Hire New York, NY Dueling Pianos for your event and you get a high-octane fiesta that’s part rock show, part comedy show and all sorts of craziness rolled into one big outrageous party. The audience becomes part of the show in a request-driven sing-along, dance-along, thump-the-tables-along extravaganza!! If you are looking for the unique alternative to a wedding band or unique party entertainment for your corporate function or private event, we are the dueling piano show for you!

New York, NY Dueling Pianos started in NYC in 2012. Within a couple years we were getting invited over the U.S. At first we would fly our New York performers in and rent equipment locally. As we grew, we invested in full traveling shows, complete with pianos, sound and lighting, based in major cities in Texas, California, the Midwest and Florida. We carefully added to our performer roster, until we developed the very best dueling piano talent anywhere. Even as our corporate offices remain in NYC, we are proud to play for audiences all throughout North America.

  • How do you move the Grand Pianos?

    Part of the magic of our show is the iconic imagery of 2 grand pianos face to face.  Because our show must be completely mobile, we knew we had to figure out how to make the grand pianos extremely portable so they would fit into every elevator and make it through every turn. In 2010 we commissioned a master cabinet maker to solve this problem. He built us two stunning pianos that break down into smaller parts that can then be assembled directly on site.  This solves the problem of tiny elevators and tight corners.

  • Are stairs a problem?

    They’re not a problem, however if there are a lot, we may wish to bring an additional set of hands to help us load in which can affect your price, but only minimally.

  • Are you insured?

    Absolutely! If your venue requires it, we can provide them with a certificate naming them as additional insured.

  • How much time do you need to setup?

    It primarily depends on the difficulty of the load in route, and secondarily on how complex our set up is. (Pianos vs. keyboards, drums or no drums, additional keyboard setups for cocktail hours that are in other rooms, etc.) Normally we like to arrive 2-3 hours before the guests arrive. We are able to coordinate our arrival time directly with the venue.

  • How do you determine your prices?

    We take into account the travel time and expenses, and the amount of time we are onsite. Since we setup before the guests arrive, your price will be dependent more upon the duration of your event rather than the length of our actual performance.

  • Do you require a staging platform?

    For groups of over 50-75, it’s generally advisable, but we’ve done shows for larger groups with no platform. Most medium to large venues either have platforms available, or can provide you with a preferred vendor who can bring it in. Preferred stage height is dependent upon the size group, but generally between 12” – 24”.
