The Spectacular Pianomen Take a Walk Down Memory Lane
Pianomen had a great run at the Tropicana entertaining to a
packed house. The show featured five piano players bringing alive the sounds of
Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Ray Charles, Elton John and Burt Bacharach. The show
wowed the crowd with three superb backup singers and an eight piece band.
Martin Lacasse (above) wooed the crowd with a great smile and Billy
Joel tunes like Just the Way You Are, Honesty and Uptown Girl.
Francis Mondoux (above) performed Barry Manilow's hits Mandy, Can't
Smile and Copacabana.
Stephane Menard (above) brought back Elton John's Your Song, Yellow
Brick Road and Philadelphia Freedom among others.
The talented Dennis Mathews (above) lit up the house with a mixture
of Ray Charles' Georgia, Fats Domino's Blueberry Hill, Little Richard's Good
Golly Miss Molly and Jerry Lee Lewis' Great Balls of Fire!
The female vocalists were crowd pleasers with their
melodious back up singing and dance moves. The music of Burt Bacharach was
brought alive by Michel Ferrari, including what the World Needs Now, I Say a
Little Prayer and I'll Never Fall in Love Again.
The Finale included Beatles songs Imagine, Let it Be, and We
Are the Champions. The show closed with Saturday Night's Allright and then the
great encore Billy Joel's Piano Man.
