A Finer Show You'll Never Find

I was looking for a fundraiser to run for the New Jersey State Elks Army of Hope, and having been to dueling piano shows in Texas and Florida thought it would be a great idea to try one here. I contacted several people regarding pricing and availablity, before deciding on New York, NY Dueling Pianos, and I could not have been happier with the outcome. Eddie and Paul put on a show that had the entire audience laughing and singing along. Their knowledge of songs requested ranged from country to hip hop to rock and pop, and they knew how to keep EVERYONE involved. Best of all, as we were doing it for a fundraiser to help our troops and their families they donated back 100% of their tips. That was over 500 dollars they gave back to us. I personally can not wait to book them again, and I know several other people in attendance were raving its the most fun they have had at our Elks Club in years, and wanted to book them for High School Fundraisers.

We have booked national acts, comedy shows, wrestling events, but I've never been to one event where every person in attendance made a point to come up to me and tell me how much fun they had.

If you're going to book a dueling piano show, you would be out of your look to go ANYWHERE else.

Better than a wedding band.

I hired NYNY for my wedding in Baltimore. They started out as background music during cocktails, and then introduced the bridal party. They played light music while we ate, and then were joined by their drummer as they did an all-request dance set. Everyone was dancing and having fun. They brought up the best man and roasted him on stage, and did some funny things with my bridal party as well. I can't say enough about these entertainers. They made my wedding day memorable and fun!! I would hire them again, for sure.

Review by Margaret M.

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 guys!

More fun than sex

Our committee hired them for our annual block party. We had the best block party we've ever had with dueling pianos. The two entertainers, played our endless requests, and had everyone dancing and partying until the police finally shut everything down after midnight. We will be hiring them next year, and will invite the police this time!

Highly professional

I would highly recommend Eddie Lawrence and his Dueling pianos show. I booked him recently for a corporate event in Washington DC and found him to be extremely easy to work with and highly professional. He skillfully paid close attention to every detail and kept me informed on how things were going every step of the way. My client was very pleased with Eddie as well. I will definitely use him again.

Top shelf corporate entertainment.

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.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 55 - 240 minutes
  • Fee: $2,000 and up
  • Languages: English

Overview

Extreme fun! The show is request driven, so each show is a different experience. Sing-along to Sweet Caroline, do the special Croc-clap with Crocodile Rock, shake your bootie to Sir Mixalot or sway arm-in-arm with Piano Man. Expect someone to be brought up on stage for an embarrassing roasting in front of God and country! We can do an adults only show, or keep it squeaky clean for the kids. College crowd? No problem, we rock out with current music too. Request slips will be passed out and your guests can walk up and hand them directly to the performers.

Additional Booking Notes

We will work with you to provide the production that is right for your event. We have access to production companies to help out with the sound, lighting and staging as you require.

We work with actual matching ebony digital GRAND PIANOS. This creates a powerful visual for the show and we are the only NY based dueling company that provides this. If your budget doesn't allow for the baby grand shells we can bring just keyboards.

We prefer to provide all of the sound production and have a high-end powerful system that fills most rooms.

If you want to do your own sound production, we will need the following:

- a P.A. system (Speakers and Amps), appropriate for the size of the venue
- at least a 12 channel mixing board with at least 2 separate Aux Out's, so each player has a separate monitor mix
- Each performer needs at least 1 floor monitor cabinet (12 or 15" plus horn)
- 2 boom mic stands
- 2 vocal mics (Beta 58A or better)
- Microphone cabling
- Speaker cabling
- tech person on hand
- we will provide 1/4" instrument cables to plug into your board.

If you are providing the entire setup, in addition to the above:
- 2 stage pianos: 88-weighted keys, Yamaha CP-33 or equivalent
- instrument cables for both pianos
- 2 X stands for the stage pianos
- 2 piano benches with adjustable height
- 2 sustain pedals
