Billy Joel in the Yarra Valley in Melbourne, 23rd July 2017


Introducing “Billy Joel in the Yarra Valley: In a Charity State of Mind”.

Hi there, my name is Jules and for those that do not know me I have been involved in the Kidney Kar Rally (a major fundraiser for Kidney Health Australia) for 9 years.

This rally raises awareness and money for children living with and affected by kidney disease.

As part of my strategy for fundraising for the Kidney Kids (and my involvement in this year’s Kidney Kar Rally I have finally arranged this event (yes … has been on the white board for 9 years).

My amazing brothers Craig and Ashley Smith will lead this Billy Joel music event (with band) and provide a wonderful afternoon playing classics on a hill overlooking the Yarra Valley region.


This event will raise much needed funds for the Kidney Kids Camp through Kidney Health Australia.

An amazing family day afternoon with Craig Smith and band with auction items, live music and spectacular views across the Yarra Valley Victoria wine region.

A tribute to Billy Joel by Craig W. Smith and band is ready to thrill this special audience with dynamic and authentic jazz interpretations of the compositions of one of rock’s most iconic performer/songwriters.

Take a journey through the life and marriage upheavals of the Piano Man through quirky anecdotes and the personal lyrics of a true balladeer.

Relive favourite tunes like: Piano Man, Only the Good Die Young, Big Shot, My Life, Scenes from a Parisian Jazz Club and more …

FREE ENTRY for children/kids under 18. Cheese platters available to buy and drinks at bar prices.

Support us now … ticket entry fee ($30) goes to the kidney kids fundraising through Kidney Health Australia. The other amount goes to Event Brite.

I really hope you can join me on this afternoon on Sunday 23 July 2017 …

All the best
