DUELING PIANOS

Dueling Pianos is a massive "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. During the high-energy show, two piano players sit across from each other and trade songs as various sections of the audience are pitted against each other (men vs. women, country vs. rock etc.) Each show is different because it is all request. Audience members are regularly called up on stage for a bit of good humored fun. We dare you to not sing along!

MICHAEL VINCENT BAND

The band was born 12 years ago in Central New Hampshire when three outcasts met on common ground for their love of the blues. Throughout school, they reminded active as a trio and picked up a local fan base as word spread around their small state. In 2009, a road trip landed the band in Mississippi where a college education’s worth of blues schooling took place for the next several years. This is when the band began hitting the road hard playing from San Antonio to Key West to Boston, and everywhere in between. Thousands of miles of road and hundreds of honky-tonks serve as the backdrop to what the MVB does; Play The Blues.
