When many people think of Elton John they immediately think of his trademark sunglasses and outrageous costumes. However, anyone who has seen a live Elton John performance knows that it has always been first and foremost about the music.
Tokyo Joe’s – Rocket Man Tribute conforms to the model of a real Elton John concert. While going to great lengths to wear costumes that are exact replicas of those worn by Elton himself, and to entertain visually with state of the art lighting, Rocket Man is ultimately about the songs that are like a soundtrack to the lives of so many people.
Performed by the Columbia, SC based rock quartet Tokyo Joe, Rocket Man is sure to leave every Elton John fan feeling as though they have experienced a tribute performance worthy of the original. Anyone who loves Elton John and his music will love this show!

MachineFunk "Tribute to Widespread Panic" was formed in the summer of 2006 in Florence, SC. The band has toured the southeast for the last five years covering the music of Widespread Panic. Night after night their set lists are never the same, with having over 120 songs in their repertoire you will not see the same show twice. They also include songs from Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Talking Heads and many others. MachineFunk has shared the stage with musicians from The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, North Mississippi Allstars, and Jojo Herman of Widespread Panic. Each show is a musical journey that can't be explained, only experienced!
