    The Fourth Annual Lunch Around The World Boston Style Fundraiser--All proceeds to benefit The Elton John AIDS Foundation. Introducing Gerald Brann and his band, Yellow Brick Road, the premiere Elton John tribute band! There is no other performer who sounds, looks and replicates the experience of being at an Elton John concert the way Brann and his band do. With an unprecedented nod from the international superstar himself, Brann was granted permission to use Elton John's own orchestral scores to perform with the Augusta Symphony Orchestra. Brann not only looks like Elton--complete with the gap-toothed smile--and has many of his mannerisms, but he sounds so much like Elton it's uncanny. To capture the essence of the piano man himself, Brann even dresses in replica costumes and wears Elton's trademark outrageous glasses. A trained jazz pianist, Brann has been a lifelong fan of Elton's. His admiration for and love of Elton's music comes shining through as he plays one hit after another with remarkable similarity to the famous musician. Brann and his talented five-piece band keep the audience rocking throughout the whole show. Whether the crowd is singing along to "Rocket Man" and "Your Song," swaying to "Candle in the Wind," or hopping and bopping to "Crocodile Rock," they are swept away by the sheer force of the event. Brann and his band have been officially endorsed by Hercules, the International Elton John Fan Club, and have played extensively throughout New England--including The Foxwoods Resort and Casino--to rave reviews. Brann has also performed with the famous British Invasion show (based in Las Vegas, Nevada) at the BelTerra Resort and Casino in Indiana.

    "When Brann is in costume and on stage he IS Elton John..." --Face magazine

    "The band is incredible and Gerald has Elton John down.... PERFECT!..." --Jon James WMME 92 Moose FM
