"Tom put his 10,000 hours in at our humble bar, like The Beatles did in Hamburg" Café da Ponte, Lisbon

"Tom Cridland's Elton John Band are the best Elton John tribute act and covers band in the world." Tom Cridland



Tom has an unparalleled love of the Rocket Man's music and wearing sunglasses indoors. Tom plays all of Elton John's best loved classic hits, album tracks, deep cuts and fan favourites, including Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man, Candle In The Wind, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, I’m Still Standing, Crocodile Rock and Your Song.

Setlists can be customised to include your favourite Elton John songs, no matter how overplayed (there is no such thing as overplaying Elton John's music) or obscure. 

Defiantly old school, Tom puts the music first, with extraordinary attention to detail. In contrast to most of the modern day music industry, Tom Cridland's Elton John Band play 100% live, with no backing tracks or lip-syncing at all. Indeed as Elton himself put it, "I think everyone who lip-syncs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot".

Tom Cridland and His Elton John Band are available to play parties, corporate events, arenas, stadiums, dive bars, weddings and funerals.

Tom is campaigning for the Elton John's actual band, i.e. Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson and the late, great Dee Murray, to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You can read more about Tom's friendship with Nigel Olsson here
