Taking care of business

Regular price £0.00

Elvis Presely, Taking Care of Business private commission and the painting is 30 x 24 inches acrylics on canvas and is a one off original as with all commissions.

The initials TCB. stand for "Taking Care of Business," which is what Presley called his band when he returned to the concert circuit in 1969. The letters appear as a logo or emblem, along with a lightning bolt, which means "taking care of business in a flash." This emblem was used in several pieces of Presley's custom jewelry, including his famous TCB ring and necklace. "Taking Care of Business" was a mantra and a point of pride for Presley and his entourage, known as the Memphis Mafia. And, you'll even see the logo when you visit Graceland.

After a decade of making movies, Presley returned to live performing in 1969. His return came during the “68 Comeback Special.” Along with backup singers and other show members, the large backing band that would follow Presley on his 1970s string of tours, including stints in Las Vegas, would become known as the TCB Band.
