If he is running through the audience trying to “high five” everyone to the tempo of his rockin’ band, or if he is crooning the softer side of his performance on stage alone, Leo always leaves them wanting more. His repertoire includes well known Billy Joel hits like “You May Be Right”…”I Go To Extremes”…”Just The Way You Are”…and the ever popular “Piano Man”. “Piano Man” performances have taken Leo from the East coast of Newfoundland Canada to the West coast of California United States. Encore performances keep him in demand in most major cities in between.” (Includes lunch buffet, dinner buffet, theater performance & transportation).
