    Best and only way to party!!!

    My husband and I absolutely love dueling pianos, and it has been a big part of our relationship. When we were looking for wedding bands and saw this was an option, we immediately booked!! By far the best decision of our big day! It was the perfect way to get the party started, and once it did, it never stopped!!! The band was so easy to communicate with, and they were so accommodating! They took requests, let everyone that wanted to give a speech have the opportunity, and even let our best man take a stab at serenading us!! Could not recommend them enough!! What are you waiting for?! Book today!! They just add that extra fun to your already perfect celebration!!

    Beyond amazing entertainment!!!

    If you gathered the world's top scientists and created the perfect wedding reception entertainment in a lab the result would be AZ Dueling Pianos. Lark and Wes were amazing from start to finish. And when I say start, I really mean it. We met Lark a year before our wedding when she just so happened to be playing at the dueling piano bar where I proposed to my wife with Lark's last minute help. It was her perfect rendition of Bruno Mars's "Marry You" (which she learned on the spot) that really made the proposal perfect. We stayed in touch and were thrilled to learn that she played wedding receptions as AZ Dueling Pianos. We were even more thrilled when we realized that her very reasonable prices actually fit in our budget.
    Throughout the wedding planning, Lark and Wes were so accommodating. They were responsive to all our requests, made helpful suggestions, and were incredibly flexible as we were constantly changing timelines and floor plans. They were even more amazing on the day of the reception. Our biggest fear was that people would not dance at our wedding (smallish wedding with a very plain venue) but those fears immediately subsided as soon as Lark and Wes kicked off the night. From the first note of "Livin' On A Prayer" to the last note of "Don't Stop Believing," the dance floor was packed and our guests loved every second. We lost count of how many people told us "best dance party ever!"
    To top it off, halfway through the night Lark presented us with the exact request card I gave her the night I proposed to my wife over a year earlier. She had it saved in a small frame so that we could keep it forever. Which brings me to my last point. AZ Dueling Pianos will provide great entertainment no doubt, but what really sets them apart is the heart that they put into their event. We will cherish the memories we made with them forever.

    A big hit at our wedding!

    My husband and I used AZ Dueling Pianos for our wedding in Tucson, AZ and they were a big hit! We still have guests from our wedding raving about Wes and Lark!! Wes helped us early on with booking our wedding date and keeping in touch with us through a year of planning. The performance of our first dance song was incredible and hearing it played live made it that much more special, plus they nailed it! Wes beautifully performed our ceremony music, provided cocktail hour music, light vocals and piano for dinner and the reception was a Vegas style Dueling Piano show, which was so much fun! They played a great mix of songs and accepted requests from us and our guests. My husband and I highly recommend AZ Dueling Pianos for any event, especially weddings if you’re looking to really impress your guests. We look forward to seeing them perform again in Arizona and California :)

    Best entertainment ever

    One of my husband's only requests for the wedding was live music. Let me tell you- THESE GUYS MADE THE WEDDING!

    Wes was amazing to work with and is such a true professional. Our guests were on the dance floor all night, and no one has stopped talking about how much fun they had at the wedding.

    They learned the songs we asked, kicked of our fireworks with a perfect rendition of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" and took every request all night. I'm talking EVERY REQUEST. We heard everything from NSYNC to old school rap to country. Every guest was out of their seat dancing all night. Our photographers said that they've honestly never seen such crowd involvement before.

    If I were to plan my wedding again, this would be the very first vendor I would hire, and I would seriously design my budget around them.

    (Also if you hire them for your wedding, please invite me- they were SO MUCH FUN!)

    Where do I begin? To say AZ Dueling Pianos MADE OUR WEDDING RECEPTION is an understatement! They were incredible! I didn’t think our guests were the dancing type of crowd, and a typical reception with a DJ just didn’t seem right for us. I wanted something different, more engaging and entertaining.

    To be honest….when I considered a dueling piano show at our reception, I was nervous about it. I wasn’t sure if it would be well received by our guests. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everyone LOVED it! Having piano players just brought a whole new level of warmth and character to our wedding that we never would have had without them.

    Wes and Lark poured their hearts into a spectacular performance, and their enthusiasm was contagious.

    We wanted the entertainment to begin during dinner, and carry on throughout the remainder of the night. Even our many “non dancing friends” were up and grooving (a few started dancing during dinner!) It was so much fun and people are still raving about it.

    If you are considering AZ Dueling Pianos for your wedding (or any other event) don’t ponder any further, just do it! You won’t regret it!

    Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions. You can also check out a quick video testimonial I did about my experience with AZ Dueling Pianos https://youtu.be/EJi4FG7TJow

    Thank you Wes and Lark!!!!

    If you are looking for unique entertainment at your wedding or other event, look no further than AZ Dueling Pianos! Wes and Collin did an amazing job of keeping everyone entertained with catchy beats during my wedding reception and cocktail hour this past November. Watching them play makes me wish I would have kept up with my piano lessons! They are both so talented and they can play just about any genre of music requested. They are friendly, professional and great to work with. They took special requests for our bridal party grand entrance songs and kept everyone laughing and dancing along with some fun and light-hearted entertainment for a couple of our guests who were celebrating their birthdays. I highly recommend them!

    What a terrific find! Wes and his partner did a great job during both the ceremony and reception. We wanted something different (dueling pianos) for the reception opposed to a band or DJ and AZ Dueling Pianos exceeded our expectations. The crowed had a blast, with many requests. Wes accommodated our iTunes music in between for breaks and it was absolutely perfect, Price very reasonable, hope to use Dueling Pianos for future events.

    AZ Dueling Pianos was the entertainment for our wedding reception and they were fabulous to work with! They learned songs for our special dances even though our first dance song was not a popular or well known song and they performed it beautifully! They worked together with our wedding coordinator to emcee throughout the reception and keep things flowing. Our guests were very impressed and are still talking about how awesome it was to have the dueling pianos and that they could request songs. But of course when our guests requested inappropriate songs, the guys honored our "do not play" list! I would absolutely recommend that you check out AZ Dueling Pianos at their regular bar gigs as well as consider them for your special event!

    it was a great choice to select Wes as our ceremony pianist! He knew my specific song I wanted to walk down the aisle too and really added class to our ceremony.

    As always, the music and entertainment provided by Wes and the Dueling Piano's is top-notch. This is the 2nd year in a row that we had them perform at our house for our Annual Masquerade Ball and we expect to have many more years with them! Everyone at the party enjoyed themselves, the music, the witty banter, and genuine atmosphere and fellowship...in fact most people commented that they have never been to parties where everyone is so in sync with one another and friendships abound. Thanks again to you guys....you bring it all together for us! Much Appreciated....Brian & Kimilee

    Having AZ Dueling Pianos as our wedding reception entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Wes and Nick were extremely professional and communicative, and worked with us to discuss any unique needs or requests we had. Their performance was enjoyed by our guests of all ages. It allowed not only for dancing, but for guests to just sit back and enjoy the music as well.

    AZ Dueling Pianos helped make my wedding day unique and PERFECT! My husband and I were so excited to discover the duo, as we had been on the hunt for dueling pianos to perform at our wedding reception. These guys are super talented and incredible entertainers. They worked with us to create a seamless timeline of music throughout our entire reception. They learned our first dance song, played wonderful ambiance music during dinner, and then blasted open the dance floor. Our guests had such a blast and everyone is still talking about what a great time they had dancing the night away. The guys allowed guests to make requests, which kept everyone involved. They also created great entertainment such as an Elvis impersonator contest between our best man, my husband, and I. They also had the groomsmen sing along to "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" which was definitely a crowd pleaser. From preparation to execution, AZ Dueling Pianos presented themselves with the utmost professionalism and are worth every penny! If you want to have wedding entertainment that your guests will be talking about well after your wedding, these are the guys for you!

    My husband and I were extremely happy with Wes and his playing partner. They knew lots of songs and we were surprised they knew so many older songs, which my parents really enjoyed. We just thought they were wonderful. I would definitely recommend them if you like piano music and need a good band for your reception.

    Wes and Nick performed for me and my husband's wedding May of last year in Phoenix and we enjoyed their service immensely! They were respectful but also had an excellent sense of humor and really got on well with all of our family, which is always appreciated. There was even a song that neither of them knew that my daughter requested, and they looked it up online and then played it for everyone after taking a few minutes to learn it. That was fantastic! We'd recommend these guys to everyone.

    These boys were just wonderful. We had them for our ceremony and then combined some dances in with our cocktail hour. Beautiful singers and my parents and grandmother were just so impressed. this was not my first wedding as it happens. Lovely to have them and I recommend them to other couples of course.

    AZ Dueling Pianos was hired to play at our office party in lieu of a DJ as we had previously had a bad experience in that regard. We received great feedback as to the musical talent and selections that were played. Unfortunately, they ended up functioning more as background music than originally intended as we added casino games to our party and those games competed for everyone's attention. AZ Dueling Pianos are high energy, fun and talented guys who I would highly recommend to anyone who is seeking to have an entertaining, interactive group experience.
