"See What Fans Are Saying About "Storm Front"!!!"

Tribute bands amaze me because they dedicate their entire set list to a single band or performer who has influenced their lives. Although Albany is the home to many great original bands, let’s face it … sometimes it’s exciting to sing along to your favorite influential artists. To be a great Tribute Band, it takes a lot of talent. There is a particular sound and quality the audience expects.

If you love the great American pianist/singer-songwriter Billy Joel and are “All in the mood for a melody”, check out Albany’s own Piano Man – Mike O’Brien, as he and Storm Front perform for the capital district on Saturday, October 18th at Northern Lights!

1.this is a very good band, and speaks to the fact that music, in all its forms, should have a major component of enjoyment. there is a place for this obviously…

i also think it is important to note that many times band members use vehicles like this successfully to finance their own, original projects. some people give guitar lessons, some play covers. it’s all good.

finally, a salute to one of the band-members of storm front who i have enjoyed dealing with to date: Chris Baird. You can see him in kings english, which is also a very popular cover group, and he has done his own projects. professional and reliable in all his iterations.

2.I would like to see these guys perform. I grew up listening to billy joels great music and think its great somebody took the time to collaborate to all his music. These guys I’m guessing are very talented and look forward to seeing them in albany sometime.

4.I happened to be in Times Square and caught their show at BB Kings this past summer. GREAT show! I’ve been a lifelong fan of Mr. Joel’s music and these guys really do bring Billy’s music to life. I was mesmerized at how close their lead singer sounds like a young Joel. Not the older scratchy Joel, but the young smooth Joel I fell in love with as a kid. And their sax player is phenomenal(and easy on the eyes ladies hee hee)!! Actually, I expected to see a bunch of old men up there. I was really surprised to see that a bunch of young men can replicate his music so well!
All right. I’m done being a critic. I’ll definitely be there! So Mr Saxman! My name is Suzie! PLEASE PLEASE dedicate one of those sweet solos to me!!!

5.Don’t go changin “Hey Thank You” to try and please me. I saw these guys last year and thought it was a good show. The addition of the two horn guys to go along with the Sax guy, is fantastic! Now they are an awesome show! What really impressed me was the 4 part harmony. Separates the men from the boys.
