Dueling Pianos is an interactive musical experience. Take two pianos, two energetic and talented performers, a whole lot of requests and interaction from your audience – and you create an evening of fun!
Over the years we have often gotten requests from clients looking for Dueling Pianos as an option for the entertainment portion of their event. Unfortunately, most of the Dueling Piano acts we checked out are just way too offensive for us to attach our name to and contract with our clients. A few others are very talented – but are priced excessively high and again do not present a good option and value for our clients. The good news is we now have an excellent option to offer featuring two guys who know how to lead people through a fun night of singing and playing and just enjoying the moment.
G.L. Berg Entertainment’s Dueling Pianos is a great option for you to consider. Prices range from $1,500.00 to $2,500.00 plus rooms and these experienced pros also bring their own sound and keyboards to make it a turn-key event.
We are 100% clean for all ages. No abusive performances here. If you are looking for a totally clean, yet funny and exciting show, we are it. We have performed together for over six years and never use fill in partners, which is common with many traveling dueling piano “teams.” I boast this. It really matters.
We are just plain fun silly people who do not share the same performance skills or personality traits, which means there is a ton of variety and unique tools at our disposal.
Modern society seems to lean towards eliminating individuality. We specialize in featuring it and this evident contrast between Johnny and myself is a huge entertainment plus. We drag along tons of props and skit toys for us all to have fun with. The stage area looks like a toy store. Making your event fun and memorable is easy, pleasurable, and natural for us.
Rob Vacanti – AKA Roberre.
Rob began playing theater organ at age 13. Rob has played all over, blah blah blah, can we eat now?
John Griggs – AKA Johnny “The Mind” Griggs.
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.

This artist does not have a special rider attached to their contract. The only thing they really need is a place to plug in (a 20 amp circuit is plenty). Specific details can be discussed when contracting artist.
