NORTH CONWAY, NH  Elton John and Billy Joel have combined to sell over 350 million records worldwide. For four decades they have been a large part of the musical landscape, topping the album charts and playing to sold out audiences while continuing to receive heavy airplay on classic rock radio. Since 1994. these two legendary performers have regularly been joining forces selling out their worldwide Face-to-Face tours.

“Piano Men ” is a tribute to the amazing songs of Elton John and Billy Joel. This concert combines a four-piece pop group featuring Joe Boucher on piano and vocals playing with an orchestra with arrangements by Christopher Eastburn. Rarely have these songs ever been heard performed live in this way as Elton and Billy themselves have only on a few occasions performed with orchestras.

The music of Piano Men concentrates heavily on the recordings by Elton and Billy during their 1970s heyday when their many hit albums featured lush orchestrations. The concert opens with Billy Joel’s thrilling “Prelude/Angry Young Man” and works it’s way through a veritable hit parade alternating songs between the two composers.
