“Tony Monaco and Turnstiles Americas best tribute band” Music Scene

“Guys, I’ve been a Billy Joel fan for the last 30 years, but after hearing you last night at BB Kings, I’m also your fan! You are all amazing musicians who deliver a kick-ass Performance, note-for-note, Unbelievable…Seriously!” a New York fan..

If you consider the definition of singing the songs like Billy does as being an acknowledgement of respect and admiration, you can understand who Tony Monaco is. As a young man, Tony became an inspired, lifelong fan of the Piano Man and he used his inspiration to grow as a fantastic pianist, vocalist and songwriter. After years of performing with original and cover bands opening for Foreigner, Nick Lowe, Juice Newton and Orleans. In 1993, he became a hit in New York singing the songs of Billy Joel! Tony enlisted some of America’s finest musicians to join him to bring some the World’s most listened songs to life on the stage. Tony never intended to be an impersonator he just wanted to sing songs written by Billy Joel. His focus is simply on the music and delivering a faithful and completely live Billy Joel experience to share with others. Tony not only looks like Billy his sound is “dead on!” Hear great classics like Allentown, Big Shot, Movin’ Out, It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me, Piano Man, Only the Good Die Young, Uptown Girl, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant and dozens more! Tony and the fabulous Turnstiles’ renditions of Billy’s classic songs are certain to move the casual listener as well as the hard core “Joel fan” to their feet for standing ovation after ovation and have them sing along with all the classics! Last year as the SOLD OUT year before we turned fans away at the door we recommend that you purchase your tickets early!
“We saw your concert live last year and I must say that if I closed my eyes I could swear it was Billy Joel on stage, keep on rolling, you are fantastic” a Billy fan
