India Electric Company**** “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.” – The Telegraph

**** “Their reeling, spinning sound corroborates the content of their songs which appear to be describing a life alive with motion. They are altogether a good thing, busy as rush hour but full of light.” – The Independent on Sunday

Sometimes folk, sometimes not. India Electric Company use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and urban alienation to end up with something “quirky and glittery – a veritable musical magpie’s nest.” – Mary Ann Kennedy, BBC Radio 3.

After releasing their debut debut album The Girl I Left Behind Me in 2015 they began extensively supporting and accompanying Midge Ure throughout Europe. They performed live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, as well as playing the likes of Glastonbury Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival. Currently they are embarking on their first tours of Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Ireland to coincide with the release of their latest recordings.

“Fresh and gobsmacking!”BBC 6 Music

Ultimate Elton – the leading Elton John tribute

Ultimate Elton – the leading Elton John tribute

Ultimate Elton Ultimate Elton – the leading Elton John tribute comes to Cardiff

Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Sir Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.

Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, ‘Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band’ present an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists – performances that also often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales!

Paul as Ultimate Elton received the ultimate accolade recently when he was asked to perform with his band at the 90th birthday celebrations of Elton John’s very own mother- Sheila Fairbrother. Among the guests which included close friends, relatives and celebrities was Kiki Dee who sang the classic “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ with Paul and the band. Paul says, “It was a fabulous night, and one I’m sure we will remember for many many years!”

Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band are now much in demand at festivals and theatres throughout the UK and beyond. They are certainly one of the top tribute acts working on the circuit today and this has recently been recognized at the recent National Tribute Awards, run by the influential ‘The Agents Association’ of Great Britain, who awarded the band ‘Official UK No 1’ for performances as the ever popular Elton John Band!

Quotes:

“Hi Paul

Just wanted to say a big Thank You for the gig on Saturday at my party. You were sensational and everyone was just amazed and enjoyed it all so much. Do say a big Thank You to the lads for me for doing such a good job. They really are great musicians and you all deserve a lot of praise and good fortune…Everyone loved you all and are still raving about it all.

Best wishes to you and the band” Sheila Farebrother (Elton John’s Mother)

“I was at the real Elton’s first rehearsal with Nigel and Dee before his first gigs back in the 70’s. This band has all the raw energy of that early line up. Quite simply the best Elton tribute you will see or hear anywhere!” Stuart Epps, Record Producer.

“Blimey, he’s got it down, band are great too. How are his tantrums?” Clive Franks, Elton John Record Producer and Elton’s live sound engineer for over 35 years

“Looks great and sounds great…The best tribute that I’ve seen!” Bob Halley, worked with Elton for over 30 years
