Broadway entertainer Craig A. Meyer has made a name for himself in theater, film, television and music. Throughout his career, however, he repeatedly was approached about his striking resemblance to Elton John and his uncanny ability to sound like the rock ’n’ roll star. Eventually, he was persuaded to impersonate the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer.
This month Meyer will bring his talents to Evans with “Almost Elton John and the Rocket Band.” He will perform chart-topping hits such as “Benny and the Jets,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Rocket Man,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Daniel” and “Candle in the Wind.”
Celebrating the character, costumes and charisma of the famed singer and pianist, Meyer is considered the best Elton John tribute artist in entertainment. With his strong vocals and piano talents, he helps his audiences remember when rock was young.
