The Stranger: The Ultimate Billy Joel Tribute Show
It’s not much of a stretch for Mike Santoro, the piano player and lead vocalist in The Stranger, to inhabit the stage persona of Billy Joel. Santoro sounds like Joel. Santoro looks like Joel. He’s even from Long Island just like the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, six-time Grammy winner, and songwriter tied with the Beatles for the most multiplatinum albums in the US. No, perhaps the toughest requirement for Santoro has been to memorize the rapid-fire lyric of “HarryTrumanDorisDayRedChinaJohnnieRaySouthPacificWalterWinchellJoeDiMaggio” that he sings with precision during every performance of “We Didn’t Start the Fire.”
Onstage, Santoro is joined by the five members of his crack-backing band. Whether wailing on the sax in the U-Haul jingle “Movin’ Out” or plowing through the rock-steady percussion of the individualistic anthem “My Life,” they please Joel fans during an interactive show that covers both radio hits and oft overlooked B-sides. The Stranger also sprinkles their set with songs by other ivory-shackled icons such as Elton John and Paul McCartney.
