This is a typical band that plays all the time by the fountain in Central Park. As the days get hotter I imagine there will be even more of these.
But that’s not why I posted. Although I’ve talked about them before, it’s the Elvises that hang out there that really got me curious. At first I was only mildly curious, but now I really need to find out all about these guys, because I see them all the time, but none of my students seem to have ever seen them. These guys dress up in black jackets with really big Elvis-like hairdos, and bring amplifiers over by the fountains so they can play this old school music (or sometimes not) but it’s always really really loud. But their main activity is dancing really really badly. Trust me I will take a bunch of photos really soon, because I need to find out more. Until then, though, here are a couple other photos I saw while I did a cursory search.
