The Lords of 52nd Street, best known for collaborating with Billy Joel, is set to perform at Rivers Casino on Friday, Aug. 26, at 9:30 p.m.

The group, featuring Richie Cannata on the saxophone, Liberty Devitto on drums and Russell Javors on guitar, recorded and toured with Joel for the better part of 10 years throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Together, they recorded Grammy Award-winning albums such as 52nd Street, Glass Houses and Nylon Curtain.

Following a 30-year separation, the collective reunited in 2014 to continue touring and performing songs from their catalog. Fan favorites featured in shows include “My Life,” “New York State of Mind,” “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me” and “You May Be Right.”   

“We’re excited to host this legendary band that helped Billy Joel create some of his timeless songs,” said Justin Moore, the general manager of Rivers Casino, in a press release. “The crowd will be in for an unforgettable performance of deep cuts from the band’s amazing hits.”
