“Songs In The Attic” is a musical tribute conceived and presented with a tremendous amount of detail by Long Island veteran singer/piano player David Clark. He continues to gain notoriety with stunningly accurate piano playing, lead vocals, and an eerily similar stage look to the Piano Man himself while engaging the audience with wit and humor. Having performed to full venues and private functions from NY/NJ & CT to RI, NH, PA, St. Louis, WV and FL, this is the perfect Billy Joel tribute show to present in any venue, theater, casino or festival.
