About The Absolute Elvis

Come and see World renowned Elvis Presley Tribute Artist Johnny Lee Memphis. His action packed show involves the musical talents of the JLM band, and the Memphis Belles. Who, when they come together, produce this explosive and dynamic interpretation of Elvis live in concert. The Absolute Elvis Show.

Elvis was Johnny’s very first inspiration. As a small boy Johnny would passionately watch all of Elvis’s movies and listen to his songs. Through the motivation and love of Elvis his aunt Helen started Johnny Singing along and dancing the moves. All for family entertainment at the tender age of only 3. Johnny’s home grown musical talent has since taken him far and wide.

Paying homage to the king since 2004, he is absolutely one of the best Elvis Tribute Artists in the business. His craft has led him to work in countries such as Canada, China, Australia, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Italy, Germany, and of course the Mecca for all Elvis Tribute Artists as he has performed directly across from Graceland in Memphis Tennessee USA.

His career has also led him to meet and work with people who knew Elvis personally. To quote two of Johnny’s favorite critiques about his performance.

“Johnny is doing Elvis proud, when you meet him it’s like you’ve met your new best friend just like it was with Elvis” Charles Stones (elvis tour manager)

“Boy, you sure brought back a lot of great memories for me with what you just done on that stage”

Sam Thompson (Elvis’ bodyguard & close friend)

Johnny has received many awards and accolades for his very accurate and sincere performances. In 2019 he was inducted into the ‘International Elvis Presley Tribute Artist hall of fame’ (a very prestigious award indeed). Prior to this Johnny took first place at the 2015 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Preliminaries in Penticton BC Canada. This Qualification saw Johnny go on to become the only Scotsman to have made the top ten final at the Ultimate Elvis Contest in Memphis. All this on the same stage Elvis performed on all those years ago. Before that in 2014 Johnny won the European Elvis Presley Tribute Artist championships in Birmingham England.

He says that although he has had great success in contests and events all around the world, his greatest honour as an Elvis Tribute Artist, was when he was invited to perform as part of the queens jubilee celebrations held in front of thousands of people on George Square Glasgow Scotland. This event was held in the summer of 2012. The only Elvis Tribute Artist ever to do this with a live 10 piece band.

In 2010 Johnny represented Scotland at the Elvis World Cup Championships. The final was held at the St David’s hall in Cardiff Wales. One of the judges involved with this event was none other than close friend of Elvis, Joe Esposito. Very much to Johnnys surprise he became World Cup Champion that day coming out on top through a very talented international competition.

The media attention brought about from becoming a World Champion Elvis Tribute Artist seen him appear and perform on TV talk shows such as STV’s ‘The Hour’ show and BBC’s ‘The One’ show. As well as getting a mention that day on BBC and Sky news. From this success and TV exposure Johnny was invited to take his show on various prestigious Cruise ship liners in the Mediterranean and Baltic cruises.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Absolute Elvis are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
