The Piano Men
Sunday, Oct. 1 3 p.m.
Do you remember where you were when you heard the news that Elvis had died? Can you still recall the smell of the interior of your 1973 Volkswagen Beetle? Do you wish you still had your old bell-bottom blue jeans and Puma running shoes? If you love watching reruns of “Gilligan’s Island,” “Green Acres,” or “WKRP In Cincinnati” then you’ll love “The Piano Men.” “The Piano Men” is a musical celebration of a decade we all fondly remember: The Seventies! The show is set entirely to the music of Billy Joel and Elton John, two of the creative icons of the period. Jim Witter is featured on the grand piano, along with his backup group of guitar, bass, flute/sax/electric keyboard and drums. Jim makes no attempt to mimic his heroes, instead he uses the familiar arrangements, and his phenomenal singing ability to evoke their music. Using a rear-projected screen and a visual presentation to take the audience back to the period he recalls, Witter shows us the headlines, the automobiles, the newsworthy people, the events; even the toys and their TV commercials.
