Pianist/singer Ryan Langevin pays tribute to two musical legends – Elton John and Billy Joel – with his show Piano Man, at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) in White Rock tonight (July 5)  at 7:30 p.m.

A passionate fan of both artists’ music from his youth, Langevin brings a decade of experience teaching voice and piano and performing in a wide spectrum of musical styles to his performance.

His recapturing of the essence of each performer’s appeal – aided by appropriate costuming – will bring a vivid live dimension to such Elton John classics as Saturday Night, Pinball Wizard, Daniel, Rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, Bennie and the Jets and Candle In The Wind, while rocking such Billy Joel favourites as My Life, She’s Always A Woman, Uptown Girl, Only The Good Die Young, It’s Still Rock n’ Roll and the immortal Piano Man.

Tickets are $39.50 (plus facility fees and service charges) at the box office, 604-536-7535 or online at www.whiterockplayers.ca
