“The Piano Men” strikes the nostalgic chords of the 1970s on Thursday, March 24
Pianist Jim Witter is bringing his critically-acclaimed multimedia show, “The Piano Men,” to the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m.
“The Piano Men” is an audio and visual journey down memory lane that will sweep you up in memorable stories and spectacular visuals. Amid captivating covers of Elton John and Billy Joel songs, such as “My Life, “Candle in the Wind,” Rocket Man,” Just the Way You Are,” the show presents the headlines, heroes, events, and TV shows that are synonymous with the 70s. Instead of mimicking the hits as originally performed, Witter leads his talented band mates from a grand piano as the show offers highlights of a decade long past, the music serving as the centerpiece to a full pop culture timeline.
Witter experienced a thriving country music career in the 1990s, garnering ten Top 10 radio hits in Canada and seven videos on Country Music Television. In time, he became nostalgic for the tunes of his youth, and the idea for “The Piano Men” was born.
Jim Witter’s “The Piano Men” has enjoyed sold-out performances, return engagements and rave reviews in theaters across North America, Great Britain and Dubai.
Witter’s music and songwriting have also won multiple awards and earned nominations from the Canadian Country Music Association, the Juno Awards, and the Dove Awards in Nashville. At the latter, Witter’s album was nominated for Inspirational Album of the year.
“The Piano Men” is presented as part of the Ashwaubenon P.A.C.’s Brodhagen Dental Care Touring Series.
Tickets to “The Piano Men” start at $29 and can be purchased online at ashwaubenonpac.org or by calling (920) 494-3401.
