John Beardsley as Elvis, not sure he isn't Elvis, he is non-stop singing and entertaining.. Great band and backup singers with all having a story of working for well known artists. Elvis and his wife interacts with the audience and is very funny. Going into theatre a man came up besides us and ask if we were going to see... More

We like Elvis music and this place was close by and reasonable so we Figured why not go . Well it was the best show we saw in Nashville . John (Elvis) entertained us much higher than my expectations. I would highly recommend this entertainer .

We have seen many Elvis Impersonators,mostly in Las Vegas, but this was without a doubt the best we have seen. We have seen many good ones and of course some very poor ones but the Nashville King is the best. He has the moves and voice of Elvis but his looks is not like Elvis but we did see one... More

The excitement for this show begins at the ticket booth with Darlene and continues through the show right to the end! I've seen a few tributes of the king before and figured this was just one more. I was so wrong. The knowledge imparted to us about Elvis was great and the energy level was enormous. I felt Elvis's presence... More

We saw this Elvis Tribute show last night (Sept. 22) and were truly impressed. This show is one of the best entertainment values in Nashville. John new the entire career of Elvis thru words and music. His energy was unprecedented! One comment would be a little less karate. It didn't help the show.

WOW! The show, John Beardsley, was perfection! One of the hardest working people in Nashville! Over two hours long...he never quits!! Five costume changes! He has a wealth of knowledge...he KNOWS how Elvis started...from the 1950's through the 1970's. He was wonderful...and the singing sounds like Elvis. The show IS a CLASS ACT!

The show was fun and inexpensive. John has lots of energy and great backup support. Not the least of which is his wife (she I'd the one selling tickets). A fun way to kill three hours. BRING A SWEATER OR JACKET!!!

This show was put on by one of, I would say, the hardest working people in Nashville. The is a tribute show to, of course, Elvis Pressley. I have never been to a tribute show before, but this one really made me love Elvis all over again. The singer (I wouldn't say impersonator as in between songs he talked to... More

Great Evening and John puts on a great show. He is a wealth of knowledge on all things Elvis and weaves this knowledge through narration during the course of the evening

Good voice if he sang normally. Maybe he looked and sounded like Elvis 10-20 years ago but not as much today. He reminded me more of a Johnny Cash impersonator than Elvis. Slow down on the dancing, at times it was to much of one move. His back up singers were amazing and would have loved to hear more from... More
