Dueling pianos is an interactive, sing-a-long group entertainment event that encourages audience participation as the focus of the crazy, off-the-cuff experience. The battle is waged between two singer/piano performers using the crowd as ammunition. Competitions between guys and girls, rock vs. country and dance-offs are just some of the ways the audience helps create the show, making it unique to you and your group!
Collectively, Mike McCaslin and his fellow dueling piano players have decades of experience performing for bar audiences, and traveling the country doing corporate shows and fundraisers. We have a magic touch on wedding receptions. They are our specialty. Combine a dueling piano show with years of wedding reception DJ experience and it's also a dance party where your guests are guaranteed to hit the dance floor.

History of dueling pianos
Dueling pianos' origins go back decades to ole' New Orleans. In 1933, Pat O'Brien's opened in New Orleans, and featured two grand pianos and two players who would take turns singing songs requested by the audience. In the 1980s, modern dueling piano clubs began opening across the United States, and soon the rest of the world.
