The Stranger: A Billy Joel Tribute

The Stranger is the premiere tribute to the music of one of the world’s most talented performers – six-time Grammy winner, Billy Joel. The high-energy interactive concert is fronted by accomplished New York pianist and vocalist Mike Santoro, and backed by some of the finest musicians in the business. Authentic renditions of such cherished rock classics as “The Longest Time,” “She’s Always A Woman,” “Just the Way You Are,” and “Tell Her About It,” feature Santoro’s soulful, spot on vocals that are nearly indistinguishable from the Piano Man himself.
