Kenny Metcalf as Elton The Early Years Testimonials

"Kenny Metcalf as Elton is truly top notch. He and his band are the utmost professionals and their ability to get a crowd energized and excited is amazing. I’ve had the pleasure of booking Kenny on many occasions. His LIVE National TV performance on AXS TV’s The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands was so good that he was invited back for a second show! 

When he performed at The Hollywood School House for their charity gala, he had the crowd on their feet including celebrity guests like Caroline Rhea and David Chokachi. 

And not to bury the lead, but when Kenny Metcalf did a private birthday performance for Academy Award Nominee, Amy Adams, she literally gasped, “Oh my god, Elton is here!” And then she was told, “Nope, it’s Kenny Metcalf!”

Whether your event is for 50 people or 15,000, the showmanship of Kenny Metcalf as Elton is exactly what you need. The band's gear is authentic, their sound is precise, and their dedication to their product is sincere. Make sure you book Kenny and the band!"

- Katie Daryl

Executive Producer & TV Host / AXS TV

"Witnessing his performance is like re-living infamous shows such as the Dodger Stadium show in 1975, where I performed with Elton. I'm proud to have performed several times with Kenny. Being on stage with him is surreal."

- Caleb Quaye

"Another incredible show! Thank you for setting the standard for entertainment at the Montgomery Village Concert Series each year!"

- Mike Waterman

"You're brilliant Kenny! You know that I manage an Elton tribute in the UK, but you are really great! Your piano playing and voice are superb. You’ve really got him off! The same energy, sound and mannerisms of the early years of Elton."

- Stuart Epps

Producer Dick James Music / Elton's Personal Touring Assistant

"I brought Elton to the U.S. with Russ Regan and Pat Pipolo to perform at the Troubadour in 1970, when we all worked at UNI Records. I saw Elton then for the very first time, and 49 years later (in 2019) I just saw him again tonight... by Kenny Metcalf as Elton."

- Rick Frio

"Kenny, You honor Elton John with your performances. Every time we see you it is spot on. I was lucky to have been a Promotional Manager for Rocket Records in the seventies. I was there when rock was young. Sir Reg is proud of you!"
