Elton, through the years: Tribute to a genius

Submitted to Prospector

Aaron Patrick will pay tribute to the genius of Elton John Saturday night, as Sierra Knolls Winery and Bear River Wine Tasting present a tribute concert.

By capturing the excitement and intensity of the shows in John’s hey day, Patrick will perform note for note as the songs were played by the artist himself, taking you on a musical journey with the Rocketman and his decades of hits, including “Crocodile Rock,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Candle in the Wind” and more.

“Elton through the years” is a show celebrating the more than 35 years of Elton’s music, starting with the early songs from Elton John, “Tumbleweed Connection” and “Don’t shoot me – I’m only the piano player” through “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and up to the later hits from “The Lion King” and the album with Leon Russell, “The Union.”

This show is packed with not only the hits like “Tiny Dancer” and “Bennie and the Jets,” but fantastic overlooked songs like “Burn Down the Mission,” “Madman Across the Water” and “Take me to the Pilot”.

For diehard fans, there is also a segment where audience members can request any song from Elton John’s repertoire.

BAM DAZY BBQ wagon will be on site serving beginning at 5 p.m, offering delicious tri-tip and pulled pork sandwich plates, including coleslaw and baked beans for $8.

Seating will be “dinner theater style” under a huge tent. If you prefer, feel free to bring your own picnic.

The popular Bear River red and Bear River white wine will be available by glass or bottle outside (cash only outside sales). Other fine wines will be available by the glass or the bottle inside the tasting room. No alcoholic beverages may be brought onto the property.
