THE RETURN OF EARLY ELTON: A TRIBUTE TO THE ELTON JOHN, DEE MURRAY, AND
@ ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL STAGE 2 Oct. 11, 2011 9:00pm
featuring Jeff Kazee (piano, vocals), Rich Pagano (drums and vocals) and John Conte (bass and vocals).
As the story goes, Elton's label didn't have the funds to send him out to tour the US with a full band, yet Elton need to promote his imminent releases. Having decided on Dee and Nigel, Elton then rearranged the songs and vocals to fit within the limitations of his new lineup. Suddenly, a new sound emerged that was both raw and poignant.
While Jeff, John and Rich have used rare video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period, they blur the lines between replication and innovation--while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and energy from those early tours.


John killin' it with Southside Johnny !
see television footage from the YES Network's coverage of the annual Mike Francesa bash at Bar A in Belmar,NJ on 8/27/10
the band rocks on "harder than it looks" from their brand new album, Pills&Ammo", and the asbury jukes classic "this time it's for real".
