Billy Joel – Billy Nation

A musical celebration of an artist whose catalog has over 33 top 40 hits, Billy Nation – A Tribute to Billy Joel entertains audiences with a high energy authentic concert experience of Billy Joel classics from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Complete with Billy’s signature grand piano, growling saxophone, rich harmonies, and audience engagement, Billy Nation captures Billy’s stylistic range with ease from anthems like ‘Piano Man’ to rocking songs like ‘You May Be Right’ to beautiful ballads like ‘Just the Way You Are.’

Billy Joel is undoubtedly one of the best songwriters of his generation. Billy Nation pays tribute to this world-class talent and does their songs justice with great performances and passionate live shows that bring back the authentic spirit of the piano man’s music. Billy Nation is not just a cover band; the group aims to capture not only the music but also the look and the aesthetics of what makes Billy Joel such a special artist. This tribute act will make you feel like you are experiencing one of Billy Joel’s concerts in his prime, bringing back the magic of that one-of-a-kind era of music. The show offers more than just music: Billy Nation goes to great lengths to recreate the magical atmosphere of those early Billy Joel shows, down to the aesthetics and the energy on the stage. This is perfect for those who want to re-live those magical memories, or even enjoying that experience for the first time, like traveling back in time.

Billy Nation consists of the finest professional musicians who are extremely experienced on the stage and in the studio and know what it takes to connect with the audience and give them a memorable experience in the best possible way! The group’s founder and leader, Adam Shapiro, has a lifelong connection with Billy Joel and his music. Much like the legendary artist himself, his late father was also a New York-based pianist and singer. Billy Nation is Adam’s way of honoring his father’s legacy through music. Adam himself was no stranger to the limelight before focusing on this project. He spent the last 25 years performing with some heavy hitters in the music industry, including Huey Lewis & The News, Kool & The Gang, as well as the king of funk, James Brown. He teamed up with some of the best musicians to create this one-of-a-kind tribute act who continue to attract crowds everywhere while spreading their passion for Billy Joel and his timeless music.

“They did a fantastic job. They did plenty of their own promotion, helped sell tickets, were professional, on time and had a great performance that the crowd enjoyed. Crowd was happy, band was happy, I was happy. That’s a good night.” – Paul Early, Murrieta, CA.

“What a fantastic show! Not only was the band great to work with, but the show they put on was incredible. Our venue was packed with guests singing and dancing along to their favorite songs all night. We are definitely looking forward to bringing Billy Nation back for future events.” – Joellen Ammann, Executive Director, Valley Cultural Foundation.

“I experienced a fabulous concert at Warner Ranch Park in Woodland Hills, California when I saw the Billy Joel tribute band, ‘Billy Nation’ performing Billy Joel’s songs from the 1970’s and 1980’s. The band is very faithful to the sound of Billy Joel’s band from the 1980’s. I really enjoyed their performance” – Kristal Kira, Los Angeles, CA.

“What a great show! You started out with my wife’s favorite song — Miami. You eventually did my favorite — Vienna. The show was amazing. I’m already looking forward to the next show. It was a blast.” – Josh Board, San Diego, CA.
