J & A Entertainment

Junior Talley has been impersonating Elvis for 15 years, saying he became an 'instant Elvis fan' at the age of three. 

Now he performs it all from 'Jailhouse Rock'' to 'Heartbreak Hotel'' to 'GI Blues', 'American Trilogy', 'Burning Love'' - all of it. 

'I try to bring back a memory, and take people\'d5s minds off their work, their day to day life, all their troubles - to take people back where they want to be.' 

Junior has taken first in some of the largest contests in the world and has been said to be extremely close to the real thing in sound and look. He is a 8-time world finalist at the 'Images of Elvis' competition. 

He is one of the few impersonators that perform all eras of Elvis\'d5s career. He adds a style and charisma mixed with humor to all his shows. Junior does shows anywhere from birthday parties to his latest performance at Graceland for the 29th anniversary of }

{\plain\f21\fs24\cf1 Elvis\'d5s death. Which he was invited back to next year. 

He has also preformed several times at the La Harpe Davier Health Care Center and is planning to be back in December. He performs in 90-100 local nursing homes doing anywhere to 100-150 shows a year in nursing homes and over 1500 shows all over the US. 

He also enjoys working with all the handicap kids organizations and benefits. 'It is so fulfilling to watch them have as much fun as they do when I am able to bring Elvis to them'. 

Alisa Talley was new to the entertainment industry in May 2004. She liked to sing, but it was Junior that pushed her to perform. 

After they were married he asked her to pick an artist and she chose Patsy Cline. Unlike Junior, who is an impersonator, she is a Tribute Artist. 

I can't be Patsy, and I believe that no one ever will, but if I can help her memory and music live on, then maybe I can make sure that the next generation will know great music when they hear it.' 

Alisa was raised on old country music and fell in love with Patsy. She may be new to the stage but she performs her 'Reflections of Patsy' with style and grace. She has also just released her first CD.
