Elvis and Meatloaf
Several years ago, I happened to see a van proudly proclaiming ELVIS AND MEATLOAF in big red letters, hawking an act claiming to be the world's first and only combination Elvis and Meatloaf impersonators. And of that, I had little doubt.
I always wondered whatever happened to them, and just now, I inadventently stumbled onto their website, elvisandmeatloaf.com. Turns out Kentucky's Ersatz Elvis and Make-believe Meatloaf are still plying a good trade in the doppelganger business. In fact, the men, known as the Perkins Brothers, have expanded their operation to include Buddy Holly, Dean Martin, Roy Orbison, Rod Stewart, Hank Williams, John Lennon, George Jones, Neal Diamond and more. (Can imitations of Alice Cooper, Tiny Tim, Jerry Lewis, and Ferlin Husky be far behind?)
Check out their website to hear mp3 samples of the Perkins Brothers in each of their various incarnations!
