DelGuidice is a singer/song writer who calls Long Island home, just like his musical idol – Billy Joel. He’s also the front man for the Billy Joel tribute band BIG SHOT. The band has earned a name for itself by faithfully recreating Billy classics night after night and worked their way to play major regional venues like Disney, Moheagan Sun as well as local venues like Mulcahy’s & The Emporium.
BIG SHOT recreates the classic Billy Joel sound so well that the artist said in a New York Times interview “A friend called me and told me to listen to this band that was playing on local TV, and I said 'That's me,' Mr. Joel said ‘They said 'No, it's this band,' and they had a hard time convincing me it wasn't me. It's uncanny”
Tonight Michael DelGuidice lives the dream before his hometown crowd playing acoustic guitars and singing behind his idol, Bill Joel. Later this month they ship off to the Europe to perform a short four city tour.
While tickets sold out for tonight’s benefit concert in minutes, you can still catch Michael DelGuidice & BIG SHOT before they leave on Friday October 18 at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh and Friday October 25 at The Emporium.
