MASTER ENTERTAINERS.

"We recently had the pleasure of having Dave Caruso’s Piano Wars! perform at a fund raiser.

 

The guys were a blast and are masters at getting the crowd involved and having fun without making anyone uncomfortable. They had the whole room roaring with laughter, singing, and simply having a fantastic time.

 

The fun and interaction of the show its self is only half of what makes piano wars so impressive.  Dave is incredibly professional and meticulous in coordinating the event. He was in contact with me several times before the event just to make sure everything was coming along OK and to see if we needed anything. He actually sends over a diagram of the optimum way to arrange seating. He also sends over an event check list that lets you pick the type of pre- and post-performance music, the language rating for the show (G, PG, or R), what time the dinner music should start, when the entertainment should start etc. They even asked for a few names of “good sports” to be called up to the stage to interact with the guys.

 

Whether you have planned events in the past or this is your first time, you will love working with Piano Wars. The performance is a guaranteed success but more importantly, Dave Caruso makes the process so easy all you have to do is provide the venue, promote it and they do the rest."

 Dennis Murphy
Northville, Michigan

THE CROWD LOVED IT!

"We recently had Dave Caruso's Piano Wars! dueling piano show for a fundraiser event. Dave was extremely professional and organized and he helped us every step of the way, setting up our event to best suit our particular needs. The crowd LOVED Piano Wars!  Dave did a great job getting the crowd going with lots of audience participation.  I would recommend them for any type event you might have.  It was wonderful!"
