A celebration of Billy Joel & Elton John return to Alexander's Live!
Your Song – It’s Just The Way You Are ….
A Celebration of the Songs of Elton John and Billy Joel
Performed by John Reilly & Lewis Nitikman
Last year, singer songwriter John Reilly and Canadian pianist and songwriter Lewis Nitikman played Alexander’s for the first time, celebrating the music of Sir Elton John and were so thrilled by the fabulous feedback and wonderful vibe they received from the sell-out audience, they are delighted to be returning in 2020 and this time they are adding some Billy Joel tunes to their repertoire !!
The concert is not a tribute, but a celebration of the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. John Reilly, whose albums have received both national and international air play, sings the songs very accurately, but in his own inimitable style and also plays percussion and harmonica, Lewis Nitikman, who is Berkelee trained and has produced 3 gold albums in Canada, plays piano and bass keyboards.
This will be a truly unique evening of stunning vocals and outstanding piano, . It is a totally live performance, expect to hear all your favourite Elton and Billy tunes including ‘Your Song’, ‘Piano Man’, ‘Daniel’, ‘Uptown Girl’, Candle in the Wind’, ‘New York State of Mind’ ,’Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ etc., but also some you may not be so familiar with. It’s not a tribute, it’s a true celebration of these wonderful tunes!

Alexanders Live! Has been with us here in Chester for 30 years.
Tucked away in the picturesque location of Rufus Court with a fabulous outside seating area backing on to the Deans Field of Chester Cathedral, Alexanders has been entertaining locals and visitors with a full range of first class, live entertainment for decades.
This is the official home of comedy in Chester – as every Friday night our very own local comedian and superstar MC Danny Mcloughlin welcomes many epic comedians to the venue including UK greats like Russell Kane, Jason Mountford and Jack Whitehall. We also have some superb local talent who Danny encourages to take to the Alexanders stage to launch their career or just have some fun and banter with the audience.
Alexanders is also home to a diverse collection of local, regional and national artists and has definitely become the go-to venue for the best tribute bands the UK has to offer – including Crowded Scouse, Fleetwood Bac, True Gold and Thunderstruck (ACDC). Open mic nights also feature on the weekly line-up.
This venue really does have it all and everyone is welcome. Students mix with city workers and couples and groups of all ages flock for the unique ambience and super-eclectic mix of great quality entertainment. The drinks will flow and the food is good, and a great night is guaranteed for all!
