JD KING - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) Is JD KING'S ELVIS tribute show a professional high quality act?
With performance training prior to 15 years (to date) professional experience as an Elvis impersonator, JD KING has been there and done that when it comes to performing as Elvis on stage.
So when you book JD, you can rest assured that your event will be delivered in a slick, consistent and entertaining manner. Jim’s approach is to to try and recreate Elvis at his best (not, as some like to do as a joke, his worst) all the while taking the material seriously – but never himself too seriously!
2) What is JD KING's Elvis tribute band like?
JD only works with full time professional musicians who have the technical skills and the passion to do justice to Elvis' music. Ranging from a 4-piece all the way up to 12-piece band and singers for large venues, JD KING can cater his show to suit all environments and clients needs.
3) Will JD KING tailor the show to the feel and style of my wedding event?
JD consistently invests deeply to ensure that he is only using the highest quality materials and equipment when presenting his tribute to the King. From the costumes to the sound/lighting to backing tracks and musicians; Jim only uses the best.
Unlike a lot of other acts who will still try to work with old, outdated and poor quality equipment, with badly produced electronic backing tracks and poorly tailored costumes – JD, by contrast, presents a truly professional and high quality show.
4) Is JD KING's ELVIS tribute too old to perform like Elvis at his best at my party?
Jim Devereaux at 33 years old is perfectly placed to realistically present Elvis in all eras of his career. Elvis Presley performed from the age of 18 to his death at 42 – putting JD right in the middle of that path!
Unlike so many Elvis tributes, who are significantly older than the King was when he died (and it shows!), with JD you’re getting the best of all worlds with his excellent mix of youth and experience.
5) Will JD KING'S ELVIS let me choose my own songs and era for a show to fit my party?

6) Will JD KING ELVIS impersonator care about the performance at my party and put the effort in? Is he a fan of Elvis Presley?
The very first music Jim Devereaux fell in love with as a young child was Elvis Presley’s and many many years on, that has not changed. It is the reason Jim became JD KING and that passion and commitment to Elvis is plain for all to see in his performances.
There are many Elvis tributes who don’t have much interest in or knowledge of the King (only doing it because they think it’s easy) and it shows. Rest assured, Jim’s passion for the music of the 20th century’s greatest music icon has never wavered and because of that, JD is always striving to be the best tribute he can be – never settling for an ‘it’ll do’ or ‘close enough’ approach.
