Your Song – It’s Just The Way You Are ….
A Celebration of the Songs of Elton John and Billy Joel
Performed by John Reilly & Lewis Nitikman

Last year, singer songwriter John Reilly and Canadian pianist and songwriter Lewis Nitikman
played Alexander’s for the first time, celebrating the music of Sir Elton John and were so thrilled by
the fabulous feedback and wonderful vibe they received from the sell-out audience, they are
delighted to be returning in 2020 and this time they are adding some Billy Joel tunes to their
repertoire !!

The concert is not a tribute, but a celebration of the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. John Reilly, whose
albums have received both national and  international air play, sings the songs very accurately, but in his
own inimitable style and also plays percussion and harmonica, Lewis Nitikman, who is Berkelee trained and
has produced 3 gold albums in Canada,  plays piano and bass keyboards.

This will be a truly unique evening of stunning vocals and outstanding piano, . It is a totally live
performance, expect to hear all your favourite Elton and Billy tunes including Your Song, ‘Piano
Man’, 'Daniel', ‘Uptown Girl’, Candle in the Wind', ‘New York State of Mind’ , 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' etc., but also some you may not be so familiar with. It’s not a tribute, it’s a true celebration of
these wonderful tunes.
