The Movin’ Out Band is the smokin’ original band from the Tony Award-winning, Grammy nominated Billy Joel/Twyla Tharp Broadway musical “Movin’ Out”. The Movin’ Out Band includes several members of Billy Joel’s own band and is fronted by the incredibly talented pianist and vocalist Wade Preston, one of the original ‘Piano Man’ in the hit musical, hand-selected by Billy Joel himself.
A Movin’ Out Band show is a fun, upbeat event featuring the best of Billy Joel’s great classic rock music that audiences love and sing along to. The MOB, a moniker the band likes to use, performs all of the classic Billy Joel hits from “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant”, “Piano Man”, and “Movin’ Out” to “Just The Way You Are”, “Pressure”, “Angry Young Man”, “Big Shot”, “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me” and “New York State Of Mind”….plus other great songs from that “other” classic rock piano master, Elton John.
Front man Wade Preston was an original “Movin’ Out” Piano Man who fronted the show on Broadway for its entire 3-1/2 year run from 2002-2005 and went on to star in the national tour until 2008. He holds the record as the Piano Man with the most consecutive shows performed without a break and is the only Piano Man who has played the lead role and the synth chair at the same time. In June and July of 2008, Wade did the rehearsals and sound checks for Billy Joel for the historic “Last Play at Shea” performance where his job was described as the “Stunt Billy”.
The Movin’ Out Band consists of a who’s who in the New York Rock and Roll scene including current and past members of Billy Joel’s band. The cumulative working and recording resume of the MOB members include Diana Ross, Jeff Beck, Huey Lewis and the News, Ray Charles, Hall and Oates, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Bolton, Tower of Power, Ted Nugent, Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Brand X, Alice Cooper, Celia Cruz, Willie Colon, Trans Siberian Orchestra and so many more.
You and your guests will “Rock the night away” with this fabulous and talented band…..!
