‘Piano Men’ performs Billy Joel, Elton John hits February 19


 Jim Witter will bring his hit
show “The Piano Men”

a musical journey through the 70s, featuring the hit songs of Billy Joel and Elton John to Moraine Valley Community College on Saturday, February 19, at 7:30 p.m.


 The show will be in the Dorothy Menker Theater in the Fine and Performing Arts Center, on campus, in Palos Hills. –  Just minutes from downtown Chicago!  Tickets are $25 for the general public, $20 for seniors and $15 for students.

Recording artist Jim Witter and his band will lead the audience on a tour of an entire decade of classic hits that begins with Elton John’s 1970 ballad “Your Song.” From there, the show will wind through a musical time machine with performances of “My Life,” “Candle in the Wind,” “Rocket Man,” “Just the Way You Are,” and many more. Using rear-screen projection, images of newspaper headlines, automobiles, people, events, toys, and even TV shows that shaped the ’70s will appear on the backdrop.

Witter is a country music and contemporary Christian recording artist in Ontario, Canada, where he lives, and Nashville, Tennessee. He has had 10 top ten radio hits in Canada, seven hit videos on Country Music Television, and chart action in the United States on Billboard and R&R. He has earned multiple awards and nominations from the Canadian Country Music Association, the Juno Awards and the Dove Awards in Nashville.

A few years ago, Witter developed the concept for “The Piano Men”  because his mentors were Billy Joel and Elton John. The multi-media rock musical has received rave reviews from music critics across North America, and Witter has plans to take the show to London and Japan.
