Face 2 Face Bio
Introducing the U.S.A.’s 1st and longest running tribute to BILLY JOEL & ELTON JOHN…
Taking turns at an onstage piano, the dual tribute artists of the Billy
Joel/Elton John Face-2-Face Tribute Show conjure the beloved songsters
in both sound and image.
Backed by some the best and most sought after musicians in the business, Levittown NY native MIKE SANTORO’s fingers flash up and down the keys on “Angry Young Man” before he belts out high-energy Billy Joel classics such as “Movin Out”, “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” and more.
Following Santoro’s set, of the roughly three-hour show, RONNIE SMITH dons the iconic sunglasses and bedazzled suits of Elton John as he charts his style from the ‘70s to
the present. Timeless anthems such as “Tiny Dancer” and the epic treasure “Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding” mixed with more whimsical material such as “Crocodile Rock” and the fictional rock-group narrative “Bennie and the Jets.”
For the 3rd act, both artists hit the stage for THE grand finale, trading the spotlight with more of the best of Billy Joel and Elton John. For over a decade, this event is not one to be missed!
