What to Expect
The Elton John Legacy’ is an incredible celebration of Elton’s musical career spanning 5 decades.
The energy packed live performances include amazing video and outstanding lighting that reflect the changing faces of each of Elton’s musical periods. The performance concludes with an emotional and joyous finale, an experience in itself and not to be missed.
There is no greater compliment to any performer than to be celebrated by a tribute band. Not to be confused with a cover band, a tribute band is a band who attempts to emulate in every way the band they are in tribute to. This includes reproducing the music as accurately as possible to the original. The overall idea of a tribute band is to create the perfect atmosphere and to give their audience the opportunity to see and hear what the real band sounds like, an opportunity that maybe some of them would otherwise never have had.
To tribute a band and reproduce the quality of sound and performance, such as Elton’s, that has taken decades to perfect, requires bundles of enormously unique talent. ‘The Captain’ Donnie Leafloor is a man in possession of such a talent. His amazing ability to recreate both Elton’s vocal and keyboard skills so brilliantly can leave you questioning whether you are listening to Elton himself.
‘The Captain’ is backed by the creative and powerful six piece ‘Captain Fantastic Band’ who themselves also never fail to reproduce faithfully the full purity of the music we have come to love on all Elton John recordings. Each and every one of our audiences can be assured that they will depart our performances having been thoroughly entertained during their fantastic journey down rock music memory lane.
The dynamics of ‘The Captain Fantastic Band’s’ stage shows and the range and versatility of the music, has opened the doors to many different types of venue, from college halls to stadium arenas, ‘The Elton John experience’ can perform to music lovers of every age group.
For Donnie and the band, the satisfaction of performing the music they love in tribute to an artist they respect, comes from knowing that their audience have come to hear the music of one amazing artist, rather than a mix of cover music of which only a fraction might appeal to some of the audience.
Tributing one of the greatest singer/songwriters in modern music history can understandably be very complex and demanding at times, but for both the band and the audience alike the rewards are out of this world!
Any lover of Elton’s music will know that there are many songs in his back catalogue that need no more than a man and his piano, then there are many others that can incorporate many intricate interrelated parts including full ensembles of instruments and vocals within them.
We can comfortably say that since launching ‘The Elton John experience’ we have covered most of these bases.
But you have to see it, and hear it, to believe it…
So why not come out to one of our shows and enjoy a great celebration of the man and his music.
