A special Rocket Man Elton John tribute show is coming to the Ponoka Golf Course.

Reginald Dwight, aka Elton John, has been a major force on the entertainment scene for nearly five decades. Beginning with his 1970 hit Your Song, Sir Elton John, knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1998, has sold more than 300 million records.

Bringing Sir Elton John’s music to the Ponoka stage is Toronto-based Jeffrey Scott who has been performing the music of the musician for almost 20 years. His Rocket Man show features colourful costumes, skilled piano playing and those distinctive Elton John vocals. By channelling the star’s flamboyant look, style and mannerisms, he makes audiences feel they are in the presence of “musical royalty”. Many say “it’s like seeing Elton John in his prime”.

The Rocket Man musical repertoire is equally entertaining. It features 4 decades of Elton John’s hits. Songs that everyone knows. The show has toured all across Canada, the U.S. And Mexico, in theatres, supper clubs, casinos, stadiums and fairs, including the Calgary Stampede, and has been featured on numerous radio and television shows. The response has always been both loud and positive.

Jeff began playing piano at age 7 and studied at The Royal Conservatory of Music for 11 years. He began playing professionally in the 1980s in nightclubs and piano bars, while working on his Bachelor of Arts degree at York University. Besides being a successful entertainer, he is an accomplished songwriter, musical arranger and recording engineer.

On Friday, April 5th, Jeff will perform at an exclusive dinner show engagement at The Ponoka Golf Club. More information is available by contacting the club office.
