Thank you, first of all, for being so easy to work with. It made my life so easy onsite, that I could leave you with Simon and the AV team, to organise yourselves for the evening. The Awards element of the evening worked really well, so many thanks for supporting with this, and for your creative stings of music for the winners’ walk up!
Thank you once again for joining us in Gleneagles. I hope we can work together again on a future event.

Birthday Entertainment

From the easy front-end communication and laid-back vibe, to the 'on-stage' effort and entertainment on the night, PianoFactor were just great. As an aside, the set-up looks great in a a venue too. The music they play is so varied thanks to the chance for people to put in requests, something for everyone. Thanks for a fabulous evening helping us to celebrate Dad's big birthday ... he/we loved every minute of it!

wedding night

These guys are absolutely AMAZING!!! Nothing was too much to ask and they made our wedding night so special entertaining everyone at the wedding from 2 to 82! The only downside was that my husband and I had planned to leave so missed out on some of the music and had to listen to everyone else's rave reviews the day after. Our first dance was made even more special with your wonderful singing and my husband and I will never forget it. Thank You so much! xxx

When we attended a friends wedding last summer where PianoFactor Duelling Pianos were providing the evening entertainment, we knew right away we HAD to book them for our wedding in April this year and we weren't disappointed. Myself and my husband together with all our guests had a fabulous evening of entertainment and high quality live music. We booked the Gold package. PianoFactor are fab, very approachable and will play any style of music - classics for the older generation as well as party tunes for the youngsters. So many people have commented on the amazing evening entertainment and my niece our young bridesmaid even became part of the band for the evening. This company is a must for any wedding :-) A BIG thank you once again

Cheshire Police Ball 2014

On behalf of Cheshire Police Federation and the Rankin family, can I thank you so much for your efforts on the night, we raised over £12,000 to assist the independent living of Georgia Rankin, the 16yr old daughter of one of our own officers
Georgia, or Lil G as she likes to be known, has skeletal dysplasia which caused her bones to fuse when she was just 18 months old. Lil G is just 80cm in height and will never grow any taller - but of course great things come in small packages! Georgia now has to try & live independently in a BIG world where everything is a complete challenge- so we hope to raise funds to help.

I do not know where to even began to show how thankful me and my new husband are for the AMAZING performance these guys gave at our wedding in August 2014. Every single person was up dancing (even those who like to just prop themselves up at a bar and drink all night, the elderly, the boring...) They made our wedding perfect. All the guests have been raving about Piano factor ever since. These guys clearly love what they do and go all out to please the crowd. Again just thank you so much for everything!! xx

Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing performance you did for our wedding. We loved every moment, it was exactly how we wanted our evening to be - fun with lots of laughing and dancing! The atmosphere you created was contagious and we had so many comments from our guests about how fabulous you were. We are so pleased you performed for us and will certainly be highly recommending you!You are all incredibly talented but the real beauty was how you interacted with each other and our guests - Everyone was gutted when it was time to stop! In short, thank you for making our wedding evening perfect for us.

PianoFactor have performed their Duelling Pianos show several times for me. I was impressed by the professionalism displayed by PianoFactor, from my original enquiry through to the arrival and set-up for the first show. Then they played! These guys are just brilliant at what they do - great pianists and vocalists - and awesome entertainers. Book them. You will not be disappointed!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with PianoFactor who performed various well known tunes to a crowd of over 1000 high profile individuals during the drinks reception of 'An Evening with The Stars' event. The event took place at Battersea Evolution on Wednesday 16th October to raise money for the BBC's Children In Need charity. Thank you again for everything as the feedback has been fantastic, you certainly added the WOW factor to the event! Paragon Events are very much looking forward to working with PianoFactor in the near future.

I’ve seen dueling pianos a few times in The New York New York Hotel in Las Vegas and desired something similar for our customer event in the evening after a trade show. The PianoFactor team literally ROCKED THE HOUSE! Our guests together with our event team had an amazing night and everyone felt that the music was played with passion. I can wholeheartedly recommend the PianoFactor Duelling Pianos show.

As an American/British couple we were trying to bring the "dueling pianos" concept to a pub in Belgravia.
Carl was wonderful! He and his group accommodated the space, played fabulously and just added tremendously to the evening.They were perfect! Crowd of 60 - all ages - nothing but rave reviews!

After deciding that for my wedding I wanted a duelling piano show and nothing else... the hunt began online. PianoFactor was the second one to answer my inquiry and they hooked me with their openness, flexibility and friendliness. I was very upfront with what I was envisioning and with the fact that I was a student and budgeting half my wedding money to them. PianoFactor were prompt in coming up with a line-up and a plan to suit my needs musically and financially. They DID NOT disappoint. The show was amazing, exactly what I envisioned. I danced for 5 hours straight. had to take off my shoes the last 2hr. I would recommend these guys in a heart beat....and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!! Rock on guys!!!

evening entertainment
PianoFactor provided the evening entertainment for our wedding. All I can say is that they were amazing!! Everyone was up dancing and that is no mean feat at a wedding where the guests age ranged from 3 yrs to 93 years!! They played a real mix of songs and everyone has commented on how great it was.

We first saw the idea of duelling pianos in Las Vegas and never thought we could replicate the same experience in the UK. They are an extremely talented bunch and it provided the perfect entertainment for our evening reception - we cannot thank them enough!!

evening entertainment
I have been a fan of Duelling Pianos since I went to the USA in 2009 and visited a few Duelling piano bars in Las Vegas and Howl at the moon in Chicago. I was keen to see if the UK had anything to offer and was surprised to come across a few companies providing duelling pianos.

We have now tried 3 Duelling Pianos companies over the last 3 years for our Christmas party and I have to Say that PianoFactor BLOW the competition out of the water!!! There has been nobody that comes even close to their professional, fun and energetic show.
These guys are the REAL DEAL and we have them booked in for our party for the next 2 years.

I first heard PianoFactor back in 2009 when my cousin booked them to play at her wedding. They were fantastic, so when I got engaged myself in 2012 PianoFactor was the first band I approached.
From the initial consultation to the performance on our Big Day, PianoFactor were fantastic. The songs were absolutely perfect for our wedding, our guests danced from start to finish and since the wedding lots of our guests have commented on how amazing PianoFactor was. They knew exactly the sort of music we wanted without us even asking for it and we truly had the best end to our amazing day. Thanks so much!!

duelling pianos wedding
We both love the concept of duelling pianos and when we found out about pianofactor we just had to book them for our wedding. They were absolutely brilliant and had the dance floor packed through all three sets. They were funny, entertaining and very professional. Carl is great and the female singer was amazing too. The drummer provided good solid energetic drumming all night long.
We're trying to think of an excuse to hire these guys again. We'll have to think up another event...!!
Cheers guys, you made our night.

amazing show
Bride: We decided that one of the priorities for our wedding was that we wanted a live band - we knew people would be up for dancing so something to get the party started was essential. PianoFactor didn't disappoint at all! An amazing show and not just background music, everyone was up on the dance-floor immediately and loving it! These incredibly talented musicians are highly entertaining and have an amazing vibe, wholeheartedly recommended. Thanks guys!

Groom: Boom! First dances done then the crowd went wild and didn't stop until Piano Factor did! Guys the vibe you gave at the event was awesome, everyone came prepared but you got them going and didn't let go. Recommend to anyone looking for a party!
