"Elton Rohn is the best tribute I have ever seen in the industry!
When someone can bring that sacredness of sound and tone, as if it were the person they are paying tribute to, you have found the essence and spirit that was born separate from the composition.
Elton Rohn is the essence of Elton John."
Debra De Stefano
Entertainment Public Relations and Author, Chicago
"I film hundreds of bands. This is without question,
simply the best tribute act I have come across"
"Watching Elton Rohn and his excellent band on stage pounding out so many classic cuts and rare gems from those essential 70's albums is a sheer delight, the stunning musicianship and the array of Elton mannerisms put this remarkable tribute act way up there in the big league"
Paul Russell, Musicologist

"Most entertaining tribute band we have ever seen."

"As President of Elton John's Canadian Fan Club for 7 years and having enjoyed a 30+ year Radio Broadcasting career I've been fortunate enough to attend a lot of musical performances and shows as well as seeing the "Real" Elton John many times in concert around the world. Elton Rohn puts on a concert "the next best thing to the real guy"...a truly outstanding tribute to Captain Fantastic. His band is exceptional and it's easy to think when you're at the show that Elton himself is there".

"The Elton Rohn band put on a fabulous show in Barbados. Absolutely everyone in attendance at the spectacular Barbados Yacht Club venue had a great time. Ron was first class in his tribute to the one and only EJ, and the band members were all excellent musicians.
On a personal note it was an absolute pleasure working with this very professional group. Not to mention being a group of down to earth gentlemen. We would surely love to work together again.
Good luck to Ron and the band. Congratulations on the success of your first visit to Barbados "
Dean Emil Straker
"Knocked it out of the park. An unbelievable night. The band was spot on. the band, the Orchestra, so good. Rohn you were incredible Channeling EJ not trying to be EJ. So much respect. As I take my EJ very seriously and not big on tributes of my favourites but you changed that .. Can’t wait to see you again. Thanks so much"
“Elton Rohn delivers for us year after year. They have played here for several years now and that attests to their popularity and professionalism. Always one of the largest crowds of the season and definitely a crowd favorite. Elton Rohn is certainly one of the top tribute shows around!"

"Elton John Tribute a stunning show…”
The Muskoka Weekender
"The musicianship. The voice. When I closed my eyes I thought I was at an Elton John concert, and when I opened them I was thoroughly entertained. Elton Rohn is a superb tribute act and a top-notch artist in his own right."
Liz West, Host ZoomerRadio
"Without a doubt, Elton Rohn is the Best Tribute Experience in Canada!” Elton Rohn (Ron Camilleri) has put together a truly outstanding musical event. Every member of the band is of the highest musical caliber and it comes across in every single performance. Every note is played live with no tracks and it really pays proper respect to the music of Elton John. As a marketing firm that helps raise funds for many charitable groups - having a high calibre show like this involved really helps to guarantee success across the board. Since first seeing the show, after many recommendations, we have booked Elton Rohn into every single Ontario marketplace we operate in, which has totalled over 15 amazing concert events thus far with more to come!”

Hey there, Matt here from the Fleetwood Mac Experience. You all are one of if not the best band I have seen. Your musicianship, chemistry and stage presence is second to none. Plus you are some of the nicest, kind and considerate people (and musicians) we have met. It was an absolute honor to have been on the bill with you all... thanks for the great day. Hope to see you down the "Yellow Brick Road" soon

Wow!!! Great Show Ron! Congrats! You were amazing.
What a show. We really enjoyed it.

Breakfast Television, Toronto
"We were amazed, and came away feeling like we just experienced a 1970’s Elton John concert! The seven-piece ELTON ROHN band played every note live and sang in full four-part harmony.This amazing band faithfully re-created the grand scope of an Elton John live show."
Biz X Magazine, Windsor
“Yes, this is a tribute band, but so right on the money you forget you're not watching the real thing... It is difficult to categorize what they do as a "tribute". It's more like a time machine that opens a window on this music when it was new and fresh, and Elton was a man on a mission... Within minutes of the first song, you'll forget you are watching a tribute"
"Fabulous… the most authentic live Elton show in the world.. Bravo!"
Rick Rock, Simply Queen
"Go see the Elton Rohn band. Sometimes "Rohn" (a very witty take on the lead singer, Ron Camilleri's real name) is sometimes precisely spot on as Elton and other times he's not. But it's only because they have taken the art of tribute way beyond mimicry. Rohn's band and singing are just plainly one of the most rocking performing groups I have ever heard in my life. They play like the world's gonna end tomorrow. Tribute or not, the music is showcased here in a style and aesthetic reminiscent of the legend himself (and I've seen the real thing in concert) and is one of the most spectacular and fun shows you'll ever see”
Donald Quan, award winning composer
“Watching tribute artist Elton Rohn at Meridian Hall. Seeing Ron Camilleri channeling Sir Elton tonight and singing way better than the real Elton did at his last Toronto show last month.
Rohn’s band and orchestra are truly a world class live band playing interesting arrangements with zero backing tracks to supplement. They grooved better than the real Elton John band did at the ACC imho. I am floored by Rohn’s musicality and energy - He is such a humble dude to boot”

Elton Rohn at Meridian Hall 10/10

"Sure hope you make it back to Cobourg in the near future. I was one of the ticket takers at the door. I have seen all the concerts and I can say Elton Rohn was the best by far. Good luck in all your performances”.
''Elton Rohn is the next best thing to taking a time machine back to the heyday of the Captain Fantastic creative fire. Spot on high energy performances of the legendary songs that made Elton John a music icon. The look, the sound, the attitude and the unbelievable piano playing…Elton Rohn delivers!''
Rialto Theatre, Montreal
"Elton Rohn is absolutely the best Elton John tribute in North America. My audience was standing and cheering after almost every song. He has the look, the voice and the piano chops to make you believe you are seeing the real Elton John."
“Elton Rohn last night at the Park Theatre in Holland, it seems there’s a lot of pent up EJ fans out there because this tribute band from Toronto brought out a crowd!"
Elton and his group of fabulous musicians had one of our largest audiences ever on their feet and singing to the over 40 years of Elton's greatest hits.”

“No one tributes Sir Elton better.
... Why do I love shooting musicians? Here's why. The power house rhythm section of the Elton Rohn band gettin the groove on at Deerhurst. When highly talented musicians are caught in the act of enjoying what they do, all I have to do is press the shutter button. They make the picture, not me”
"I saw Elton Rohn last night at the Seneca Queen Theatre in Niagara Falls, ON. What a great tribute to Elton John! A much enjoyed show by all in attendance! They played 2 sets, about an hour each. Heard a lot of great songs! If you like Elton or just enjoy music, I highly recommend you go see Elton Rohn next time they are around!"
Joel Naphin, Concert Photographer
"I actually felt as though I were at an EJ concert back when EJ was in his prime. And his band is outstanding, too – these guys are serious musicians. I will make a point of seeing them whenever they are in town. These guys know how to put on a FANTASTIC show!!! "

"I have been booking bands for over 20 years and the Elton Rohn tribute band is very talented, highly professional, so easy to work with and the show is awesome. They are a great crowd pleaser and our audience went home wanting more"
McMorran Place Theatre, Port Huron, Michigan
"Ron Camilleri's ability to transform into Elton John was uncanny..."
"Elton Rohn is fantastic. Ron effortlessly embodies the voice, piano skills and stage antics of Sir Elton. The stellar supporting cast of musicians complement him instrumentally and vocally, and in a spot-on manner rarely heard. You literally feel like you’re hearing and seeing the real deal. Ron and his mates are very personable as well, welcoming of audience participation…even taking special requested songs and executing them with the same passion and accuracy as his regular setlist. If you love the music of Elton John, Elton Rohn is simply a must-see"
