Wade Preston from Billy Joel‘s Broadway hit Movin’ Out delivers an impeccable show with time honored favorites and original compositions. It’s not often a man can sit in front of a piano or a keyboard and command full attention, but Mr. Preston can drop a stadium full of jaws, keeping his audiences engaged and participating.
Wade played the Piano Man role in Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp’s Broadway hit Movin’ Out for it’s entire 3 ½ year run, and starred in the national tours for the next few years. He still occasionally does concerts with the Movin’ Out Band™.
When a considerable amount of additional musicians were added to Billy Joel‘s band for his Last Play at Shea performances, Wade was asked to do virtually all of the rehearsals and sound checks to prepare for these historic concerts. His job description: “Stunt Billy.”
Prior to Movin’ Out, Wade was well known on the west coast as the preeminent boogie pianist, revered for his rollicking performances, stunning technical abilities, spirited versatile singing and sense of humor.
Wade was also well known for his original music, and so, he is happy to announce the availability of his brand new CD:
Wade has finally finished his long awaited CD Lost In the Noise, featuring Jon Ventre on bass and Steve Kurilla on drums, as well as a number of orchestral musicians to add to the depth of eclecticism in his music, is now available here:

Note from Wade: This project took a year and a half to create. It’s a concept record and it’s about an hour long. I’m very happy with how it came out. It’s quite eclectic, very Wade. I truly hope you enjoy.
