Bobby McKey’s dueling piano bar is located in downtown National Harbor, Maryland, near Washington, D.C. They opened in 2008 and have been entertaining people with music ever since. Their show thrives on audience interaction, so audience members are expected to clap, cheer, and sing along.
No two shows are the same at Bobby McKey’s. They take requests and can perform any song in any genre, and they often incorporate other instruments like guitar, fiddle, and drums. They play, sing, dance, and make jokes, all while encouraging the audience to join in.
Their team consists of five amazingly talented performers, who all have backgrounds in singing and piano. Any combination of these five musicians could take the stage. Danny, who is originally from Buffalo and has a degree in musical theater, has been dueling pianos for more than eight years. He’s worked in dozens of clubs in several cities, and incorporates his theater knowledge into his performances by dancing and doing impressions.
Neil, another team member, trained in classical piano for years, but also loves performing modern music at Bobby McKey’s. He has played for many bands and is currently working on a solo album. Andrew, who hails from Pennsylvania, earned a degree in music education and has years of experience performing all over the United States. He has also performed with several award-winning barbershop quartets.
Jimmy studied music at the University of North Texas and has experience with piano, percussion, singing, and bass. He has spent more than ten years at a few different dueling piano bars, but now resides at Bobby McKey’s. Ronnie, the last member of the dueling piano team, has been playing piano his whole life and has traveled the country to perform. He’s known at Bobby McKey’s for his great stage presence, his humor, and his powerful voice.

On Mondays through Wednesdays they’re open from 6 p.m. to midnight, on Thursdays they’re open from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays they’re open from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., so you can sing along to the piano tunes for hours and hours.
