This group was great. They sounded just like the real thing! I liked that they played some of the lesser known songs. It was a lot of fun!

Big Shot is terrific, by far and away the best cover band I've ever seen. It's really like seeing the actual Billy Joel--and in an intimate venue, as opposed to Madison Square Garden. BB King's is a nice venue too -- not a bad seat in the house.

Great Billy Joel tribute band. The did some 80's stuff in the middle to break it up and that was fun too. Someone yelled out "Crazy Train" and they did it. They are extremely competent musicians and we had a great time. The band looked like...continued

They sounded pretty good, just like a Billy Joel CD, but after about ten minutes they seemed to get tired of Billy Joel songs and started playing Sweet Home Alabama and Hey Jude, etc. so it really felt more like a wedding band or like I was at a...continued

Excellent show! Very entertaining! And BB Kings was a great venue too - with decent, but not great food.

Big Shot is by far the best Billy Joel cover band ever! And not only can they do Billy Joel, but they also play amazing covers from other bands as well. Great times!

The musicians were talented and song selections were great! We enjoyed the music a lot. The venue is nice, we were promptly seated and had good view of the stage. The drinks are towards pricy side (between $10 - $11 for wine). The service was...continued

As close to a Billy Joel experience as a fan is going to get without seeing the real thing. Great sax, guitar, piano, and vocals mixed in with some comedy between songs.
They played all of Billy's biggest hits including Piano Man, New York State...continued

Big Shot is an AMAZING band -- they sounded JUST like Billy Joel and his band! Highly recommended to go see them if you can't make it to Billy's concerts. I would go back again if Big Shot came back to my area soon.
