A tribute to Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson trio tours of 1970 to 1972 is coming to Daryl's House in Pawling New York on June 28. A not to miss show starting at 8 p.m. with the doors opening at 5 p.m. for those who would like to reserve tables and have dinner before the music starts. Jeff Kazee, Rich Pagano and John Conte bring the Early Elton music to the stage by recreating the historic interpretation of the music from the early seventies. The trio has decided they will not wear wigs or costumes but concentrate on the music and give you a glimpse into the passion for performances of the time period. 

Early Elton is put together by Jeff Kazee on piano and vocals, Rich Pagano on drums and vocals, and John Conte on bass and vocals. The trio has researched videos, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demo's to shape their vision of Elton's Trio of Elton, Dee, and Nigel. There are many stories how Elton's label didn't have the funds to do a tour of the U.S. with a full band, but Elton needed to promote his releases. He decided to rearrange the songs and vocals to fit within the line up of Dee on bass and Nigel on drums, a new sound emerged. Early Elton has used this new sound to inspire and shape their performance.
