Terry Davies, aka the Piano Man, thanks to his deftness at the keyboard, brings his Neil Sedaka repertoire to the Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center stage on Saturday.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22/$25 and are available at the Elks box office. Call 777-1370 or log onto www.prescottelkstheater.com to buy tickets, which will also be on sale at the door one hour before the concert begins.

Davies, with TAD Management, has produced numerous shows for Elks theatre audiences and has performed himself in Elks shows, most recently in "The Magic of Manilow" tribute to Barry Manilow.

In a desire to "freshen up" TAD Management offerings, Davies and his partners have come up with the "Sedaka Legacy" concert.

The music of pop rock star Sedaka stretches back to the 1960s, and the show on Saturday will revive melodies such as "Calendar Girl" and "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" from that era, Davies said.

The 1970s Sedaka tunes will include such hits as "Laughter in the Rain," Davies said, adding the show will also feature some lesser-known tunes of Sedaka that "are really good songs."

The big band accompanying Davies includes a full horn section, and full backing vocals will enrich the show as well, he said.

"The show is such a passionate show," Davies said, as are other TAD concerts, which "keep the audience from beginning to end. We make them laugh. We make them cry."
