The Original Vancouver Dueling Pianos Show! Hire Dueling Pianos.
Putting their own, unique spin on time tested audience favorites, this act takes the dueling piano concept to a whole new level. They love the simple, classic sound of two pianos going at it and they dish out plenty of it to fans of piano greats such as Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Joel and Elton John! All of this combined with great singing, a massive request repertoire (just try to stump them) and a heavy dose of audience interaction plus two fearless performers, willing to try just about ANYTHING in the name of fun, make this show a guaranteed great time.
The Piano Men are Richard Sera and Andre Kunkel. As long-time members of one of Vancouver’s most popular and beloved party/event bands Dr Strangelove, their unmatched chemistry, experience and talent have helped propel them into the position as the premier dueling pianos act in Vancouver. They performed a hugely successful weekly show at the Grand Villa casino for four years, as well as performing hundreds of corporate shows, building a following and honing their craft to the point of being able to entertain literally
any crowd, with an emphasis on fun, high-energy and crowd participation.
Richard brings the experience of a career on the big stage. As the touring keyboardist for multiple legendary Canadian recording artists – Loverboy, Tom Cochrane, The Payolas/Rock & Hyde, Trooper, Prism, and more - his performing highlights include appearing on The Tonight Show (“Life Is A Highway” with Tom Cochrane), and a yearlong tour opening for Bon Jovi culminating in 2 sold out nights at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium. Richard feels so fortunate to have had those experiences to draw from and put into each and every show he performs.
Andre is a founding member of Dr Strangelove, and his amazing, soulful voice, huge personality, and hilarious sense of humour were a pivotal part of the band’s 15-year epic run as the house band at Vancouver’s iconic Roxy night club. Since that time, he has performed at thousands of corporate events on the west coast and around the world. Andre’s musicality, professionalism, experience, and love of performing make him a formidable force at every gig he does.
