Nightclub Venue | Fun Pianos dueling pianos show

Griswold, IA - Friday, March 5th, 2021

Fun Pianos were the entertainers of the year!  Being in a small town, we weren't sure how our first-ever dueling piano show would go, and it was very important we choose the RIGHT team to bring in.  Fun Pianos interacted with the crowd from the moment they took the stage till the moment they walked out the door!  Amazing entertainment, incredible, unmatched audience interaction, and super impressive musicians.  We are so glad we choose Fun Pianos and will be booking them again very soon!

Burlington, IA - Friday, December 8th, 2017
I could not be happier with our Dueling Piano show! We worked with Fun Pianos to host a new fundraiser in Burlington Iowa to raise support for local Scouting and Career Explorers. Fun Pianos was great to work with in the planning process. Their online program planning system, tips and tricks sheet, and office staff (Amy) were all great resources to help put this event together. Katy and Tommy were the two performers who came out. They arrived early, kept the crowd entertained with a wide variety of classic rock to new pop songs, and engaged the crowd with dancing and some games too!

Company Event

Davenport, IA - Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
"Our company, The Advisory Group, celebrated its 25th Anniversary on September 22, 2016 with a dinner Gala and spectacular entertainment provide by Fun Pianos. The event was a huge success, in great part because of Sam & Gary’s ability to reach out to everyone in the room and get them engaged and having fun! Within moments of the start, even the most conservative client in the audience was “chair dancing” and singing along! There were several highlights throughout Fun Pianos’ hour and a half set, to include the touching military tribute, a kick-line of married couples, Gary’s singing for a couple’s special celebration dance, and my personal favorite was having one sweet, older lady join Sam on stage while he played the piano. Sam used great charm in provide her with cues, and to encourage her along. It was adorable! Fun Pianos provided great entertainment for our business celebration, and, speaking for our entire audience of over 250, we had a ball! I would highly recommend Sam Ferguson and Fun Piano’s for your next event!"

Wedding

Sioux City, IA - Saturday, August 29th, 2015
I thought the show was AMAZING!! It went much better than I had anticipated and was more than I had hoped for! My dad had been telling me he was not going to stay through the reception and he was dancing until midnight!! The guys were able to keep my grandmother as well as all of my young nieces and nephews involved throughout the piano show. I was told by many of my guests that this was one of the most fun receptions they had ever been to and the guests from the reception in the room next to ours kept stopping by my reception because the “music was better" and their DJ was “boring"! Thank You, Thank you, Thank you!! My husband, myself, our families and our guests had an absolutely amazing night!
 

Wedding

Tama, IA - Saturday, August 8th, 2015
Fun Pianos was the perfect choice for my wedding reception. We had well over 350 guests and the players got everyone from 2 to 90 years old involved!

Company Party

Des Moines , IA - Saturday, January 24th, 2015
Your team has been very easy to work with. On the morning of the event I got a VM saying they were in Cedar Rapids and on their way. By the time I got to the hotel that afternoon at 3:00, they were already completely set up ! The show was great! Everyone loved them and had a good time, people talked about it for days after. I was shocked that they didn’t take any breaks, they did an amazing job straight thru. They followed the owners request for no attention and it was much appreciated. One owner even said let’s put them in our 3 year rotation schedule for entertainment! Your team does an amazing job! Can’t wait until next time!

The show was absolutely amazing!! My now husband and I had a blast and I think our guests did too.. We've heard many compliments! I don't think hardly any of our guests had seen a dueling pianos show before so they didn't know what was going on at first..but then really got into it! I so wish I would've got it on videotape. :( My dad n bro were even dancing and I've never seen that before. Overall..AWESOME and I wish we could do it again!

Wedding

Davenport, IA - Saturday, October 12th, 2013
I just wanted to drop you a quick note of appreciation for the wonderful show you did for us last week. The guys were great in all respects and I know that our guests had a great time all evening. My new son-in-law shared with me that very rarely at wedding receptions, does the Dance Floor stay packed and active all night. All age groups had a “Hoot” of a time! And most importantly to me, my Daughter and new Husband enjoyed every minute.

Volunteer Appreciation Event

Iowa City, IA - Wednesday, September 25th, 2013
I want to thank you both so much for helping facilitate our Volunteer Appreciation Event last night. It was FABULOUS! It was everything I wished for and more. The players were great. They got the crowd into it and, honestly, I couldn’t believe how many people they got up there to squiggle and wiggle and pound on the table and sing and shout. It was very high energy and, absolutely great. You both, as well as the players, were very easy to work with, very professional and helpful. They were here when they said they would be and got right to work setting up, etc. It all went very smoothly – why did I worry??? So, thank you, thank you again. I really enjoyed working with everyone. I have nothing but the highest praise for the way you run your company!!

Family Fun Night

Rock Valley, IA - Saturday, August 10th, 2013
176 Keys Fun Pianos is by far the best dueling pianos show you can book for your event. From the day of booking to the date of the show, the staff worked with me to make sure we had the best show possible. They kept the audience from young to young at heart not only entertained, but part of the show. The performance was exactly as expected and more. We will without a doubt be booking 176 Keys Fun Pianos for our future events!

Thank you, again, for helping to make our company meeting a tremendous success.

Just wanted to let you know that the guys did a fabulous job for us. We had a sell out crowd and had nothing but compliments on the show. Not only was it a great 2 hour show but they were so accommodating and responsive to anything we requested. They did a great job of reading the crowd and directing their performance right in to it. Not to mention the horrible snow storm, wind and cold they endured to keep their show date.

“… Thought I would let you know how fabulous you guys were at our wedding!! Everyone had an absolute blast and several have said our reception was more fun than most they have been to. Words can’t explain how much fun Brian and I had at our reception. We will always have wonderful memories. Plus, not only were you completely entertaining, but you also took control of the order of events when we showed up late to the reception when our limo had a flat tire. That made it so that once we arrived, Brian and I could kick back and enjoy ourselves because you had it under control!!…” Jenny and Brian Wise Bride and groom jwise@desmoine.gannett.com
