“…they had a hard time convincing me it wasn’t me. It's uncanny.”

Billy Joel, in the New York Times

After 18 years of playing Billy Joel's music in his band Big Shot, Mike DelGuidice now lives a dream come true. In October 2013, Billy Joel heard Mike sing, then hired Mike on the spot to join his band full time. And now you can see Mike on tour with Billy Joel all over the US and the world in major arenas and stadiums including every month at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

Mike and his extraordinary band Big Shot, which includes other current longtime legendary members of Billy Joel's touring band Tommy Byrnes (guitar) and Chuck Burgi (drums), are well known and respected for providing a show of Billy Joel's songbook packed with hit after chart-topping hit, (and some album cuts for the die-hard Billy Joel fan).

The other members of the band, John Scarpulla, Carmine Giglio, and Nick Dimichino, also have impressive resumes, working, recording, and touring with Hall & Oats, Michael Bolton, Diana Ross, LeAnn Rimes, Nine Days, Huey Lewis, Tower of Power, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and in Broadway shows including Billy Joel's Movin’ Out.

Enjoy a warm summer evening at Goodwin where DelGuidice will perform Joel's best music, plus renditions of Paul McCartney, The Beatles, Elton John, Journey, Chicago, and original songs from his CDs.
