Mother’s Day Dueling Pianos playlist

For all the moms, and those who love them, tomorrow is the big day.
But TONIGHT is our Saturday 8pm Dueling Pianos show, and as always, Shake Rattle & Roll Pianos is here with your must-hear playlist for this week’s piano bar visit!

For the headbanger in your house – Danzig’s MOTHER. When just flowers and candy simply will not do.

Something more old-school? Nothing beats some classic girl-group singalongs, like MAMA SAID by The Shirelles!

And for those who need a little reminder of who’s boss in the house….enter LL COOL J – this’ll sound good on piano, right?

Every list needs a little ‘cheek’, and this gives you both. STACY’S MOM…A Dueling Pianos MUST. For any occasion.

And for the family that ‘plays’ together. Who can’t do with more QUEEN?
We’ll see ya later, at the Dueling Pianos show!

Dueling Pianos – Video of the Week = LIVESTREAM!

Now that our Dueling Pianos live stream shows are ending their second month, we’re getting the hang of all this new technology, and bringing the audience right onscreen with us!

We’re continuing to expand the ways that we can capture that great, interactive experience we all love, until we can share the same oxygen again.

Musical Chairs: The Ultimate Music Game!

There are all kinds of online games and game shows.
But there has NEVER been an interactive event like MUSICAL CHAIRS – where the last man (or woman) standing takes home the prize, in the Battle Royale of musical knowledge.

Every week, contestants compete until just one remains.
A multi-round event, with trivia, name-that-tune, Don’t Forget The Lyric challenges, rapid-fire battles, and of course, the final Musical Chairs round, where only ONE player remains, and is crowned the Champion.

Coming later this month. You won’t wanna miss it.

May the 4th/Cinco De Mayo Dueling Pianos playlist

It seems this quarantine week is flush with holiday celebrations, which is good when any distraction is welcome. Finally Cinco De Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday, and we can’t even go out to celebrate. The universe has no justice.
BUT, Shake Rattle & Roll Dueling Pianos is here to help – with your piano bar playlist for the week!

Because piano bars are nothing without a little kitsch, we have to honor the great Bill Murray and his piano bar entry for Star Wars…
Now, moving on…

Ok, we’re not done with kitsch yet. Everyone loves the 90’s. Everyone loves Ricky Martin. Let’s live La Vida Loca!

Any Dueling Pianos playlist has to bring some hip hop. And any NYC Dueling Pianos show has to show some Beastie Boys luv. It’s time to get INTERGALACTIC!

And if we’re exploring space, we need to bring those 80’s rockers, Europe, for everyone’s hairband anthem – THE FINAL COUNTDOWN.

And here’s a little current flavor for your piano bar visit – the talented Camila Cabello, and HAVANA.
Give that one a twirl at your next Dueling Pianos night!

And if we’re going into space, we gotta make it funky!
Enter Earth, Wind & Fire for a little FANTASY!

Dueling Pianos Entertainment – the week ahead!

We’ve got another jam-packed week of piano bar entertainment for you!


Tickets for all events are available at

And, coming up 5/17, at Noon EDT, it’s our BRUNCH WITH THE BIRDS online show, raising money for a local New Jersey jewel –


One of the few remaining public spaces that is still open and welcoming.
They focus on education, conservation and preservation, and are entirely public-funded.

You can give a hoot at!

Dueling Pianos request list -May 2020!

It’s time for the next installment of songs to keep you singing at the Dueling Pianos show. Just because we’re singing along from home shouldn’t keep us from raising the game a little, right?
So, here’s a handy list of ideas for the month of May.

No list for this time of year would be complete without the meme-able classic by NSync.

Now that we got that out of the way, this classic rock artist has seen an uptick of requests at our Dueling Pianos shows lately, and this song never gets old…

Of course, a healthy dose of kitsch never goes away, even online. And if you’re new to the Dueling Pianos world…well, hey, we just met you, but…

Take a Beatle, add some piano, and you get an awesome song for your next piano bar trip.

You didn’t think we’d end a monthly list of Dueling Pianos song choices without at least one selection from the man himself, right?
Take it away, Billy…

Livestream Dueling Pianos Shows!

If you are trying to think of ways to entertain your staff, clients, family, friends, potential customers, or members, the options may seem slim at the moment.

But Shake Rattle & Roll is here, with an online option for you!

We can livestream our solo & Dueling Pianos shows, onto any platform, or even a private Zoom room, and interact with your guests for a private singalong show!

Maybe a fun game show, like PIANO BINGO, NAME THAT TUNE, DONT FORGET THE LYRICS, or a music trivia game like our brand new MUSICAL CHAIRS…

In just the past month, we’ve organized private events for country clubs, sales meetings, client mixers, birthday parties, neighborhood socials and more.

Contact us with your event ideas, and let’s get the party started!

It’s #OnlyIntermission!

Right now, as all the theater fans know all too well, our beloved Times Square is entering week SIX of shut-downs. This usually bustling neighborhood has fallen eerily quiet lately.

Our normally sold-out DUELING PIANOS show has moved online.

But as we say in the theater, it’s only intermission. Between the acts there’s always a short break.

Then comes the second act. And the show roars back to life.

So it is for us at Shake Rattle & Roll Pianos. Our online shows are reaching THOUSANDS of people every week, from across the country and around the world.

We’ve developed new products, like PIANO BINGO, that we are looking to continue into the future.

In every cloud, a silver lining. In every story, a second act. And the best shows know the value of a good reprise!
