It has been said that a dueling piano show is quite literally "the most fun one can have with...”, well, the most fun one can have! On Friday, May 19, 2017 beginning at 8:00 pm, you can be the judge. As a matter of fact, you can be part of it! Please keep in mind that this show is rated PG-13 which means it may contain innuendos, puns, safe jokes and language that might not be appropriate for all ages.
The show is a "to the top of your lungs" sing along with all your friends. Two grand pianos are center-stage with a team of outrageously talented pianists that seem to know every song ever written. Each show is different because it's all request and you or your friends might even get called up on stage for a bit of good humored fun and some unforgettable youtube moments. “Think YOU won't sing along...Just TRY not too.... I dare ya!” - Bill Connors (pianist)
Dueling piano shows are request-oriented, interactive, sing-a-long shows wherein two piano players sit across from each other and trade songs. The dueling piano audience is used for the dueling aspect of the show. Audience members are pitted one-side-against-the-other. Examples of rivalries include country vs. rock, men against women, etc. This dueling piano interactive concept has grown rapidly the past few years and shows no sign of letting-up. Why? One very simple reason: people love to interact and have fun.
With the pianos at the forefront, the piano players act as "ring masters". Known as the Entertainment Directors, they are responsible for maintaining enthusiasm and maximizing laughs. Hand-picked from only the finestregional talent, they are experts at keeping audience members involved, happy and content.
Dueling piano shows often take unexpected turns. Tangents may include involving staff members, changing song lyrics or roasting popular audience members. Everyone is drawn together by the camaraderie and nostalgia to form one large, synergistic party - swaying to the music and bellowing-out familiar lyrics. This concept is based on the simple fact that everyone wants to have a good time. The Dueling Piano "experience" is not only incredible fun, but also very unique. Guests aren't just entertained by the piano players - they become part of the show!
