Joel was born with a similar timbre to Elton John and just like his hero began piano lessons as a child.

A decade on cruise ships as a professional musician saw him hone his craft and in the ensuing years he has performed worldwide as Elton John.

With one of the hottest bands in the UK comprising of hand picked musicians at the top of their game and a camaraderie that is evident in both their playing and performance on stage.

The band members have performed with the Johnny Cash Roadshow, Tears for Fears, We Are the Champions (West End Show) and many more. The show features both live and studio arrangements of Elton John's performances carefully arranged by experienced Musical Director Martin Bentley.

Show producer Ash Sethi ensures that both the performance and staging are of the highest level in order to further the impression of watching the real Elton John live.

The challenge of writing a show that covers five decades and multiple costumes was blending it all together.

This has been achieved with strong imagery throughout the show aided by the use of projections both on the screen and even the piano itself.

Recreated audio snippets add to the atmosphere of each decade and combine with the visuals to set the perfect backdrop for each era of Elton John's long career.

The show takes you through an incredible legacy of great songs and music and features all the hits including Crocodile Rock, Rocket Man, Candle in the Wind, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, Sacrifice, Daniel and The Circle of Life.

Fans can also join the Elton John vocal workshop before the show at 4pm.

I'm Still Standing, the music of Elton John is on Sunday, November 14 at 7.30pm
