Dueling pianos, when delivered well, is a tremendously engaging entertainment concept that incorporates high-spirited music of all styles, improv comedy and lively audience interaction…and, as you would expect, a double dose of great piano playing.
Originating in New Orleans some 60 years ago, dueling pianos has enjoyed a burgeoning popularity in taverns and nightclubs across the country; yet, this two-piano concept is seldom seen outside the smoky barrooms of its birth. But, with innovation and determination, Dueling Pianos founders, Cristina and Van, are succeeding in expanding the appeal and marketability of dueling pianos.
This effort has produced major successes where duelers had dared not venture before, such as Las Vegas Casinos, Disney cruise ships, elegant socials, governmental events, fancy weddings, ticketed concerts and large corporate events.
The Dueling Pianos have headlined individually and together at many prominent piano venues; including: the Pat O’Brien’s Clubs in New Orleans and Cancun, the New York-New York and Harrah’s casinos in Las Vegas, andRoyal Caribbean, Holland America and Disney cruise lines.
Dueling Pianos are dedicated to bringing you absolutely the best dueling pianos entertainment on the planet, with the highest standards of professionalism, courtesy and service to our clients and to our industry allies.
