On December 5th, our precious Mother, grandmother, great grandmother & great -great grandmother passed away peacefully. She will be missed beyond words. The wonderful memories we have of Mom throughout her life will never be forgotten.
We have always given Mom birthday parties on her January 1st birthday & the most memorable birthday party was her 91st (her last birthday party).
Mom loved music & loved to dance. She was an Elvis fan & a bigger fan of Gary Garcia, the Showman. Gary was more than happy to sing for "Pinky" at her 91st birthday. "Pinky" was the nickname Gary gave Mom because she loved pink & wore a lot of pink.
Mom was so happy when Gary sang to her. She loved Elvis songs & "oldies" so much. Although she was in a wheelchair & could no longer dance, she moved her hand to the beat of the music & sang as she remembered some of words to the songs.
The attention Gary gave Mom came from the heart & Mom showed her love & appreciation by kissing Gary's hand during a song. Thank goodness for videos!
It was an unforgettable birthday- one we will always cherish.
On behalf of the family, we thank you Gary.
Thank you for your kindness, for caring, for your sincerity...and thank you for singing Mom's favorite song - "Can't help falling in love with you" at her burial.
We know she was smiling from heaven.
I booked Gary for a surprise birthday party for my sister. He arrived early for the event, was very easy to work with, had a great attitude, and most importantly sounds just like Elvis and had excellent dance moves. He works really hard to impress you and we would book him again over any one else. Thanks Gary!!! - Gina
We just celebrated a retirement party and Gary was our entertainer. He was fantastic! I wanted a crooner for an evening of elegant dining and music. Gary surpassed my expectations. I felt as if Sinatra, Dean Martin and Frankie Valley personally visited the party. He has a beautiful voice and is very charasmatic. My guest loved his show. It will be a party to remember. Book Gary now if you want the best entertainer for your event. I give him 100% approval rating for talent and professionalism!
The City of Elmendorf's Christmas Parade is a time honored tradition celebrated by the community on the first Saturday morning of December every year. Being such a small city, the event was always planned to serve a small turnout with a local DJ for entertainment. This year, I wanted it to be something different.
Luckily, on a day of going through old classmates' Facebook profiles, I came across Gary the Showman's page. I remember his brother in my class and hearing they both were in the entertainment industry. I was happy to see he pursued his dream for his career path but I was honestly more excited at the thought of providing Elmendorf a breath of fresh air! The initial Facebook notice for the event did not get much of a response but after posting promotional photos of Gary and his Selena impersonator, the post reached over a thousand people the day before the parade and just about that many showed up! It was the biggest turnout Elmendorf has ever seen.
Before the parade, I spent some time reading reviews and watching videos of Gary's performances but none of that prepared me for his actual talent! Gary will blow your mind with the flexibility of his voice. Contracting an Elvis performance does not just get you Elvis. You get Beegees, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, James Brown and other surprises that stir things up. The Elvis performance sounded so authentic, people at first thought he was lip singing! My boss' mother had attended an actual Elvis Presley concert as a young girl and she said seeing Gary's performance brought back memories.
At a typical parade, the public would come to watch the parade, pick up their free plate of food and go. Gary's ability to engage an audience kept people standing by the stage under the high noon sun for nearly 2 hours. He stole the show and made the event his. It is obvious that Gary enjoys what he does and is a true professional by touching hands with all who approach him.
Stepping back, I noticed that women and children really have the most enthusiastic response to Annette Terrazas' impersonation of Selena. Annette has the mannerisms of Selena down and her costumes are flawless. Seeing the children dancing with Annette onstage and the women below waving and singing along was really inspiring. Getting kids to dance to music that was created way before their time proves that Selena's music will never die.
Thank you, Gary and Annette. Hope to see you next year.
Hello!! I hosted a Casino Night Party honoring my mom on her 70thh birthday ... I wanted something to make the night extra special, so I found Gary the Showman and it was INCREDIBLE!!
Gary arrived in plenty of time for his sound set up and clothes change ... He was thoroughly professional during our initial meeting, the set up and after ... He completely OWNED his title of showman!! He put on an extraordinary show for the party. Everyone of every age absolutely loved it!!! Most importantly, my mom thought this was the best part of the night! In a wonderful twist, the Casino Comoany who ran the gaming portion told me, as they were packing up after the party, that they have seen many Elvis shows and Gary was easily the best Elvis they have seen. They asked his name for future party references!
In short, I can recommend Gary The Showman for any event, large or small. He is professional and an utterly convincing Elvis who put his heart into the show and everyone knew it!! I am so pleased about the party and glad to have met Gary!!
Great performance and the hit of the party. We truly enjoyed having you perform for us.
I would without-a-doubt recommend Gary The Showman for your event. They came to our graduation party for our daughter at Maggiano's. Gary as Young Elvis and Stan Wayne as Frank Sinatra made our party the best!! Everyone who went is still talking about how awesome our party was! If you want a great party with great showmanship, top quality sound and superb music choose Gary The Showman, you will be so glad you did!

My mother has Stage 4 Lung Cancer and for her birthday this year, we thought we would do something to make it especially memorable for her. After watching Gary's videos we knew he was the perfect choice for our Elvis lovin' mom.. And boy, was he! Gary put on the most amazing show and gave our mom a birthday she will never forget. He even sang a little bit of the Four Seasons per mom's request. I recommend him for absolutely any occasion! Great moves, amazing voice, and an outstanding character. 5's all around!
I hired Gary to perform at a USAA department event and he was a huge hit! He totally energized the crowd, got the audience to participate along with him.... Elvis had the house rockin!!!! We loved him!!!!! I would definitely recommend him as a great addition to any type of event!
Gary put on a great show. He made my birthday very special. I love Elvis music and he sang the songs and danced just like him. All of my guests said they loved the show and had a great time. I would recommend him to all of my friends. Thank you
Response from Young Elvis Presley:
Gina, I had a Blast at your 50th and you looked amazing! Your guest was wonderful, participating and dancing with all the Elvis moves with me. Happy Birthday!
I wanted something special for my birthday party as I knew I was also going to ask my girl to marry me that night. I came across Gary Garcia as an Elvis impersonator, perfect since my girl and I are old souls. When I spoke to Gary not only was he very professional but he made me feel like he was going to be a part of the celebration and not just there for his business. Gary and I kept in touch and talked several times leading up to my event and he made sure that my plans and his show were going to intermingle and come off without a hitch. Did it ever.... the entire party was wowed by Gary and the Soul Funk Band. Every one could not stop talking about how great of an Elvis that Gary was, and even more about his sister and the entire Soul Funk Band. The entire band interacted with my guest and made everyone feel as if they were part of the celebration.
I would recommend Gary and Soul Funk for any event in any venue.
On a personal note, Gary and the Soul Funk Band will be friends of mine for life.

Response from Young Elvis Presley:
Frank, it was a honor to be apart of your special proposal announcement that would be shared forever, and yes friends for life! I am very excited and honored again to sing down the aisle with you and your bride at the Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas June 5, 2015. I greatly appreciate you and Alma for being my #1 fans and supporter.
