"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. He and his band are available to play parties, corporate events, arenas, stadiums, dive bars, weddings and funerals.
Tom plays all of Elton John's best loved classic hits, album tracks, deep cuts and fan favourites, including Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, Bennie and the Jets, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, Your Song, Philadelphia Freedom, I'm Still Standing, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Crocodile Rock, Funeral For A Friend / Love Lies Bleeding, Levon, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, The One, Little Jeannie, Daniel, I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues, Nikita, Burn Down The Mission, Honky Cat, Kiss The Bride, Are You Ready For Love?, White Lady White Powder, Teacher I Need You, Sad Songs (Say So Much), The Bitch Is Back, Your Sister Can't Twist (But She Can Rock'n'Roll), Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me and Someone Saved My Life Tonight.
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 (let alone the covers scene), Tom Cridland's Elton John Band play 100% live, with no backing tracks or lip-syncing at all.

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.
