The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center presents the 7th Annual Girls’ Day Diva Festival featuring Craig A Meyer – Almost Elton John and opening act Harmony on Tap – HOT on Thursday, March 3, beginning at 5 p.m.
Harmony on Tap – HOT opens at 6:30 p.m. followed by Craig A. Meyer Almost Elton John in a musical journey celebrating the decades of chart-topping hits of Sir Elton John beginning at 7 p.m.
Throughout Meyer’s career, he has been repeatedly approached about his striking resemblance to Elton John and his uncanny ability to sound like the rock-and-roll legend. Today, Meyer is considered to be one of the best Elton John tribute artists in the market. The show is a celebration of the character, costumes and charisma of the famed pianist and singer.
