Tribute the Songs of Billy Joel Live
This CD, recorded completely live, is my humble attempt to celebrate the music of Billy Joel. Comprised of many of his familiar songs, it also contains some of his lesser-known compositions special to me. Songs such as; 'Summer, Highland Falls', that has and continues to inspire me from the first time I heard it. Thank you Billy for the difference your music has made in my life. Roger A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Roger has been performing for over twenty five years and since the age of 19 has been opening concerts with national recording artists such as Pat Benetar, Robert Palmer, Bruce Hornsby, Seals & Croft and Hall & Oates, to name a few and continues to do so. In March of 1999, Roger was invited to perform before the members of the United States Congress and their families at the Bipartisan Congressional Retreat held in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Normally performing both on piano and acoustic guitar, Roger commands a varied repertoire offering a wide range of performance styles in English as well as Spanish. With this project Roger sets aside his guitar and produced a powerful, heartfelt, emotionally charged and dynamic 'Tribute' to the music of one of our times most popular and distinguished singer/songwritters, Billy Joel. During his performance the audience becomes a major part of the show as they become enwoven by Roger's ability to masterfully intertwine a highly polished level of artistry, along with an easy going, light-hearted sense of humor, into a powerful, charismatic stage presence. As experienced in his re-do of Piano Man at the end of the CD simply called; 'La DI DA This, La DI DA That' in a thousand seat hall. It's well worth adding to your music collection. Well done Roger! Keep up the good work!
