Philadelphia Freedom: A Tribute to Elton John is the ULTIMATE and most REALISTIC Elton John tribute currently touring. Doug Delescavage is Elton John as he was in his 20’s, full of joy and unlimited energy, commanding his top notch band through all the hits of Elton’s career. Doug Delescavage owns the stage with his domineering fashion sense rivaling no one but Mr. Captain Fantastic himself. We hope to see you soon!
Bernie Gavlick is a true artist. Bernie nails Dee Murray’s stage presence, fashion and bass playing to a T. His incredible ear and sense of melody and rhythm provide that driving energy of Elton’s music that we all know and love.
Doug Delescavage is Elton John reborn. Doug is a Berklee College of Music graduate who has been a lifelong Elton John fan emulating him since childhood. Doug’s love for Elton’s music shines through every time he hits the stage.
Aaron Eldred is a hard working and truly talented multi instrumentalist and singer. Every band's greatest asset. A lifelong Elton fan as well, his understanding of rhythm, melody, and placement locks in the fullness of Davey Johnstone's guitar sound.
Karl Rucker is an extremely talented guitar player with an even greater personality. His sense of tone, style, melody, and creativity would make Davey Johnstone proud. He has a great way of mixing his originality with that of Elton's music.
Jen Hunter is a true professional musician. Her passion, talent, hard work, and dedication is truly inspiring. While the rest of us drive that rhythm and backbeat, Jen is playing all those beautiful synth and orchestral melody lines we all remember from Elton's music. She has a great ear and way of recreating those iconic sounds.
Mike Shaw is another incredibly talented multi instrumentalist. He is the rock that holds us all together. Coming from many backgrounds and genres of music, you can hear that reflect in his playing and style. He is always there to adapt to whatever we are playing, but also take charge and keep our groove strong and energetic. He would make Nigel Olsson proud.
