â I recently had the pleasure of seeing Kenny Metcalf perform his show “Kenny Metcalf As Elton” at NAMM 2012. I was amazed at how well he does Elton, he sounds just like him vocally and his piano playing and stage antics, along with an excellent band are so accurate you wonder if you havenât been transported back in time to some of the historic concerts such as Dodger Stadium in 1975!
For any Elton John fan that likes to take a trip down memory lane and visit Eltonâs music of the early 70âs, this is the show to see! It brought back some fun memories for me as one who was there from the beginning! -Caleb Quayeââ
