HAWLEY- On Saturday, July 12, Wade Preston, Billy Joel’s back-up returns for two shows in one night at Harmony Presents in the underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill.
   "It's not often a man can sit in front of a piano and command full attention." said Jill Carletti, Creative Director. "Wade Preston's dexterity alone is enough to drop a stadium full of jaws, but you don’t need to go to a stadium to experience the awe."
      She added, "The underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill is an intimate space where the beauty of live performance shines. Embodying enough blazing talent to ignite the stage solo, this excellent musician and performer is best known for his role as the piano man in Billy Joel’s Broadway hit Movin’ Out. He is an original cast member doing the full 3 1/2 year run on Broadway and often guested on both tours. When rehearsals of the Billy Joel band are required, Billy hires Wade as his stand in."
      Show times are at 7 and at 9:30 p.m. These concerts will take place at 8 Silk Mill Drive off Route 6 in Hawley. Audiences are encouraged to arrive early for preferred seating. Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.harmonypresents.com or in person at AMSkier Insurance Agency located at 209 Main Ave. in Hawley.
   Cocoon offers wine, beer, snacks and mixed drinks on site at the shows and an advance ticket serves as a coupon for 20 percent off Ledges Hotel for a limited time.
