There is no other performer who looks and sounds so much like Elton John, nor any tribute act that provides the experience of being at an Elton John concert the way Gerald Brann and Yellow Brick Road do. Brann not only bears an uncanny resemblance to the international superstar – complete with gap-toothed smile and many of his mannerisms – but he recreates Elton John’s vocals and playing to a tee. Brann captures the essence of the piano man donning replica costumes and Elton’s trademark sunglasses. A trained jazz pianist, Brann has been a lifelong Elton John fan, and his admiration and love for the music comes shining through as he performs one hit after another with remarkable likeness to the pop icon. The band evokes audience participation throughout the show – whether singing along to “Rocket Man” and “Your Song,” swaying to “Candle in the Wind,” or hopping and bopping to “Crocodile Rock.” This is more than a tribute; this is a recreation of one of the most loved formers of any generation, Elton John.
