Duelling piano-style rock & roll crowd classics
feat. Elton John, Billy Joel, Jerry Lee Lewis & More!
Duelling Pianos are two of Canada’s finest entertainers, Tom Arntzen and Diane Lines
Putting their own unique spin on audience favourites, these two take the Duelling Piano concept to a whole new level. They love the simple, classic sound of two pianos going at it and dish out plenty of it to fans of piano greats such as Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Joel and Elton John!
All of this combined with great singing, a massive request repertoire (just try to stump them) and a heavy dose of audience interaction plus two fearless performers willing to try just about ANYTHING in the name of fun, make them a great booking for any event.
