Remember When Rock Was Young, a celebration of the character, costumes and charisma of Sir Elton John, rockets down the Yellow Brick Road to the Carrollton Center for the Arts, January 14.
“You will not find a better impersonator of the legendary, Elton John, than Craig Meyer,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “If you love the showmanship and music of this iconic actor, you will not want to miss this show.”
It appears that Carrollton didn’t want to miss the show, which quickly sold out.
Craig A. Meyer has worked across all facets of the entertainment industry, including theatre, film, television and music. His film resume includes Disney’s Aladdin and The Lion King, Leatherheads, Joyful Noise and Identity Thief. His television credits include guest starring roles on Necessary Roughness, Will & Grace, General Hospital and Fernwood 2Nite. Meyer has toured internationally and recorded with music legends Barry Manilow and Frankie Valli and has headlined for Princess, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Regent cruise lines..
Throughout Meyer’s career, people repeatedly remarked upon his striking resemblance to Elton John and uncanny ability to sound like the rock and roll legend. Meyer was eventually persuaded to expand his repertoire and began impersonating the Captain Fantastic singer.
Meyer is considered by many to be the best Elton John tribute artist, using his strong vocals, piano skills and a full band with back-up singers to showcase John’s most popular songs, including Benny and the Jets, Philadelphia Freedom, Crocodile Rock, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Candle in the Wind.
The Carrollton show features the Carrollton Youth Chorus and Central High School Choir.
The performance is sponsored by Tritt Realty.
