Named “Corporate Entertainer of the Year” in 2013 by Reuters, Cavanaugh is a charismatic performer also known for his starring role in the Grammy- and Tony-nominated Broadway production of “Movin’ Out” (featuring the music of Billy Joel). His high energy symphony orchestra performances invoke the spirit of classic singer / songwriters with live, full symphony orchestra accompaniment.

The dynamic set list for this show will feature creative reinterpretations of classic Elton John hits, interspersed with additional songs by rock & roll legends Wings, Styx, The Eagles and more.
