"The Billy joel Tribute UK is presented by singer Gaz Jenkins and rather excellent it is too! There must be lots of work for a solo who is honest enough to admit that his piano is merely a prop and the true strength is in the show, the voice and the showmanship" Mark Ritchie, Viva Showcase Productions 2018
