'Remember when rock was young' at Mable House

AlmostEltonJohn2The South Cobb Arts Alliance and Atlanta Pops Orchestra will present Craig A. Meyer in Almost Elton John: "Remember When Rock was Young" 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 1, at Mable House. Meyer has worked in the entertainment industry, making strong impressions in theatre, film, television and music. His striking resemblance to Elton John and uncanny ability to sound like him eventually persuaded Meyer to begin impersonating the rock and roll legend.

This spectacular musical journey celebrates decades of chart topping hits by Sir Elton John including "Benny and the Jets," "Philadelphia Freedom," "Crocodile Rock," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and "Candle in the Wind."

Ticket prices are $50 for a table, $25-$35 for terrace seats and $15 for lawn. Mable House is located at 5239 Floyd Road, Mableton. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster by clicking here. For more information, visit mablehouse.org.
