Mike DelGuidice & Big Shot – Celebrating the Music of Billy Joel is the Only Billy Joel Show endorsed by Billy Joel, performed by members of Billy Joel’s band, and fronted by Billy Joel Band Member, Mike DelGuidice, who was hand picked by Billy Joel himself.
After 18 years of playing Billy Joel’s music in his band Big Shot, Mike Delguidice now lives a dream come true. In October of 2013, Mike was personally hired by Billy Joel to join his band.
And now you can see Mike on tour with Billy Joel all over the U.S. and world in major arenas and stadiums including every month at the iconic Madison Square Garden.
There’s no other band like this on the planet. The fact of the matter is, this is not just some Billy Joel Tribute Band.
Mike is the only musician on the planet, and probably the history of music for this type of situation, where the front guy of the band is actually in the band of the artist his band covers. It is the epitome of the Cinderella Story (in his case, Cinderfella).
Mike and his extraordinary band BIG SHOT, which include other long time legendary members of Billy Joel’s current touring band, Tommy Byrnes, guitar and Chuck Burgi, drums are well known and respected for providing a show of Billy Joel’s song book packed with hit after chart-topping hit, (and some album cuts for the die hard Billy Joel fan) in a high energy, interactive stage performance. On any given night they will also astonish you with renditions of songs by Elton John, McCartney, Beatles, Journey, and others.
A brilliant vocalist and master of several instruments, including bass guitar, Rhythm guitar, piano and drums, he is also the author of two albums, “My Street” and “Miller Place”.
