What to Expect
All of the enthusiasm, energy, costumes and excitement of an Elton John show.
Even if you only like one Elton John tune, go see the show and you'll find that Brian Harris gives new life to all of them. Excellent show Brian...... your piano mastery is always amazing to hear and second to none!" - S Royce, a fan
“You play the piano JUST like Elton plays it!”. Dwight Icenhower, award-winning Elvis Tribute Artist
When you think of of exciting rock & roll, furious piano playing & jamming and a distinctive tenor voice singing unique lyrics, you think Elton John. Of course! And in his own musical travels, Brian Harris over the years has developed an energetic performing style that easily transfers into an Elton-like show that is second to none (besides Sir Elton himself!).
Brian posesses the keyboard mastery of a concert pianist (with a degree in classical piano performance from Hartt School of Music). Yet he has experience as and the sensibilities of a jazz pianist, but grew up loving rock & roll! This unique blend of technique, experience and musical understanding give him the ability to play the piano just like Elton plays it.
Brian constantly works at perfecting the repertoire, vocal phrasings and vocal nuances of Sir Elton. The response to “Simply Elton” has been overwhelming because it is the whole package: a gifted, polished musician singing and playing at such a high level while bringing a seemingly endless supply of energy to the stage for each performance.
“Simply Elton” is a tribute to the live performances of Sir Elton John, and as such includes the excitement of incredible piano jamming, exciting rock & roll vocals, wild costuming and live-wire action on stage that invites the audience to become part of the show.
