We really enjoyed having Hugo perform at our summer reading kickoff! He does a great job recreating Elvis' sound and look. I thought that a 1950's Elvis show made for a great inter-generational program: nostalgia for some, a fun retro-themed performance for others, and something "new" and exciting for kids who weren't familiar with Elvis. Our patrons loved the show and I would definitely recommend Hugo's Elvis.
Hugo came to our It' Showtime at the Library summer reading kick off event. For someone so young his performance and knowledge of Elvis was very impressive. He would start each song with a brief history or fun fact that would give him the chance to engage with the audience and I saw both adults and kids dancing and singing through out his hour long set. As an Elvis fan myself, I was happy to hear both classic Elvis songs and some that are not very common. He even took the time to wish an audience member a Happy Birthday and dedicate a song to them. Our patrons really enjoyed his performance and said a number of positive things, I would highly recommend him and would hire him again!
This was the first time we booked Hugo's Elvis - his performance was great! He engaged the audience well and his transitions between songs were smooth. There were many positive patron comments after the show. We will defiantly bring back Hugo's Elvis.
We just had Hugo perform at our library for a family sock hop program. He performed a lively and seamless hour-long set that had all ages dancing and left everyone really impressed. We received a lot of compliments from patrons, and two people expressed interested in engaging him for events of their own. The authenticity of his look, sound, and moves are really remarkable. As a big Elvis fan myself, I couldn't have been more pleased with the song selections or his delivery. Hugo and his team were also wonderful to work with, flexible, helpful, and communicative--which is always really appreciated, and just really nice people in general. We would definitely hire him again.
We had Hugo's Elvis come and perform at our library during our end of the summer carnival. He was AWESOME!! He played many songs and was very engaging to the audience. During his "Teddy Bear" song he gave out plush teddy bears to the small children in the audience, which truly melted our hearts. We were thrilled with his performance, and his professionalism and business ethic throughout the entire booking process was impressive as well. We will definitely have him come back and perform here again.
Hugo was wonderful. Entertaining, charming, a pleasure to work with. The audience loved him. Multiple attendees have told me how great he was -- and many of these people aren't our regular program attendees. When it was over one little girl came down and requested a copy of Blue Hawaii. 100 people from kids to seniors attended.
