Piano Men: The Music of Elton John & Billy Joel
This tribute to the amazing songs of Billy Joel and Elton John, Piano Men features a four-piece rock band (Joe Boucher on piano and vocals, with arrangements, back up vocals and bass by Christopher Eastburn) and The Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra. The music of “Piano Men” concentrates heavily on the recordings by Elton and Billy during their 70’s heyday when their many hit albums featured lush orchestrations. The concert opens with Billy Joel’s thrilling “Prelude / Angry Young Man” and works its way through a veritable hit parade alternating songs between the two composers. Tickets available online April 1 (www.msmt.org) or over the phone (207-725-8769).
