The Lords of 52nd Street is New York’s favorite band comprised of Liberty DeVitto on drums, Richie Cannata on saxophone, and Russell Javors on rhythm guitar. The band recorded, toured and performed extensively with Billy Joel during the 70s and 80s. The Lords aided in the creation of hit records with Billy Joel including, The Stranger, 52nd Street, and Glass Houses.

The band is reuniting again for the first time in 30 years, and their performance is an experience that no one should miss.
Having reunited following their induction into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2014 as the “Lords” (A moniker coined by late producer Phil Ramone ), the band has played a number of shows along with special guests including David Clark from “Songs In The Attic” and Mike Delguidice from “Big Shot”. Oh, and rumor has it that Mike will be performing some of his own solo material!
