If you've ever seen Elton John perform live, it's probably on your shortlist of best entertainment moments. He's flamboyant, he's talented, and he puts on one heck of an energetic show. Chances are good that if someone took you to Almost Elton John without telling you the truth, you'd think you were back at the real thing -- and wonder when the international superstar started playing at smaller venues. Almost Elton stars multitalented singer and pianist Craig A. Meyer, who's toured internationally and recorded with music legends like Barry Manilow and Frankie Valli, and headlined on Princess cruise ships around the world. Meyer's striking resemblance to and uncanny ability to sound like the legendary artist led him to begin impersonating Sir Elton John, and today he's known as one of the best Elton John tribute acts in the industry. See Sir Elton ... er, we mean Meyer ... live on stage when he comes to El Campanil. Learn More

With this delightful multi-media performance celebrating the history of female songwriters from the Tin Pan Alley era, Wild Women of Song, veteran San Francisco jazz and blues vocalist Pamela Rose makes a compelling case for the enduring contributions of women to America’s treasure trove of popular music. Boasting a big, bold voice and blues-infused sensibility, Rose brings a vast array of musical experience to songs by more than a dozen gifted but lesser-known tunesmiths. “Dorothy Fields should be as familiar as Ira Gershwin or Johnny Mercer,” says Rose, a Los Angeles native who first gained notice on the Bay Area scene in the late 1970s through her work with organist Merl Saunders and later with the Motown revue ZaSu Pitts Memorial Orchestra.
Immersing herself in jazz over the past two decades, she’s the rare singer who can belt sassy golden age blues by Alberta Hunter and Ida Cox as easily as crooning a torchy Peggy Lee lament. Completing the package, Rose also possesses enviable songwriting skills, and she throws her own well-crafted originals into the mix.
