According to American Demographics magazine:
84% of U.S. people say their lives have been touched by Elvis Presley in some way.
70% have watched a movie starring Presley.
44% have danced to one of his songs.
31% have bought an Elvis Presley record, CD or Video.
In 2005, Presley edged out Oprah Winfrey to be named the Greatest Entertainer in American History, in a nationwide survey conducted by The Discovery Channel, a fact echoed by a similar poll by Time and People Magazines.
In 2006, Atlantic Magazine asked 10 prominent historians to name the 100 most infuencial Americans. Presley was ranked as the top musician on that list, followed by Louis Armstrong.
Presley is the only artist to be inducted into all three music Halls of Fame, and holds the record for most top 10 pop singles (40), the most gold and platinum awards (139), and is the world’s best selling artist, eclipsing any other musician or group in history.
That’s the thing about the music of a legendary artist; it spans practically every adult age group.
Its true that our concerts entertain fans who remember Elvis first hand, now in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
But as Presley’s music continues to be featured in main stream applications today (major advertising campaigns, music retrospectives, etc.), music enthusiasts in their 20’s and 30’s are discovering the appealing aspects of his music, and are attending “E on the Strip” concerts to experience the Elvis sensation for themselves.
...after seeing your show, I’ve totally changed my perspective about Elvis music, I love it!!! My friends and I (all of us are in our 20’s) saw your show advertised, and we decided to check it out. The band was great, and “Elvis” was just like the real thing! It was fun seeing live music. Thanks a lot.
I remember Elvis as such an inspiring entertainer, and your show really captured the spirit. The songs sounded just like Elvis’s, and many times during the show, I told my husband that it was just like we were seeing the real Elvis in Las Vegas. I was totally thrilled. Thank you so much for the great show!

ONE VENUE’S COMMENTS:
You provided an evening of outstanding entertainment and the evaluations were full of acclamations for “E on the Strip.” The audience wanted more, more !! The performance brought the crowd to their feet and no one wanted to leave until the show ended.
The lighting and sound was outstanding, and your entire staff was understanding, cooperative and a pleasure to work with.
Best wishes to you and each member of the group as you continue to keep the wonderful music of Elvis Presley alive.
My wife and I attended “E on the Strip” last night, and I wanted to email you to tell you how much we enjoyed the show. You all certainly have your parts down perfectly, as the music sounds so much like the original. We will watch for your concert again, and can’t wait to attend.
