Elton John

July 13, 2015 •  Martyrs', Chicago, IL

For our next outing, we're heading back to the early years of one of the most engagingly flamboyant characters in rock.  We'll track him down in the days before the fanciful eyeglasses, the platform shoes, and the colorful costumes.  Those were the icing on the cake anyway (though they did make the performances more fun).  From his very debut, this was a singer and pianist who had a powerful musical vision.  And on two of his earliest albums, he sketched it out with bold, confident strokes, aided by a lyricist who wove tales about life's underdogs and outlaws that captured our imagination.  Join us as we play tribute to Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water.
