Lords of 52nd Street –
The Original Legends of the Billy Joel Band
April 20th, 2018 at 8 PM
The Lords of 52nd Street are Billy Joel’s original band… and they are coming back, by popular demand, to The Milford Performance Center! Lords of 52nd Street is the name Billy Joel gave to the band back in the 70’s. They do not need to copy or reinvent the original music… since they are the guys you saw playing at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Nassau Coliseum and the countless other venues during those Billy Joel concerts of the 1970’s and 1980’s. THIS IS NOT A TRIBUTE BAND!
The Lords of 52nd Street are the legendary bandmates who recorded and toured the world for many years with the “Piano Man.” These guys helped to create one of the most recognizable sounds in music recording the sax, drum and guitar solos on over 100 million albums sold with Billy Joel as well. They also performed all over the world for decades with Billy as well as their own personal careers.
The band is led by Richie Cannata on tenor saxophone, Liberty DeVitto on drums and percussion, and Russell Javors on rhythm guitar. Their collaboration helped change the face of music. They have worked individually with multi-platinum artists, lending their talents to some of the greatest musicians in the world. After 30+ years the band has finally reunited, and havn’t missed a step, with this mind blowing show. Critics love them and their performances have been blowing away fans of all ages.
There is also a limited Meet & Greet before the show with only 12 tickets available on a first come first serve basis. All shows at MPC help multiple local Charities. This show helps several different causes and as always Food 2 Kids. Please see a list, on the MPC website, of kid friendly foods to bring and help fill the donation box in the lobby.
