Billy-Elton, A Tribute to Billy Joel and Elton John

Billy Elton celebrates the music of two of the greatest singers, pianists, and songwriters in pop music history – Billy Joel and Elton John.

Led by Reid Spears on the piano and lead vocals, this 8-piece band takes you on a timeless journey through the catalogs of these two musical giants. Dedicated to top-notch musicianship, the band performs a completely live show without the use of any backing tracks. Billy Elton will have the audience on its feet singing along to such classics as “Crocodile Rock”, “Only the Good Die Young”, “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting”, “Piano Man”, and many others in a show that is exciting, engaging, and entertaining for all ages, young and old!

The band has become the premier celebration of the music of Billy Joel and Elton John in the Midwest. They have played sold-out and near capacity shows at numerous venues, and their outdoor summer concerts have often drawn 2000-3000 people. In 2017, they celebrated the 40th anniversary of Billy’s landmark album “The Stranger” by performing the entire album in all of their shows, and they are currently playing over half of Elton’s legendary double album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” in all of their 2023 shows in honor of that album’s 50th anniversary.

Given the immense repertoire of both artists, Billy Elton gives a great sampling of the biggest hits and a few deeper album cuts in every show, but continually mixes up the setlist to make every show different and unique.
