Upon graduating high school in 2002, Justin Krakowsky wrote, directed, produced and performed his own one-man comedy stage show “The Justin Krakowsky Show”, and used the proceeds to fund the Justin Krakowsky Drama Club Scholarship.
He then attended Rhode Island College studying theater where he continued to perform The Justin Krakowsky Show 3 more consecutive years in a row. This production caught the eye of RI funny-man Charlie Hall, who enlisted Justin as a member of his renowned RI comedy troupe The Ocean State Follies. During this time, Justin could be heard as a regular personality on 94 HJY radio’s The Paul and Al Show, where they would play his song parodies on the air, and occasionally bring Justin into the studio for live performances.
In 2008, Justin progressed to the live audition tapings of America’s Got Talent where he performed one of his popular comedy routines in front of David Hasslehoff, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan.He then came home to a new opportunity – becoming a member of the Sultans of Swing. Justin has been the frontman of several rock cover bands including a Guns N’ Roses tribute band. He has a commanding, animated stage presence that really captivates the crowd and draws them into his performance. While his niche is rock n’ roll, he has a natural talent to mimic musical artists and can sing all genres of music just like the record, from the 1950s to current Top 40.
Justin is a great addition to The Sultans and knows how to get the crowd excited and keep them on the dance floor. In addition to working with The Sultans of Swing, Justin runs a mobile DJ company with fellow Sultan Erika Van Pelt. He can be found Wednesday nights co-hosting RockStar Karaoke with Erika at The Scorpion Bar at Foxwoods Resort and Casino singing all his favorite songs!
