EP impersonator at my work last night

Sat Jul 16, 2005 5:17 pm

For years we've all read how when EP would come into a room, or perform a concert, that the electricity was incredible, he was that charismatic. I bring this up because where I work, (I deal cards at a casino in Canada) they had some impersonators walking around the casino, just saying hello and mingling with our customers. In total there were five, Lucille Ball, Marilyn, the Blues brothers and of course, our guy.
As I looked around to see what they looked like (with a sick feeling in my stomach) there was a buzz circulating about the EP impersonator. My boss comes up to me and said, "Joe, wait to you see Elvis, he looks great". Though I felt a little better, I now wanted to see for myself. Lo and behold who walks by but Marilyn and Elvis. I don't know who this guy was, but he looked awesome. Thin and fit, the jumpsuit looked great along with sharp sideburns and hair like from 1970. I didn't catch his name but in our cafeteria I overheard several people mention him and how good he looked. This is one of few situations I've ever been around where an impersonator created a positive effect. If this guy created a stir, I can only imagine what it would have been like to have met EP himself, it must have been overwhelming for those who did.

well, I guess we're have to arrange that.

Sign here, my boy. On the dotted line.

Don't worry, I'll type in the rest of the contract at a later date.

Do you know what the impersonators first name is? I saw one about a year and a half ago his name is Justin, but I cant remember his last name. I think he works the legends show in Branson now but had been perfoming at the Elvis-O-Rama in Las Vegas. This kid does a very good job, he perfomes as Elvis in the 50s & 1970 Vegas. He looks pretty sharp.

I didn't catch his name but I will try to find out. This impersonator didn't actually perform a show that night, but they walked around and greeted people. This is not to say that he doesn't sing, that I don't know.

The imposters continue to annoy me......I was going to go to the movies on Saturday night at one of my local, very old fashioned, movie theatres, but when I went to check on the times of the movie, I found that there was an Elvis imposter there that night instead of the usual $6.50 movie. ....Instead I went to the more up market theatres, paid $12.00 and saw 'Bewitched'...what a complete waste of money....so I can still say that Elvis imposters still have no endearing qualities to me...


Carolynlm, they annoy me as well. This guy just happened to look sharp which was a change for once.
