A Celebration of the Songs of Elton John and Billy Joel
Performed by John Reilly & Lewis Nitikman

Singer-songwriter John Reilly and Canadian pianist and composer Lewis Nitikman
are delighted to pay their yearly visit to Alexanders’ Live to celebrate the music of
Elton John and Billy Joel. Since their first gig in 2018, it’s always been a fantastic
evening, with a wonderful vibe and judging from the fabulous feedback received from
the sell-out audience, they absolutely love it !!

The concert is not a tribute, but a true 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.

So, once again, this is not a tribute. No dressing up. No miming. No backing

Just two consummate professionals celebrating amazing, timeless songs performed from the heart in a show that has people on their feet, moved and shouting for more !!
