Get ready for another amazing performance at the Bandshell! Turnstiles, The Ultimate Billy Joel Tribute Band will perform at Daytona Beach’s Historic Bandshell at 7:15pm on Saturday, July 12 as part of the Friends Of The Bandshell FREE Star Spangled Summer Concert Series.
The Turnstiles band brings an energetic show that involves the audience and appeals to a large age group. They re-create Billy Joel’s classic songs in precise renditions that magically transport the audience back to earlier places and times.
As a young man, Tony Monaco, the leader and Billy Joel of "Turnstiles", became an inspired lifelong fan of the Piano Man and he used that inspiration to grow as a pianist and vocalist. As a result, Billy's style has been forever imprinted on Monaco’s musical soul. Monaco has enlisted some of the finest musicians in Florida to join with him to pay tribute to the man he has so much respect and admiration for, Billy Joel. Never intending to be an impersonator, his focus instead is simply on the music and delivering a faithful and completely live Billy Joel experience to share with others. Turnstiles performance of Billy’s classic songs is certain to move the casual listener as well as the hard core "Joel fan" to their feet and singing along with all the classics!
