Tonight's line-up of the band included Mike DelGuidice
on lead vocals, Ken Cino on lead guitar, John Scarpulla on saxophone, Mike Sorrentino on drums, Carmine Giglio on keys and Nick Dimichino on bass.
Their set included such Billy Joel classics as the piano-driven "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," "Movin' Out," "Keeping the Faith" and "Say Goodbye to Hollywood"; however, they also covered songs by Journey such as "Lights" and the inspirational tune "Don't Stop Believin'," as well as Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" and "Your Song," both of which were done solely on piano by DelGuidice, after he serenaded the Wantagh audience to "She's Always a Woman." They even threw in a cover of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," and DelGuidice displayed his piercing pipes on Aerosmith's "Dream On."
Of course, no Big Shot show at Mulcahy's is complete without the sassy "Only The Good Die Young," and "Piano Man" with the incredible Steven Fileti on harmonica.
The fan-favorite song of the night was the upbeat "We Didn't Start the Fire," where guitar player Ken Cino was able to give the fans a history lesson, coupled by DelGuidice's soaring vocals, and saxophone player John Scarpulla stomping his feet to the infectious beats.
Overall, Big Shot
delivered at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall once again. Their live music was a great segue to Easter weekend. Their concert garnered an A rating.
