We also will be wrapping one of the trailers this year and are looking for businesses that would like to sponsor it. You can contact MJ Kramer at MJKRAMER287@GMAIL.COM.
The initials T.C.B. stand for Taking Care of Business, which is what Elvis Presley called his band. The letters appear as a logo, or emblem, along with a lightning bolt. This emblem was used in several pieces of Elvis’ custom jewelry including his famous T.C.B. ring and necklace.
Taking Care of Business was a mantra and a point of pride for Elvis Presley and his entourage, known as the Memphis Mafia.
If you haven’t noticed yet, our equipment crew wears black shirts with TCB and a lightning bolt on the back. I think this entourage should be known as the Marching Mafia. Now, you know what the shirts meaning is! We all put a lot of heart and soul into this band!
Have a great week,
Secretary, GCHS Band Aid Club
