"We had a blast at Hensville Park in Toledo!  We booked a VIP table as soon as we saw info about this dueling pianos event.  Our group of 10 absolutely LOVED the show! What a great time!  The music was awesome! Very entertaining, and lots of interaction with the audience!  Thanks so much to Jeepfest for bringing great entertainment to the area!  And for FREE!  Letís do it again soon! It was fun to see many smiles, and hear all of the applause, laughter, and sing alongs!  You guys ROCK!"

"I had the pleasure of attending Jeepfest on August 11 in Toledo, Ohio.  The highpoint of the evening was the dueling piano duo, Piano Wars!, at Hensville Park.  I have been to many venues that have featured a dueling piano team, but this is the first time in a concert setting.  The duo was highly entertaining and was able to keep a large crowd on their feet and dancing.  I look forward to seeing them again in whatever bar, wedding, or festival they perform."

"Thanks for the GREAT show!  Thoroughly entertaining.  We will be in touch again."

Hensville Toledo



"What an amazing show!  We had the opportunity to hear Piano Wars! at Hensville in Toledo during JeepFest.  These guys were very high energy, had the crowd engaged the entire time, and put on an excellent show!  I highly recommend catching this power-packed duo at their next event!  If you havenít seen them, make the time!"

"I attended Piano Wars!' show on Saturday night in Toledo and thought they were great. I have seen numerous Dueling Piano shows from Detroit to Vegas to St. Maarten. Piano Wars' show ranks at the top. Dave and Paul certainly entertained. They seemed to figure out what the crowd wanted and just kept delivering. It was refreshing to see a show that steered away from the traditional 'Cover Band' style of music. Sure, Dave and Paul played cover tunes. But these guys are Dueling Pianos. I believe that this form of entertainment is just that.  Entertaining. Rock songs? Yep. Country music? Yep. Gospel? Yep. TV theme songs? Yep. The list goes on. These guys played it all!  All of this, complete with props and crowd choreography. And did I mention that this was a free show?!! Thank you to Jeep Fest Toledo and Hensville for booking this act."

"Hey Dave, thanks again for playing at our festival. We heard nothing but great comments on you guys and our Friday kickoff! Just wanted to let you know dates for next year so we can book you guys again."

"We recently had the pleasure of having Piano Wars! perform the full nine days of our 2011 MontanaFair.  They far exceeded our expectations.  Dave Caruso and his performers were very professional and adapted their show very well to our family friendly fair audience.  They required little of our staff and put on a top notch show each and every time.  They performed three 1-hour sets nightly at our Beer Garden and the results were fantastic.  The venue was full during their performances and the audience was engaged and having a great time.  Even when the crowd seemed hesitant to participate, Dave and the other performers would find a way to get them singing, dancing, and having fun.  We saw several repeat audience members coming back again and again to enjoy the show which was different every time and the venue saw an increase in sales this year.  We will be rebooking Piano Wars! for our 2012 MontanaFair."

Jessica Baldwin

"We are a nine-day fair in August on a 189-acre site.  Our attendance is 240,000.  For the past 3 years, we have hired Dave Carusoís Piano Wars! to play at our patio, which also serves as a popular beer outlet for our Exchange Club.  I have observed Piano Wars! each day of our nine-day fair for all three years.  I canít say enough about the enjoyment the fairgoers have at each of their three shows a day.  Our fair caters to people from hundreds of miles away and represents many demographics in our region.  People love Dave Caruso and his Piano Wars! dueling pianos show.  Many fans come back to enjoy them over and over.  I would highly recommend Dave and Piano Wars! for any event.  Please call me if you have any questions."

"When you played for our Farmington Area Founders Festival last year, your dueling pianos show was wildly successful.  It was our shining moment.  Our committee met again this year and it was unanimous that we had to have you back."

"I'm happy to say that your Dueling Pianos show was an excellent addition to the Wyandotte Street Art Fair.  Your professionalism, dynamic style, showmanship, and incredible repertoire ensured that everyone in the audience was involved and entertained.  I hope we have the opportunity to work together again very soon!"
