Hialeah, FL March 8, 2017 – Earning a well-deserved reputation as “Billy Joel’s hitmakers,” The Lords of 52nd Street toured and recorded with the legendary “Piano Man” for over a decade and played a major role in the worldwide success of Billy Joel’s formidable sound.

After a long separation, The Lords of 52nd Street reunited several years ago and are once again bringing the music they played in famous venues like Wembley Stadium, Royal Albert Hall, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, and Budokan, to audiences across America.

The Spam Allstars have totaled five releases so far and are busy working on a sixth.

They have been featured on Good Morning America, Mun2’s The Roof, CBSThis Morning, NPR’s All Things Considered, CBS4’s Making of the Latin Grammys, NBC 6’s Trendtrackers.
