“I have found over the years that it takes passion and dedication to be successful in this business we call music. The Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra was just that. A night of "The Music of Elton and Billy" was one of the most passionate performances I have been a part of since actually performing with Billy and Elton together for over ten years. Joe Boucher did an excellent job as both Billy and Elton. Backed by a four piece rhythm section and a fifty two piece orchestra made it an event I was proud to be a part of and am looking forward to doing again!”   Liberty DeVitto Billy Joel Band drummer 1976 - 2006

“This is a fantastic show. As an arts administrator, I can say that the group is incredibly well prepared, friendly, and easy to work with. As a musician who has performed the show, the charts are great, the music is fantastic, and the audiences love it.” Carolyn Nishon Executive Director Portland Symphony Orchestra

“Piano Men is a wonderful, surefire hit. Joe Boucher’s first rate singing and playing of these classic and ever-popular songs is brilliant. Backed up by Chris Eastburn's masterful lush orchestrations, Billy and Elton's classic songs sounded better than ever. This show really connects and resonates with the audience. Everyone (orchestra included) had a wonderful evening enjoying music they have loved for years.”   Robert Lehmann Conductor, North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra

"Piano Men is a well-crafted show that is easy to put together and delivers the big hits.  All the technical details, from the library books to the sound and lighting arrangements, were as smooth as can be.  The New Year's Eve audience started loud, and got whole lot louder as the night went on…"   Peter Rubardt Pensacola Symphony, Music Director Meridian Symphony, Music Director Gulf Coast Symphony, Music Director

"Working as I do, with regional orchestras with limited budgets, rehearsal time is limited, particularly with Pops concerts. Joe Boucher and his group have extensive orchestral experience, are supremely organized and work well with orchestral musicians, integrating them in the performance and being inclusive. Their experience is only topped by their excellent musicianship and ease to work with. The charts are world-class and I loved learning them. Front man Boucher is everything I hoped for and more: professional but friendly, serious but fun, he was an absolute joy. His piano playing and singing is as good as the real thing. If you want a slam-dunk pops show, this is the one..." Peter Shannon, Conductor Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra, Savannah, Georgia Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Jackson, Tennessee
