Dueling Keys (DK) are two talented pianists who take turns squaring off for an evening of rockin’ musical fun and high-brow, low-brow comedy, where the audience actually becomes the show and the musicians are there merely to facilitate a memorable night; setting us apart from any other entertainment option you may consider for your next event.
Dueling Keys is as musical as any band and actually more interactive than karaoke can ever claim to be. Dueling Keys blends theater production, with a dash of stand-up comedy and loads of sing-a-long, clap-a-long fun.
Dan and his partner Jon performed at our wedding reception in July. Everyone had a blast trying to stump them song after song to no avail - they knew them all.
Response from Dueling Keys:
Thanks Karrie - it was an honor to part of your celebration! By the way, two of your friends contacted me to play at their weddings in 2013!
What to Expect
Our goal is to make the audience as much a part of the show as the players.
Owner & key player, Dan Satterberg is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota and has been a musician all of his life. He attended Berklee College of Music for a while and later completed a double major in theater and studio art from St. Cloud State. Being both classically-educated and taught by ear, Dan developed a soulful Elton-John-meets-Herbie-Hancock piano style accompanied as a clear singing voice. He's "paid his dues" in a fair share of bands including the Prince formed and Warner Bros. signed band "Mazarati". Dan has performed at clubs such as Little Ditties, City Streets, That Bar, Swinging Door, Heart & Soul, Cedar Rapids Piano Lounge and others as well as corporate events, colleges, weddings and casinos nationwide.
All our DK entertainers have performed in bands and are fully aware that bands are for listening and often times act as a backdrop. Karaoke is interactive, however, not everybody is comfortable enough to attempt Bon Jovi’s ‘Living on a Prayer’ or Lady GaGa’s ‘Paparazzi’ in front of anyone without inordinate and consequential amounts of tequila. This is where Dueling Keys stands on its own because DK is as musical as any band and actually more interactive than karaoke can ever claim to be. Dueling Keys blends theater production, with a dash of stand-up comedy and loads of sing-a-long, clap-a-long fun.
