Looking for something fun to do Memorial Day weekend? Try Dueling Pianos in Phoenix. Dueling Pianos is all over Arizona and we have the scoop on all the places in town you can check out Dueling Pianos Phoenix
On the East side ?
If you ever spent time on Tempes Mill Avenue in the last decade, you couldnt have missed the Big Bang, a staple in Phoenix for dueling pianos. The Big Bang officially closed last year (the company still maintains clubs in Nashville and Columbus) and has transformed under new ownership into Low Key Dueling Piano bar.?Fans will recognize the familiar faces onstage there, Mikey Clement, Mike Clavijo and Julie Simpson as well as Jeremy Bell.
Even though Low Key is in the same spot as the former Big Bang, it definitely has a new look. TV screens are placed above the stage with views from cameras mounted on the piano players, giving audience members a unique perspective of the stage. The staff at Low Key has been working together for many years, making them a very tight musical unit, and since they’re in Tempe, they always keep up on the new music.
Low Key is open with live entertainment Wednesday through Saturday nights.
In Mesa, you can catch a dueling piano show with much less hassle than Mill Ave or Westgate, at the Harp Pub in Mesas Dana Park. Every Friday night features a different team from AZ Dueling Pianos, a group of dueling piano players that have worked across the country and in all the Phoenix clubs. Wes Ringel, Jeremy Bell, James Brown, Steve Kostakes, Randy Keith, Amy Lyn, and Daniel Krass round out the selection of teams you may see at the Harp on any given Friday. Unlike the dueling piano bars Shout! House and Low Key, the show at the Harp is strictly dueling pianos; there are no other featured instruments, except for Cathie Kings occasional cameo. This allows more attention to audience requests, and songs that might not make it into the lineup at the bigger clubs.
This Saturday, May 23rd, its a one-time premier of dueling pianos featuring Steve Kostakes and Randy Keith, both veteran dueling piano players who regularly appear at the Harp. Join them for all your requests on Saturday night, as they hope to get a regular monthly show to continue at that venue.
On the West Side?
The only exclusive dueling piano bar on the West side of Phoenix is the Shout! House, located at Westgate. The Shout! House has two other popular locations, in Minneapolis and in San Diegos Gaslamp district. Veteran dueler Don Bruner, formerly full-time on the staff at the San Diego location, has joined the Glendale team as the entertainment director. The other talented musicians at Shout! comprise Carl Dees, Ben Murphy and Johnny Greco. The team takes turns throughout the night, giving a dose of traditional dueling piano humor and repertoire, along with hourly band numbers. On Saturday, the dueling piano band is joined by violinist extraordinaire, Cathie King.
The Shout! House is open Wednesday through Sunday nights, with shows starting at 8pm weekdays, 7pm weekends.
