- John Rowlands, World Famous Rock and Roll photographer who photographed everyone from Abba to Led Zeppelin who was hired by RCA in 1972 to photograph Elvis concerts. He is a split second away from the real Presley
- Bill Morgan, famed North Beach Leather of California founder who dressed Iconic Rockstars including the late Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janice Joplin. Morgan also made several of the outlandish outfits Presley sported during the seventies and was so impressed with Thane’s Elvis tribute he named a coat that he made for Elvis the Thane Dunn Superfly jacket.

His portrayal of Presley is eerily close onstage and it’s like he is channeling the King in front of your very own eyes. He loves to interact with the audience and is a hit everywhere he performs
