you so much for your [school fund raiser] entertainment. We had a
blast. Someone told me that it was like being at a family party.
This is the closeness that our school family has. Everyone needed to

service club had a great time using Piano Wars! as their
entertainment. Piano Wars! really got our crowd going. They
didn't take any breaks and they kept up the excitement. Every single
person had a smile on their face by the end of the evening. Thank you so
much for helping make our fund raiser a successful event!"
"Piano Wars! was
a hit! LOTS AND LOTS of favorable comments. In fact two people asked me
for you phone number. They are thinking of ways you can help them with
their own fund raisers, so hopefully you’ll get more business.
Here is an e-mail I just received:
wanted to let you know that our staff is still raving about your Dueling
Pianos event. Kudos to you and your team. Everyone attending

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."
CROWD LOVED IT!
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
