Jon Baunsit – A Unique Elvis Tribute Artist


Jon Baunsit – A Unique Elvis Tribute Artist


Jon started his tribute to ELVIS in 2001, debuting with Memories Productions “ELVIS Birthday Bash”, January 6, 2001 at the Victoria Inn in Winnipeg, Manitoba.


Since then he has performed all over North America and the Caribbean. He’s gone to Tampa and Disneyworld, Orlando and Disneyland, in Anaheim, California and Las Vegas at the Imperial Palace. He performed at the Caribbean Cruises, with the Dawn Princess from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Barbados then to St Lucia, St Vincent, St. Marteens, St. Thomas, St Johns, Tortula, the British Virgin Islands, and the American Virgin Islands.


He performed in Vancouver, Victoria in some of the seniors and Nursing Homes in Ueclulet and Tofino as well as Toronto, Mississauga. He has been to the Collingwood Annual Elvis festival which is held every last weekend of July.

In Manitoba, he has been to Portage La Prairie, Brandon, Birdshill, Tuelon, St Andrews, Lockport, Selkirk, Altona, Gimli, and Roland. He has been a regular at the annual Elvis festival in Gimli.


So far he has been entertaining regularly in local Winnipeg Seniors and nursing homes, Retirement Residences, Sports Events, Bars, Hospitals, Charity, Political, and Fundraising events. He performs in different occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, Baptisms, Valentines, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, even funerals and other religious holidays.


He is a hit with Seniors and Retirees since they are of the generation of the music of Elvis. He performed at a new immigrants school, which is appropriate, since Jon was an immigrant himself.


Jon Baunsit is known by his stage name “ELVISAYA”. It is a contraction of ELVIS and VISAYA. Jon comes from the Visayan Islands in the Philippines. The people who come from that region are called Visaya. Jon introduces himself as The Filipino Elvis of Winnipeg. Some people mishear him so they call him the JALAPENO ELVIS. He doesn’t mind because he is HOT!!!! And UNIQUE!
