Elton John, Reggae, Cover Bands, and Puns?

Posted by on Sat, Jan 5, 2013 at 10:15 AM

(Nectar) Oh, hey, did you see "Elton Jah" and think, "Whoa... is that an Elton John reggae cover band?" WHY YES, YES IT IS. Sometimes, the world decides to take four things that can be the best or the worst of all life's miraculous offerings—in this case, Elton John, reggae, cover bands, and puns—and stir them up in a big ol' pot. What comes out? Well, the dudes in this Spokane band are really serious about their jams, and they have an elaborate (fake) backstory and insane costumes. You can see them play their reggae "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" on YouTube. Also, the lead singer got the idea from his high-school friends' band Dread Zeppelin, which is also nuts. It's January. Try something new!
