Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as 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.
A lifelong Elton John fan, Paul first started singing and performing Elton’s songs whilst studying Performing Arts at University in the early 1980’s. With an extraordinarily similar singing voice to Sir Elton’s, Paul is able to draw on an amazing back catalogue of hits to produce a truly wonderful celebration of Elton’s music. Paul’s performances often feature some of Elton’s actual clothes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales.
Elton John’s extraordinary repertoire means that Ultimate Elton can serenade an audience over lunch or dinner with some of the most beautiful ballads ever written, including Your Song, Candle in the Wind, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, Sacrifice and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word. He can also change the pace and get people on the dance floor with classics like Crocodile Rock, I’m Still Standing, The Bitch is Back and Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting. Ultimate Elton’s challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!
If you are planning an Event, Party or Celebration and you love Elton’s music, or indeed if you want to provide entertainment that will appeal to all ages, then look no further than Ultimate Elton!
Paul can be booked as a solo performer or can be booked with a full band - as Ultimate Elton & The Rocket Band
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 - Love Sheila Farebrother (Elton's Mum)
Paul Bacon’s tribute to Elton John was outstanding. His voice, mannerisms and costumes were very similar to Sir Elton John himself. Paul played a great selection of ballads and upbeat songs to entertain the attendees to this Cabaret event night -Jonathan Bradwell, Marketing & E-Commerce Manager - The Earl of Doncaster Hotel
Having been Elton John's manager for 28 years, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I saw Paul walk out to take the stage, momentarily believing it was Elton himself, and when he started to sing I was even more convinced. I defy anyone to not believe that Paul Bacon is "the Ultimate Elton" tribute artiste - John Reid
Hi ya Paul Just to say all the best with your tribute to Elton show, I will catch you and the band hopefuly soon - Love Kiki Dee
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
Paul's impersonation is uncanny and the band is superb. I once sat in with them on Part Time Love and although I had helped to write it as well as organising and singing the backing vocals on the record, it soon became apparent to me that they knew the song a whole lot better than I did - Gary Osborne
Blimey, he's got it down, band are great too. How are his tantrums? Paul you were 'Fantastic', so good to meet you....keep on rockin'!! - 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
Thank you so much for appearing at my golf classic. Knowing Elton John, I was amazed at your performance it really felt as though we were watching the real thing, you were so convincing in every way. All my friends and guests were highly entertained. Your show really finished the night off for us. Congratulations and again many thanks - Russ Abbot Wembley Stadium
The Man, The Legend, Musical Genius, who needs 'EJ' when you have Paul serenading you! A Wow of a show, Spellbinding, Magical. The man is great! - Warren Clarke, Actor
Just wanted to say what a great night we all had at Stoke Park on Thursday night. I thought you were fantastic and loved singing with you. So many people came up to me and said that they loved it. Having sung with the 'Real Elton', I have to say that it doesn't get any closer than your performance! I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend you - Bobby Davro
