Kraig Parker’s award winning tribute to Elvis Presley, “The King Lives,” is a world class show that has astonished audiences for 20 years. It will be presented by the Entertainment Series of Irving on Saturday, January 7, at 7:30pm in the Irving Arts Center Carpenter Hall, 3333 North MacArthur, Irving. Parker will perform with his very own 10-piece group, the Royal Tribute Band. He is personally managed and will be introduced by Charles Stone, Elvis Presley’s former tour producer from 1970-1977.
Parker’s powerful voice, electric moves and tasteful charisma will leave you ‘all shook up’ and screaming for more! This electrifying entertainer has performed from Vegas to London and is not to be missed. Critics have claimed “this is as close as it gets!” about his performance.
