Dear Martyn & Sue

Re: The Lords Taverners v Willow Foundation Cricket match

Thank you for your tremendous input on the day. I greatly appreciate what you did on the day - I do hope Elvis Shmelvis gets lots of bookings through it. We were hampered somewhat by the weather which undoubtedly affected crowd numbers, but everything in the pavillion was a huge success. Nigel Seale - Chairman - The Lords Taverners

"All 370 staff said you were excellent. We wan't you back again for next year. Very smooth, fantastic voice, very professional" Peter Istead. Managing Director, Lifestyle Europe

Just to say a tremendous thank you for helping to make my 60th birthday so memorable. I had a wonderful evening and judging from all the letters I've had, so did everyone else! You took care of the whole event so I didn't have to worry about anything. That took some doing as I'm the world's worst worrier! Comments like - Elvis Shmelvis is a great singer; he included everyone; he played exactly the right sort of background and disco music; a real tribute to Elvis; SO entertaining. Norman & I felt everything was perfect - the venue, the food and the entertainment. It was a very special evening and thank you again for the part you played. If you have such a thing as a mailing list for any 'general' event you're doing, could you include me please? Also, how did your audition for the Lord go?
Best wishes.......Christine

Every so often in life an experience remains forever etched in your collective memory for its unique, magical and joyous quality. The night my friends and I spent in St Albans was one such event - Elvis Shmelvis was absolutely fantastic! A very talented singer and entertainer, far, far better than I would ever have imagined! Don't miss him!....Bruno Ditri

Every so often in life you experience an evening with your friends which remains forever etched in your collective memory. The evening Elvis Shmelvis performed in St Albans was, for us, one such amazing event! It was a truly magical experience! Shmelvis' voice so magnificently emulated the King's that it left us truly in awe. His charisma kept the audience spellbound and feeling completely involved in the entire evening. I would thoroughly recommend this performer to anyone!....Bruno Ditri

"A FANTASTIC performer; 10/10 entertainment value (and a very, very fine singer)"....Paul Barnes

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a evening to remember!"....Sarah Bullock

It was also a pleasure to meet the two of you. Good luck in the future. Kind regards"....... Sally & Martin Howe


Martyn & Sue - thank you so much - I have never been so confident about any of my bookings for our wedding. Thank you for your enthusiasm - and your efficiency in dealing with what is our most stressful, but hopefully fabulous occasion. You came so well recommended, and I am sure we will also be recommending you. Best wishes Ann & Mike Perkins

Dear Sue and Elvis - we would just like to write to say a big thank you for performing for our party at the Roslin Hotel, Thorpe Bay on Saturday, June 27th. We all thoroughly enjoyed the night and much credit goes to yourselves for yet again a fantastic show. Our guests thought you were superb. Thanks again Gary & Mandy Staines

Hi Sue,

We have received the following from the client,

I would just like to pass on our sincerest thanks to yourselves and to
Elvis Shmelvis (and his wonderful wife Sue) for all the hard work that
went into making my Mum's surprise birthday party such a success.

'Elvis' and Sue were punctual, polite, incredibly helpful and friendly,
and they judged the mood of the room perfectly with song choices and
performance. We would certainly recommend Elvis Shmelvis to anyone
looking for a fun and flawless evening of entertainment.

Please make sure our thanks are passed on to 'Elvis' and Sue, we were
all over the moon with their work and they deserve to know how highly
they are now regarded in Billericay!

Thanks again,

Andy Pritchard
