“My job as an Elvis tribute is basically a labour of love. It’s the best job in the world, meeting new people and trying to spread the gospel of Elvis at the same time.”

Matt King has been performing his Elvis show and tribute for over 23 years and is well-known as one of the leading Elvis impersonators in the UK.

The idea to perform an Elvis tribute began in Tenerife in 1991, when Matt won an Elvis soundalike contest and he immediately got the bug to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time

Matt King’s Elvis Show

 

Matt King performs his show as an Elvis Entertainer/ Tribute show all around his locality of Surrey, Kent, Essex and London and is no stranger to towns further afield such as Birmingham, Brighton, Liverpool, Manchester and Blackpool amongst others. Matt’s show is perfect for wedding receptions, special birthdays parties or restaurants social clubs. You can choose any type of show you want, from the ‘68 Comeback in sleek black leather or the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, with the classic ‘70s jumpsuits and stage costumes.  All of Matt’s costumes and outfits are made in America by B&K enterprises who use the original patterns created for Elvis himself.

Matt’s show is performed using high-quality sound and a fully self-contained pa system. If you want a larger show then Matt is also available with a full live band.

Each show can be tailored to your requirements i.e.

  • A one-hour show (good for weddings and birthdays) or
  • Two 45-minute shows, ideal for restaurants

Matt has a very easy-going style and has a very good way of interacting with the crowd and audience, especially with the Mother-in-Law at wedding receptions!

Matt has the ability to sing in all styles of Elvis performing songs from the ‘50s ‘60s and the ‘70s Las Vegas and concert era.  All the major songs and hits are in his repertoire, including classics such as Blue Suede Shoes, Jailhouse Rock, Cant Help Falling in Love, A Little Less Conversation, Suspicious Minds, The Wonder of You and of course An American Trilogy, as the end of show finale.

Have a listen to the audio clips, as well as the video clips in the gallery to see Matt in action as the King – Elvis

If you are planning on having The King come visit then Matt’s show is 2nd to none.

    You were recommended by friend of mine. I was wondering if you are available on Friday, 13 May at Newbury, Berkshire. If you are available how much would it be for a set?

    The occasion is a headmaster retiring at a school.

    Regards

    Matt is an unbelievable entertainer and individual. He is very personable, always knowing so many people by name. He is always ready to do requests. He is so much like Elvis. His movements and voice is something that you just don’t forget. Anyone seeing him the first time will want to go back again and again.
