Early Elton

BIO

Early Elton is a Tribute to the Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson trio tours of 1970 – 1972 featuring Jeff Kazee of Southside Johnny And The Asbury Jukes (piano, vocals), Rich Pagano of The Fab Faux (drums and vocals) and John Conte of Southside Johnny And The Asbury Jukes (bass and vocals).
With only two years since its inception, the Early Elton show is playing to capacity audiences in theNew York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area.

While Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly scoured the net for rare video, bootleg recordings and even Elton’s own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton’s Trio Period, they blur the line slightly between replication and innovation — while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and energy from those early tours.

Early Elton is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period-arguably, his finest in terms of material, production and performance.
