Jazz
“No Ordinary Love.” Danielle Hicks Sings Sade
In a powerful tribute to the legendary British jazz band, Danielle Hicks and the Resistance honor the music of Sade Adu, the multi-talented songwriter, record producer and singer with the melodic soothing voice that intertwines with her jazzy soulful music. Her band has a string of multi-platinum albums with iconic hits such as “Smooth Operator,” “By Your Side,” “The Sweetest Taboo,” and, of course, “No Ordinary Love.” This is a jazz concert by Savannah’s most charismatic and soulful blues-rock singer, who has just released her first album. Danielle Hicks and her band The Resistance has an adoring fan base, and for good reason, she may be the only songstress in the South who could pull off this succulent tribute to Sade.

Cover/Tribute Band/Performer
Billy Joel & Elton John: Face-to-Face Tribute
Beginning in 1994, two iconic legends of Rock 'n’ Roll began a historic series of 200 shows that would thrill hundreds of thousands of concert goers all over the U.S. and around the world. Coming this Labor Day Weekend, two of the country’s best Billy Joel and Elton John tribute artists will join forces to recreate this amazing show at the Tybee Post Theater. Elton John and Billy Joel called their show "Face to Face," and together they made themselves the longest running and most successful concert tandem in pop music history. During these shows, the two played their own songs, each other's songs and performed duets together. It was pure luck that last year Bill Connors (aka Elton) and Hugh Tyner (aka Billy) found each other and decided to come together to form their own version of the Face-to-Face Show. Bill has played all over the country and on cruise ships as Elton for decades. Hugh has had a successful career playing all over the world, and was a regular on the Vegas strip for 18 years with his band Almost Billy Joel and the Allentown Band. This two-hour recreation of the Face-to-Face show is accompanied by a 6-piece live band.
