Dear Tony,

There just aren’t words to convey to you how much we appreciate you and Daina. You are the ones who made the reception a REAL party……not us! Everyone of us is already scheming a way to do this again. I’m not kidding!

Thank you for being so enthusiastic from the start and so darn easy to work with. You made me feel so comfortable and so secure that I didn’t spend one minute worrying about your part of the wedding. I can’t thank you enough.

I wish I knew for certain that our paths will cross again some time, it would make this easier. But whether we see each other again or not, just know that I wish you all good things in the future. You are a great guy!

Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Oh, you need to know that Abram and Dani said they thought their wedding was “Perfect.” How is that for a testimonial??? And that is why we parents (as you well know) do what we do. They were so ‘over the moon’ happy with their special night. Thank you for your HUGE contribution. Please pass this on to Daina.

Tony,

I can't thank you enough for performing at my 50th Birthday party and for making the event "fabulous". It was a night I will never forget. You were amazing and our family and friends were so impressed with you and your partner. Everyone had a great time and we owe that largely to you. The night was perfect and I so hope we can have you back in Maryville to perform in the future. Thank you.

Best wishes to you.

"We are a historic theater nestled in The Kansas Flint Hills. We have a very small population and wanted to find an act that would bring people from Topeka, Manhattan, and other neighboring towns. We did some marketing on Facebook, newspapers, and on posters around the area. We sold out our entire house. TWICE! We had to add tables for this event,which is a beautiful problem to have for a small theater. Tony and his staff are a party in a box. They arrived, set up, and put on a great show that necessitated an extra hour to keep the audience from revolting. From the very first email I sent to the last, I could not have been happier with Tony and his crew."

My sister and her husband married in May 2016 on a Californian beach near where they live in the presence of their parents and a few friends in a small, intimate ceremony. In July, they traveled to St. Louis and New York to celebrate their marriage with family and friends who could not attend the wedding in California. While searching the internet for fun & unique entertainment for a party to celebrate my sister and her new husband’s recent marriage with our family and friends in St. Louis, I came across Tony B’s Dueling Pianos.

From the first moment I talked with him on the phone, I knew he was a genuine guy. I was so blessed that he had just had a cancellation for the date I wanted in July. Tony was very flexible in working out the details for his show at the party. It was not a typical wedding reception with announcing the couple, toasts, first dances, etc. Also, the party was held at a small venue that would not have room for dueling pianos. Tony assured me he could do the show solo with just one piano.

Tony and his assistant, Frankie, kept in continual contact with me over the month of planning the party. They showed up in the afternoon on the day of the event to set up to make sure everything was ready for that evening. Tony put on an amazing show for an audience age 3 to 88. He played every song requested, from pop to oldies to country. He had an easy manner and infectious energy about him that made everyone feel comfortable to join in the singing, and dancing.

I had mentioned to Tony that my daughter has played piano since age 5 and had written a couple of songs. He suggested she play them at the party that night. That opportunity blessed my daughter and our family and friends so much! Tony even invited our musical friends from the audience to get their instruments and play along with him. By the end of the night I felt Tony and Frankie were friends just like everyone in the room. Many of our family and friends mentioned how talented Tony was and what a fun night they had at the party. If I ever plan another party event in the future that requires fun, unique entertainment, I will be giving Tony and Frankie a call! Thanks guys!

Tony was super easy to work with, and made our event the best ever! We received TONS of feedback the next day from our clients, how they loved the entertainment. We will not hesitate to hire Tony again for future activities! Great job!!

My daughter and I chose Tony solely from his video clips. We had no knowledge of him, but were able to talk to someone who had just used Tony for a recent wedding and was pleased. If you are looking for a fun time for the wedding party as well as the other guests, Tony will deliver. It is good to be able to tailor the music to achieve the flavor of the event. Your guests will probably tell you, as ours did, that it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended.

Washington Savings Bank

Effingham, Ilinois - Solo Show Holiday Party

We loved having Tony B’s Dueling Pianos for our Bank’s Christmas Party. We choose to have Tony do his one man show and it turned out great. Tony puts on a great show all by himself. He is entertaining, gets the crowd involved and can play and sing almost anything requested. We received many compliments from our employees about what a great party it was and how much fun they had. We would definitely recommend Tony B’s Dueling Pianos for any entertainment need.

Iowa State Homecoming Event

Tony, entertaining a crowd that goes from age 18 - 88+ is extremely difficult, but you and Megan pulled it off. I received numerous compliments from our college students and from my older guests. The guests from the '60s and '70s loved it, too. Thanks for making our Friday night a Super Homecoming event

Your choice of Tony and Megan was the Coup de' Grace, or Corpus Delecti, as it were. What a wonderful pair, and their choice of tunes was right on. Whatever they cost was well worth it...and I'm sure that you sensed that the audience felt the same..."

Tony,

Everyone had a great time at the wedding and the dueling pianos were a hit, just like we had hoped for. Many of our guests stayed much longer than they would have normally, which is a testament to the great atmosphere created by everyone involved.

You and Daina were easy to work with and kept the crowd engaged the entire night. We appreciate you taking the time to learn our favorite songs and adding a personal touch to our event! Many of our friends and family are still talking about the wonderful time they had. Thanks again for making the trip to Andale. You are both very talented and we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so special."
