Billy Joel

Brian Harris IS Simply Billy!

Trained as a classical pianist at the prestigious Hartt School of Music, University of Hartford, he is also an experienced jazz pianist, served three years as pianist in the Fourth United States Army Band, and has played countless shows all over the country and abroad as pianist/keyboardist/vocalist.

Growing up with the heart of a true rock & roller, Brian has always been drawn to performing high-energy shows with wild outfits, over-the-top virtuoso piano playing and meticulously styled vocals. In 2012, he created Simply Elton as a tribute to the live performances of Sir Elton John, and Simply Billy - the music of Billy Joel - soon followed.

Both shows pay homage to two of the greatest piano men in history, recreating all the energy, costuming, piano playing and GREAT music that make up every Elton and Billy performance!
