What is Duelling Pianos?

Piano music is loved by all. Wether it be at an Elton John concert, a rock and roll piano-bar or a hotel lobby. It is an instrument that everyone is drawn to no matter what their demographic. Our drummer went to see a Take That concert, Gary Barlow came out on stage on is own. He sat and the piano and said - 'the bands not here yet, do you fancy a sing song?', literally everyone was ready to sing a long (and they did!). The Piano is a beautiful instrument and it has this magical power to draw people in.

Take that magic and multiply it by two and you have Duelling Pianos. With two pianos on stage and two entertainers leading the band, the possibilities are endless. The entertainers will perform your requests that you have written down. You will get to hear all the songs that you love. But don't just think Piano! Duelling Piano Entertainers can play pretty much anything. From Ed Sheeran to Daft Punk and Bruno Mars to Bon Jovi. Lady Gaga to Beyonce, not forgetting Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. The Rolling stones, Paul Simon, and ABBA. The list goes on and on AND ON! Duelling pianos performers have huge repertoires and really can satisfy everyones choice in music.

How does it work?

The Duelling Pianos concept is based on audience requests. The idea is that everyone gets to hear the songs that they love. We provide request slips and pens. These can be put out on the tables for the guests to request songs. The guests are welcome to come and hand their requests to the entertainers on stage. We encourage the guests to do so as this is a good icebreaker between the audience and the band.

Usually there are many requests waiting for us on the pianos when we take to the stage. If this is not the case then we will open the show with some great floor filler songs to get everyone up dancing. We will then explain to the guests about the request slips and that they are welcome to bring them up to us. Before long we will have many requests slips in front of us and as we are performing. We will sort through the requests and put them into some sort of order. This way we can keep the flow of the event going and keep people singing and dancing. We encourage the audience to join in on well known songs. Getting the guests to sing out familiar parts in the songs that we perform.

Although the name Duelling Pianos suggests a Piano Battle, this is not really how it works. The entertainers will often try and out perform their partner using their piano skills. It is mainly involves the entertainers working together to create an exciting atmosphere for the guests. You may also find the entertainers swapping pianos or performing together (four handed) on one piano.


Over 100 years ago, competition among ragtime piano players spawned memorable 'duels'. Based in saloons that pitted one piano player against another to see who could play faster or better. Duelling piano rivalries became so popular that entire vaudeville shows began showcasing these entertainers. They added singing and joke-telling to their amazing repertoire.

We would like to thank these early duelling piano virtuosos. For providing the background necessary that has allowed us to do what we love best. To entertain our audiences with the energetic, fun and quality Musical Entertainment.
