SCENES – A BILLY JOEL EXPERIENCE
7:30 – 9:00 PM

Sponsored By:

Formerly known as Cold Spring Harbor, Scenes – A Billy Joel experience, has been performing throughout New England and beyond since 2013. Their mission from the beginning was never to play impersonator, but instead celebrate and recreate the music of Billy Joel to the highest and most authentic standard, bringing people the $400 Billy Joel concert experience, for a reasonable price that all fans can afford! Their almost ten-year journey has lead them to some amazing venues and events, most notably Touch of Texas in Binghamton, NY, and the Newburyport Yankee Homecoming celebration playing to more than 3500 people. From specific piano sounds that Billy uses himself, to the Billy Joel classic Ray Ban sunglasses, this show is not to be missed!

While still a member of the band he recorded his solo record “Barry Goudreau”, which was released on the Epic record label. The single “Dreams” received heavy airplay but the controversy surrounding the album led to his leaving the band.

After leaving “Boston” he formed the band “Orion the Hunter”. They had a hit single with the song “So you Ran”, and toured with “Aerosmith” on their “Back in the Saddle” tour.

Barry started “Barry Goudreau’s Engine Room” with his former bandmates Maes, now on keyboards and singing lead, along with Archibald. Tony DePietro joined on the drums. The band is augmented with back up singers Joanie Cicatelli, Terry O’Soro and Mary Beth Maes, who are described as the band’s “Special Sauce”. Their second CD “The Road” a follow up to their first “ Full Steam Ahead” is available now.  The band will be performing tracks from the new record, as well cuts from his other projects, and of course some of “Boston’s “biggest hits.
