New England Elvis Impersonators Itching To Get Back To Business


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) Many industries have expressed despair over how the pandemic has effected their sales, services, and operations over the last year. WBZ talked to members of a troupe more associated with Las Vegas than New England - Elvis impersonators.

"Boston Elvis" Mark Stanzler says business was booming before the COVID-19 era, but quickly took a tumble. As the state begins to reopen, he's thinking about how to interact with the crowd. "I probably won't be able to give out as many scarves...they've got those cannons now, right? Fire a t-shirt out into the crowd, you know? Well, we're gonna work on that for scarves," he said.

Elvis of Rhode Island, Robert Black says crowd memorabilia are the least of his worries. "We gotta hope we don't forget the lyrics...it's been a while!" he said with a chuckle.

Live events have been off the table in Massachusetts for nearly a year, but the impersonators - and many other performers - are getting ready to return to work.
