Dan is the lead singer of Elton Dan & the Rocket Band. He has been playing the piano since he was 10 years old. His first concert he attended was the Orange County Symphony, but the concert that made an impression on him was seeing Elton John live at Caesar’s Palace and seeing Paul McCartney at Arrow Head Stadium. From childhood, Dan’s hero in music was Elton John for both the wonderful music he made and the humanitarian contributions the band honored. Dan has persisted in keeping the same traditions in the band he created to honor his music hero Elton John and the legacy and culture of what the Elton John Band stands for.

Today, Elton Dan and the Rocket Band play songs for 7 of the Elton John Albums, including crowd favorites “Amorrena”, “Funeral for a Friend”, “Bennie and the Jets”, “Bitch is Back”, “Sweet Painted Lady”, “Pinball Wizard”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, and “Levon”. Dan has seen Elton John in concert 8 times to honor the rock legend.

Karen has been performing with her sisters since age 9. She grew up in a family with an affinity for classic country music. When the Sonny and Cher variety show as aired, Karen was so excited to hear another style of music, she sat in front of the TV daring anyone to change the channel! Her love of music continued on through high school when she learned to play piano and trombone. Later she sang with the Capitol City Symphony Choir in addition to delivering singing telegrams and performing for weddings. Karen began singing with her first band in 1988. She continued to perform with duos and bands throughout the country including acts located in Texas, Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. She most recently fronted an all 80s pop band and a tribute to Heart & Pat Benatar. Karen currently provides background vocals and harmony for Elton Dan & The Rocket Band.

Cher-ished began in Illinois in 2007, at the request of a promoter.  Fans are astonished at Karens vocal & visual likeness to the living legend, Cher! Performing as Cher, she has shared the stage with legends such as The Drifters and tributes to Elton John, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Rod Stewart & Stevie Nicks. Performing the hits and gems including The Beat Goes On, Strong Enough, Half Breed, Believe, and If I Could Turn Back Time, Cher-ished has headlined festivals and concerts throughout the Midwest. Her Costumes & vocals will have you believing you are seeing the real “Cher” on stage!
