Piano Men salute Elton John, Billy Joel

The Piano Men is a musical journey through the 1970s featuring two of the century’s most popular songwriters.

Canadian pianist, singer and songwriter Jim Witter joins the Victoria Symphony for a special salute to Elton John and Billy Joel.

The Piano Men: Elton John and Billy Joel, is a musical journey through the 1970s featuring two of the century’s most popular songwriters.

Witter has enjoyed a 20-year career on stage and in the recording studio. He has had 10 top 10 radio hits in Canada, seven hit videos on CMT, and impressive chart action in the U.S. on Billboard and R&R.

A few years ago, Witter came up with the concept for the show The Piano Men.

“I was always a big fan of acoustic music, especially the folk of the ’70s — James Taylor, Harry Chapin – but my real mentors were Billy Joel and Elton John.”

The Piano Men is perfromed May 1 and May 2 at 8 p.m. There is a matinee performance May 3 at 2 p.m. All shows are at the Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton St.

Tickets are available at the Victoria Symphony Box Office at 250-385-6515.
