Bio

Tim "Elvis" Ritzka grew up in St. Louis, Missouri in the 1960s and 1970s, and loved listening to the music of Elvis Presley.  After retiring from the Air Force, he began performing tributes to Elvis, entertaining the younger generation who have recently discovered Elvis, as well as the older generation who grew up with Elvis and fondly remember the influence his music had on our lives.

During the tribute shows, you will enjoy music from the early years, Elvis' movie career, and his fantastic Vegas, Hawaii, and other live performances. Tim "Elvis" Ritzka has been performing as Elvis since 2005, and he has entertained at corporate functions, school events, fundraisers of all types, senior assisted living homes, cinco de mayo parties,  weddings, birthdays, and holiday events.   He performs as Elvis from the 1968 ComeBack in Leather through the Jumpsuit era (1977).  He competes and performs in various Elvis Festivals in Brunswick and Cornelia, Georgia and Cherokee, North Carolina.  He also had the honor of performing for Mac Davis' mother in the Atlanta area.  

Tim says, "With every show or performance, I feel I get better and better in my tribute.  I will continue to entertain as long as there are fans of Elvis who love his music.  I am always 'Taking Care of Business' in a Flash.  If you love Elvis and his music, and if you are crazy about the King, then my Tribute Show is for you.  You will walk away in awe and wonder about Elvis' impact on our lives as those memories are brought back with style.  My goal is to perform a wonderful and fitting Tribute to the King, one of the greatest entertainers of our lifetime, and I give it my all. Please email me with any questions, and check out my videos and photo gallery.  Thank you. Thank you very much."

...There is only one Elvis Presley, and his words are powerful: "Image is one thing, and the human being is another; it's very hard to live up to an image." (Press conference, Madison Square Garden, New York City, 1972) "I am not the King, Jesus Christ is the King, I'm just an entertainer."
