BILLY JOEL Tribute
Featuring Mike Santoro
Born in Charlotte but raised in the bustling metropolis of China Grove, NC, multi-instrumentalist Evan Bloom was fascinated by music from an early age. Starting with piano at age 4, he studied violin, trombone, guitar, bass, drums, mandolin, and dobro by the age of 18, before studying Jazz Performance at UNCA.
Evan has performed across the United states and internationally, and has placed twice in the finals of the non-traditional string band competition at the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, WV. This festival is one of the most prestigious traditional music festivals in the world, drawing musicians from across the US and from more than 20 countries. With talent bridging many instruments and genres, Evan is humbled and excited to share the stage with us, paying tribute to Billy Joel's great musical legacy!
