Rueben, Bournemouth Square main stage – June 2017
I am one of the originals whose teen life was around the Teddy boy era when Elvis broke the mould along with Bill Haley/Chuck Berry but he had the moves, the looks and the voice… and that is what drew me from some way away on Sunday night in Bournemouth square, when I heard the voice and it was so good I thought it was a D J was playing Elvis records but when I got to the area, it was Garry J Foley singing!!
I was so impressed, not just by his singing but also his rapport with the crowd and if Elvis was still around today, he would still pack the the theatres and having Tributes like Garry around proves it.
So well done Garry and big thanks for keeping Elvis’ music alive. Again many thanks for giving us a buzz on our short break to Bournmouth .R J.
Barbara Matthews, – March 2017
Charity Lunch in aid of Julia’s House Hospices.
A superb afternoon with Garry entertaining in his highly professional, yet personable, persona.
His two sets were bespoke to our event: our 12 tables being named after Elvis hits (he had not known before he arrived) and he sang every one, together with many more.
Such a pleasure to encounter this artist/young man who absolutely “gives his all” for his audience.
“EP would be proud of the legacy which lives on through GJF”
Mehmood, Pune, India – January 2017
Hi Garry, this is Mehmood (the Elvis tribute artist from Mumbai who sang Suspicious Minds with you in Pune). Firstly many thanks for the opportunity to sing with you. Made my day. Judging from the videos I saw of you performing, the Mumbai & Bangalore concerts looked like they rocked!!
I took home with me many things from both the concerts I watched. Of course besides your professionalism, the musicianship, the voice, your band, the much rehearsed moves and of course the great song selection and the way you sung them, the one thing that struck me the most was the warmth and accessibility you showed.
Every child that was thrust into your arms and every woman that wanted a hug from you, you obliged. And your interaction with the audience, it’s special.
A natural ability is required for this which you have and is what makes you one of the best ETAs in the World….. Would love to chat with you and learn from you about the wonderful passion of Elvis Presley that we both follow. Till we meet again….
Hope you now have a few days off for a well deserved rest.
Clare and Rick Hawkins – Wedding Day
We booked Garry for our Wedding evening and he was absolutely amazing!!!
He somehow managed without trying, to get everyone up enjoying themselves dancing, many who would never get up to dance usually, he created a fantastic atmosphere and everyone could not praise him enough.
Not only does he sound like Elvis and has amazing costumes, but the way he moves and works the crowd is unbelievable.
I googled lots of Elvis tributes before booking Garry and could not have chosen better…absolutely perfect & made our wedding day! Xx
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Garrys’ performance, his impersonation of the king was incredible. A fun night was had by all.
The real king of rock and roll maybe gone but with ‘Garry J Foley’… he’s back and rocking! Thank you for a fantastic evening!
Keith & Helen Edwards
Saw Garry and his band’s theatre show for the first time, at Sturminster Newton. Wow!!! What a great night’s entertainment. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Great voice, great personality and (as a longstanding fan of Elvis) I could hear that Garry has got all the little nuances just about spot on. (Fabulous band & backing team too). Close your eyes and it really could be the King performing, just a few feet away from you!
Garry takes particular care to ensure everyone is involved in a great experience. We’ll definitely be going to future shows and will be sure to bring friends too. Thank you Garry.
With over 300 bikers to entertain, an “Elvis Tribute Act” was rumoured as a “brave choice” by our peers lol – but Garry is much more than a tribute artist and I knew what was in store.
He completely immerses himself into the role and loves every minute…by the second number there wasn’t a single person in the room not tapping their feet, singing along or giving it some on the dance floor!
His engagement with the audience is second to none and the feedback I’ve had has been nothing but positive and what a fantastic night…
Thanks for making the VSOC rock Garry! We luv’d ya!!!
Kate & Neal’s Wedding Day, Southampton
Wow..Garry performed his Vegas set at our wedding reception yesterday and I really cannot express just how utterly amazing he was. Everything you would expect plus 110% more. Can’t wait to see him again xx
We have been lucky to watch your fantastic shows several times at Porthcawl. Think your brilliant. Costumes are fab & I especially like the black leather outfit. Voice is amazing and stage prescence is totally outstanding. I was disappointed I could not get to see you at Birmingham in January but hopefully see you at the Benidorm Elvis Festival next year. Can’t wait to see you again at Porthcawl.
Garry, Just wanted to say thank you so much for an amazing evening that you performed for my Charity Night on 28th January. As always, your performance was outstanding, your energy and charisma had the 180 guests on their feet. The demand from my colleagues, clients and guests has been overwhelming. So no doubt will be wanting your services again to entertain nearly 200 people. I look forward to working with you again very soon. Thank you.
I booked Elvis to play at my husband’s birthday party in Spain. What an evening. This is a show not to miss. So professional in every way. Amazing voice and incredible costumes. Would book you again in a heartbeat Garry. You made David’s birthday one we will never forget. Thank you.
Tina King, Bangalore, India
I was at Garry’s concert last night at Catholic Club in Bangalore. It was such a delight to see Garry perform and what a performer!
One great quality was his ability to become one with the crowd, he is such an amazing personality. Loved the show and look forward to seeing him again in Bangalore, INDIA.
This was a brilliant show, The atmosphere was fantastic and fun. I took my 12 year old daughter along , and although she knows who Elvis was, she doesn’t know his songs , but she was amazed ! Thank you Garry for bringing the power ‘Elvis’ to a new generation.
Brilliant night had by all, would throughly recommend! Managed to get the crowd well engaged and performance was second to none….just a shame when Elvis left the building! Well done Garry!
Robert – Bentlys at Dudsbury Golf Club, Dorset
What a dinner show night!
The venue was packed solid for this show, Garry had the audience in the palm of his hand from the very beginning with great stage presence & going around all the tables. He had everyone on their feet & dancing, you cannot get any better recommendation than that, nobody wanted him to stop.
I would not hesitate in advising anyone to book him while you can, a simply brilliant night. out & everyone left feeling happy.

My wife and I saw your show Garry at Bracknell and I just wanted to say that we have in our travels to the USA, seen 3 or 4 Elvis impersonators and some were good , but both my wife and I agree you are better…..very very good.
It was a great show and hope to see and meet you again soon.
Lorraine and Kevin Lewis
We booked Elvis for our wedding reception after getting married in Vegas. We could not have been more pleased -the show was amazing, full of hype, excitement and crowd interaction. Great voice and moves, it could have been the king himself. We’ve been a few times since and it just gets better. A real good fun night – thoroughly recommended.

Sue – Canford Chase Nursing Home
No matter where I see Garry he is the consummate performer – his empathy with the elderly folk at this dinner date was amazing. The ladies lit up like Christmas trees and everyone was made to feel very special.
I saw a different side to Garry this evening – he is such a star.
Steve & Ang McCarthy – Weston Super Mare
We booked Garry for our sons 18th birthday party. Pete has downs syndrome and is a huge Elvis fan . Garry was an absolute pleasure to work with, giving us plenty of information of what to expect from his show .
I saw his sound check and thought it was Elvis himself , as for the show all I can say is WOW WOW WOW…. the costumes were out of this world and he made Pete’s night so special. Even after the show ended, Garry stayed for photos .
I would recommend anyone to book Garry if you want a truly professional show and he is a top guy as well . Thanks Garry for a great night.
Jane and Carol – The Highbury, Birmingham
