Great night at The Y tonight! Band members are all talented musicians! Jack, great keyboard and versatile voice! Henry...lovin those high notes and bass guitar! Dacre, you were fab on those drums! Martin, hope your own 'encounter' with the bus injuries soon heal. What a guitarist! Jasmine, fantastic and mesmerising and that voice! You were all brilliant. Thanks for a great night!
Brilliant show at epic last night, seen you a few times including Sudbury just recently, and looking forward to diss corn hall later in the year. The stage and set up was good which made for a perfect gig, and of course I like shouting ' go Henry ' just before he sings rock aria !! Pity we couldn't meet you after the show last night as usual. Keep up the good work.
Saw the band last night at the gorleston pavilion theatre and they fantastic. Would go to see them again.thanks for a great show.
Great concert at Bandstand last night. Crowd really enjoyed it. Really impressed with your performance.
I saw you at Aylesbury in early jan 2020. I thought you were brilliant, thanks for a great evening
Just watched you guys at the Hippodrome Darlington, absolutely amazing, so many hits, I haven’t sang so much for ages. Well done, beautiful sound. Look forward to seeing you again Rgds Paul
ELO Encounter you're an absolute credit to the music of Jeff Lynne and ELO …..we people up here at Stoke love you 👍👍👍
Saw ELO Encounter tonight at Eleven in Stoke. Absolutely fantastic! What a brilliant tribute to ELO. 😃
Thank you for such a fantastic gig at The Fisher Theatre in Bungay last night. We are still buzzing, absolutely brilliant. Love Lynda and Valerie x
Another fantastic show at the fisher theatre Bungay last night. Yvonne, Tracy and myself had a great time. You guys get better and better.
Second time seeing you at Eastbourne ! Was bloody brilliant ! See you next time ! We danced all night!
Fantastic show in Birmingham last night well done.
Hi all, brilliant show tonight at Queens theatre Hornchurch. I love Jeff Lynne and ELO, such a huge fan. You have all done him, and the rest of ELO proud. Your music and production is spot on. I was so happy seeing the audience giving you's so much appreciation, especially at the end...standing up (me included) giving you all a deserved ovation. I will not hesitate seeing you all again when you all are here or near playing. I think you are the next best thing to ELO...good luck. What a brilliant tribute act you all are, wow!!!
Saturday Night Kings Hall 20/07/2019. My Wife and I went to see ELO Encounter last evening their third time of appearing and out third time of going to the show. Thanks again for a fantastic evening its always a great night and one that we never forget, Such a fantastic Band and so much the real ELO great timeless classics keep it up and Please do come back we want to see you over and over again/Beethoven. We still have old 45s and LP's plus stacks of CD's. Played everyweek. Didn't get to say
Went to see ELO ENCOUNTER last night in Frinton, what a brilliant show, was the first time of seeing them, can't wait to see them again!
Thank you for a great night here in Frinton last night at McGrigor Hall, what a fab band you are. Brilliant music, and good fun, such a happy atmosphere, had forgotten how many great ELO songs there are. Trip down memory lane but music is timeless. Once again, thank you, feel lucky to have discovered brilliant local talent.
We saw you on Friday night at the Eastbourne bandstand and thought you were fantastic. You battled the chilly wind in the open air admirably and this didn't spoil the sound at all. It was great to see Xandadu sung by your 'Olivia' and a great rendition of Twilight, one of my all time favourites amongst all the other tracks. Hoping to make it back to see you again upon your return in August!
Great band. Great night.
Just home from a great night. Fabulous musicians, great sound, great voices. I am a huge fan of ELO, I loved it!!! Go and see them you won,t regret it .
Went to see these guys on Saturday and it was really good. The crowd enjoyed themselves and the selection of songs was fantastic. When I closed my eyes, it was just like ELO were there. Great nigh thanks guys!
What a fantastic night we had with you last night at eleven here in sunny Stoke, you are superb, so authentic! Hope you come back soon as we enjoyed every moment & I truthfully can't speak this morning, too much singing along 🙂🙂
Saw ELOE in Stowmarket on Sunday 13th May. They are very good and played some of the less well known tracks of ELO. Great musicianship from all, especially keyboards and strings! Highlight of the evening for me was the Prologue together with Twilight, never heard played by anyone other than the original ELO before! Great night out and superb value for money. Will definitely see them again!
Thanks for a great evening May 5th 2018 in Colchester. You were absolutely great & sounded like the real thing. We are both massive fans of Jeff Lynne & ELO's music & so enjoyed the evening. Well done to all of you. You must have worked very hard to achieve this & it has certainly paid off.
To the Corn Exchange Bedford last night for the ELO Encounter tribute band. Jeff Lynne and co’s often complex arrangements are not the most simple to replicate but this excellent tribute band had it well nailed. Lead singer and keyboard player Jack Rownes confidently took on the Lynne vocal part – while Jasmine Ali and Ezme on violin and cello added to the authenticity of the ELO sound. Early highlights included Evil Woman, Showdown, Ma Ma Belle ( Martin Donald on guitar firing out the Stones like riffs) Strange Magic and Don’t Bring Me Down - the latter featuring the strident drumming of Dacre Peck. It was also good to hear some lesser high profile ELO compositions such as 10538 Overture and Night Rider. In the second half, bassist Simon Rownes provided the soprano vocal to Rockaria - this was during a sequence of up-tempo crowd pleasing numbers that included Hold on Tight, Rock’ n’ Roll Is King and Roll Over Beethoven. On the home straight the big hitters Turn To Stone, Sweet Talkin’ Woman, The Diary Of Horace Wimp and Wild West Hero hit the mark. Violinist Jasmine also took on the Olivia Newton John vocal for an infectious delivery of Xanadu. A rousing finale of Last Train To London, All Over The World and Shine a Little Love had the crowd up and dancing - and an encore of Mr Blue Sky sent us all out into the cold night air with a warm glow. All in all this was a hugely enjoyable encounter with some of the finest pop music of a golden era. A highly recommended ELO experience –catch them when you can…
Went down to watch this ELO tribute band on Saturday evening 10th February 2018 - the group was really good - all very good musicians in their own right & sounded just like the real ELO - the venue was full & sold out so a packed house enjoyed a really good show - good value too at only £10 a ticket.
Hi guys, Thank you very much for a great performance last night in the Neeld Hall, Chippenham. The sound was superb and the whole set went off brilliantly. Good luck on the rest of your tour, and hopefully we will catch you again when you’re performing in the surrounding area again. Once again thank you. Sean & Belinda
Saw the band last night at the town hall in Maldon, my son and his wife took me for a treat, and what a treat it was. Five very talented people, and I could not have enjoyed it more.
Had an absolutely fantastic evening at the Seagull Theatre, Lowestoft on October 20th - went with family and frankly the show took me back to my youth when I would listen to ELO from my mothers continuous listening back in the '80's - awesome tribute to ELO - WELL DONE to you all 🙂
Hi to all the band members. We were at the Seagull last night with friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening,! nonstop great hits and favourites of ELO professionally delivered and you did the real ELO proud. Thank you all for sharing your talent.
Wow what a show at the Seagull theatre last night. Note for note perfect. These guys are recreating the music of ELO so well. A must see for any lover of music. All this and such down to earth people who just have fun. Well done guys see you again soon.
Thoroughly enjoyed tonight's show at The Seagull Theatre, Lowestoft, excellent band & excellent p.a sound, highly recommended for ELO fans, thank you!
Wonderful introduction to your band last night at the Mill in Rayleigh. So glad Duncan, my pal, had your flier through his letterbox. So sorry however that Rayleigh wasn't more supportive in attendance numbers but it certainly didn't put you off from giving us a top notch show with a perfect sound balance for such a cavernous function room. Me, Duncan and Zoe thoroughly enjoyed it and will be spreading the word in our area. Looking forward to your next gig already. xxx
Took my dad (a life-long ELO fan) along to the show on Friday, and we both had a fantastic time. He had such a good time, in fact, that I had to keep elbowing him to stop him from singing along in his deafening way! I was really pleased that you played a few from the Time album; only other one I'd have liked to hear was Ticket to the Moon! Would definitely recommend the show, thank you very much for a wonderful evening!
Lynne and I were not dissapointed. The show at Barking tonight was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Will definitely go to see you again. Only downside was when Rockaria was performed no reference to Kelly Groucutts vocals was made.
Wow.amazing.we were still singing on way home..will definitely go again.ps loved the pink hair.
So looking forward to the Gig in Barking on Friday. Lynne and I have always loved ELO and your you tube videos are great can't wait for the 29th.
Had a great night out at the Millfield Theatre in Enfield. Can't say how impressed I was with the quality of everything; great vocals (from everyone who had a go), well played instruments and effects and real strings. Loved every minute, going to keep my eye out and go and see you again. Hoping for Calling America next time though 😉 Keep up the great work!!
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!
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.
Absolutely loved it.
Fantastic nite would definitely come again well done
Totally agree. Will be recommending a repeat visit at the next leisure and community meeting. Talented all round 🙂
Great show. Hope you come back.
Great show, really enjoyed it, thank you.
Thoroughly enjoyed your show last night. Thank you 🙂

One of the best concerts I have seen, great and truly talented musicians, thanks for coming to Haverhill, hope to see you over here again soon 🙂
Brilliant night. Really enjoyed it.
Fantastic show would defo come see you again 🙂
