Like Billy Joel, Mike grew up on Long Island mastering several instruments including bass guitar, guitar, piano and drums. He has worked with several members of the original Billy Joel’s Band over the years and his encyclopedic knowledge of the Billy Joel catalog has allowed him to give spot on performances. In an interview with The New York Times, Billy Joel recalled hearing Big Shot rehearse for the first time. “I’m backstage,” Billy Joel said, “and I’m hearing Mike singing, and I go, ‘Oh, that’s a recording of me.’ My crew goes, ‘No, that’s him.’ I go: ‘I know my voice. That’s me.’ And they said, ‘No, it’s Mike.’ ” So come to The Paramount on January 4th to eat, drink, and dance to the classic music of Billy Joel performed by Mike DeGuidice & Big Shot.
