New York City Dueling Pianos

New York City Dueling Pianos

The Midtown Theater @ HA! Comedy Club, 163 West 46th Street

Friday and Saturday Nights, 10 pm

I went to Dueling Pianos in Times Square, which is a bit cheesy..but a blast! All camp type songs – Billy Joel, Bruce, Bon Jovi, etc. Stuff you know from the 60s to 80s. People bid on songs and you can bid to make them stop playing a song. It’s good old fashioned fun and my girlfriends and I danced and sang for 4 hours. One of them called it “the best $9 you can spend in NYC.”

It’s a show, it’s a concert, it’s a bar and with Mark Rivera, the incredible saxophone player from Billy Joel’s Band (above), you can’t beat it for a fun weekend night!
