The YMCA Boulton Center celebrates the 8 year anniversary of the inception of the theater as a part of the cultural fabric of Long Island. There will be a pre-reception in the Center's Higbie Lounge followed by a performance by The Movin' Out Band:
With roots in classical, boogie, and New Orleans barrel house and second-line style piano playing, Preston mixes Billy Joel / Elton John vocal styles with Ray Charles passion. His keyboard abilities reflect his classical training mixed with the passionate abandon of Jerry Lee Lewis.
Preston played the role of the Piano Man in the Billy Joel / Twyla Tharpe Broadway hit Movin' Out since it's inception in May of 2002 until it closed in December of 2005, and is an original cast member. He also covered the synth chair in the band. He holds the record as the Piano Man with the most consecutive shows performed without a break, and he is the only Piano Man who has played the lead role and the synth chair at the same time.
