Fans watching a Billy Joel tribute band were treated to a surprise appearance by the Piano Man himself.

Joel was in the audience Friday night with his wife, Alexis Roderick, at a show in Huntington, New York, when he decided to join the band Big Shot for a three-song set.

Newsday reports Joel jammed on covers of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” done Joe Cocker-style, and the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women.”

Joel wrapped up with one of his biggest hits, “You May Be Right,” which Big Shot bandleader Michael DelGuidice blended with Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll.”

The native Long Islander told the crowd he lives “down the road” from the Paramount Theater, in Huntington, Long Island.
