One of America’s primo tribute bands, Yellow Brick Road – a Tribute to Elton John, will dominate the stage at the McEvoy Theater on the New Hampton School campus in a benefit for Lakes Region Community Services at 7:00PM on Saturday, June 18th. This high energy reenactment of everything you have ever seen or heard of Elton John’s legendary staging and music will come alive for you and your friends in this tribute to a living artist.
The group’s leader, Gerald Brann, IS Elton John in vocal, performance and instrumental brilliance. Every detail of an actual Elton John concert is present: white piano, flamboyant tailor-made costumes, glasses and the huge range of songs. Honed to perfection and officially endorsed by the International Elton John Fan Club, this tribute band performs up and down the Eastern part of the United States, as well as performing in Las Vegas as part of the British Invasion show and with the Augusta Symphony before an audience of nearly one thousand people. Traditionally, tribute bands bring to life beloved music and musicians of the past and this rendering of Elton John’s music is famed as one of the best.
This is the fourth “We Care” concert organized by Temple B’nai Israel of Laconia in which the net ticket proceeds are donated to a local and deserving non-profit. Event Chairperson Stu Needleman says, “We’ve sold out every show that we have organized due to the talent of our scouting team and its leader, Ken Goodman. On this occasion, the event will be held in a larger venue and as always, the ticket price includes high quality home baked refreshments and beverages. The music of Elton John appeals to everyone and every age group, and Yellow Brick Road will perform hits from Sir Elton’s huge body of work from rock that will move your body to ballads that will touch your heart. We know that the community will support this great cause, while having an amazing and fun evening.”
