ROCKET MAN: ELTON JOHN TRIBUTE
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!

Cory Wong might just be your new favorite guitar player.
The Minneapolis-based musician has put in his time as a versatile composer, arranger, producer, and collaborator, working on shows like NBC’s “The Voice,” playing alongside Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, Questlove, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Bootsy Collins, Blake Shelton, and most recently joining with the fast-rising funk band Vulfpeck as a touring and session guitarist.
His expert playing and diverse influences have kept him in demand around the world and around the clock, but he remains loyal to his Midwestern home. Dubbed “the most famous Minnesota musician you’ve probably never heard of” by Minneapolis’ The Current, Cory Wong is finally preparing to jump into the spotlight with his new album Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band.
Cory Wong is also the jedi-master secret weapon of Vulfpeck‘s most recent studio release The Beautiful Game. Vulf-fans recognize his name from the final track of the album (titled “Cory Wong”) or perhaps from his recent performances with Vulfpeck (he’s performed with them on every date since the album’s release). He’s the subtle hero who can take a guitar part and turn it into his own magical Vulf-y thing.
“Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band” released on September 22, 2017.
