Yellow Brick Road – A Tribute to Elton John-Wellmont Theater, Montclair, NJ – June 17, 2022
An amazingly authentic musical and visual experience. Gerald Brann (“Elton”) and the Yellow Brick Band (Rich D’Aigle on guitar, Mike Tobias on guitar, Mark Kavanaugh on bass, Kevin Ostrowski on drums) brought the piano, costumes, lights and sounds of Elton John to the Wellmont Theater providing a high-energy two set show. Everything about this full concert tribute (19 songs!) was presented with great attention to detail creating a true Elton John concert experience.
The first set opened with Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding and ended with Burn Down the Mission. In between were fan favorites I’m Still Standing, Rocket Man and Candle in the Wind.
The second set opened with Bitch is Back and ended with Pinball Wizard. In between were some more favorites Tiny Dancer, Bennie and the Jets and Crocodile Rock to name a few. The crowd was singing along and dancing all night! The night ended with an encore of Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting. What a great night of songs!
