Always a Smashing Hit
The dueling pianos never cease to pack the house at our large entertainment events on board the Queen Mary in Long Beach. They are so professional with a great repertoire. Whether entertaining in our intimate Jazz club setting or performing in our massive Grand Salon, these guys know how to put on a show that keeps people cheering for more. Thanks for another solid show!

More than your money’s worth!
If you’re in need of some high-energy, interactive, memorable entertainment for your event, 2 Grand will deliver 200%! I hired them for a cruise on the Hornblower (Yelp’s 10-Year Anniversary!) and they were the definite highlight of the event. Guests were singing, dancing, shouting, cheers-ing, and begging for more!
Michael and his partner in piano crime played for 3 hours straight! They arrived with plenty of time to set-up, and were totally self-sufficient from start to finish (as an event planner, this is invaluable!) Best of all, they incorporated our event theme into their performance without me even having to ask. I felt that they were just as interested in making the event successful as I was, and that’s priceless!
For corporate events, private parties, or any occassion that needs a boost of energy, I can recommend 2 Grand wholeheartedly!

Wow what a show!! Michael was wonderful to work with and my group had a blast. I have heard many different dueling piano groups and this was by far the best. Great crowd interaction and all the requests were met. I would highly recommend 2 Grand Entertainment.
Despite photos, sound clips, videos and even reviews, there is always an element of risk involved when selecting corporate entertainment (unless you have the budget for the big names). I took that risk with 2 Grand Entertainment for an awards afterglow event and won big. These guys had senior level executives from some very well known Fortune 100 companies singing and dancing the night away. Even our owners got involved. If you’re looking to add a new level of engagement to your networking reception or an afterglow event, I high recommend 2 Grand Entertainment.

Talented, Friendly, Fun! Great Wedding Music
2 Grand Entertainment did all the music for our wedding reception. We did two pianos and one drummer which started during the cocktail hour. They mixed a little DJ time with some live songs. They handled the party introductions; formalities like dances, dessert moment etc. and everything seemed seamless. After all the formal stuff, the dance floor was packed all night! They listened to the crowd for requests and mixed genres/age groups so well. I will never forget that night, the music, the dancing and would absolutely recommend them to everyone.
Wedding Reception in Chico, California
Michael performed at our wedding and was absolutely fantastic. He did our wedding ceremony music, cocktail hour music, and a dueling piano show after dinner. It was both and enjoyable and easy to work with him (including a last minute change to the ceremony music the morning of the wedding)! Everyone had a great time and I strongly encourage you to contact him.
Wedding Reception in Napa, California
These guys are amazing!
We host a cooperate event twice a year with 500 of the top Realtor’s and Lenders across America. During our Thursday night dinner, we have entertainment come in. The California Dueling Pianos were a HUGE hit. They were interactive, funny, entertained the audience and did everything they were requested to do. Not only was their act great, they also helped redeem the night from a comedy act that failed MISERABLY! They took over the stage and ended the night on a high. I would HIGHLY recommend these guys to anyone looking for different entertainment for a cooperate event and we will have them back soon!

Twice the fun, twice the entertainment
The are of the dueling pianos is literally in good hands with the gentleman at 2 Grand Entertainment. They know how to play, they have a wide repertoire of songs to choose from, and most importantly they know how to engage an audience. I’ve seen them perform twice now at two large scale events (one of which I hired them for) and each time they turned what could have been standard ambient background music into a party-wide participatory affair! I wouldn’t hesitate for an instant to hire them again.
Festival in Sacramento, California
My bride and I booked 2 Grand Entertainment as our Music for our wedding. The played all music requested for the ceremony, and provided the p.a. system! The communication leading up to the big day was clear concise and responded in a timely manor. The show was AWESOME! fun engaging, and professional. The look of the equipment, the professionalism couldn’t be matched will a simple DJ. I would recommend 2 grand for any and all events big or small, They bring the energy, fun, and an unforgettable experiance!!!
Wedding Reception in Oakley, California
We hired 2 Grand Entertainment to be the entertainment at our wedding and we are so glad that we did. The dueling pianos added a unique element of fun to the reception and really helped to create the enjoyable wedding that we had hoped for. Our guests seemed to appreciate their live music and the opportunity to interact with the entertainment. Overall, 2 Grand Entertainment was a hit!
I just wanted to let you know that Saturday nights Dueling Pianos Show was a hit at the District Conference. Dennis and Ron were just amazing entertainers and kept the group going. I have had a few Rotarian’s ask about the group and have forwarded them your contact information.
Thanks again for a great evening.
Michael and his partner were awesome at our corporate reception in Las Vegas last week. Everyone had a blast, music sounded excellent, songs were great, and really enjoyed the humor! I recommend Michael for any event and would certainly work with him again in the future. Thanks and have a great holiday!

Holiday Party in Napa, California
Let me just say, AWESOME! I first called Michael to inquire about the show and was excited to hear what they could provide. Being a party planner for our entire company is difficult because of all the different age groups and personalities. 2 Grand Entertainment well exceeded my expectations. In past years our guests ate dinner and left. Almost everyone stayed until the end of the night. Everyone, LOVED the show. It was fun to see people get involved with the music and interact with the performers. I was fully impressed, as was our entire company. It was professional and a super solid experience for myself and everyone else. Thank you, Michael. People said it was the best party they have ever attended!

Absolutely fantastic! We received many compliments from our guests and everyone had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend 2 Grand Entertainment for anyone looking to hire dueling pianos. We did add the guitarist and drummer which was a great addition as well.
Everyone was highly entertained and it kept the party going for a long time. We appreciate how you both catered to people of all ages. Thanks again!!
With Michael’s fantastic effort and talent I was able to throw myself the exact party that I wanted to throw. It was exactly what I wanted and hoped!
High Energy Dueling Pianos
Michael and Charlie were great performers and very talented piano players. They were very energetic and got the crowd involved and excited. They exceeded my expectations and threw a great party. No other entertainment was needed at all. They kept the audience completely engaged for three hours. The attendees were raving about the type of music being played as well as the atmosphere that the dueling pianos brought to our event. We would definitely recommend 2 Grand Entertainment!
Great end to evening
We contracted 2 Grand Entertainment to do a dueling piano performance after dinner at our Users Conference and they also played during dinner. We could not have been more pleased. They put on a fun performance, were easy to work with and adapted to our crowd very well. Overall a great performance.

Corporate Event in Camarillo California
I had seen 2 Grand Entertainment perform at a local watering hole in S.F. prior to my planning this conference and thoroughly enjoyed their show. When looking for options for my event I instantly thought that dueling pianos would be the perfect entertainment for our needs. I was very pleased with their professionalism during the planning and set up phase at my event not to mention their incredible performance which left my guests wanting more. I also really appreciated that Michael and his associate were more than willing to stay an extra half hour due to the high demand for more from the crowd. These guys are great for any event – Hire them!!!
We had 2 Grand Entertainment perform at our Crow Canyon is Dueling fundraiser benefiting the Discovery Counseling Center of San Ramon Valley. Michael and his dueling piano partner Dave, were talented, charismatic and endeared themselves to people in attendance. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the evening’s entertainment or the professionalism of performers.
Fun for everyone!
These guys were the entertainment for our company holiday party and did a great job. The crowd was a little hesitant at first but they got them warmed up soon enough and by the end people were performing Grease, Rocky Horror Picture Show and so much more. I would highly recommend if you want to liven up a party.
Corporate Event in Alameda, California
I can only speak for John Crampton, who played at our event. He is great. Wonderful player and singer, and I was instantly comfortable with him as soon as he showed up and introduced himself. He was flexible in terms of repertroire, knew when to engage with the crowd, and when to hang back, and was a consummate professional. Everyone loved the music, and he just did everything right. I’d hire him again in a second for any type of event. Thanks John! He ain’t cheap, but totally worth it!
Birthday Party in San Francisco, California
We hired the Dueling Pianos for our conference’s banquet and they were great entertainment! We requested them to include special key-terms (jargon relevant to our group) in the songs and they did so willingly and wonderfully. I would highly recommend them!

Kept Us Moving on Chilly Vegas Evening!
2 Grand Entertainment played at our corporate event on March 3, 2015, in Las Vegas. It turned out to be a pretty cold evening and they were troopers! They really kept the party vibe going despite the chilly weather. We were really happy with how their playlist fit our party theme and then when things really got going, they played current music. These guys do not disappoint!

My husband and I hired 2 Grand Entertainment for our wedding on August 15, 2014 in San Rafael, CA. Michael took care of everything we needed in regards to music. From the ceremony, to the background music during dinner, cake cutting and performing his Piano Blast show for dancing. We have had many compliments on our choice of entertainment he was a big hit! He catered to the adults and children alike and played whatever songs were requested and many others we forgot to request. He also had a chest full of goodies that the kids loved from Boas to sunglasses. We would highly reccomend 2 Grand Entertainment for your next event!
