Originally from Alburtis, ClenRoy Geist began his entertainment career at age 13 by joining his father and older brother as a minstrel show singer in Longswamp.
In 1949, Geist became a member of a local country group, Earl Keller and the Melody Rangers. When one of the end men, (literally the band members who sat at the open ends of the rows) left the group, Keller asked Geist to fill the role of the band’s comedian. Geist accepted and Elmer was born.
