Now I'm a huge Elvis fan, so the amazing Johnny B Memphis (www.johnnybmemphis.com
) couldn't go without a mention!
If, like me, you're a fan of the King of Rock'n'roll, Johnny B Memphis' performance will be one you'll remember for years to come! His aim is to get everyone up by the end of the night, singing and dancing along to Elvis' classics such as Suspicious Minds and The Wonder Of You, as well as everyone's favourite Neil Diamond song Sweet Caroline.
Johnny says, “I strive to offer a near-accurate vocal performance with the dance moves Elvis was so well known for while dressed in his 1970s-period stage costume. I've studied Elvis for years and have put in a lot of work to make my performance as authentic as possible.”
While the music of Elvis Presley might not be everyone's cup of tea, Johnny has been told on numerous occasions by wedding guests that although they're not really fans, they really enjoyed the performance. Some even state that they couldn't believe how many songs they knew, and that they'd definitely go and see him again. Others have hailed him as the best tribute they've ever seen; “Which is a really lovely complement to be given,” says Johnny.
He continues, “Elvis' music is for all ages and that's why it's perfect for weddings. It's great fun for me and everyone, young and old, has a great time too!”
