What to Expect
You will get an all request singalong dueling piano show that usually evolves into a dance party. My partner and I will start off with recognizable tunes to "warm the crowd up". Then we will encourage your guests to clap their hands and sing along to the choruses and recognizable parts of the songs. Request forms will be on the tables and the pianos for the audience to request their favorites. We try to play as many as we know while still keeping the interactive aspect going. Eventually at most functions, the crowd wants to dance and we try to keep the pace up later in the night. And I`ve never seen a crowd yet that couldn`t dance to our piano show. Near the end of most of our shows, we do what I call the "big finish". We invite the crowd to surround the pianos, then we do all the biggest singalong hits and have everybody singing together in what many times becomes a special and almost emotional moment!
I also provide this same experience as a solo performer for those with smaller budgets, or smaller venues such as house parties. In fact, I have almost as many dates booked as a solo act than as a dueling act, especially wedding receptions.

I know you have many choices for entertainment and quite a few choices of Dueling Piano shows. There are plenty of good and not so good piano shows out there. What sets my shows apart from the many of the others is I`ve been a pro musician all my life and I only hire pros to work my shows with me. Not only will you get all the interactive fun that a Dueling Piano show provides, but you will get entertainers that sound good also. AND you will get entertainers with a large and varied repertoire. The song list that I have posted is maybe a third of the songs that we are capable of pulling off. Plus if you have any special requests for your event, with a few weeks notice, I will make sure that one of us learns them if we don`t already know them.
Dueling Pianos for wedding receptions have become extremely popular in the last few years. My summer wedding season gets booked up fast. If you`re thinking about Dueling Pianos for your wedding, my advice is to try to book your entertainment at least four months out (that goes for all companies not just mine). Although I do occasionally have openings sooner so don`t be afraid to try. The receptions I`ve done recently have been magical, memorable events for everyone involved (including me!). Picture the whole place dancing and singing their hearts out all night. We have a lot of experience with receptions and can give you advice on how to structure yours to make it as fun and successful as possible. So, if you`re thinking about Dueling Pianos for your wedding, Tony B`s Dueling Pianos would make the perfect choice.
Possibly the best reason for hiring Tony B`s Dueling Pianos is the personal touch. My assistant and I are always accessible to answer any of your questions or just if you need someone to talk to. During the process of planning the entertainment for your event, we will pretty much become friends. That`s just the way we are. I want you to feel that you know me by the time the music starts. There are companies with flashier websites, more expensive videos, snappier catch phrases etc.....but no one will give you a more personal experience or a better quality sound and show. So get in touch! Hope to see you at your next function.........Tony

There just aren’t words to convey to you how much we appreciate you and Daina. You are the ones who made the reception a REAL party……not us! Everyone of us is already scheming a way to do this again. I’m not kidding!
Thank you for being so enthusiastic from the start and so darn easy to work with. You made me feel so comfortable and so secure that I didn’t spend one minute worrying about your part of the wedding. I can’t thank you enough.
I wish I knew for certain that our paths will cross again some time, it would make this easier. But whether we see each other again or not, just know that I wish you all good things in the future. You are a great guy!
Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Oh, you need to know that Abram and Dani said they thought their wedding was “Perfect.” How is that for a testimonial??? And that is why we parents (as you well know) do what we do. They were so ‘over the moon’ happy with their special night. Thank you for your HUGE contribution. Please pass this on to Daina.
Tony, entertaining a crowd that goes from age 18 - 88+ is extremely difficult, but you and Megan pulled it off. I received numerous compliments from our college students and from my older guests. The guests from the '60s and '70s loved it, too. Thanks for making our Friday night a Super Homecoming event
Your choice of Tony and Megan was the Coup de' Grace, or Corpus Delecti, as it were. What a wonderful pair, and their choice of tunes was right on. Whatever they cost was well worth it...and I'm sure that you sensed that the audience felt the same...
