"After enjoying a night out at Michael Murphy’s Dueling Piano Bar in Oklahoma City, I knew that Chris’ performance couldn’t be beat. I had to bring him to our winery in California to entertain our guests at a big party we were throwing. He showed up on time, his setup looked great, and I loved the partner he chose to perform with, they rocked the party and no one wanted them to stop! Lots of my guests approached me telling me what  great idea bringing in dueling pianos was, we are considering making it an annual event! They read the crowd, got many guests involved, everyone was singing and having a great time. If you’re looking for talented entertainers, look no further than Music City Dueling Pianos".
