Hi Dean/Elvis Matt
Sorry I did not get a chance to say goodbye and thank you for an absolutely incredible evening. I’m not sure I told you the particulars of how the event was established. Dianne any myself put the evening together as an auction item at a Lion’s Club Fundraiser. We designated all of the proceeds of the auction to the Fireworks Fund. The evening sold for $20,000, a significant amount for our little town. The winning bidder and his group, couldn’t be more happy and satisfied with the evening. Thanks again for a great performance.
Dianne and Del
“Matt You are a Great performer and a good friend! I really enjoyed working with you”.
Sonny West, Head Of Elvis Presley’s Security 1970’s
“Matt King is a Swiss Army knife when it comes to performing. He does great tribute to some of music’s finest artists including Elvis and Roy Orbison. Matt’s Elvis tribute is spot on while his Roy Orbison is absolutely jaw-dropping. In my years in the casino industry I’ve never heard a crowd go as wild and cheer as crazily as ours did for every Roy Orbison hit Matt performed. They LOVED him!”
Stephan Gibson, Marketing Manager @ Vernon Downs Casino Hotel
“Best Elvis Ever! Went to see Matt with our family on New Years eve. The concert was at the Casino here in Standish Michigan. Matt is the closest to the real Elvis I have ever seen! Saw the real King in 1976 and his reincarnation on New Years!”.

“Elvis Lives! Never seen an Elvis impersonator that looked, sounded, talked, and moved like the King! Saw it last night at the Little River casino. This guy blew my mind! My husband never ever stays for the entertainment at the casinos, but he did last night. Even he was impressed! Great job Matt!”
“Awesome! Amazing tribute to the King…. He’s a true class act…I’ve seen alot of tribute artist, and none compare to The Great Matt King.”

“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.”
