UNVEILING A NEW STANDARD IN ENTERTAINMENT
When we were looking for entertainment, we wanted to embrace a unique style but also engage our guests above and beyond a traditional DJ. Ted Oliver Productions offered a unique approach to guest engagement along with so much more! From the time we booked TOP to the last song, Ted focused on bringing people together and creating an environment for everyone to enjoy. If you are looking to book TOP Inc. for your event, here are our top six reasons
1) Be prepared to sing and dance. Ted empowers people to get up and move, even if it is not on the dance floor. Everyone (literally) encircled the pianos to sing and dance... probably the coolest sight that night.
2) It's more than dueling pianos, it's a life experience. We will always remember dueling pianos and our guests will too.
3) Accommodating and flexible with a schedule. Ted adjusted his schedule to accommodate ours.
4) Watch for the unexpected. You'll find people dancing and singing that typically stay seated at receptions.
5) Expect rave reviews from guests. Everyone we've talked with simply loved Ted. These reviews reassured us why Ted was the right and only choice for our entertainment.
6) Extras. You'll hear more than just pianos...

From production to performing, from booking to consultation, we take care of it all!
We are not background music! A show produced and performed by Ted Oliver Productions Dueling Pianos is a headline event. We can and do provide dinner/background music via ipod, but when our entertainers take the stage, it is game on and we are the very best at rockin' your event. We also understand that we are not the stars of the show - You are! When only the best will do, call on the company that prides itself on delivering the very best interactive musical experience available anywhere.

Ted Oliver Productions - My name is my word.
Club owners - We can take care of all your planning, set up, staff training show direction and booking for dueling pianos in your venue. A venue set up hastily, incorrectly, with cheap equipment or with less than experienced players will cost 10's of thousands of dollars in lost revenue annually. We can guide you to maximize your guest experience and therefore maximize your revenue. From production to performing from booking to consultation, we take care of it all.

Wedding Reception in Carmel, CA on 05/26/2012
"The BEST!!! Ted played for our wedding at the Mission Ranch, Carmel, CA. Everyone from little kids to grandparents had a blast! My new husband and I love dueling pianos and have gone to shows in Texas, Georgia, Las Vegas, Key West, and of course here in California. He is absolutely the best of the best. We saw him perform in Danville, CA before the wedding and we had no questions that we wanted him to play at our wedding.
From the start to finish, he made the process very easy.
Thank you Ted!"

Super Bowl Party in Denison, IA on 02/04/2012
"Our community came out to support help support a local project and ending up with one of the most memorable shows we have had in years. Our town is relatively small 8500 people. There were close to 450 people rockin and rollin to Ted's music. They played an extra one and one-half hours. People just keep coming up with more money to keep the on stage. It was fantastic!"

Wedding Reception in Crystal Lake, IL on 10/01/2011
"Ted made our wedding reception so fun and memorable. We have had nothing but compliments from people about how entertaining his show was and how they could not believe they didnt take a break all night. I am so glad we didnt go with a live band or DJ, Ted was absolutely wonderful. He was also very professional and organized through the entire process that he helped make our wedding planning easier! I would highly recommend Ted Oliver Productions to anyone who wants to do something a little bit different and fun for their event!"

"Ted Oliver Productions put on a fantastic show! We had a crowd of 1,000 people, and they retained at least 90% of the folks throughout the show! The majority of our crowd had not been to a dueling piano performance and were unsure if they were going to enjoy it... I must say everyone had a great time! Huge success! They read the audiece perfectly and would strongly recommend them to anyone!

We had a congo line that went through the entire hall and Ted's other player played the trumpet. I would highley recommend Ted Oliver productions for your next party...
Thank you very much, it was a night we won't forget."

Wedding Reception in Galena, IL on 08/18/2012
"Ted Oliver Productions played for my wedding reception in a brewery in Galena. The pianists were playing to a rough crowd for a few songs before everyone got into the swing of things. In addition to being extremely talented musicians and singers, they were really great entertainers and quick to get the whole crowd involved. Eventually, all the tables were moved out of the way so everyone could dance. If Ted didn't know a song, no problem -- he just played it on his computer. It was such a blast and definitey a unique and unforgettable experience. Several of my friends said it was the most fun wedding reception they'd ever been to. Thanks to Ted and his team!!"
