A Rock n’ Roll archaeological dig is underway, as Early Elton Trio pays tribute to the Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson trio tours of 1970 to 1972.

Early Elton features Jeff Kazee of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes (piano, vocals), Rich Pagano of The Fab Faux (drums and vocals) and John Conte of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes (bass and vocals). Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly sourced video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period—blurring the line between replication and innovation—while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and Rock & Roll energy from those early tours.

The Gospel/Funk of "Take Me To The Pilot”, the soulful storytelling of"Levon", "Amoreena" and "Madman Across The Water”. From the monumental epics of “Burn Down The Mission" and “60 Years On” to the sublime “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” and folksy “Country Comfort”. Additionally, “Your Song” and “Tiny Dancer” are unequivocal modern Pop/Rock standards. These are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton songbook. Early Elton has also performed the albums Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across The Water and the live concert 11 - 17 - 70 in their entireties.

Early Elton Trio is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period—arguably, his finest in terms of material, production and performance.
