YELLOW BRICK ROAD A tribute to Elton John

There is no other performer who looks and sounds so much like Elton John, nor any tribute act that provides the experience of being at an actual Elton John concert, the way Gerald Brann and Yellow Brick Road does. Brann not only bears an uncanny resemblance to the international superstar, complete with his mannerisms and gap-toothed smile, but he meticulously re-creates Elton John’s vocals and playing to the letter. To truly capture the essence of the piano man, Brann dresses in custom-tailored replica costumes and Elton’s trademark sunglasses
