Jules Benjamin and his excellent four-piece band are back in Evesham on 31 May playing the great music of Billy Joel.
All of Joel’s great songs will be there: Uptown Girl, Always a Woman to Me, We Didn’t Start the Fire, Just the Way You Are, Still Rock’n’Roll To Me, Movin’ Out, New York State Of Mind… and of course the peerless Piano Man.
Jules Benjamin is one of the Midlands’ most accomplished performers and songwriters. He has travelled the world, played for royalty, made numerous appearances on domestic and foreign TV, and shared a stage with or supported the likes of Olly Murs, Status Quo, Glen Tilbrook and Danny Williams. Jules is also a member of the 60s music band New Amen Corner, working with artists such as Chris Farlowe, PP Arnold and Billy J Kramer, and has released 11 albums of his own songs.
