birthday party! She is a devout Elvis fan. All the guests have made numerous comments telling me how good of a surprise it was and how much they loved ELVIS!!! Ralph made my mother feel like a QUEEN!!! He gave us or monies worth and more. He was very punctual, friendly and gave the best show ever!!!! I have worked with countless entertainers and I can say Ralph is very professional and friendliest person ever. When Ralph showed up he came in a very top knotch professional red costume. The senior ladies loved it so much!!! He gave my mother a teddy bear and instantly sang happy birthday to her. She has not stopped smiling yet. Then he went on to sing several other songs where the senior ladies were singing & got up and danced (which I have not seen them do in a very long time). Ralph then took pictures with everyone personally and made each person feel very special. I would highly recommend Ralph as he will make sure your event is a success!!!! Keep up the good work Ralph. The ladies are already asking when we are going to have you come back again.
I HIRED RALPH FOR MY DAUGHTERS BIRTHDAY PARTY. A GREAT SUCCESS! THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVESEEN RALPH PERFORM AND HE DOES AN OUTSTANDING JOB!
I wanted to put on a great party for my mother's 60th birthday and having Houston Elvis there made for a special night! I was thoroughly impressed by Ralph's professionalism and attention to detail; prior to the show he had every detailed planned and I did not have to do a thing! I would highly recommend.
Ralf was awesome, he interacted with my guests and everyone had a great time.
We had Ralph for a program that we do for Seniors. They really liked him and had a wonderful time!
My Mom nearly cried when Mr. Elizondo arrived and surprised her. Thanks for making my parents 50th Anniversay memorable. I know the Baptist crowd is a little reserved but everyone commented on how great you were! They are facebooking and talking about what a wonderful time they had! Thanks! Diane
Ralph was fantastic, his outfit was gorgeus and his performance was very professional, my family and friends had an unforgettable night.
If you're looking for a great show then look no further Ralph was awesome.
We hired Ralph for my moms 60th birthday. She had no idea he was coming and was completely surprised! He was on time, very friendly, looked and sounded like elvis and did an amazing performance. My mom and all the guest enjoyed it a lot! If your looking for a great elvis impersonator I would definitely recommend him!!
We had Ralph come and surprise our parents at their 50th wedding anniversary party. He was great!. He came in the "gold" Elvis jacket - perfect for the golden anniversary. His song choices were perfect and he did a great job getting the crowd involved in the show. We would definitely hire him again. Also very impressed that he gave a special blessing to my parents at the end of his performance.
God Bless you too Ralph.
Ralph put on a kickass birthday show for a bedridden friend. Even though there was limited space, he set everything up in the bedroom and sang like he was on a stage. He brought the mood up as soon as he stepped in, and left us in high spirits for the rest of the day. You can tell he's had a lot of experience getting people to dance around and enjoy themselves. Highly recommended.
Ralph is super professional and did an amazing Elvis performance. My husband & his whole office loved it!! Couldn't be more pleased!!
I hired Ralph to perform for my step-mother's birthday. She is an invalid and in declining health so it is quite difficult to make special occasions "special." Ralph had so many glowing reviews that choosing him was a no brainer, but, I have to admit I thought, "can anyone really be that good?" Well, he is. His performance exceeded my every expectation. He is such a dynamic performer! An extremely talented vocalist in his own right, he nails Elvis' vocal style perfectly. To top it all off he has a gentle and caring nature that was evident in how he interacted with my step-mother. We are so greatful for all the smiles he brought us, he is truly a treat.
We hired Ralph for a birthday party. He keeps himself in good shape, had the perfect amount of energy, and knew how to work his audience. This is someone that is dedicated to his trade, but also goes over and above in customer service. If you are looking for the best, then hire him and go with Ralph. He won't let you down. His costumes are not the "cheap" version, but instead the best looking costumes I have ever seen. I have tried to go with a less expensive Elvis in the past and I was not happy with that person. Ralph is simply put, a nice person with a big heart and he will make your event a success. Thank you, Ralph and please keep up the good work!
I wanted to surprise my Mom with an appearance from Elvis for her 60th Birthday. We had a Luau themed party and Ralph showed up in a Hawaiian outfit. We secretly brought him around to where the band was playing and when they took a break, Ralph came on and sang Happy Birthday to my Mom, as Elvis. She was blown away as was everyone else at the party. He sang some more songs, danced with guests, and took some pictures with everyone. My Grandmother even said that she had not had that much fun in years. Ralph was punctual, professional and even able to work with the band we hired that he never met. We were all very pleased.
Ralph and Stella are absolutely magnificent! Ralph worked with my budget and was constantly following-up with me BEFORE my event and making sure everything would be in place. He showed up on time, gave 3 sets of great Elvis performance and did meet and greets. My guests absolutely loved him and he sounded so much like Elvis. His costumes are very original and he has the dance moves down and he mingled with everyone. You have to use him as your Elvis - I totally vouch for his impersonation!! Love ya Ralph, it was awesome!!!
We hired Elvis to preform at our wedding and officiate the ceremony. He did a wonderful job, he interacted with all the guests and put on a great preformance!! We enjoied him a lot and are hiring him again for my mothers 50th birthday in a few months.
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!
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
Ralph was a very nice man and very entertaining.
We really enjoying having him over as Elvis for my friends wedding shower.
Where do I start? We have hosted numerous wedding showers, but I can honestly say, I have never had so much fun! I cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard! 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. Again, you were AWESOME!!! Thank You!
Ralph Elizondo was an excellent Elvis impersonator -- by song, voice, costume, and personality. Very professional with his time commitment, agreement and equipment set-up. Also very flexible in helping make our event a success!
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.
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 brings to life the great songs and style of Elvis's music. His fun spirit and warm personality makes any event more special.
We hired Ralph Elizando, the Houston Elvis to perform at my mom's "70"th birthday party and loved his peformance! He did a great job by surpising her and performing all her favorite songs. He was the talk of the party and all the party guests really loved him.His performance was the highlight of the party and we highly recommend him to anyone that is fan of the King!
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.
Ralph was fantastic. He adapted to our settings and performed tremendously! The surprise party was a resounding success.
He exceeded expectations!!
Ralph "Elvis" Elizondo made my wife's day coming into her classroom as Elvis, He was great.
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.
Ralph Elizando played at my husband's 65th birthday party. He was fabulous! He looks, moves and sounds just like Elvis. He worked the audience..got people dancing and singing to the tunes. People told me what a difference he made at the party! He even played longer than expected.
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 had Ralph- (aka Elvis) to our wedding at the Toyota Center- he was amazing- i hope to hire him again- of course - not for a wedding- but something else- he was awesome--take care..todd
This is our second experience with Ralph Elizondo. Once again he performed to our expectations! He is a true professional. The first event was a 40th birthday party - the second event was a 70th birthday party. On both occasions he was able to interact with the party goers and show them a really good time!! Highly recommend 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
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.

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!
I Have actually had the pleasure of seeing Ralp on many occations. He has always been prefessional and knowledgeable. His genre is the whole realm of Elvis and can easily focus his show for any occation. His tribute performances are a pleasure to see. I would highly recommend Ralph for any event.
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.

Later he went on to play professionally and tour with several well known bands. He also sang back up vocals. In his teens, Ralph found out he had a talent for dancing after winning numerous dance contests with his sister.
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 at a local show. Ralph went on to win many local and national contests as an Elvis Tribute Artist starting his solo career. In August of 2001 the well known Elvis Entertainers Network accepted Ralph for membership ( a prestigious all Elvis booking agency in Chicago, endorsed by Graceland). This agency is very selective in the Elvis professionals they accept as members.

Audiences are amazed 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 on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Newspapers nationally and locally have featured articles on Ralph’s show with rave reviews to include: The Houston Chronicle, The Star, The Herald, The Associated Press and many others. Ralph has been hired as a professional actor appearing in his own local television show in Houston and starred in a nationally televised commercial for a Las Vegas corporation ( aired during a Dallas Maverick basketball game). Internationally, Scotland fans know Ralph because he was featured in a 30 minute radio show live from Graceland. He impressed the audience by singing a cappella.

Influences & Inspiration
Elvis Presley of Course
Electrical AC outlet
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
"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."
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.
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.
"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."
"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!"
