Your Dueling Pianos guide for St. Patrick’s weekend

We’re gearing up for the party weekend of the season – where everyone gets a little Irish in ’em!
Here’s your must-have piano bar tunes to bring out the Green!
First, a Boston fave – The Dropkick Murphy’s SHIPPIN UP TO BOSTON!

Ohh, you’re more traditional? Think the tried and true songs don’t fit at a rockin’ Dueling Pianos bar? Don’t let Johnny Cash hear ya…

A great song sounds great, no matter who’s interpreting or re-arranging it.
From Thin Lizzy to Nathaniel Ratliffe to Metallica, there’s no taking the rock out of WHISKEY IN THE JAR.

What’s a Dueling Pianos show without some good clap-along songs? There’s none better than the Wild Rover.

And, let’s forget the Irish lasses, without whom, there’d be no Irish lads.
Another classic Irish song with many versions out there, so here’s Galway Girl, with a country twist!

Your Leap Year Dueling Pianos playlist!

For a day that only comes once every 4 years, we’re breaking out our best dueling pianos songs to celebrate your Leap Year!

First, a little Van Halen to kick things off…

And anyone who knows our NYC Dueling Pianos show, knows our love for boy bands…

There are SO MANY dances one could do on a leap year day. Here’s a sampler…

And of course, some 90’s flavored jumpin’ around…because, who doesn’t want some hip-hop at the piano bar?

Your State of the Union Dueling Pianos playlist

Yes, there’s ALOT of political news lately, but whether you’re left or right, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, we can all agree on what makes a GREAT Dueling Pianos song (or can we…?)
So, here’s some great American songs to bring to your next piano bar outing!
First, a classic singalong for all the American Girls!

The 80’s were full of great Americana songs, so here’s a pair of them, which mix the sweet with the sour. But either way, they’re both solid rock n roll songs and good raise-the-roof hooks.

The country songbook is full of American pride, but for a dueling pianos bar, you have to have some Lee Greenwood.

And finally, coming out of the Super Bowl weekend, ,you have to acknowledge the greatest anthem performance of all time, and a song that literally gets the crowd on its feet…

Our NEW Dueling Pianos showroom!

Starting THIS Saturday night, Feb. 8 2020, Shake Rattle & Roll Dueling Pianos is moving to our NEWER, BIGGER showroom at 259 West 42nd St., NYC 10036 (inside Patrick’s of Times Square).

Your February Dueling Pianos playlist

February is for lovers, groundhogs, and dead Presidents. And we’re here for it! We’ve got some helpful ideas for your February Piano Bar visit…ready?

If you don’t want to relive Groundhog Day like Bill Murray, just play this repetitive track to break the monotony…and take a drink every time you say “ROXANNE!”

And speaking of Groundhog Day, as well as that ‘other’ February holiday…here’s a piano bar request for all the couples out there.

Of course, dueling pianos shows are not the best place for those Valentine’s Day ballads, but who doesn’t love a good Elton John tear jerker?

When thinking about Presidents’ weekend, especially those Washingtons’ and Lincolns’, we reflect on the words of the poet laureate, Notorious BIG…Mo Money, Mo Problems…

But of course, there’s always the Presidents of the USA…and a song about PEACHES…or is it?

And our last Dueling Pianos song tip, in honor of our brand new showroom at Patrick’s of Times Square…this lil ditty…FORTY SECOND STREET!
