JOEL is the premier rock and roll Billy Joel Tribute band on the West Coast.  Fresh off the national tour of Billy Joel’s Tony Award-winning rock musical “MOVIN’ OUT”, Piano Man KYLE MARTIN and his group of professional musicians have toured California and are preparing for their national tour later this year.  The band performs Billy Joel’s timeless repertoire including songs like “Big Shot”, “Only the Good Die Young”, “An Innocent Man”, and “New York State of Mind.”  They are blazing hot, and will have you on your feet rocking out.

KYLE MARTIN made quite a name for himself amongst Broadway and Rock fans as he traveled to over 100 cities starring as the “Piano Man” in two separate National Tours of the Tony Award-winning Billy Joel/Twyla Tharp musical smash “MOVIN’ OUT.”  The show is unusual in that, unlike the traditional musical, it essentially is a series of dances linked by a thin plot, and none of the dancers sing. All the vocals are performed by a pianist and band suspended on a platform above the stage while the dancers act out the narrative sans dialogue, making the show, in essence, a rock ballet.  Kyle outperformed over 30,000 people to nab the coveted role, and reviews like “Dynamic”, “Spectacular”, “A piano player with a touch like Billy Joel”, are just some of the accolades he received along his journey.

About Relay For Life

Relay For Life is an annual fundraiser to support the American Cancer Society.  Each year, more than 4 million people in more than 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon to raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.  Funds raised during Relay support cancer research and treatments as well as care programs such as Look Good … Feel Better and Road To Recovery.

Relay For Life is a 24-hour event in which participants form teams and keep at least one person on the track at all times.  This is a symbolic effort to demonstrate that cancer never sleeps and the fight against cancer will never rest.  The event includes special ceremonies to honor survivors and remember those who have lost their battle with cancer. Relay is also about having fun.  Teams host fundraisers and activities while live music keeps the energy going on the track.
