Hi Paul

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 x

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.

Hi ya Paul Just to say all the best with your tribute to Elton show, I will catch you and the band hopefuly soon.

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 (www.stuartepps.com)

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.

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'!!

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.

Hi Paul,

Just a quick one to say thanks for all your efforts leading up to the weekend. Your performance went down a storm and we’ve had lots of people saying they were thoroughly entertained, so thank you and congratulations. (Saracens v Harlequins, Wembley Stadium)

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.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for performing for us yesterday, you made the evening really special. We had so much great feedback from attendees…in future if we are to receive any band requests we will definitely mention how great you and the band were...

Chelsey Raysbrook, Conference and Hospitality, Watford Football Club

Had the pleasure of seeing Ultimate Elton and the Rocket Band last night at The Hawthorne Theatre and what a fantastic show it was.
The band was introduced on stage by Stuart Epps who had worked with the real Elton, he stated 'quite simply the best Elton tribute you will see or hear anywhere' and he was not wrong.
'Elton' then came on stage in a pink suit and silver sparkly shoes with an umbrella!
The choice of songs spanned 40 years of albums from ballads such as candle in the wind to the upbeat I'm still standing and crocodile rock which got the audience on their feet and clapping along .
The show was in 2 halves with a break in between and was worth every penny, there was plenty of introductions to the songs and banter with the audience.
The Rocket Band were fab and also deserve great recognition .
Please do try to see this tribute act as they are certainly one of the best I have seen and would be great if they would return to Hawthorne Theatre again!

Dear Paul

Just a quick email to say that everyone loved the band on Saturday.  I have heard nothing but praise since you performed and it was a brilliant evening. It was also great to see such a cross section of the village enjoying themselves, young and old. We also raised a considerable amount of money for charity. I hope you also enjoyed the experience.

Thanks again. Please pass on our best wishes to the band.

Dear Paul

We have had so much feedback from our guests about what a wonderful evening we had ... largely due to you, I must say.  We shall certainly keep you in mind for future parties ... unless you become too famous in the meantime and we can't afford you!

With best wishes, Janine and John Glen

What a great night we had due to the superb performance of Ultimate Elton at our party on Saturday. Anyone looking for a live band to hire, look no further!

Thanks very much for Saturday, absolutely fantastic. Everybody said what a great act and had a wonderful time. As for Heather she was so pleased.

Many thanks again

Best Elton tribute act EVER!!

Hi Paul

Just wanted to thank you so much for making my wife’s birthday party so memorable yesterday.  Our friends were amazed.  You were so good – not just the way you sounded, but your look, clothes and even mannerisms were down to perfection.  It really was very entertaining and well delivered and created the atmosphere for a fun party never to be forgotten.

Paul (Oct 2013)

We're back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your act on the evening of our wedding. You were brilliant and we have had constant comments from people saying that you were fantastic as Elton, and also a lovely guy as Paul afterwards!! We feel that it really got the party started as people were on the dance floor all night after your act. You really did contribute to making our day perfect and we really appreciate it. Being a massive Elton John fan I do appreciate the quality of your act! Many thanks and kindest regards

Hi Paul,

Just a note to say thank you so much for your wonderful performance yesterday.  We've booked a tribute act to headline the show every year for the last 5 years and the consensus was that you were the best by some distance!  Goodness know how we will match you next year!!!!  It can't have been easy performing in that heat either.

Thanks also for being so professional. courteous  and easy to deal with.  We really couldn't have asked for anything more.  

I hope you enjoyed the event and thanks once again for a wonderful performance.

Best Regards,

Fantastic show, everyone commented how great “Elton” was, had everyone up dancing, real rocking show, having had seen real Elton all around the world over the last 35 years and have a trip to Las Vegas organised for October to see Elton’s new show could not believe his mannerisms was Elton to a T.  

Colin Clarke

I personally cannot thank you enough for coming along to the event that I had organised and lending your support for this great charity. You played a big part in helping me raise £7000 for Children In Need and you were a pleasure to meet…

All of the feedback that I have had from the staff of the Eden Centre, family and friends that were there on the day was fantastic and that your performance was brilliant…

So many people have said to me that you would have thought that the real Elton John had come along to the event. You look and sound exactly the same as Elton and would definitely book you again as you are just as entertaining as the real thing but without the tantrums…

I think that Elton would be very proud to see you doing a tribute to him, as you do it in a very professional and convincing way... 

Dave Goodchild

What can I say about his Wycombe Town Hall gig last night other than He WAS Sir Elton, playing in a party atmosphere. Brilliant! He will go far. One more thing to do before you die - see the Ultimate Elton! 


Paul was fantastic at our charity night. He was very entertaining with an amazing likeness to Elton. We all had a wonderful night, down to Paul.
Thank you. 


I've been a fan of Elton John for over 35 years and have seen him live on numerous occasions. Saw Paul for the first time in Iver last night at the Swan. His repertoire is quite outstanding and included many of my favorite early songs like Skyline Pigeon. Fantastic night keep rocking Paul 

Mike Kennedy

Thank you for your great performance on New Year, what a fantastic evening. Elton would be proud. Thank you again for such a great evening and we look forward to working with you in the future 

Andrew Walters

Paul(Elton) is a true gentleman, friend and a great performer. I can't recommend him highly enough. 

Ian Wagge

Fantastic performance and better than the real thing!! We had a great time dancing and singing along and you worked the crowd a treat with your excellent banter THANK YOU!!
