Fans watching a Billy Joel tribute band were treated to a surprise appearance by the Piano Man himself.
Joel was in the audience Friday night (June 24) with his wife, Alexis Roderick, at a show in Huntington, New York, when he decided to join the band Big Shot for a three-song set.

Newsday reports Joel jammed on covers of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” done Joe Cocker-style, and the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women.”

The native Long Islander told the crowd he lives “down the road” from the Paramount Theater, in Huntington, Long Island.
