Elton John tribute show returns to Roxy

Memphis pianist and vocalist Jerred Price as Almost Elton John will soon take the Roxy stage with his red baby grand piano, “Ruby,” and his band, The RocketMen.

Price will perform at 7 p.m. April 23 at the Historic Roxy Theatre in Russellville. The show is a tribute to Price’s friend, the legendary singer, songwriter, pianist and composer, Sir Elton John.

Price performed at the Roxy for the first time Sept. 25, much to the delight of the large crowd in attendance.

“We’re pleased to have Jerred Price coming to Russellville to perform again,” said Susie Malone, president of the Franklin County Arts and Humanities Council. “His previous show here was a tremendous success, and I hope everyone will come out to share in the excitement again.”

Price is a frequent performer at Lafayette’s Music Room in Overton Square in Memphis. He has performed at the Beale Street Hard Rock Café and the Memphis Botanical Garden’s Live at the Garden event, which boasted an attendance of more than 500 at the Radians Ampitheatre.

He was the featured artist in New York City for Elton John’s 60th birthday celebration on the “Lunch Around the World” cruise, which helped raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Lafayette’s website describes the show as “one of Memphis’ hottest acts” and “the closest thing to Elton John” and notes Price and his band perform one of the few Elton John tribute shows in the country.

Proceeds from the show will benefit the ongoing maintenance and restoration of the Historic Roxy Theatre. Tickets are on sale now. All tickets are reserved seating, ranging from $20-$35. To purchase tickets, call 256-577-9932.
