• Rock'n'Roll Elvis

 

WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF SEEING THE STARS

 

A three-course dining cruise with a live Elvis tribute performance by a top artiste, a chance to have a dance and great views of the Thames.

An award-winning Elvis tribute artist will give a stunning performance as Elvis, singing his way up and down the Thames.

Ben Thompson: Winning ‘Best 50s Elvis’ in the UK at just 17 years old. Ben has several contest wins under his belt and has starred in many touring shows worldwide, winning 2nd prize during Elvis Week in Memphis in the Ultimate contest in 2016 and in August this year (2018) he was the outright winner of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute contest in Memphis and is officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises. 

Matt King: Matt has won a number of trophies as Elvis. In 2004 he was the outright winner of the European Championships and in both 2015 and 2016 he took 1st place in Canada and at two of the biggest competitions in Europe (Elvis Now & King Of Britain).

Garry J Foley: Garry is a multi award-winning Elvis Tribute Artist (ETA) and has performed throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide. He is a frequent visitor to China, India, Canada and the USA.
With his background in musical theatre, he had the opportunity to enter in to the Tribute world and has since fulfilled a lifelong ambition to entertain audiences worldwide by performing the music of Elvis Presley.

Mario: Mario Kombou originally trained as an actor in London. He portrayed Elvis in the West End’s production of Jailhouse Rock and tours worldwide with his show The Elvis Years.

Join us on one river cruise that’s truly Rock’n’Roll. ‘Elvis’ will perform, you’ll enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and a three-course dinner and then you’ll get a chance to get onto the dance floor as the boat heads towards Westminster. You’ll find cocktails, champagne and more at the fully-stocked bar.

Your ticket includes:

  • Welcome glass of sparkling wine on arrival 
  • 3-course dinner followed with tea or coffee

Elvis Dinner Cruise

    Excellent service. Staff very helpful from start to finish

    Excellent staff. Very well organised. Food excellent. Entertainer was superb. He interacted with everyone and got everyone up dancing. Could not fault the whole evening. Uninterrupted views from all the windows. Lovely to see London by night from another perspective. Well worth the money. Would defineatly go on this trip again in the future.

    The Elvis entertainer was really excellent, a great voice and engaging personality and he seemed committed to involving the audience and making sure everyone had a good time. However, the food was not great with no menu options, you simply had to have what you were given. There were obviously a number of people who didn't realise that this would be the case and I noticed that several didn't have the fish starter as they were not fish eaters. While I appreciate that there is a limit to the amount and variety of food you can offer on a boat, surely it's easy to simply get guests to choose what they'd like to eat when they book. We also asked if it would be possible to taste the wine in advance of ordering a bottle only to be told no it was company policy not to offer tastings, even though this was a wine sold by the glass, so a taste would not have necessitated opening a bottle.

    02 May 2019

    ★★★

    Food needs sorting, Starters good but was served and we ate ours before even leaving the Wall, then had to wait 3/4 hour for Mains, undercooked veg, average standard meal, desert was lovely. Drinks so expensive £1:90 for a tin of 50p coke, £1:30 for a Squash, also hard to get understood with so many workers from overseas, asked for a squash and got a Scotch to start with. Would not recommend it, Dance floor to small, 50% of people cant see the performer because they have there back to the bow of the boat where he was, If you are into RnR don't go, its more of a party cruise then a Elvis experience


    01 May 2019

    ★★★

    Please see review above: I attended the Elvis dinner cruise with my mum on Saturday 1st September 2018, and was slightly disappointed. Whilst our Elvis had a really great voice, and looked fantastic, his first set was mainly made up of songs which were not well-known and were quite dreary. His second set was better but both sets were very short and the last half hour from 10.30pm to 11.00pm he did not sing at all! I did not enjoy the food much either. The starter was a salmon mousse which was not enjoyable as it was just a big dollop of mousse with a few prawns on the top. The main course was chicken and vegetables and I did not like the sauce on the chicken. The dessert was quite nice (some kind of chocolate pudding with a sauce that tasted of black cherries). I have to say that both our waitresses were fantastic, particularly one of them who tried her best to find a box or bag for me to take my chicken home for my dog. Although her boss did not allow her to do this, she was very kind and understanding and I thought that she had a very good way with the customers. The actual cruise itself was very nice although the boat docked for around 20-30 minutes in the middle of the trip which I was not happy about. We had a good evening but it could have been made a lot better, taking into account the above.
