The day after “The Piano Man” Concert (August 29) did those of you who attended find yourselves absentmindedly humming Billy Joel and Elton John tunes? It would not be surprising. Tad Management multi-talented star, Terry Davies, delivered yet another amazing performance of these two pop icon’s best loved songs. Terry, together with his outstanding band and son, Nick Davies, on keyboard and vocals, seamlessly moved between Billy Joel and Elton John favorites like Your Song, In the Middle of the Night, Circle of Life, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, Rocket Man, Candle in the Wind and Bitch is Back.
The group also performed a medley of Pinball Wizard, Saturday Night, Philadelphia Freedom, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Can You Feel the Love Tonight and Levon.
After this exhaustive production Terry asked for a few audience requests. He was met with immediate shout outs and satisfied them with renditions of Uptown Girl, Crocodile Rock, We Didn’t Start the Fire and Daniel.
Long after the show should have concluded, Terry and his team continued to entertain the crowd. Terry teamed up with his son, Nick, who is equally talented (many will remember him as one of the December ’62 Jersey Boys performers). Together with the band and back-up singers they enthusiastically pumped out versions of Still Rock and Roll to Me, Keeping the Faith and Don’t Let the Sun Come Down On Me.
At one point Terry’s son suggested making a narrated video using his cell phone to post on Tad Management’s Facebook page. The audience was happy to comply! With Terry narrating the footage, a video of residents doing a sing-along was created. Terry invited residents to check their Facebook page the following day to see the results.
The audience loved every minute of the show and indicated their appreciation with a lengthy round of applause at the conclusion.
