JIM WITTER'S PIANO MEN
A Musical Journey Through the 70's Featuring the Music of Elton John and Billy Joel
Do you remember where you were when you heard the news that Elvis had died? Do you still watch reruns of “The Partridge Family”, “Green Acres”, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “The Brady Bunch” or “All in the Family”? Are they still as funny now as they ever were? Were you glued to the TV console when Neil Armstrong took that monumental first step onto the moon or when President Richard Nixon shocked the nation by announcing his resignation?
Do memories from your younger years come barreling back whenever you hear Billy Joel's "Piano Man"?
Did you proudly fill your closet with those paisley print polyester shirts, hip hugger bell bottoms, wide belts and those “far out” platform shoes? Were you there when big hair was cool and when Jean Nate and British Sterling were hot? Was your car of choice a Ford Pinto, a Pontiac Le Mans or VW Bug?
If you've answered yes to all or any of the above, then you will not want to miss the Huntsman World Senior Games Concert and Celebration. Travel back to the 70's and the nostalgic world of Jim Witter's Piano Men (A Musical Journey Through the 70's Featuring the Music of Elton John and Billy Joel). The show is Tuesday, October 14 at 7:00 PM at the Dixie State College Burns Arena. Best of all, thanks to the generous support the Larry H Miller Group of companies, the show is absolutely free to everyone.
