Born and raised in Salt Lake
City, Utah, Kerry began performing as a magician and
musician at an early age. After graduating from high school,
and while serving a mission for his church in Australia, he
added ventriloquism to his magical and musical performing
skills. After college, he
married, and with his wife, Carla, joined a USO tour, performing
his variety act all over the world.
Featuring a dummy who
did celebrity impressions that included Elvis, an agent
remarked on how much Kerry's voice sounded like Elvis' and
suggested he do an Elvis act. Kerry shaved his beard and dyed
his hair black; thus began his Tribute to the King that
has delighted audiences around the
world for over 30 years. He has performed in over 36
countries and for every venue imaginable.
Kerry makes his home in Orem, Utah and travels thousands of miles each year, performing his
variety act and/or Tribute to the King. He is often seen on
cruise ships traveling to Alaska, Hawaii, China, Mexico, South
America, and the Caribbean.
