What is Duelling Pianos

Duelling Pianos originated in the United States in bars such as Pat O’Brien’s bar New Orleans, with the modern form or Duelling Pianos gaining popularity in notable bars like Dallas Alley, Howl at the moon (Florida and Miami) and New York New York (Las Vegas). This modern incarnation soon became popular in Europe with famous clubs like Crazy Pianos (Netherlands) springing up all over the continent. PianoJam XL is Duelling Pianos for the U.K. crowd and is a reasonably unique here with only two or three companies providing this service. It remains an awesome way to entertain at weddings, festivals, parties and corporate functions bringing fun, dancing, singing and audience to participation to your event.
