Billy Joel Tribute – The Stranger @ Greenwich Odeum

Billy Joel Tribute – The Stranger @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

With over 150 million records sold worldwide in a career spanning nearly fifty years, singer, songwriter, composer and performer Billy Joel is one of the world’s most beloved musical artists of the past 100 years. So naturally, paying tribute to that level of talent and doing it justice is something not easily achieved…

The Stranger is the complete premiere tribute to the music of one of the world’s most beloved performers, Billy Joel. Comprised of some of the best and most experienced musicians in the business, this six piece band brings together an authentic replication of Billy’s timeless music, crowning it with soulful, spot on vocals that makes listening to a Billy Joel song so special.

Out front on piano and lead vocals is founder and frontman Mike Santoro. Born and raised in Levittown like Joel himself, Mike not only looks and talks a lot like Billy, but has the piano chops, vocal prowess and stage presence of the Piano Man – so much so that you will soon forget you are watching a tribute show. The Stranger gives you the Billy Joel experience with the sound of his original band in its prime… energetic, interactive and often unpredictable. Its live entertainment at its best!

From his radio hits to classic b-sides, sprinkled with great songs from similar artists such as Elton John, Paul McCartney and many others, it’s everything you’ll ever want in an evening out of great music.
