I did an Elvis tribute as a part of my show for many years, and I finally retired the jumpsuit after my house gig at Church Street Station ended in 1993. I was never really an "Elvis Impersonator", but rather just a big fan who enjoyed singing his songs and playing dress-up in the jumpsuits. In fact, Elvis was just a small part of my show, but it was the part that everyone always waited for, and I always enjoyed it. I brought the "Ricky King" show back in 2002 for Elvis's 25th Anniversary, again in 2009 @ The Cheyenne Saloon, and a final time in 2012, when I then passed the torch to my five year old son, Albert.
Alas, "Ricky King" has finally left the building.....Thank you, thankyaverymuch!
