Some people have been curious as to what my moniker "The Jumpsuitman" means... Well, I guess it's is time to reveal it.

For the past 10 years I have been a professional Elvis Impersonator.  I am even better known for the custom tailored Jumpsuits I make for other Elvis entertainers worldwide.  In fact, if you have ever been to a "Legends" show in Vegas, on a cruise or at Myrtle Beach...  Or watched "The Next Best Thing" on ABC a couple years ago, chances are you have seen one of my jumpsuits in action.

I bring this up now because I will be performing as Elvis at the Good Sam "Samboree" on April 29 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and at the SEBN April in the Carolinas Rally on April 30 at Palmetto Cove Campground in Cleveland, SC.  I can provide details on the Samboree if you want, and details about the SEBN rally can be found in the events section...  And even a couple pics of me.

So there it is.  I am... The Jumpsuitman!

Rarely a dull moment in my world.  In fact, while our bus is being worked on, we are staying with a fellow "Elvis" here in Montgomery who  moonlights as a Montgomery Police officer... Or maybe the other way around.  LOL  Was even able to run sound for him for one of his own shows the other night...
  Since we were here in town.  Grin

Elvis was known more for his airplanes, but he did once own a Flxible VL-100 tour bus.  He also owned a motorhome, I believe a Travco.

That might be the one.  I didn't know that. Seems like somebody would take better care of it if not sell it to someone who could restore it.

"...customized by George Barris"

Cool. Maybe Elvis heard that Barris had built the Munster Koach, and thought that meant he was a bus guy.

 There was an eagle on ebay quite a while back, the seller was another Elvis  and the bus was REALLY decked out in the Elvis motif! Smiley

Marc, I was reading this thread to the boss.You need to know she needs to be around someone for a while to form an opinion about them. But being the Elvis fan she is she said in short order I like that guy. To show you how big a fan she is after Branson last year  everyone went to Carthage for another rally we went to Memphis. Guess who wears the pants in this family.

LOL!!! I know that guy!  He called me last week to try and sell me that bus, and yes... I make his jumpsuits.  His name is Rick.  I actually made 4 of the jumpsuits pictured.  How funny.
