FACE TO FACE
Elton John and Billy Joel tribute artists Joey Riedel and Michael John have joined forces to create The Ultimate Tribute Show based on the Face to Face Show performed by Elton John and Billy Joel. The two capture both the original artists in their new, high energy, interactive Rock N Roll show.
Initial concert events have been highly successful with all involved raving about the show and Joey and Michael’s intensity on stage. Just like the original tour, each artist performs a solo set with a killer Rock ‘N’ Roll band, and then culminate the show with a Face to Face set which features both of them playing together on two pianos trading off lyrics on each song they perform.
Joey — visually and through his performance — captures Elton John in the 70’s and current day. He is known for his captivating entertainment prowess and his unbelievable recreation of Elton’s outrageous costumes.
Joey and Michael bring this experience to The Ultimate Tribute show adding funny performance bits, sing-a-long parts, and spontaneous humor. The Billy Joel Elton John Ultimate Tribute show is a night of hit songs, energetic performances, outrageous costumes, and true Rock ‘N’ Roll at its finest!
A one-of-a-kind original physical comedian, Barnaby’s amazing one-man variety show features original music, funny one-liners and an array of unique and incredible juggling feats. He delivers his laughs with a truly unique physicality. With his amazing skills and quirky sense of the ridiculous, Barnaby keeps as many laughs bouncing around as objects. His performance is as unusual and entertaining as his appearance and will have the crowd laughing and awestruck. You will not believe his many inventive tasks. Hang on! A Barnaby show is spellbinding, awesome and hysterical.
Barnaby utilizes a wide variety of props. He juggles balls, of course, (up to six at a time), soccer balls, rings and burning clubs, which lead to his big finale involving his guitar and a cigarette trick. Barnaby has an incredibly quick wit and special humor that is always enjoyed by his audience — young and old alike!
Face to Face and Barnaby will appear live at the Sedona Performing Arts Center at Red Rock High School on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00 p.m.
