If you’re into classic rock, you’ll definitely want to pick up Location of Incident’s debut album titled “Strong Without My Fears”! Twin brothers, Paul and Tony Rovillard, are back after taking a twenty year break from the music industry as law enforcement officers, and they are stronger than ever. Now with the motto: “Be Strong, Be Yourself, and Never Give Up on Your Goals,” the two are back at entertaining and inspiring the people with their music. The pulsating drum beats matched with uplifting lyrics produce a classic rock inspired sound that is original to Location of Incident’s rock and roll. You can back their kickstarter: http://kck.st/1kymnI7 to see them come to your town! “Strong Without My Fears” is available on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/LOI-StrongWithoutMyFears-itunes and Amazon here: http://bit.ly/LOI-StrongWithoutMyFears.

Billy Joel didn't say the quote on the top of the page. Elton John did.

I first saw big bill in 84 on his innocent man tour. Superb perofrmance at the wembley arena and a SUPERB SINGER SONGWRITER, unrivalled by the likes of sprinstein et all. He still owes all of the fans in england another tour. But we'll forgive him if he decides to hang up his piano.Good Luck in your marriage Billy, you deserve happiness.God bless matePete

I went to see Billy Joel twice at Wembley. Monday night was awesome but Wednesday night was incredible. I was leaning on the stage and I had a fantastic time. He is incredible, the music is amazing and it still gives me a rush when I think about the concerts - I hope its not the last time we will see him in England! Thanks for coming back.

Just wanted to say saw Billy at Southampton Rose Bowl 14/7/06, haven't seen him since 1990 and I think he's better than ever. I'm still hearing the music ! ! ! It's also great that he has a new CD out - the only gripe is it would be great to have a new song. After the concert last week he's still got the talent. The age range at the concert was wide (as young as 14 to people well into 60's). Great Great Great - long may he go on.

Paul McCartney is great in his own way, but without Lennon's input most of Paul's lyrics are very bubble gummish. John and the Beatles, mostly John, changed a generation. So that new age music is where its at today, which leaves alot to be desired. People can say what they want. People can listen to the type of music they want and that's okay. Music is not the same, will not have the same meaning, structure, or melodies that John Lennon, the writers for Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis those days are gone and it is now all junk. That is what makes the world go round and we all have our opinions.Take CareQuigley18

I was so mad that I couldn't go to the show at Gillete but thanks to Boston Music Spotlight's great review I felt like I was there! Sounds like it was a night of sing-alongs. If you missed the show you should definitely check out the review here:bostonmusicspotlight.com/article.php?id=2391

Wade Preston is a singer, pianist, and composer who performs regularly with the Movin' Out Band, members of the Billy Joel Band and as a solo artist. He most recently starred in the Broadway Musical Movin’ Out, as well as guest starred on both national tours. This is the Movin' Out Band at the Richard Rogers Theatre on Broadway, with Wade as the Piano Man. With roots in classical, boogie, barrel house and New Orleans second-line style piano playing, Wade mixes Billy Joel / Elton John vocal styles with Ray Charles passion. His keyboard abilities are reminiscent of Keith Emerson precision mixed with the joyous abandon of Jerry Lee Lewis. In June and July of 2008 Wade had the honor of doing the rehearsals and sound checks for Billy Joel in both Hershey, PA and Shea Stadium, essentially being the "stunt Billy." "Thanks for doing this. You're making my life very easy," Mr. Joel said to Preston at a recent rehearsal. "That's the idea." Wade replied.Tickets are $15 dollars in advance $20 dollars at the door. There is a 2 drink minimum person inside the show. Call 212-977-3884*All tickets include free admission to our Dueling Piano Bar Show immediatetly after the show!!!
