'The River of Dreams' Live Cover by Michael Cavanaugh

By Michael Cavanaugh / YouTube / June 8, 2017

For about a week, I'd been listening to different mixes of Billy Joel's The River of Dreams.  Then, as usual, I checked YouTube to see if there were any good covers.  This was the first one I stumbled across.

"Who IS this guy?!," I thought as I watched the video for the first time.

Wikipedia.org's article says he is "most famous for playing the piano and lead vocals in the band for the Broadway musical Movin' Out.  Cavanaugh was handpicked by Billy Joel for this musical and appeared in the show for three years and [more than] 1300 performances, receiving many accolades."

On top of that, it says he resides in Las Vegas (where I've lived for decades).

What can I say?  I don't get out much anymore.

This is my "Cover of the Month" - Michael Cavanaugh performing The River of Dreams live with a full orchestra and a great band.
