Mike DelGuidice and Big Shot: Celebrating the Music of Billy Joel
As part of our 2018-2019 Artist Series Kutztown Presents welcomes Mike DelGuidice and Big Shot Celebrating the Music of Billy Joel. Mike DelGuidice can be seen playing guitar and singing backup vocals for Billy Joel in arenas and stadiums around the world including the monthly concerts at Madison Square Garden.
DelGuidice's own band, Big Shot, includes other current, long time members of Billy Joel's band. Tommy Byrnes has been Billy Joel's lead guitarist and musical director for the past 29 years and played a key role in helping Billy and Twyla Tharp create the Tony Award-winning Broadway smash Movin' Out.
Chuck Burgi has been Billy Joel's drummer for more than a decade and has performed with him on the Elton John and Billy Joel Face-2-Face tour. John Scarpulla, saxophonist for Billy Joel's "Last Play at Shea" concerts, and keyboardist Carmine Giglio are both alumni of Broadway's Movin' Out. Bass player Nick Dimichino joined Big Shot after a successful run with the band Nine Days. Rock the night away and sing along to all of your favorite Billy Joel tunes as these seasoned musicians play them just like they do with "The Piano Man" himself! Tickets available on our website or by phone.
