From Las Vegas to London, Kraig Parker has been called the ultimate image of Elvis Presley. He has been astonishing crowds for over twelve years with his amazing tribute to the king of rock and roll. All ages are shook up by Parker’s amazing likeness to Elvis in look, voice, moves and stage presence. There is screaming, there is swooning and there is the obligatory scarf giveaway. This exciting performance has left audiences stunned, thrilled and hungry for more.
Unlike many imitators, Kraig hits the stage with a full Las Vegas style show band that is second to none. He has been joined on stage by some of Presley’s original singers such as The Jordanaires, The Stamps Quartet and the Sweet Inspirations. In addition, several of Presley’s original body guards, as well as Loanne Parker, widow of Colonel Tom Parker, have welcomed Kraig as a premier tribute to Elvis and a good friend. Even critics have stated this is as good as it gets…”Elvis would be proud!”
Prior to performing as Elvis, Kraig lead various rock bands and recording projects, but he never seemed to find his niche in the music business until he donned a rhinestone jumpsuit and portrayed the king at an office party. From then on, he knew he was meant to play the role of Elvis Presley. Since forming the project in 1996, Kraig has toured his Royal Tribute Band and Orchestra around the world in major venues, such as sports arenas, concert halls, performing arts theatres, casinos and fairs.
The Times of London, August 2004, hailed Kraig Parker as the world’s foremost Elvis tribute performer.
