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 at Charleston Music Hall on February 23rd, 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!

Mr. Talkbox (24k Magic) & Cory Wong from Vulfpeck 2/18/18

A former keyboardist for NSYNC, Mr. Talkbox is now making waves on social media with over 12 million views on his videos. His success has put him on the radar for artists like Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, and Rihanna, landing him a spot as The Voice on “24k Magic” and “Loyalty”, as well as R&B diva Avery Sunshine’s 2018 Grammy Nominated Song “Heaven Is Right Here”. He’s got 5 #1 singles in Japan and a Grammy nomination for his collaboration with TobyMac on the track “Feel It”, and now he’s coming to Charleston as part of the Love Funk Tour with Vulfpeck’s Cory Wong. Wong, a renaissance man and “the most famous Minnesota musician you’ve probably never heard of”, is slowly making his way towards the spotlight after a career producing, arranging, composing, and collaborating on shows like NBC’s “The Voice”, with artists like Blake Shelton, Questlove, and Gene Simmons.
