Middle C Jazz Presents: We're Still Standing - A 2nd Anniversary Celebration of Billy Joel & Elton John
Mention piano players and the discussion will quickly move to Elton John and Billy Joel. The two iconic piano men helped define the 70’s and 80’s. Masters of some of the most indelible melodies in pop music history, Elton John and Billy Joel easily helped write the soundtrack for more than two decades.
Piano man Noel Freidline will be joined by his masterful quartet and vocalists Adam McKnight and Maria Howell. Adam was the vocal arranger for Elton John, touring and performing with him everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Live-8. Actress/vocalist Maria Howell has appeared in everything from “The Color Purple” to “The Hunger Games,” “Hidden Figures,” and many more.
The show will feature some of their biggest hits: “New York State of Mind” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Only the Good Die Young” and “Rocket Man.” You won’t be required to sing along, but it certainly won’t be discouraged!
