John Beardsley as the "Nashville King" is a superior entertainer. His backup musicians are all excellent. The theatre is very "audience friendly". There is not a bad seat in the house. The lighting and sound are just right. It is an evening that we look...More

The band was excellent!!! John was a great entertainer. The performance was very good.Elvis went from one song to the next never taking a break. He sounds a lot like the King. It was a very good show for the money.

This show is high energy! He does about 30-35 Elvis songs, in Elvis dress and doing Elvis moves, in about two hours without intermission. The backup band and the two female accompanists were excellent. The theater is small enough so that no matter where you...More

While nobody can replace Elvis, John Beardsley came close. From start to finish there was non stop music. The only breaks in the 2 hours that he took were to change outfits. The show starts in the early years of Elvis and moves up through...More

John Beardsley IS Elvis. But more importantly, he puts his all into the show even thought I understand he's performed this more than 1,000 times! It was fun, musically perfect and in a comfortable, small venue. We had a blast at this show. He performs...More

sorry but didn't see the message until today. Can remember the price but it was good. The performance hall seemed a little cheesy at first but once you get past that the entertainment is excellent.
