‘Billy Joel: My Life, A Piano Man’s Journey’ is on display at the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame. It is the first of its kind dedicated exclusively to an inductee of LIMEHOF, located at 97 Main Street in Stony Brook, NY. In the exhibit, guests experience Joel’s life from his roots in Hicksville/Levittown through to his albums, tours and personal experiences. Over 500 fans of the Piano Man visited when the exhibit opened on November 24th.
“It was a thrill to see a long line of eager fans at our opening,” said LIMEHOF Chairman Ernie Canadeo. “The smiles on everyone’s faces after they experienced the exhibit and the Hall of Fame was priceless.”
The exhibit features 50+ years of Billy Joel memorabilia, including behind-the-scenes video, rare audio, vintage instruments and photos. Many pieces even come from Joel’s personal collection and have not been on display before. ‘Billy Joel: My Life, A Piano Man’s Journey’ was curated by renowned designer and LIMEHOF Creative Director Kevin O’Callaghan.
“It has been a thrill and an honor to work with Billy in creating this extraordinary testament to his life and music,” said O’Callaghan. “It is one of the highlights of my long career, and I’m sure visitors will be thrilled with the result.”
‘Billy Joel: My Life, A Piano Man’s Journey’ is supported and sponsored by Catholic Health, The Joel Foundation, Madison Square Garden Entertainment, Jake’s 58 Casino Hotel, The Haugland Group, M&T Bank, The EGC Group, D’Addario and Lessing’s Hospitality.
