Adding dueling pianos entertainment to your wedding events is a way to take your special day to the next level. Therefore we asked The Copper Piano Dueling Pianos to share their expert advice on the topic.
What is dueling pianos?
Thanks to Howl At the Moon Orlando, many people know exactly what Dueling Pianos is. Yet many couples still do not realize that dueling pianos is a fantastic, entertaining and musical way of bringing your family and friends together at any event. Whether it’s your engagement party, wedding reception, bridal shower, or bachelorette party, dueling pianos is ENGAGING entertainment.
With dueling pianos, there’s literally 2 piano players who play all your favorites. And take special requests! Now, when we say “they take requests”, we mean, ALL REQUESTS. That’s part of the allure of this entertainment. Your pianists can play literally anything your guests want to hear. For this reason, they are equipped with all the classic sing alongs everyone loves. Starting with the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s. Along with all of today’s hits. For instance, Michael Bubble’s I’m Feeling Good and Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl. Likewise, Britney Spears’ Hit Me Baby 1 More Time. Indeed, we can go on and on!
Here’s How We ROLL at your wedding events
What’s fantastic about dueling pianos, is that we can step in before the DJ and the dance floor gets chaotic. In fact, many times, couples have us play during the cocktail hour to warm up the crowd. Similarly, we love stepping in once the reception is winding down, while your late night snacks are being served. If you’ve envisioned that last song of the night. Surrounded by your wedding party, friends and family. All embracing in one circle on the dance floor. Assuredly, that final song can be performed live, with everyone belting out that song favorite!
Another idea we love, is if you have a DJ performing inside your reception, you can have dueling pianos outside where a different crowd is enjoying cocktails, cigars and a beautifully lit fire pit. Undoubtedly we can create a lounge vibe for your guests. Correspondingly getting them warmed up for the epic dance party down the line. Or offer a different vibe entirely in a breakout area. Certainly the options are endless. Further we can work with you, your wedding planner and/or your venue, to produce the perfect dueling piano entertainment.
We love weddings. And we love playing at ALL the other events that lead up to and/or cap off the actual wedding. For instance, we played a Mama Mia themed wedding/bridal shower in Coral Gables. Including all the songs from Mama Mia. Moreover, the songs matched the décor and theme of the bridal shower. Additionally it allowed the bride and her guests to participate by singing along to all the songs they love!
Are you gathering all your out of town wedding guests for one more meal the day after you wedding? Because one other option is to have dueling piano entertainment for the after wedding brunch. As a result, you can have one more lasting memory. Coupled with dueling pianos playing the classics over mimosas, hugs and well wishes.
Dueling Pianos is a musical journey that captivates your guests and pulls them in. Above all it is always a TREAT for everyone.
