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!
