After 18 years of playing Billy Joel’s music in his band Big Shot, Mike DelGuidice now lives a dream come true. In October 2013, Billy Joel heard DelGuidice sing and hired him on the spot to join his band full time. Now DelGuidice tours with Billy Joel all over the world in major arenas and stadiums including every month at the iconic Madison Square Garden. DelGuidice and his extraordinary band BIG SHOT, which include other current long time legendary members of Billy Joel’s touring band; Tommy Byrnes, guitar and Chuck Burgi, drums are well known and respected for providing a show of Billy Joel’s song book packed with hit after chart-topping hit.
After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales.
Cohn will be joined by The Blind Boys of Alabama, whose pioneering modern style transcends race and genre and has inspired fans for more than seven decades. Their music captures a singular spirt that pays tribute to their musical traditions, while sounding as modern and vital as ever. The song “Let My Mother Live” off their recently released album “Almost Home” was just nominated for the Grammy Award for Best American Roots Performance.
American glam metal band Warrant was formed in 1984 in Hollywood, California. The band experienced success from 1989 to 1996, with five albums reaching international sales of over 10 million. The band first came into the national spotlight with its Double Platinum debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich, and one of its singles, “Heaven,” reached No. 1 in Rolling Stone and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band continued its success in the early 1990s with the Double Platinum album Cherry Pie, which provided the hit album title song and music video. After over 30 years, the band is still recording music and performing, now with ex-Lynch Mob lead vocalist Robert Mason.
Warrant special guest, Great White, is an American hard rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1977. The band released several albums in the late 1980s and gained airplay on MTV with music videos for songs like “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.” The band reached their peak popularity with the album “Twice Shy” in 1989.
