My plans changed. Thought I was meeting up with a few people but they bailed out. I ended up going alone and wasn't to sure what to expect! but... I was surprise how nice its set up. I've been to BB Kings before for another show and new about the table set up. But it was like hanging out with old friends. Everyone knew Billy Joel's songs and they all sang along! The band is great. Every song was fun and exact. People were going wild requesting songs. At the end we got a special treat. I young boy around 10 years old performed "Piano Man". His performances was outstanding! this is a must see. A couples night. A girls night. A friends night! Good times.
p.s they did seem to get tired and changed it up to other bands like journey. that I didn't like. I went to hear "Billy Joel" not to see an old woman dance around on the chairs and request "sweet home alabama". very cheesy. But they are still a good band. I will have to agree and say it was more like a wedding or corporate event.
