New York, NY (Top40 Charts) A Rock n' Roll Archaeological Dig, as Early Elton Brings to the Stage the Soul and Spirit of Elton John's Stripped-Down Trio Tours of 1970 to 1972

Jeff Kazee, Rich Pagano and John Conte Mine Soundboard Recordings, Bootlegs, Early Live Videos and Even Elton's Own Home Demos, to Capture the Spirit of This Period

Elton John had to restructure his album arrangements because his record productions were very big, but his small road budget only allowed him to tour as a trio from 1970 to 1972

A Rock n' Roll archaeological dig is underway, as Early Elton pays tribute to the Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson trio tours of 1970 to 1972.

Early Elton features Jeff Kazee of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes (piano, vocals), Rich Pagano of The Fab Faux (drums and vocals) and John Conte of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes (bass and vocals). The trio of respected artists deliver a historic recreation and interpretation of Elton John's music, based specifically on the superstar's live trio tour arrangements from the early seventies. No wigs, no costumes - just three great musicians performing the early music of a seminal artist.

As the story goes, Elton's label didn't have the funds to send him out to tour the U.S. with a full band - yet Elton needed to properly promote his imminent releases. Having decided on bassist Dee Murray and Nigel Olson on drums, Elton rearranged the songs and vocals to fit within the limitations of his new lineup. Suddenly, a new sound emerged that was both raw and poignant.

Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly sourced video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period-blurring the line between replication and innovation-while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and Rock & Roll energy from those early tours.

Upcoming Tour Dates:
June 8 House of Independents Asbury Park, NJ
June 22 Stage 1 Fairfield, CT
June 28 Daryl's House Pawling, NY
June 29 City Winery Boston, MA
June 30 City Winery NYC
A series of Fall dates will be announced soon. Stay up to date on Early Elton shows, here: http://earlyeltontrio.com/shows.html

More about Early Elton :
The Gospel/Funk of "Take Me To The Pilot", the soulful storytelling of "Levon", "Amoreena" and "Madman Across The Water". From the monumental epics of "Burn Down The Mission" and "60 Years On" to the sublime "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" and folksy "Country Comfort". Additionally, "Your Song" and "Tiny Dancer" are unequivocal modern Pop/Rock standards. These are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton songbook. Early Elton has also performed the albums Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across The Water and the live concert 11 - 17 - 70 in their entireties.

Early Elton is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period-arguably, his finest in terms of material, production and performance.

Consistently playing to capacity audiences in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area-Early Elton have recently been expanding their reach, adding shows in locations from Boston down to Florida.
