It all started with Elton!
Ron as Captain Fantastic Detroit
Ron uncovered his passion for music during his first piano lessons with his dad. From that point on he was involved in piano recitals, bar bands, recording engineer, song writing, and of course, the music of Elton John.
The Captain Fantastic Detroit Band consists of Ron Foss on piano, Jo Jo Moceri on drums, Larry Socha on guitar , Chris Bezas on bass and Shellie Gambino on harmonies and percussion.
Ron Foss has been playing piano since he was 7, and learned classical as well as pop standards. It wasn’t until Elton John came on the scene that inspired Ron to learn many of Elton John’s songs from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Honky Chateau. Ron’s looks and voice are so similar to Elton’s, that Ron decided to perform as Elton with much success!
