BILLY JOEL

Pat Farrell and his electrifying band celebrated the music of Billy Joel by capturing the sound and spirit of the Piano Man himself with "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl," "Piano Man" and a multitude of other Billy Joel smash hits.

KENNY METCALF AS ELTON JOHN


Kenny Metcalf stepped back in time with rhinestones and sequins to recreate the sights and sounds of the young "Rocket Man!" We agree with The Beacon Media as they described, “This guy IS Elton John. He has his energy, flamboyance and remarkable talent. This show is unlike any other tribute show you've seen.

PLAID TIDINGS


The legendary Plaids came to spread yuletide joy with the greatest holiday hits of the ages! Filled with a riotous performance of "Plaid-erized" Christmas standards, there has been nobody like the Plaids to put a little four part harmony and slapstick humor into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings were heaven-sent favorites from yesteryear that treated and lifted our spirits.

WILLIE NELSON


Roger Hegyi, one of the most entertaining tribute artists celebrated the memorable songs of country cross-over artist Willie Nelson. Roger looks, sounds and carries himself so much like the American icon, they could have been twins separated at birth. The audience was on their feet and singing along with the country legend to his classic hits, including "On the Road Again."
