      Named after Billy Joel’s monster 1989 album, Storm Front, with vocalist, Michael O’Brien is “the real-deal Billy Joel!” They are in a “New York State of Mind” ‘cause these young guys are from Albany, NY, but they perform all over the country—in clubs, casinos, concerts, and re-create the great music with a dedication to the sound and lyrics. From “Just the Way You Are” to “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “Captain Jack,” “Say Good-bye to Hollywood,” and on and on, you’ll hear the greatest hits— sung to perfection—by Michael O’Brien and Storm Front!
