"Excellent show!" - Tammy S Omaha, NE
What are Dueling Pianos?
One word. FUN! The Dueling Pianos concept is all about fun! Put two beautiful grand pianos on stage, add two impossibly talented and outgoing entertainers who play and sing with gusto, add a ton of rockin’ tunes – everything from The Beatles to Nickelback from Bon Jovi to Carrie Underwood, from from Jerry Lee Lewis to Journey, from Adelle to ZZ Top. Throw in a heaping helping of audience participation and you have a recipe for an unforgettable event. But don’t be misled by the title. Dueling pianists don’t really “duel” each other - It is not piano pistols from 40 paces at dawn! Rather it is two voices and four hands that bring a wide variety of music to life. And guess who decides the play list? That’s right. YOU DO! The show is request driven which means each show is unique and tailored to your guests' musical tastes.

Why Ted Oliver Productions Dueling Pianos?
That is an easy question to answer. Ted Oliver Dueling Pianos is the best dueling pianos experience available for your special event. Bar none. An evening with TODP is an unforgettable experience and one that your guests will remember for years to come. Through countless shows, we have developed a format for special event Dueling Pianos that is a different show than the show we perform in Dueling Piano bars. We love the Dueling Piano bars and they are wildly fun with their blue humor and the musical roasting of special guests but this material is not usually appropriate outside of the piano bars. We have developed a format for Dueling Pianos for special events that is every bit as fun as the piano bars but without the risque humor and blue content. This format has been perfected by us and is now the best interactive show your hard earned money can buy, and all of our entertainers are trained in this special event Dueling Pianos concept. Like The Black Eyed Peas say so well: “I Gotta Feeling - that tonight’s gonna be a good night...” With Ted Oliver Dueling Pianos performing for your special event your night will indeed be a very good night.
