Dueling Piano Kings
Dueling Piano Kings is a highly interactive all-request piano show “where your requests rule”. The duo were crowned “Entertainers of the Year” for the entire country at the Canadian Event Industry Awards in March 2019 and they were the first winners ever of the 2017 Calgary Event Award for “Best Entertainer”!
Dueling Piano Kings have been innovators in entertainment bringing their show to many audiences, including arena and stadium venues. They have performed at the Scotiabank Saddledome for several Calgary Flames games, Calgary Roughnecks games, and twice at McMahon Stadium for a Calgary Stampeders game in front of over 25,000 people! Each of these performances allowed fans to engage with the duelers and send in their song requests through Twitter to be played during the game intermissions, along with “shout outs” to the fan that requested it including their name and seat location. Unprecedented for any entertainment that fans can have a say in the outcome of what happens on stage!
The dueling piano duo has headlined the Calgary Stampede twice at The Big Four Roadhouse, performed for the first time ever at the Calgary Stampede Vintage Tractor Pull, as well as Western Canada’s largest country music festival “Big Valley Jamboree”, and at the 2019 Grey Cup Festival in Calgary at Stamps House.
These two piano players have decades of piano-playing experience, and can play any song you want to hear, from classic rock, retro, to the latest Top 40 music! No performances are ever the same!
