Meet " The Hippie and The Redneck ".
We are not the typical obnoxious Sam Kinison style bullying Dueling Show. We are a more casual Jeff Foxworthy comedic show . Funny, yes. Great music, Yes. Just listen to the music and see the audience fun photos as they tell the story.
We have performed together for over 10 years. We never use fill in partners which is common with Dueling Teams and we do not mooch tips. We specialize in Corporate Events, Fund Raisers, and Weddings. At weddings, we offer the combination of our DJ services along with Dueling Pianos at no extra charge. No breaks, 100% clean for all ages, unless you specify the "Adult " show.
We do not post our schedule as most of our events are closed to the general public. This keeps your event safe from having the drunk guys coming in yelling " Play some Skynyrd, man".
John Griggs - AKA Johnny "The Mind".
Farm boy gone wild. John discovered dueling pianos in 1993. Thinking that it looked like fun, he began learning the skills needed to be successful in this brand of entertainment. John has had many years of experience in live performance since 1970's. Although all of it is not piano, as John is a multi-instrumentalist. John has performed dueling pianos at the old "Bugsy's" in downtown Minneapolis as well as "L'tl Ditty's" at the Mall Of America. In 2000 he and a partner formed "The Ivory Kings". With a non stop schedule of night clubs, college bars, dance halls, casinos and corporate events, they were the original piano show in Kansas City, MO, Toledo, OH, Wilkes Barre, PA and Lake Okoboji, Iowa.
Just my opinion here - John is the Johnny Carson of dueling pianos. His personality, enthusiasm, awareness, and skill sets have earned him the nickname " The Mind". Everyone loves this guy. I mean it. John is joy, manifested right before your eyes. He is the best of all of us in this field and is the magical marriage of music and comedy.
Rob Vacanti - North Woods Fishing Guide Gone Piano.
Fishing anyone? Rob lives in North West Minnesota and spends his time fishing and guiding people to trophy Walleye, Crappie, Bass, and Northern Pike. Lot's of fun but it gets better as every week includes entertaining in Crazy Keys Dueling Pianos. This pretty much sums up everything a normal human needs in life.
And now the "Bio" - Rob began playing theater organ at age 13. Rob has played all over and in every band, blah blah blah, can we eat now?
