If you’ve ever been in charge of booking the entertainment for a big upcoming event, you know what a nerve-wracking experience it can be. Sifting through websites and testimonials trying to find some sort of an act that will appeal to everyone – while still being fun and enjoyable (and also non-offensive!) – can seem like digging for a needle in a haystack. It can be a lot of pressure, made worse by the fact that in the back of your head, you’re worried that if you pick a dud of an act, the entire evening could be a flop.
This might be a touch melodramatic – but, it certainly is true that the entertainment sets the tone for the course of the evening, so you want to be sure to get it right. That said, you can rest easy. We’ve got the solution you’ve been searching for.
Your Event Entertainment Conundrum, Solved
The next time you need to book entertainment for a wedding, corporate gig, or family get-together, forget about bands, DJs, or comedians. These sorts of acts run the gamut from being boring, predictable, difficult to work with, impersonal, and potentially unsuitable for a family-friendly, PG-rated evening.
Take a new approach to your entertainment for the evening, and book dueling pianos to entertain at your next big event. Not only are piano players more handsome than DJs, comedians, and their ilk (we’re pretty sure there are scientific studies to back this up!), but dueling pianists are able to bring a level of personalized fun and excitement that just can’t be matched by the more-traditional forms of event entertainment.
Dueling Pianists: A Cut Above
Make your next event one to remember starting with booking live entertainment that really sizzles. When you bring in dueling pianos, you’re getting so much more than your typical-fare event entertainment; you’re getting an act that’s:
Set lists are the bread and butter of DJs and bands. You might find some acts out there who will entertain an audience request or two, but usually, these requests only actually happen if they fit with the band’s established repertoire. Dueling piano musicians typically play without any set list at all, relying on audience requests to set the tone for the event.
When you book a comedian for your big event, chances are, you’re getting the exact same set he performed last night, and the night before, and the night before that. Since an act like Calgary Dueling Pianos relies on audience requests to plot the course of an event, you’ll be getting a personalized, bespoke entertainment experience, each and every time we play!
Most event entertainers are one-trick ponies. DJs spin records, comedians tell jokes, and bands play songs. With Calgary Dueling Pianos, though, you’re getting a well-rounded entertainment experience, focused on great music, engagement and interaction with the crowd, and fun bits of family- and business-friendly humour sprinkled throughout.
- Cost effective
When you book a band, you’re paying for anywhere from 3-6+ individuals to come and entertain – plus, you’ll be expected to cover the cost of any food, drinks, or other requirements they might have! With Calgary Dueling Pianos, you pay for the two of musicians, and that’s it. You also won’t need to worry about renting out any lights, sound, or stage setups – we bring it all with us, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.
These points really only just scratch the surface when it comes to why you should consider booking dueling pianists to set the stage and entertain at your next event. Our brand of approachable, “kitchen-party” style of entertainment really is second-to-none, and does a brilliant job of encouraging people to get out on the floor, dance, chat, have fun, and engage with one another, making for a memorable evening people will remember for years to come.
