Introducing America’s most authentic tribute to the legendary BILLY JOEL…

Daniel Rodriguez Jr., Steven Daley, Evan Bloom, and Fred Updegraft are, by definition, The Stranger band.

Formed in the summer of 2009, THE STRANGER has amassed an impressive list of clientele, high profile events, festivals and concerts that would rival many national acts. With all members residing in the Charlotte North Carolina area, and several decades of experience between them, The Stranger is a musical powerhouse that is recognized as one of the best and most entertaining live bands in the business.

BILLY JOEL is one of the world's most beloved musical artists of the past 100 years. So naturally, paying tribute to that level of talent and doing it justice is something special...

The Stranger IS the most authentic tribute to this celebrated icon. Comprised of some of the best and most experienced musicians in the business, this band brings together an authentic replication of Billy's timeless music, crowning it with soulful, spot on vocals that makes listening to a Billy Joel song so special.

Like Joel himself, Mike resembles, sounds, entertains and has the stage presence of Billy Joel in his prime.
