BILLY JOEL TRIBUTE: BIG SHOT
Wednesday, January 1, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Big Shot returns to B.B. King Blues Club and is fronted by the amazing vocals of singer-songwriter and piano man Michael DelGuidice. DelGuidice is a well-known and respected Long Island musician and multi-instrumentalist. With vocals that stand out above all others, he recently released a 10-song album of his own material, titled Miller Place (2010). His tribute band Big Shot is truly a national-level act, featuring all world-class musicians who have not only toured with Billy Joel but have also worked with names like Michael Bolton, Hall & Oates, Huey Lewis, Diana Ross, Billy Joel's Broadway Musical, Richie Blackmore, Tower of Power, Nine Days, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Big Shot's performance is a 90-minute to two-hour show not to be believed, packed with hit after chart-topping hit in a high energy, interactive stage performance. The show almost exclusively covers Billy Joel's music, but the band will also surprise you with songs by Elton John, The Beatles, Journey, Paul McCartney, Marc Cohn, and many others.
Don't miss these special guests performing with the band about which Billy Joel himself declared: "They had a hard time convincing me it wasn't me. It's uncanny."
When & Where
B.B. King Blues Club
Conveniently located in the heart of Times Square near Penn Station and Port Authority, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill offers music fans a unique experience. Owned by the Bensusan Family, proprietors of the world renowned Blue Note Jazz Club, the club features world-class musical talent and consists of two distinct spaces: the Showcase Room & Lucille’s Grill.
The breathtaking main space is classical in form and spirit: two-tiered, horseshoe-shaped seating (booths & tables) centered around a 30-foot stage presents up close and personal views of all performances. The 40-foot bar is a haven for the reserved listener. The atmosphere is enhanced with two 8-foot big video screens on either side of the stage.
