Thank you New York, NY Dueling Pianos for a Fabulous, Magical and Musical night of 5 Star fun! From the first song the crowd was encouraged too participate… singing along and making song requests. As the evening progressed people got up from their tables, dancing, laughing and gathering around the pianos, arm in arm, shouting out lyrics to songs that everyone knows and loves. The energy in the room was palpable.

Simply outstanding! I've seen many dueling piano acts over the years, and these guys are a step above the rest of the pack in every way. The ease and professionalism throughout the booking process and the quality of showmanship and entertainment are unparalleled. The level of audience interaction and engagement from start to finish was exactly what I had hoped for and more. In 19 years of bringing in entertainment to our conference this show had the highest attendee rating of any show in any past year. I'll stop gushing, but seriously, book this group.

“Wedding of the century” according to all of our guests. You guys absolutely killed it. Never before have I seen so many people on a dance floor for the entire reception. The biggest disappointment of our guests was that you guys had to stop playing when it was over. We had high expectations after seeing your clips and you went above and beyond. You made our reception perfect.

OVER THE TOP!!!!
That's how we felt about our party this weekend....We had the pleasure of having Eddie and Jonno perform at our Martini Party this past weekend...and what a GREAT party it turned out to be. They are extremely talented and put on a spectacular show for us. They even invited my son to join along on his drum set!!!!! Eddie was so easy to deal with. He made the booking process very easy and was extremely professional. I would highly recommend these performers for any party or fundraiser. My guests can't stop raving about the party....NY Dueling Pianos are AWESOME!!!!

"These guys are amazing!!! We booked them for a hospitality event for our customers during one of our trade shows and from the first phone conversation to the final performance I felt like I was taken care of above and beyond. The quality of the performance was outstanding...song variety, great sound, great vocals, and knew how to work the crowd. Definitely a great choice when you want to set your party above the rest. To make it even better we won an award during our trade show for being the most entertaining. Look forward to doing business in the future."

Will be in touch next week with more positive feedback and photos. I'm getting lots of great comments about the event and what a great time folks had with NYNY Dueling Pianos. Thank you!"

Chris and Jed were UNREAL!!! I have never hired entertainment that was so good!! Super professional and they knew how to work a crowd better than anyone I've seen. They were sincerely amazing and I don't know how else to put it into words other than your phrase of they are stupid good! That's all I heard all day was how much fun they were and that the people that left early were bummed.

I have to say, I knew you would be good but what you delivered was so far beyond expectation. So Thank You again!! We will be in touch for our next event!!

Prior to the pianist's arrival I was skeptical regarding what to expect. Steve and Matthew, arrived on time to the location, were super nice and professional, and setup their equipment in about twenty minutes. At first, the students took a song or two to warm up to them, but then they did a hip hop medley and it was ON! The kids got up and danced, and some even sang on an adjacent mic with them. Teenagers are a hard sell, and the pianist did amazingly at keeping them engaged. It was a pleasure working with Eddie, and the pianist Steve and Matthew. I highly recommend them for your event.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how wonderful it was to work with your two pianists, Steve and Matt last evening for my event. They made the event so memorable and brought such amazing energy to the evening. Everyone loved them.
It was a pleasure working with you and your company and especially a pleasure working with the two performers.
Thank you once again and I will definitely keep you in mind for future events.

"The best show we have ever had here." is word for word what I keep hearing. I am actually afraid of the the bar I set for my events this year. None of them are going to be as liked as you guys were. We will most certainly be having you back next year. Have any friends that do cool things? :-) Have a great weekend!
March 16, 2017, Clubhouse Director, Adult Community in NJ
As the event chair person for our annual school spring fundraising gala, this was the year we needed to make a big change. We hit a “home run” hiring New York NY Dueling Pianos! Guests weren’t quite sure what to expect and they were beyond pleasantly surprised! We were so entertained with their show. They are top notch professionals and did everything possible to accommodate our needs. Eddie and Steve were fantastic! Can’t say enough positive things about our experience from beginning to end!

Dan and Gray were absolutely incredible, the best, fun, perfect!!! Dan did a great job of MC'ing the wedding reception and they could play ANYTHING! We live in San Antonio, so had lots of bands from here and Austin to choose from, but found that (understandably) we were limited to play lists and maybe 3 requests that they'd learn for the wedding. The bride and friends love karaoke and wanted to be able to request so looked into dueling pianos. Best decision ever! They came with a drummer (sorry--forgot the name but he was great too) and all their own sound equipment. Father of the bride wanted the Ray Price version of San Antonio rose for the bride/dad dance and they handled it from there--Ray could have been in the room with us. Finally, and this is not an exaggeration--from the moment the dinner plates were cleared until the end of the reception, the dance floor was full!!! Friends of the B & G danced, parents danced, little kids danced. So many people said it was the most fun they'd ever had at a wedding. Eddie, our contact in NY was great, but when we booked a year ago, we couldn't find reviews or clips from Texas to check so took a leap of faith with Eddie. Right Decision! Thanks Eddie, Dan, and Gray for a wonderful evening!

Dozens at the wedding told us personally they were the best wedding entertainment any of them had ever seen!
We searched across 4 states (NY, NJ, PA, and DE) and several Boroughs over 9 months to find the best and most unique wedding music experience ever. After listening to dozens of bands, we were hooked on the sound of New York, NY Dueling Pianos. Eddie was great to work with, and he and Debbie and Micah truly rocked our wedding!
They got the entire party on the dance floor singing along to all the best hits, even during a power outage lit by battery up-lights. Even with the crazy circumstances, they rolled with it and kept the party going uninterrupted, even louder and more fun than if we had electricity- thanks to a grand piano in the lobby that got wheeled in provided by the venue.
Dozens at the wedding told us personally they were the best wedding entertainment any of them had ever seen! I would happily follow New York, NY Dueling Pianos to any public shows in the future will recommend them to anyone I meet, and couldn't be happier with their entire operation.

Eddie, Steve and Tom were fantastic! Our wedding guests absolutely loved the music - Eddie and team read the room incredibly accurately and their sound was on point! We received so many compliments and were surprised to see all the guests out on the dance floor! We wanted a unique experience for the music and definitely not a DJ - we were so lucky to find Eddie! He is extremely professional and responsive, everything was handled perfectly from start to finish. Amazing team and fantastic entertainers!

I cant thank you guys enough for last night. Your professionalism, musical talent, and humor were the perfect trifecta. Although our audience started off skeptical, by the end of the night you left them wanting more. No joke, we had wall-street guys staying up past their bed time in there. I listened to snoop dogg all the way home.

You, your partner Steve, your guitarist, and your drummer...I am speechless. You guys are no joke. Thanks for rocking out our event at the Filmore Philadelphia. I am thinking of bringing you all to California next year. You are an excuse in your own right to throw another event!

The dueling piano band was amazing. Working with Eddie was the least stressful vendor I dealt with through the wedding planning process. He was easy to communicate with, flexible with all of my special requests, and extremely personable with all of my guests. On the wedding day they rolled with all the punches. We were late, and the reception timeline was shortened but they still managed to make sure all of our items on the timeline fit in the evening. My family members are still raving over this band 2 months after the wedding and they all want cd's and to see them live. The vocalists have the purist voices I've ever heard. The female vocalist sings like an angel. I think she sang our First Dance song better than the original artist (Norah Jones)! They took requests from our guests all night and kept the dance floor hopping! These are true musicians! I've never seen a wedding band with this much talent and charisma! I'd highly recommend them! If your budget allows for this band, I'd say to splurge and ask for a few extra hours. Also, don't forget to get a videographer!!! This band you will want to see again after the honeymoon!

NY NY Dueling Pianos are excellent. They were professional throughout the entire planning process for my recent wedding; from inquiry to the event date. I was able to count on Eddie's prompt reply to all of my emails, too.
Eddie and Frank performed live music at my event. My cocktail hour and wedding reception were unmatched! Some of my guests told me they were the best "wedding band" they have ever heard. Great job guys - you rock!

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did at my wedding on October 18th. I am so happy your piano's fit! Mark and I have gotten rave reviews from all of our friends and family about how fun the wedding was thanks to you. Everybody loved all of the personal touches you guys did- especially the happy birthday song you did for Mark's cousin.
Mark and I talked about how great of a job you guys did with the Ring of Fire - we loved the trumpet! We also both thought you guys did amazing jobs learning Daughter and My Wish. Everything you did was perfect and helped create a perfect memory of our wedding. If you ever need a reference or a review was written, please do not hesitate to ask. It would be an honor. I hope to attend another one of your functions-- where I am not the bride-- so I can enjoy and listen to everything.

I can't thank you enough for making my son and daughter-in-law's wedding celebration such a success. I was so concerned that entertaining guests from ages 14 through 90 with a variety of ethnic backgrounds would be an impossible task - but you really nailed it! My goal was to have the guests leave with smiles on their faces and that was easily accomplished thanks to you. You were able to mix Frank Sinatra with Bon Jovi, horas with Irish jigs, and moon dances with tangoes- not an easy feat. You were responsive and responsible throughout the planning stages of the event. You were able to provide background music during the cocktail hour and fabulous entertainment following the meal. We couldn't have asked for anything more - even Michael Feinstein wouldn't have been as good or accommodating! I hope that we can celebrate more happy occasions with you. Fondly, Roberta

Eddie, the Dueling Pianos act on Saturday night went fabulously well! I was quite impressed with the duo and have heard nothing but good comments about their performance. Personally, I have not seen this group of members in particular up on their feet dancing that early in the night, nor that many at a time as what they were on Saturday. They did a fantastic job of getting the crowd involved and I could not be more pleased from start to finish.
One of the bartenders who has been with us for 13 YEARS, personally commented that she has NEVER seen a band perform so phenomenally well in the time she has been here. JOB WELL DONE!!!

We are hearing so many great things about A-SCARE-Ium. It was certainly the talk of the Aquarium and our surrounding communities; everyone raving about how AWESOME you guys were. I totally agree – what a great show. It was better than I imagined!!!! I truly can’t thank you enough for being so professional, totally into giving the guests a good show and being so GREAT at what you do. I really enjoyed working with you. I have been meaning to send you an email since that night but with the other events, the daily work of paperwork and meetings, etc I haven’t had a chance. Please forgive me, because I really have meant to follow up before now. My sincere appreciation!!

You guys really went above and beyond and really made our night unforgettable. All of our guests truly had a blast & we still get compliments on how unique having dueling pianos at our wedding was. Eddie, I appreciate the constant communication with me as our wedding day got closer. You really took a lot of time to think about all of the details and to accommodate us. You were very patient and reassuring to me which made me at ease during a stressful time! We are forever grateful!!

I am a corporate event planner and have used New York, NY Dueling Pianos for 4 separate events. These guys are very easy to work with, professional at all times and put on a quality show that is great fun for even a conservative corporate clientele. My clients are very choosy and expect the best. In all 4 instances, I received high praise for this show and expect future bookings to come. As a professional event planner, these guys made me look like a genius. Can't wait to book them again.
August 6th, 2011, Corporate Event in New York City, NY
These guys were great. I hired them to do an event I book every year for about 300 of our best performing reps. This year we did it at major hotel in midtown Manhattan and after our awards ceremony the dueling pianos took the stage and brought down the house. They were funny, and got everyone dancing and clapping. At one point they had our top 5 reps come up on stage and made them do some pretty silly stuff. I was astounded at how much music these guys knew off the top of their head. It seemed impossible to stump them with requests. They even knew the Georgia Tech fight song! How random is that? Everyone had fun and has not stopped talking about it. Good stuff!
