BIG SHOT returns to B.B. King's and is fronted by the amazing vocals of Singer/Songwriter and Piano Man, Michael DelGuidice. Michael is a well known and respected Long Island Musician and multi-instrumentalist. Michael's vocals are a stand-out among all others. He recently released a 10 song CD of his own material entitled "Miller Place."

The act is national level. All major pro world class musicians who not only toured with Billy Joel but have also worked with names like Michael Bolton, Hall and Oates, Huey Lewis, Diana Ross, Billy Joel's Broadway Musical, Richie Blackmore, Tower of Power, Nine Days, Trans Siberian Orchestra.

They perform a 90 minute to two hour show not to be believed, packed with hit after chart-topping hit in a high energy, interactive, stage performance. The Act almost exclusively covers Billy Joel's Music, but they will surprise you with songs by Elton John, The Beatles, Journey, Paul McCartney, Marc Cohn, and many others. Their renditions of the songs they perform are astonishing.

Featuring special guest original Billy Joel band member saxophonist Richie Cannata. Cannata was a member of the Billy Joel Band from 1972 - 1982 and returned with Billy on his 2006 tour including Billy Joel's record-setting 12-show run at Madison Square Garden. He Performed on Billy's albums: Songs In The Attic, 52nd Street, The Stranger, Glass Houses, Turnstiles, River Of Dreams, 2000 Years The Millennium Concert, and Billy's recent box set.

They have been written up in the Village Voice, and in the New York Times where Billy Joel himself was quoted saying "They had a hard time convincing me it wasn't me. It's uncanny."

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor.
