Based in Ft. Worth, Texas, Kraig travels and performs with his very own 10-piece group, the Royal Tribute Band. He has toured with Presley’s original vocal groups The Jordanaires, The Stamps Quartet, and The Sweet Inspirations. He has also attended multiple events with Elvis’ bodyguards Sonny West, Sam Thompson, and Dick Grob.

Kraig is personally managed by Charles Stone—Elvis Presley’s own former tour producer from 1970-1977. At an early age, Kraig discovered his singing and song writing talents:

“My grand mother, Ola Parker. sang and played guitar. She knew I loved Elvis and showed me a few of his songs. After I learned to play, she gave me her old guitar, which prominently hangs in my studio to this day. I lead a rock band in high school and a gospel group in college. In the mid 1990’s, I was persuaded to portray Elvis for a retirement party at the corporation where I worked. I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea what kind of reaction I would get: Everyone went nuts and I was suddenly the talk of the company! Soon after I decided to enter a contest on Elvis’ birthday at the Hard Rock Café in Dallas. I won the contest and $500 cash! It was mind-blowing… the fans were totally enthralled and I was suddenly addicted! On a whim, I decided to run an ad in the Yellow Pages. It took off like a rocket and within a few years, I quit my day job to pursue my dream as an entertainer. I met Charles Stone after one of my performances and he offered to manage the show and take it on the road. Together, we created the tour concert for casinos and state fairs and the symphony. It has been a God given career and I owe my success to the millions of passionate fans and ultimately to the accomplishments of music’s greatest icon, Elvis Presley!”
