Dueling Pianos - Charity Fundraisers and Galas

Looking to raise a little capital for your charity organization? When it comes to entertaining your guests while at the same time managing silent auctions and even raising money on our own, BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos are experts at charity fundraisers, events and galas.




What We Do That Is Unique
First of all, we give 100% of our tips generated to your charity organization. Unlike other forms of entertainment, BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos are EXPERT tip generators. Inherently, the art form of dueling pianos is to RAISE TIP REVENUE so we are naturals at finding fun and classy ways to raise money for your charity event by earning tips from your guests. It is not uncommon for BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos to raise over $1000.00 in tips in one show. We have many different ways of generating tips at charity fundraisers, such as playing a game of "Stop That Song" where guests get to stop whatever song we are performing by bringing up a tip and a request for another song. This can go on for a long time as different guests will try to outbid each other by "Stopping That Song" with bigger and bigger tips. In order to "Stop That Song" each new tipper must outbid the last person. This can go on for a long time and is very fun and exciting for your guests.

College Fight Song Challenge
One of our most popular fundraising activities is the College Fight Song Challenge! We find out what your guests' rival colleges are and we start a bidding war of tips to find out who's college fight song we are going to perform. Similar to the above game "Stop That Song", different colleges gather together to pool their money in order to come up to the pianos and outbid the previous college to get their fight song played immediately. We will stop performing a college fight song when a different college raises more tips than the previous college. We have seen this go on until we've raised as much as $2000.00 in tips for the charity organization.

It's a WIN / WIN for Everyone
In addition to everyone having the time of their lives singing and dancing along with the Dueling Pianos, there are also funds being raised for your charity event, fundraiser or gala.

BEWARE OF CHEAP IMITATORS!  There are some "fly by the seat of their pants" dueling pianos out there who show up dressed like bums, bring plastic cheap keyboards on stands instead of pianos, and if they are part of the chain dueling piano bars like "scowl at the goon" and "bernie gags" (not their real names, but you get the point) - they will send out their WORST pianists and cheap sound and lighting equipment.  Trust us, we've seen it, and you don't want it.

BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos always brings in state of the art sound and LED lighting equipment, and FULL SIZE grand pianos.  There is NO dueling piano act in the United States that has as much time and equipment invested in their product as BIG SHOW dueling pianos.
