Hi everyone – and welcome to the unofficial start of summer.
Things are heating up outside, and inside at Shake Rattle & Roll Dueling Pianos.
As of today, we are no longer just providing the best in piano entertainment.
We are now a full-service entertainment company – bands, DJs, and of course, the finest solo and Dueling Pianos entertainers anywhere.
We look forward to bringing you all the top party performers, across the genres and across the country.
Don’t look now, the temperature is rising.
For both of our Fleet Week shows – May 27 & 28, @ 10pm, all military personnel in uniform get in FREE. That’s right. FREE. Just our way of saying ‘Thank you for your service.’
Come down to the show, mention our FLEETWEEK blog post, and you’re in.
We’ll see you there!
Released exactly forty years ago today on May 19, 1976, the album that gave dueling piano players everywhere a new finger workout entitled ANGRY YOUNG MAN made its debut.
The musical equivalent of a Bronx cheer for the West Coast, Billy Joel’s TURNSTILES signaled a creative return to his home, with three songs dedicated to the Empire State: Summer Highland Falls, New York State of Mind and Miami 2017. He kicked off the record with Say Goodbye to Hollywood, and included another tune aimed at the decadence of the West Coast – I Loved These Days.
Dissatisfied with the midwest recording sessions for the project, Joel completely re-did the album tracks with his touring band back home, including seminal members (and Long Island natives) Richie Cannata on sax, Russell Javors on guitar and Liberty Devitto on drums.
The cover photo, shot in the NYC subways, has every song physically represented by one of the characters behind Joel.
Jane Little, who debuted as a bassist in Atlanta on Feb. 4, 1945, at age 16 and who has been playing ever since, died during a performance of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Sunday. She was 87, and rumored to be the longest-tenured orchestral musician in the world.
According to a spokeswoman, the orchestra was only moments away from the end of a concert called “Broadway’s Golden Age”. The players were at the end of “There’s No Business Like Show Business” from Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun,” when Little collapsed and was carried backstage by her fellow bassists. She never regained consciousness.

Looks like we’re moving east (one block east, to be exact, from where our Sold Out weekend shows now take place!). Oh, what a difference a block makes!
