9:29 PM 2013

Elton John fans from around the world descended on Las Vegas, Nevada, October 4-6, for Elton Expo 2013 at Tuscany Suites & Casino. The gathering included a Q&A with members of the Elton John Band and appearances by other special guests, including record producer Matt Still ("The Captain & the Kid," "Peachtree Road"), author Keith Hayward ("Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John"), the acclaimed Elton John tribute band "Elton Rohn" and the Ben Babylon Band. Scroll down for photos!

Babylon, the son of Elton's late keyboard player Guy Babylon, has been working on an album with help from members of the Elton John Band, and recently released a single from it, titled "Burning Man" (iTunes). Two members of the EJ Band, guitarist Davey Johnstone and percussionist John Mahon, sat in with Babylon. Elton Expo 2013 was produced by East End Lights, an Elton John fan magazine.

The three-day fan fest featured musical performances and panel discussions by artists who have worked with Elton John, including members of his band, and a silent auction to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Fans also had an opportunity to sell and purchase Elton John collectibles.
