Durban musicians team up to pay tribute to the legends that are, Billy Joel and Sting.
For over 40 years, Billy Joel and Sting have had a mutual respect and admiration for each other’s musicality, writing and performing ability. By combining the two artists, the Durban trio are hopeful that their audience will reminisce on memories of the astounding careers of the New York Piano man and Police lead singer.
In 2018 Billy Joel was quoted by the New York Times as saying “Sting and I always joke around: ‘Just for the hell of it, let’s join up and put a group together that explodes after, like, a year.’”
Expect to enjoy some of the greatest hits such as Every Breath You Take, Uptown Girl, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, You May Be Right and many more!
The show features ubiquitous Andy Turrell (Drums/Guitar), the incomparable John Ellis (Vocals/Guitar) and talented Evan Cullum (Piano/Vocals/Guitar).
John Ellis is a singer-songwriter from Durban, South Africa. The principal member, guitar-player, vocalist and songwriter for the internationally renowned and award-winning band Tree63, he relocated back to his hometown from America after many years of international success to pursue a solo career.
The multi-talented Andy Turrell, another Durban born musician, has entertained audiences throughout the country for many years. Performing throughout most of his musical career with Guitarists Dan Patlansky and Rowan Stuart, Andy, a brilliant guitarist in his own right, is also a phenomenal drummer and bass guitarist.
Durban born singer-pianist Evan Cullum has been performing in KZN for the past 5 years. Starring in productions such as “Rock n Roll Nerds” and “Elton and Friends”, Evan has also been part of the Rockwood Theatre Sibaya Hit shows “Megastars of Pop”, “Superbands” and “Hollywood Hits”.
