Why Just One When You Could Have Two?

Dueling pianos is a fun form of entertainment for the whole family. It involves two pianos on stage, usually grand pianos, and often includes songs, a sing-a-long and humor. There would often be anywhere between two and four piano players on stage for a performance. Audience participation is often encouraged.

This form of entertainment seems to have has a comeback in Dallas, Texas at a then famous piano bar, Alley Cats in the 1980s. But there are occurrences of dueling pianos as early as the 1890s. The most famous act of this nature was at Pat O’Brien’s bar in New Orleans during the 1930s.
