Hello fellow Elton John fans!
Rus Anderson here, let me introduce you to my Elton John tribute show.
As featured @ Legends In Concert, Hard Rock Live, House Of Blues, Disney, BB King's, & endorsed by 'Hercules - The Elton John Fanclub', The Rocket Man Show is the USA's #1 full-time 70's & 80's Elton John Tribute and sets the standard for world-class entertainment.
Browse my photos & videos. It's hard to go wrong when you have this much experience onstage at your venue.
It's the biggest, most flamboyant Elton tribute in the USA. Many of my costumes were owned by Elton and they are GORGEOUS. I wear his actual glasses, jumpsuits and boots from 1973, as well as his Swarovski-laden tuxedo from 1984! Plus, I'm 34 years old so this is Elton in his prime & audiences go nuts!
My band and I are REAL musicians, our videos are of REAL shows and those are REAL audiences!! - We know because we were there!
Our show is a re-enactment of an early Elton John concert with all the classic onstage antics, 100% live instruments & vocals, faster tempos and various flashy grand pianos.
It is an intense, sincere and magical musical journey. Audiences laugh, cry, sing and dance - not always in that order, whilst having a blast of energy recalling the highs & lows of Elton's career. There are ballads & driving rock songs.
It is a trip down the yellow brick road.
The key to success when hiring a band is knowing how professional they'll look, perform and act when they arrive. In the past year alone, I have performed in all 4 corners of the USA & have 5 star ratings across the board in the USA's many elite talent rating platforms. You're OK with me!
Described emphatically as "A WONDERFUL show" by Mary Mitchell of The Elton John AIDS Foundation, Rocket Man gives an insanely energetic performance time after time, throwing around cool jams such as "Saturday Night's Alright" and "Pinball Wizard", before sending audiences exploding into space with extended 70's instrumental versions of "Rocket Man", "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and "Your Song".
With thousands of performances under my belt ranging from theaters, to hole-in-the-wall biker bars, to festivals, to concert halls, to casinos, to cruise liners & city events, I portray Elton John's intense 70's & 80's concerts down to the finest detail. My crackerjack musicians and I are all ASCAP members & Disney verified. Additionally, all Rocket Man performances are fully licensed & insured.
Again, watch our videos & browse thru our photos.
What you see is what you get... and THAT's entertainment.
