Jonny Lyons & the Pride offer an endless buffet of favorites from Doo-Wop, Motown, Rock & Roll and more, spiced with legendary solos and sauteed with captivating showmanship. It's a sumptuous feast!



I have been wanting to see JONNY LYONS and THE PRIDE for the longest and am so happy I was finally able to do so Friday night.


How entertaining this live band is with their focus on rock n roll, such as Elvis, Ray Charles, Jim Croce, Johnny Cash, Chris Stapleton to name a few.


To watch their lead vocalist, Jonny,  wooooo the crowd with his talent, resemblance to a youthful Elvis Presley, and the unbelievable amount of energy he gives out exciting the crowd, as well as Max the Sax who has such a way with playing the sax in the most au naturale manner that is definitely a sight for sore eyes, along with an amazing drummer who doesn’t miss a beat and gives it his all, to the guitarist, who knows his skills, and is the mastermind for the band, and of course the bassist, who becomes one with the bass embracing the music.


To see this one-of-kind  band is was so well worth it and they really connect with the crowd making it even more enjoyable. KUDOS to this wonderful group of musicians who are so approachable!



Watched them last night at the house of music they are amazing and work so hard to please the audience. They go above and beyond !!! Thanks guys for an amazing show. We will be following you so we can come out to watch you again .

We saw them at the Arcada Club this last weekend for the first time. The band was amazing, so full of energy, fun and played a great range of music. Definitely looking forward other events we can see them at!

If you are looking for a great night of music, then you must see his show, I can not say enough great things about this band. You will not be disappointed.

I hired Jonny Lyons for my sisters bachelorette party. She and I are both massive Elvis fans. HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Jonny is not only one of the best Elvis impersonators we've ever seen but also an insanely talented performer and musician. He showed up on time, came with 2 outfit changes and brought all his own equipment. Sound was amazing. We didn't have to worry about a thing. I cannot recommend this guy enough - he'll be a hit at any occasion. Total crowd pleaser. Can't wait to see him live again!

Wow, wow, wow!
Thanks sweet Di for turning us all onto Cash and Elvis!
Both great and omg, Jonathan!!!
How you nailed Cash's mannerisms, voice, look, I swear your Johnny Cash's son, hahaha.
You took me down memory lane growing up with my Dads band playing Cash etc and great memories from little girl and still.
AND ELVIS what memories!
What a quality family, Father, son and Mother team!!!
Know how much joy you bring to so many keeping legends alive, Cash and Elvis :)
Thank you so much!
I've seen personable bands, but NEVER as personable as you all are! 
You truly enjoy your fans, and draw them into your act and show! See you soon, can't wait!!!

FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL, AMAZING!!! There really are no words to adequately describe how much me and everyone at the party enjoyed the performance by Jonathan Lyons (young Elvis). During the performance I overheard people saying "he's really good". People were up dancing and having a good time. Even the next day, people were still talking about what a great party it was, specifically because of Jonathan. Age range at party was 15-70 and EVERYONE enjoyed it. He is a very talented and polite young man. We found out he even appears as Johnny Cash! Would love to book Jonathan as Johnny Cash for another party but then again, he was just so good as Elvis!
