Ben Thompson is one of the world’s top Elvis impersonators and got a part, as such, in the latest Back To The Future film. He also won the Ultimate Elvis competition in 2018, which ushered him into the Elvis Presley hall of fame. To describe him as an impersonator is perhaps to underestimate his craft. He is a consummate performer, who packs incredible energy into his shows. In February 2023, he found time in his hectic international schedule to put together a 9-date UK tour, with some of the UK’s top Elvis musicians. Jon had been unable to join him since 2020, due to Covid restrictions, but was delighted to be back on board for the 2023 tour. What a blast! 7 out of 9 shows were sold out and Ben was absolutely on top of his game.
"I’m privileged to have worked with Jon on tour in 2016. His skill on the bass and his vocal talent are exemplary and his work ethic is incredible. He’s earned my respect both as a musician and a person."
Eddie Allen, Guitarist - Marty Wilde and The Wildcats. Ex Editor Guitarist Magazine.
"Apart from being a genuinely lovely guy he is also a top bass man. Check out the JENNER, MELLOR rhythm section on the last OUCH album MEDWAY DOG..".
Clive Jenner, drummer - Groove Armada, Lenny Kravitz, The Proclaimmers, The Freestylers
"First and foremost Jon is an excellent bass player with a superb knack for writing lyrical, melodic bass lines for original material. If you’re playing covers, Jon is not only a quick learner – but more importantly when the parts have entered his mind they stay there and will be delivered consistently at any time under any circumstance."
Preben Raunsbjerg, Producer and guiatrist - James Burton's band
"His bass playing and harmonies are second to none in all the different styles of music that we covered and he is the most honest and hardworking bloke I have ever worked with.”
Kevin Taylor, Ouch!
