Watch VideoFun Pianos! by 176 Keys, Dueling Pianos Show

Maybe Carols will be requested in Topeka KS, Kearney NE, Madison WI and Orlando FL at this week’s shows…

We don’t often get requests for our dueling pianos to play Carols anytime other than Christmas.

According to WhyChristmas.com, ”Carols were first sung in Europe thousands of years ago, but these were not Christmas Carols. They were pagan songs, sung at the Winter Solstice celebrations as people danced round stone circles (The word carol originally meant to dance to something). The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year, usually taking place around the 22nd December. The word Carol actually means dance or a song of praise and joy! Carols used to be written and sung during all four seasons, but only the tradition of singing them at Christmas has really survived.”

Actually, after that explanation… I stand corrected. We get asked to play ALL kinds of Carols, we just call them anthems or oldies or ballads. There are always those songs that take us back to another time in our lives. We can remember the first time we heard the song. The first time we danced to it, and the first time we laughed / cried during it. They make us want to dance and be happy. I know I have a few. Whatever your favorite Carol is… whether it is Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” or Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” we hope to hear requests from everyone at our shows. We are here to put MORE FUN in your day!
