Deryn’s new Piano Men show is a 45 min rock ‘n’ roll rollercoaster of banger hits from the two best piano players / songwriters in the history of the planet!

A very devoted and loyal homage to the great Sir Elton John and the enigmatic Mr Billy Joel.
With a surprise at the beginning of the show from the No 1 Pianist that started it all off… The late, great Ludwig van Beethoven

The show is organic, loud and live…capturing the best hits of these two legends of the piano from the stage to the stadium.

All songs are fully charted for a live band and the musical arrangements are faithful to the live concert versions that everybody knows and loves.
From Yankee Stadium to Moscow.

From sing-a-long ballads to rock anthems you get up and dance to.
