Elton JohnPerformed by Rus Anderson
I am an entertainer from Glasgow, Scotland & have been singing since age 4. My full-time music career began in 1997 when I was selected as lead singer for a Virgin Records showcase band. I was then approached by Britain's Pantheon Theatre Company, which won me touring lead roles that included Benjamin in the Andrew Lloyd Webber production of 'Joseph & The Technicolor Dreamcoat' & Seymour in 'The Little Shop Of Horrors'. Having performed in Europe, I moved to the USA in 2003. As well as performing at many local singer/ songwriter venues, I freelance as a film editor & visual fx artist &frequently compose songs, jingles & voiceovers for many TV projects. I put my extensive live & theatrical experience to work nightly, performing as a young Elton John in the tribute show 'Rocket Man'. This has earned me an endorsement from the official Elton John Fanclub & praise from many prestigious clients, including The Elton John AIDS Foundation. In the past year alone, I have appeared in all four corners of the USA & I love being able to keep the 70's Elton alive by re-enacting his charisma, vocals, piano playing & costumes – the ones we all know & love!
I also wear items onstage that Elton actually wore – including his actual signature white framed, red lens Dennis Roberts glasses (worn at most of his 1973-74 concerts including the Hollywood Bowl!). In any given show, I wear anything from Swarovski Crystal jumpsuits to White Ostrich feather Jackets. I regularly headline many prestigious venues, including BB King’s, House Of Blues, Hard Rock Live, Belterra & Mohegan Sun casinos, as well as countless theaters, clubs & city events.
