We had the pleasure of receiving the Elton John Tribute Show at Rhodes on Saturday 1st February 2014. The production played to a near capacity house, all of whom enjoyed the show immensely. Iain, as Elton John, didn't fall into the trap of doing an 'impression' of Elton John, choosing instead to concentrate on strong vocals and a relaxed conversation style with the audience that took them along on a journey. He was supported by a group of exceptionally talented musicians who faithfully recreated the music in a tight and vibrant style. In an age of half-hearted and slack 'tributes' this was a breath of fresh air and I would not hesitate to look at a return booking in the near future.
Having worked with Iain Court on a number of occasions I can say he is a pleasure to work with. In my previous roles as Venue Manager and Sound Engineer at The High Barn in Great Bardfield, we have booked Iain, AKA Crocodile Mock on two occasions. Both gigs were sell outs! As Elton John, Iains repartee with the audience is fantastic, music played is flawless. The band he hand picks is simply stunning to hear, and watch. They play all the favourites and more. Far from sticking to the simpler songs, expectations are fully met and as all good entertainers he leaves the crowd wanting more! We did have Crocodile Mock booked for a third time but due to the venue being sold we were unable to put this gig on!
Iain Court performed his Elton John tribute show 'Crocodile Mock' for us at Moonlight Bay in Lanzarote for 15 months. Our venue was sold as an excursion by all the major British Tour Operators and Iain´s Elton John tribute was a major part of this show and he received very good reviews. His uncanny vocals and superb interaction with the audience always left people very happily entertained.
