From the original email to the moment he left Robert was professional and friendly! I booked him for my moms small 80th.birthday dinner with just family for perform some Elvis songs for her. He was great! My mom sang along and loved every second of it. My only regret is that I didn’t book a longer time frame! I highly recommend him!
Robert McArthur was Fabulous!!! Friendly and Fun!! He really treated the Guest of Honor with warmth and made her feel special. we really want him at our next party for sure!!!!!!!
What a Great Show and Likable Entertainer!!
Thanks Again!! Ann Donato
Robert was awesome everyone had a great time.
Bob was incredibly communicative leading up to the event and really accommodating. Everyone loved his impression and taking pics with the king!
Bob put on an AMAZING performance as Elvis for my Dad's 80th birthday party. To see my very low-keyed father up and dancing was fabulous. Bob was fun and easy-going, but also a true professional. He arrived on-time, sounded great, and took the time to engage with the older members of the audience (who LOVED it!). I would highly recommend Bob to perform at your party of function. Thanks, Bob!
I watched a lot of Bob on YouTube before I booked him for my wife’s birthday party. YouTube did not do him justice. He was so good I felt like I was at a real Neal Diamond concert. He stuck around briefly after the show and all I have been hearing from our friends is how friendly Bob and his girlfriend were. He was a huge hit with my crowd and I expect him to get a couple gigs back in south Jersey because of his mind blowing performance. I highly recommend Bob for your next function.
Robert was great. We set up a skit with me going into the party first as Elvis, then him following me in after three minutes and saying the real Elvis is here. Then he went on to sing and take a large group photo. On the way out he stopped into our aftercare child program and sang Hound Dog. The retiree was on cloud 9. She said it was her best surprise ever.
Very authentic! My residents loved him!!!
Really enjoyed this Elvis impersonator (for my husband’s birthday.) He did a great job and everyone had very positive feedback.
I would definitely recommend Robert McArthur for your event. He rocks!
Response from Robert J McArthur:

Response from Robert J McArthur:
Thanks Vivian. So nice meeting you and your family. Had a great time!
Guests loved his Donald Trump, he was a good sport, a big hit.
Robert was great! He has all of Elvis' moves perfected. I couldn't have asked for more for my mother's 70th.
Robert was terrific. He is an excellent performer. We felt as if Neil Diamond was there!
A true professional! It was a pleasure to work with Rob as Elvis at Seneca Niagara Casino at their Hollywood New Years Eve Event!
Rob really captures the costuming, persona and charisma of The King of Rock. The guests enjoyed him greatly and he is excellent in working with the crowd. He took photos all evening and really goes above and beyond to connect with each person. The client was THRILLED and I look forward to future events with this talented performer.

Bob was wonderful and he made my father's birthday party a memorable one. I highly recommend him.
Bob arrived for the gig and was so sweet. He was very professional and accomodating in any requests we had. I hope he continues to have much success with his Elvis show. Thanks Bob!
I thought her was great and my mom loved having an Elvis Impersonator at her birthday party. Her friends and family definietely got into it too. He was excellent.
Bob James was a terrific entertainer, with the style and Charisma of "Elvis" himself.. His costume and presentation was Fabulous, but more important he was the Nicest guy to work with.. the guests all ended up having crushes on him, as if they were touched by he great Elvis, saving his momentos of Teddy bears, and scarfs., forever. He made the party such a blast. I recommend him with Five Stars!!!
Our party was a success due to Bob's entertainment. All guests at our party still talk about it and watch the videos over and over. I would be a reference for Bob anytime!
From my first phone conversation with Bob, I could tell Bob was a professional and more so, a gentleman. He made our 50th Surprise birthday party for a friend an over-the-top experience for everyone. His appearance, his talent and his showmanship was unsurpassed. In looking to future community fund raisers, Bob would be my first choice for entertainment. Thank you for your recommendation and leading me to Mr. Bob James.
If you're looking for Elvis, here he is. Bob was great. Everyone loved, loved, loved his performance. They couldn't stop talking about him even after he was long gone. He was better than I expected. He really did look and sound like Elvis. Bob was extremely professional, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him. I wish I was having another party so I could have him back. Thank you for a wonderful and a very memorable performance.
Bob was outstanding. From the moment I spoke woth him on the phone I knew that there was something special about him. Not only did he look and sound like Elvis but has a superb spirit and made our party very special and one that people will talk about for years to come. Thanks again Bob
Bob was a phenomenal performer, and a real pleasure to deal with. He seemed genuinely interested in making this a special occasion for my friend. And he was a huge hit. I would highly recommend him!
Bob James was perfect. Accomodating, talented and a lot of fun. He had a great voice, personality and a super entertainer. Even those who don't like "Elvis" loved him. My sister was trilled and so tickled with Bob James. He made her 50th Birthday Party a smashing hit. Thank you so much and I've already recommended him to others as well as your site.
Totally awesome, more than I could have hoped for. My ten year old son will remember this "Elvis" for the rest of his life. Bob catered to the class and every stray teacher that came our way. He sang, danced, signed autographs and posed for pictures. It was such an amazing day for my son. We can't wait for him to come to a show near us, we will be buying the first tickets!!
Bob James was awesome. It was the best spent money for the entire party. The women loved him and the men danced too. Would recommend and use him again for the next party! Thanks for a great job
Bob is talented and puts on a great show. The thing that sets him apart is that he is a genuinely nice person who cares about the people he is entertaining. His show is a lot of fun wihtout crossing the line
