Our dueling piano shows provide classical ceremony music, dinner/cocktail background jazz, a great dueling piano show, and even DJ music.
Interactive With Guests
At many events featuring musicians, the music eventually sinks into the background as everyone mingles, chats, and otherwise forgets about the performance. Well, that almost never happens with dueling pianos as they engage with guests and incorporate a lot humor into their performance. One of the best features of dueling pianos is that they provide a lot of interactive entertainment for your guests. Participation from the audience is prevalent in most acts, and your guests will be singing and clapping along, talking back, and laughing at punch lines throughout the evening. Deciding on how much engagement you want is part of our planning process and is customized for every show.

You can even provide them with some trivia questions about the bride and groom to ask between songs, which is a great for having guests interact in a way that’s relevant to the wedded couple. Use your imagination to come up with ideas, or talk to them to help them customize their performance to your event.
