Billy Joel Tribute - The Stranger (Starts at 9pm)

Introducing America’s most authentic tribute to the legendary BILLY JOEL…

Daniel Rodriguez Jr., Steven Daley, Evan Bloom, and Fred Updegraft are, by definition, The Stranger band.

Formed in the summer of 2009, THE STRANGER has amassed an impressive list of clientele, high profile events, festivals and concerts that would rival many national acts. With all members residing in the Charlotte North Carolina area, and several decades of experience between them, The Stranger is a musical powerhouse that is recognized as one of the best and most entertaining live bands in the business.

BILLY JOEL is one of the world's most beloved musical artists of the past 100 years. So naturally, paying tribute to that level of talent and doing it justice is something special...

The Stranger IS the most authentic tribute to this celebrated icon. Comprised of some of the best and most experienced musicians in the business, this band brings together an authentic replication of Billy's timeless music, crowning it with soulful, spot on vocals that makes listening to a Billy Joel song so special.

Out front on piano & lead vocals is founder & front man Mike Santoro. Born and raised in Levittown NY . Like Joel himself, Mike resembles, sounds, entertains and has the stage presence of Billy Joel in his prime. With an unparalleled band of musicians that hums like a well oiled machine, the result is a show that is not to be missed.

We give you the Billy Joel show with the sound of his original band in his prime... energetic, interactive an often unpredictable. Its live entertainment at its best!

From his radio hits to classic b-sides, sprinkled with great songs from similar artists such as Elton John, Paul Macartney and others, it's everything you'll ever want in an evening out of great music. Available for corporate events,festivals, casinos, private affairs, and select venues.

The Stranger is also available as an Elton John/Billy Joel "Face-2-Face" Concert that features pianist/vocalist Ronnie Smith resident entertainer at the famous Bobby McKeys in Washington D.C. This knock-out show features up to 3 1/2 hrs of the best of both artists, full costumes, lights, visual arts, the WORKS! Available for theaters, festivals, casinos, private functions, etc.

The depth of the care and effort that Southern Accents put into their stage-presence and matching Petty’s moves & music separates them far from any other tribute band out there; they play it like it was their very own while showing respect to its original creator through their bold & perfect impression. They bring the timeless melodies, sweet rhythms and wild rock-music of Tom Petty to the stage for everyone to experience & fall in love with all over again, passionately, accurately and vibrantly, recreating some of the most important songs to have ever been written throughout our music’s history.

Alter Eagles: The Definitive Eagles Tribute Band

The Alter Eagles are by far the most authentic representation of The Eagles in their prime in the world!

Any fan of the Eagles music will recognize the subtle complexities of instruments and vocals paired with

exacting harmonies when attending an Alter Eagles event. And unlike other top touring tributes to the

Eagles the entire show is sung live with no backing vocal tracks….EVER!

The members of Alter Eagles came together for love of the Eagles music. They are professional touring

musicians who were eager to pool their talents to provide the most accurate and engaging live recreation of

the Eagles music possible. All the Eagles classics from "Their Greatest Hits" album like Take It Easy,

Desperado and One of these Nights, as well as songs from the newer albums and solo careers such as

Heartache Tonight and of course Hotel California are just a few in their repertoire.

Doors open at 6 PM and the performance starts at 9 PM.

All tickets previously purchased for the 3/28 show will be honored at the door.  NEW tickets can be purchased online

KISS ALIVE the Tribute

McDonough...Get Ready for KISS ALIVE!!!

KIϟϟ ALIVE the TRIBUTE strives to accurately portray the band, its members, choreography and of course, the music. We work hard to re-capture the energy, intensity and experience that a 1970's KIϟϟ concert embodied....when KIϟϟ ruled the rock and roll world.

* KISS ALIVE the Tribute is not simply just another KISS TRIBUTE band, we are a national, theatrical stage and music act made up of highly talented, seasoned music veterans who happen to resemble the members of the band KISS.

* KISS ALIVE the TRIBUTE accurately portrays KISS the band, its members, the choreography and the music. We thoroughly impersonate the original members. We perform using vintage instruments with period accurate costumes and makeup.

This is not the watered down version of the current band but precise recreation of the band at their peak of 1970's super group status. We possess a passion for our work, we love what we do and we are very good at it. We've invested our souls and we pour them out each and every time we perform.

* Any venue who books KISS ALIVE the TRIBUTE can expect a packed house.

The real band KISS has 40 years of loyal dedicated fans with a demographic spanning ages

7 to 65 years of age. When venues advertise that we are performing, the fans will come from miles and miles. This act practically sells itself and your clients will be guaranteed a huge turnout providing they advertise.

* We are Unique and Exclusive. No other band covers the era of the actual band as we do.

There are only a small handful of truly talented KISS tribute bands available, this is one.

There are none available in the South East U.S. except KISS ALIVE the TRIBUTE.

Doors open at 6pm, Show starts at 9pm, 21+ Non-smoking
