"Outstanding performer with great stage presence"

"Excellent vocals"
- BBC Radio Cov & Warks

We book Dave Dixon every year for the Moto GP and the Formula 1 Grand Prix., due to all the emails we get we would not use anyone else. The king of Diamonds American legends show is a really entertaining act and Dave is a great performer.

Here at BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Dave Dixon is a friend of the station, he regularly appears on several shows live on air with Vic Minett, Shane O Connor and Malcom Boyden. He is an excellent tribute

We were pleased with Dave Dixon as Elvis at our Elvis weekend 2011 Porthcawl. He was one of six professional ETA's we needed for the event. He had the look, the voice, the moves and the humour of the King himself. An excellent weekend was had by all.
- Parkdean Showdome Porthcawl

We were so glad Dave Dixon could perform at our wedding as we got married in Las Vegas and we had the reception at the Ettington hall hotel in Stratford for the rest of our friends and family. He recreated the atmosphere of being in Vegas with his fabulous tribute to Elvis.

Dave Dixon's Ska tribute back by popular demand, Standing room only !
- G Casino Ricoh Arena Coventry

A true professional, not just on the night but prior to it. Dave kept me informed and absolutely stole the show on the night. He delivered his sets without any flaw, together with humour. The crowd loved him, and given the chance we would have had him carry on into the night. Thanks a million, we are trying to think of a good reason to have another party. Thanks again, keep up the good work!
- Kerry Jenkinson- Portsmouth

- Sheila Equity
