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.
