I've never heard of him, but that family tree has a lot of cousins and extended family and the impersonators aren't really my thing, but he appears to be as good as any of them . I find most of them are disrespectful. What I can see on the site he appears to at least be giving a good effort.

Patsy Anderson sent me a CD of Gerry Presley..........he has quite a good voice but not an Elvis by a long shot. Seems he is quite a nice and respecful guy.

He was at Portcawl last year I believe?

This guy isn't even a first cousin to Elvis, and didn't know Elvis at all. He's a joke dressing up in the jumpsuits and walking around saying Elvis is his cousin.

He's out to make a quick buck. He really doesent even deserve to be mentioned in the same context as Elvis as he had nothing to do with him.

How come we have not heard about Jerry Presley until recently?
I have never read about him in the early Elvis biographies.
Another impersonator thinks he's Elvis.

Ok, I've been around business for 4 years....Who is this guy? This is what I mean about when I say people like this make it harder for me to do this for living.

I really wounder how much of those pictures are fakes? That's why I don't put any thinking but "Tribute To Elvis" in my show. Because I'm not even close to blood relation, and I do know I'm not better than Elvis himself.

Love to all,

It makes any intelligent fan cringe. He is holding onto a distant family link for his claim. No one takes him seriously, and no one ever will. It's quite hard to take anyone who attempts to impersonate Elvis seriously, especially when they try and claim to be related to him.

The public at large relate to impersonators as something to be laughed at.

The impersonators do have a spot in popular culture, or Elvis culture might be more to the point. The impact they have had upon Elvis's image in the public persona in my opinion is extremely negative, and I would prefer to see them removed or controled under trademark laws. They bask in impersonating the final years of Elvis's life and justify their own lack of physical care to represent Elvis in his latter years.

I'm only going to say this once, but Elvis looked a hundred times better at his very worst than any of these guys ever will.

You hit the nail right on the head.I know they will never go away and its a real shame when somebody sees one of these guys and that forms their impression's of Elvis.

Many Elvis Presley Fan Clubs use them to raise money for charities.

The two largest Elvis fan clubs in Ireland raise huge amounts of money for very good causes.

George Twamley the best known Elvis fan in Ireland and John Kavanagh of the Elvis Presley Social Club both use Elvis impersonators and run very well attended Charity events at the City West Hotel and the Red Cow Inn Hotel on the NAAS Road Dublin. They raise hundreds of thousands of Euros annually and George has been doing Elvis events for decades.

I'm 64 and in my lifetime I have only attended one Elvis impersonator event and that was by invitation from Dublin County Council because the "The Irish Times" was covering the event for the 20th Anniversary.

There are thousands of Elvis impersonators worldwide. Even one young guy here in Swords, and I guess thousands more will appear during your lifetime.

An old Irish? saying, "What cannot be cured must be endured", hits the nail on the head!

Not all Elvis tribute artists are fat...thank heavens I've seen quite a few slim ones, but none really look like Elvis! If one did he would be earning millions...or marrying into millions.

By the way Patsy Anderson worked at Graceland for decades and was let go...maybe this is her revenge? We exchanged some email early last year. She was trying to get Jerry Presley a booking in Ireland..........see how lucky you are she didn't suceed:-)

elvislady, I bet you are sorry you started this thread :-)

I'm not fond of Elvis impersonators either but there are some who are harmless and actually feel they are just doing a tribute and that's okay.

Doesn't really matter as each one is only one in thousands and Elvis was only one in one and completely unique. Even those who have never seen Elvis in person have seen umpteen photos of him and have heard him sing so they know the difference........:D
