Midwest Dueling Pianos has quickly become one of the most sought after Dueling Piano production companies in the country. You have probably seen the widely popular Dueling Pianos concept performed while on vacation or a night out in the city. Now you can bring that level of excitement, hilarity, musicianship and raw fun to your students with a show that is specifically tailored for the college and university environment. Our interactive musical comedy experience will have your students singing, shouting, dancing and laughing. Our young, energetic and exciting entertainers perform on all request driven show with music ranging from the songs of today, to as far back as any of the students’ memories can take them.

How It Works:

Your students provide the direction of the show to our performers by writing their favorite songs on request slips that they bring up to the pianos. The multi-talented players then perform these songs, while urging the audience to participate. The fact that many of their favorite Rock, R&B and Rap songs can actually be performed on the piano will leave students wide-eyed and amazed. To further the crowd interaction, we may also bring some of the audience up onto the stage to perform a song, dance, and /or skit for their fellow classmates that will bring the house down.

Everything you need for your dueling piano show is provided:

Two Pianos
Stage Lighting
Complete Sound System
Dance Floor Lighting

Our production can accommodate any size event from a concert style engagement, a large campus theatre, to an intimate get-together in the basement of the Student Union.

Along with student-oriented shows, we can also perform at events geared towards university staff and alumni. Whatever your need, Midwest Dueling Pianos can provide an interactive musical experience that your guests will rave about for years.


“They were a hit! We can’t wait to have them back!” – Laura Whitmire, Miami University

“I just wanted to take a moment and express my thanks to you all at Bass-Schuler for always supplying such amazing acts for us here at Bluffton University. Last Friday, Dave and Dan from Midwest Dueling Pianos performed and they brought the house down! From the first moment they stepped onto campus they became involved and interested in our life here at Bluffton. The show was spectacular and surpassed all of our expectations for the evening; both Dave and Dan were so invested in their performance that they took almost an hour afterwards to talk with students and take pictures. They were not only amazing performers, but also remarkable people who cared about the relations such performances can create on a University campus.”- Neil Macke, Bluffton University

“I just wanted to let you know that the Dueling Pianos were AWESOME last Saturday.  The two that came were SOOOOOO great.  We loved having a guy and a girl and they were very very talented. They sang all popular songs and they were so great.  We would LOVE to have them back again!” - Jennifer Schreer, Albion College

“Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed having the Dueling Pianos last night. It was a great addition to our banquet and was very lively and interactive, so thank you! We hope to bring them again sometime in the future.” – Emily Teitelbaum, University of West Georgia

“Just wanted to send you a huge kudos – Dueling Pianos (Vince and Frank) were FANTASTIC last night here at OSU/COTC Newark. We had about 50 students total, of which 30 were there from start to finish, and they were so engaged in the performance—it was fantastic. Melissa Jensen, The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College

“They were great to work with, and put on a solid 2 hour show. They really had a variety of songs, which the students loved, and I appreciated Brian being proactive and checking for “permission” on questionable songs.”

“The Dueling Pianos program was one of the most unique and dynamic events we had on campus all year. From classic rock to 80’s hits to modern hip hop, Midwest Dueling Pianos pumped out request after request for our students. The program was great for both the passive observers and the karaoke stars. Our students really enjoyed when their peers were brought up on stage and turned into the stars of the show. Brian and his staff were easy to work with and were very professional. This is definitely a program we would bring back to FIU!”Josh Brandfon, SPC Advisor, Florida International University

“Our students really enjoyed the show last night. It was a perfect balance of classic sing-along’s and new hits. Your show was a great addition to our coffeehouse series; professional yet still engaging and entertaining for students. We look forward to having you back in Texas in the future!” - Michael Butler, Tarleton State University
