With a combined THREE DECADES of dueling piano experience, we are a high-energy dueling piano team based out of Cleveland, Ohio. We have been performing at private parties, weddings, corporate events, fairs, festivals, and at bars and restaurants as an *exclusive* (i.e. player-specific, "single operator") dueling piano TEAM since 1999. When you hire us as players, YOU GET US. (We NEVER sub-contract work to other players.) We are customer-focused CAREER DUELING PIANISTS, and we will work with you to make your event PERFECT. Additionally, as specialists in dueling pianos, when you book us directly, we promise that we will offer you a SUPERIOR product, and we will probably even save you money.
We added "T" and Rich to our fundraising auction event this year as the after party and our guests had a great time! "T" and Rich made the planning process a breeze and helped to emcee our event. We had lots of compliments from our guests!
We hired T & Rich for our wedding reception and it was one of the best decisions we've made. Our guests could not stop raving about how much fun it was to have dueling pianos. T & Rich played non-stop and really went above and beyond to ensure we had a memorable experience. They actually learned a song that was written by the Father of the Bride and played it for the Father-Daughter dance. Needless to say, T & Rich are top-notch entertainers and I would recommend them to anyone!
"T" & Rich Dueling Piano Act is top notch! All our guests raved about how much fun they had and loved "T" & Rich's non-stop entertainment. They did a masterful job with all the little details--T and Rich even learned a song that was written by the Father of the Bride and played it during the Father-Daughter dance. Needless to say, they made our wedding very special and we highly recommend the T and Rich's Dueling Piano Show to anyone; they are awesome!!

We used "T" and Rich for a client show as part of several entertainment experiences in a very large venue. This was our first experience with them, and it definitiely won't be the last. They were professional from booking time through showtime! Great communication and eager to please. More to the point, they know how to get their audience rockin'. The audience loved it, and we look forward to including them in more of our future events!! There's many dueling piano acts out there, but folks, you can't go wrong with these guys!!
They started on time and completely had our whole group dancing and singing. They were very good!!!
We had T and Rich for our work Christmas party. It was a huge success. Everyone loved the comical songs, the impressions and the great atmosphere that the piano show brought to our occasion. We will certainly plan to do this again. Thank you!
The show put on by T and Rich was absolutely fantastic and was enjoyed by all. They were fun and entertaining and I would recommend them to anyone.

We have one of the largest repertoires in the dueling piano business, and we pride ourselves on continually adding new songs!!! This show features the greatest popular songs from the 50's through today in a variety of musical genres. Along with all of the traditional classic sing-a-long songs such as "Brown Eyed Girl", "Margaritaville", "American Pie", "Piano Man", "Crocodile Rock" and "Old Time Rock and Roll", we also have an extensive repertoire of country, R&B, modern rock, polka, disco, classic rock, dance, alternative, hard rock, and even rap music. There is literally something in our bag of tricks for even the pickiest audience member, male or female, 8 through 80... ...And the audience always "steers" the direction of our show through their song requests and interaction.
We are not your typical party band!!! To say that "We play the pianos and sing songs" would simply be an understatement. Non-stop audience participation and interaction is the cornerstone of our dueling piano show! We encourage the audience to sing-a-long, clap-a-long, drink-a-long, and submit requests of their favorite songs and artists. Our dueling piano show itself consists mostly of high-energy party songs delivered with a comic twist. But there's even more - our show also includes a seemingly endless slew of comedy routines and novelty numbers. We even bring audience members (alone or in groups) to the stage for dancing or for some good-natured ribbing and roasts.
Unlike a typical band, we NEVER use a set list, and no two shows are ever the same - the show is created literally on-the-fly - using a combination of audience requests and our personal arsenal of songs - songs that will have everybody singing and partying!!! Our rapport with our audiences insures that our show is always custom-tailored to the crowd's musical tastes.
