Winter Concert Series: Jim Witter's the Piano Men

Monday, January 30, 2023

The Piano Men is a musical celebration of the 1970’s – year by year, hit by hit – from the songbooks of Billy Joel and Elton John. Utilizing spectacular visuals on a giant screen behind Witter and his band, we return to the newspaper headlines, the automobiles, the people, the events, the toys, and even the TV shows that shaped a decade. Along the way, the sounds of “My Life,” “Candle in the Wind,” “Rocket Man,” “Just the way you Are,” and many more classic hits create an evening that’s so much fun, you won’t want it to end. By the time you hit 1979, you’ll be begging these musicians to move back to 1970 and start all over again. With Witter at the grand piano and his incredibly talented bandmates, the music is not an attempt to “recreate” or “mimic” the evening’s long list of familiar hits. Instead, Witter unleashes his golden tenor on hit after hit to recreate fully-formed mental and emotional return visits to specific landmarks in a pop culture timeline.

Doors open at 6:00 PM.
