Really impressed by the set at BURES, and very pleased to see you using some real strings as well. What would have made my evening....is at least a token musical acknowledgment to Roy Wood!
Admin Reply by: eloencounter
Thanks very much Archie, pleased you enjoyed it. In tribute to early ELO including Roy Wood we normally start the show with 10538 Overture, but for the festival we could only include all the most popular and upbeat tunes. In the full show we also have Ma-Ma-Ma Belle and Do Ya, harking back to the earlier works. We would love to add more Move songs to the show, and are considering a medley including California Man, Blackberry Way, Fire Brigade, Brontosaurus, etc, so watch this space. We share your appreciation of Roy Wood and the huge impact he has had 🙂

Wonderful show at Brentwood Theatre yesterday. I didn't realise how many ELO tunes I'd heard before. Each track sounded like the original as far as I could tell. I stood a few feet away from Jeff Lynn when he played with Idle Race at a school concert in the late 60s. Steve - the small techie.
Admin Reply by: eloencounter
Thanks very much Steve. So many great ELO songs and they are all there in people's memories, even if they haven't heard them in quite a while. Would have loved to have been at that school concert, that's a memory to treasure. Thanks for all your help on Sunday Steve, the whole band really appreciates it. Hope to see you again before too long 🙂

Caroline Grantham Caroline Grantham from Colchester wrote on May 22, 2017 at 6:14 pm:
Being a big fan of ELO, I decided to check out the ELO Encounter when they played at the Alderman Blaxill School in Colchester, my home town. I have to say I was really impressed with their authentic sound. It was just like going to an actual ELO gig but with fewer people onstage to create that sound. They put on a great show with background screen shots and the lighting was very effective too. Any ELO fan should definitely get along to their gigs. Superb.
Admin Reply by: eloencounter
Thanks so much for coming along and hope you enjoyed yourself, that's what it's all about. Very pleased you thought the sound was authentic, that's definitely what we are striving for, trying to re-create the music as accurately as we possibly can.
Caroline Caroline from Colchester wrote on May 21, 2017 at 7:51 pm:
I saw the band ELO Encounter recently in Colchester and being an ELO fan of many years, I have to say that I really enjoyed their show. Their sound is very authentic to that of the original ELO. I was impressed with the graphics and lighting too. A truly great show. It was just like seeing the real thing.
Admin Reply by: eloencounter
Thanks very much Caroline, that's very kind of you and pleased you enjoyed yourself. Always great having long time ELO fans come to see the show 🙂

Saw ELO Encounter for the first time last Friday night at the Quay Theatre Sudbury and thought they were a excellent tribute band.If you closed your eyes they sounded so much like Jeff Lynne. The music and acoustics were excellent.I do hope they come back to Sudbury again soon.

Thanks very much Stuart. The whole band had a fantastic time, great theatre and a brilliant audience, can't wait to return 🙂

Neil Evan Neil Evan from Braintree wrote on March 5, 2017 at 7:01 pm:
Great entertaining show last night at Braintree Arts Centre, talented artistes playing the music and lyrics of Jeff Lynn, an absolutely amazing performance, not so much a tribute but more a true representation of the man and his music. We saw ELO in Hyde Park, in 2015 with the BBC Philharmonc Orchestra, and last nights peformance captured that performance and more. Can't wait to see this band again.
Admin Reply by: eloencounter
Thanks very much Neil. We're jealous about Hyde Park, we would have loved to have been there. See you soon.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks and well done for the impressive show you put on in Witham last night. I bought the tickets for my father as it was his birthday and he is a huge ELO fan and you made his day. I had mentioned on a Facebook post that my dad was going on his birthday and it was a fantastic gesture from the band to remember this and sing him happy birthday. Its fantastic to see a group of people doing what they live for and love, it was fantastic watching you. You have given my father back his love for live music and he has picked up a leaflet of upcoming events at Witham and he wants to see you again. I cannot thank you enough for the efforts you put into this show as you made everyone's evening!!

Thanks David, so pleased your Dad enjoyed the evening and has his love of live music back 🙂
Amanda Smith Amanda Smith from Mersea Island wrote on October 2, 2016 at 11:09 pm:
Saw this gig at Halstead. Not really a tribute, that cheapens what this band do, which is to transport you back to those days. So sensitively and authentically done, at times it felt like it was actually ELO being mirrored up there on the stage. FanTAStic, the whole evening, great entertainment and atmosphere as well as brilliant musically. And the film-work going on on the stage creatively enhanced the whole thing. Hoping to go again in December, this could become a habit... Thankyou guys...
