Everything was Wonderful

Everything was wonderful and the guys were great fun to have. Thank you for making this so successful and being easy to work with.

Wow’d All of our Attendees

Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos was a great vendor to work with. They were very easy to communicate and quick to respond in the pre-planning up to the event and WOW’d all of our attendees onsite at the event. The two players went above and beyond to get the audience involved and had everyone in the crowd dancing by the end of the night.

Highlight of Our Wedding Reception

Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos was the highlight of our wedding reception and provided a fun and lively evening that we will be reminiscing on for years to come. My friends and I have a special bond with dueling pianos as we frequented a piano bar in Baltimore during our last year of college. I just had to have this unique and fun addition to my dream wedding, and it was well worth it! I found them on GigSalad and the whole process was seamless. Jacob, the CEO of the company is easygoing and makes the process run so smoothly. He was by far my most responsive vendor – quick, professional, efficient, and flexible with changes. He never made me feel like I was bothering him, which no bride should ever feel about their vendors but unfortunately it happens. I appreciated being able to pay and sign contracts electronically, especially considering that I was planning an out-of-town wedding, mostly over the internet. Jacob took my many suggestions, including my request for lounge-type piano music DURING dinner and assured me that his team could do everything that I requested. Night of, our lead musician was Jeff, who was absolutely wonderful to work with and incredibly talented. He stopped into the bridal suite during cocktail hour, ran through everything quickly, and made sure to pronounce everyone’s names 100% correctly which I really appreciated. The MCing, announcements, and included DJ services (aside from the 3-hour live music set) provided were just the icing on the cake with this group. Sad to say I did not catch the name of the other pianist or the drummer, but we were busy singing and dancing! Friends of all ages stopped us to comment on the music, we were told it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to, and even a bartender at the venue complimented my choice saying that it was a great change of pace from all the DJs they get.

So Much Fun

LOVED having Cutting Edge at our non-profit event!! The trio is so laid-back yet so much fun! Minimal prep was needed on our side – the band brought all the AV equipment they needed – such a plus! Our crowd was out of their seats by the end of the night! Highly recommend.

Hannah French

Would Definitely Recommend

Had the pleasure of hearing these men play at a wedding reception in Saint Charles, Missouri. They were accompanied by 2 grand pianos, a great sound system, and almost every song we requested. The crew sounded great and I would definitely recommend Jake the Piano Man and his crew to anyone looking for an awesome dueling piano band for your event.

Guard Dog

Superb

A very entertaining duo. Well executed and such a fantastic time. They made my 50th Birthday all that more special. They are amazingly talented as they know every song you request, not only do they know it they play it superb. They are fun for any event and make the party complete.

Donna Dzurishin

Hillarious

Cutting edge dueling pianos was the entertainment for a wedding I just attended. They were awesome! They performed a variety of songs and were hilarious when they engaged the crowd. I will be using them at my wedding!

Brian Babcock

Nothing but Awesome

Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos are nothing but awesome! I have been to several of there performances and it has always been a great experience! The musicians are very talented, entertaining and funny. I recommend booking them for your event or party and you wont regret it

Black Rose Cinema

Phenomenal

We had the pleasure of working alongside Jacob and The Cutting Edge Dualing Pianos band a couple of weeks ago for one of our weddings and they are just phenomenal!!  They were SO much fun, had incredible energy and make an awesomely talented team!!  The dance floor was filled with wedding guests dancing the entire evening.  Not only could these guys could play ANY song that was requested, they played it extremely well!!  We’d highly recommend this form of entertainment for your wedding and it can’t get any better than this group of talented musicians.

Fun Filled Evening

Thank you for a fun filled evening.  Dueling Pianos was a 1st time ugh success.  I am sure trapping out to Western Maryland was further than you might like to go, but, we hope you enjoyed “us” too.  Feed back has been immense and due solely to your fine talents!!  We hope to see you next year!!

Soldiers, Spouses Sing and Swing

Jacob,

Oh my goodness!  Last night’s event was sooooo much fun.  Your teammates did a fantastic job!!  Fort Drum’s soldiers and spouses sang and danced like they didn’t have a care in the world.  The sponsor for the event owns (2) hotels and is now interested in hosting dueling pianos events for his guests.  Good stuff!

Thanks,

Talking About the Piano Guys

Our Christmas party last night was a big hit. Today, everyone is talking about “the piano guys.”  We thoroughly enjoyed hearing talented musicians with a keen sense of what would energize our group.  Your act was just perfect for our corporate event.  Thanks for entertaining us!

Nonstop Fun

This was our 15th year of our annual Christmas party thanking our employees for a job well done.  Jacob and Jimmy provided the best entertainment yet for all 180 that attended.  The fun never stopped and they did a great job of getting everyone involved in having fun.

Look forward to seeing these two talented gentlemen again.

A Showdown Match-of-Melodies

Jacob,

I wanted to take a minute and personally thank you and your Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos Team for performing at our Carthage Area Hospital Foundation’s fundraiser this past weekend.

What an outstanding piano showdown!  We were entertained by Landon and Jimmy who proved they were very talented piano artists that orchestrated our guests into a match-of-melodies and sing-a-longs as they tickled the ivory of their Baby Grand Pianos, both facing each other.   Overall, it was a fantastic evening had by all who attended and a lot of people committed that night to attending next year!  I have received numerous emails and texts throughout the week from folks that all stated they had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the show.  We are absolutely all-in for conducting another event to make it our 4th Annual Dueling Pianos Show.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to have you at our community event and know that some of our FT Drum neighbors (USO and 10th Mountain Division) in attendance will be reaching out to you to schedule other fundraisers.

Take care and we’ll see you next year.

A Year in Review

It’s a year later and we are still talking about how awesome the dueling pianos band was at our wedding. Usually people bring it up and say, your band was the best! From the moment they played their first note, everyone was up from their seats dancing the early evening away!

I can’t get over the depth and breadth of their songbook and their talent.

Thank you all!

You made my wedding day!

Dueling Pianos or Bust

Hi Jacob,

Upamanyu and I were so incredibly impressed by you and the other guys. We keep hearing how awesome the dueling pianos were from our friends and family. One person even told us they won’t go to another wedding without dueling pianos. Thank you so much for an amazing evening!!! We will certainly remember it for the rest of our lives.

Thank you!

Unbreakable

Jacob,

Great Conference Event

I just wanted to write in and tell you thank you for the help in our incredibly successful Conference Event at the Philadelphia Hard Rock. I had to coordinate the event with other co-sponsors and Jacob was more than helpful in getting everything put together with so many companies involved.

They had entertainment all night long and this was the best event of the entire conference.

I would recommend Cutting Edge Dueling pianos for any event. They play such a great range of music and they do a wonderful job getting everyone dancing and enjoying the fun. They didn’t take one break in the entire 4 hours they played and people were not ready for the night to end.

Dancing the Whole Night Away

Hi Jacob!

Thanks so much for performing at our wedding! All of the guests had a wonderful time and you kept everyone dancing the whole night.
Thanks again!

We’re International

Hey Jacob,

The show was awesome! They pulled a great crowd, especially for a Monday night, and even got internationals to sing along in English. It was a really fun time!

Thank you so much for working with us and we hope to work with you again in the future.

All the best,
Hannah


Off the Wall!

I can’t recommend the “Cutting Edge” dueling piano act highly enough for a fabulous night of corporate entertainment!

Our group of companies combined to do a major customer event at the ‘Hard Rock Café in Philadelphia, and we were extremely pleased with their performance!  Jacob, Jeff and Tom (dueling pianos and drums) put on a very engaging and entertaining show, and they had the crowd pulled in from the first note.

Jacob and the guys worked with us to get some good ‘hooks’ for our guests (nearly 350), and the band was very interactive with the crowd throughout the show!

They played an amazing assortment of songs, including some very ‘off-the-wall’ requests   . . . such as providing stellar back-up for an impromptu performance by an aviation consultant who sang a Frank Sinatra favorite!

“Cutting Edge” was a pleasure to work with from the initial planning stages, to the load-in and set-up on the stage at the ‘Hard Rock,’ and through the entire performance  . . .  they were awesome! We have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests since the show . . .  I recommend them highly!

Incredibly Professional and Beautiful

Jacob,

Cutting Edge Dueling Piano’s was our favorite vendor for our wedding! Every guest raved about their performance and how enjoyable they made the reception.  If you’re looking for live entertainment or a live band for your wedding or event, look no further! Jacob and his team will give you a high quality and customizable experience. In addition to the dueling pianos (which by the way look incredibly professional and beautiful…not those cheap shells that fit over a keyboard) Jacob whipped out his trumpet a few times, he included a drummer, lights, and DJ services! He also had no issue with learning two new songs for our first dance as husband and wife and a song for the father and daughter dance.  Between the ceremony and the reception, chaos was ensuing due to unexpected rain. Regardless, Jacob had a way about keeping the atmosphere calm and focused on what the day was really about…so add morale coach to this guy’s list of offerings! Jacob was also very responsive and timely with all the pre-coordination and was willing to work with me long distance since I live in New Mexico and the wedding was in Virginia.  In other words, he was very easy to work with and hassle-free. Needless to say, my husband and I have not a single regret in choosing Cutting Edge Dueling Piano’s to make our very special day memorable.

Many thanks to Jacob and his team,

Comfortably Numb

WOW, WOW and WOW is all we have to say about the entertainment we chose for our wedding!

We are 43 and getting married and wanted something different than a Band or a DJ. I Googled entertainment for wedding receptions in Naples, FL and they were the first to pop up. I clicked on the website and the rest is history!

I didn’t even look any further. Jacob Wolfson and Chris Combs on pianos and Tom Nixon were THE BEST decision we made! They are so full of life and entertaining, people of ALL ages were dancing the whole night! Jacob even introduced us and played music for our first dance.

I was told by several of our guests that this was the best wedding ever! The dueling pianos were something they had never seen and loved it!

Thank you Jacob, Mike and Tom! I will remember you for future events and Thank you for THE BEST NIGHT EVER!

Thank you soooo much again! It truly was the best night! I still don’t have feeling in some toes because I couldn’t get off the dance floor!

Trend Setters

Hi Jacob,

Wow! Our party with Jeff was wonderful!!!!!! Everyone had a blast and said it was the best party idea ever! Jeff was a doll and so fantastically talented. Everyone asked him for your business card. They all said we’ve started a trend around here, which is great because I’d love to enjoy the experience all over again!
Thank you again,

Dance! Or, Sit Back and Enjoy the Show!

Hey Jacob!
We can’t thank you guys enough for coming up and playing at our wedding. All of our guests were raving about how much fun they had and how incredible you played. Some didn’t know whether to dance along or just sit and enjoy the show.
We were really impressed that you learned those songs for us and played them so well. That truly meant a lot to us.
You guys brought the fun-loving, easy going but energetic vibe we were looking for in our wedding and we can’t rate you highly enough!
Thanks again,
Chris

A Worldly Event

Hi Jacob:

Our non-profit organization reached out to Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos to perform at our Annual Technical Forum, which hosts approximately 400 people from all over the world.  They were able to accommodate all of our needs, from playing light music during dinner that transitioned to a more lively set after our awards ceremony.  The music and singing were top-notch, they engaged the audience through singing and activities on stage, and more importantly, they appealed to our varied demographic of attendees in a professional environment.  Jacob Wolfson was polite and fast with all of our planning discussions and worked well with our budget for this event.  Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos would be excellent for any event and we will certainly use them again in the future.

An A for Effort, Style and Class

Hi Jacob,

The guys were grade-A amazing. They seem to know every song and have non-stop energy! When Jacob pulled out the trumpet to play along, I nearly fell out of my chair at his abilities. They created the energetic and exciting atmosphere we were looking for and had people singing along with them.

Well done!

We appreciate you making the drive down here to work with us and it was a pleasure meeting and working with you both. We hope we get the chance to work together again soon and will let you know of any other upcoming events so that you can escape the cold for sunny south Florida :)

Holiday Miracle Performance

We had Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos perform at our Company Christmas Party December 13, 2014.  I could not have been happier with the event.  Jacob Wolfson did a great job getting the crowd going.  He was very professional and really seemed to be enjoying performing for us.  Everyone loved it and it was fun to see the employees involved in the show.  They donated their tips from the evening to a charity of our choice which I think was a great touch.  If you are looking for a main event for your next party or gathering I highly recommend hiring Cutting Edge.  You will not be disappointed!

Professional, Engaging, Hilarious and Talented

Jacob and the crew at Cutting Edge made our wedding reception an incredible party. In planning our wedding, we were passed the day and age of cold chicken cutlets and broccoli, seventh grade dance DJs, and lame receptions and wanted to do something truly unique. We decided to create a dueling piano bar atmosphere centered on the show.

We couldn’t have asked for a better reception, and much of that was due to Jacob’s planning and execution. Jacob sent two awesome pianists and a drummer to DC to do our show and it was incredible. The guys were professional, engaging, hilarious, and talented. Jacob spent several months gathering “our songs” for the guys to play, including everything from our university fight songs, to Dolly Parton, to Jimmy Buffett. They made what I thought would be difficult, in setting up the pianos in a historic house with small passageways, into an easily executed mission. I didn’t worry about a thing in speaking with Cutting Edge–they worked out any details quickly and with ease.

If you’re looking for unique entertainment around which to center your wedding reception, corporate party, or other celebration, book Cutting Edge! Trust me, your guests will be talking about it for months.

$50,000 Raised for ALS

We recently had Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos as our entertainment for our 2nd Annual Mission Possible: A Cure for ALS Event. We had wonderful feedback from all of our guests. The show was absolutely amazing and far exceeded our expectations. I don’t think many of our guests had seen a dueling pianos show before, so they didn’t know what was going on at first..but then they really got into it! We had a wide age range in the room, but that didn’t stop Landon and Jacob from getting the entire crowd engaged. A great time was had by all. Thank you Jacob and Landon for being part of our event and helping us raise over $50,000 to help fund ALS Research and Awareness. We hope you will come back next year.

Such Gentlemen

Jacob,

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you providing the entertainment for our wedding. You far surpassed our expectations and the bride and groom had the best day of their lives, which is really what the goal was. We have only heard positive comments from our guests. As a matter of fact many have told us it was the best wedding reception they have every been to. You were so easy to work with from start to finish. All of you were such gentlemen and did everything you could to make it a special night. I would love to post a review for you if you would like. I’m not exactly sure how to go about that, but if you let me know I’ll be happy to do it. We hope to see you again in the UP.

Thank You,
Martha Carlyon


Reminded Me of a Movie

Jacob

If you are like me and reading all the reviews online because your are a naturally skeptical person then read no further- Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos will MAKE your wedding! I recently got married this past August 2014 and Jacob was the easiest one of my vendors to deal with! He always responded to my email within hours or at the very least the same day and always had answers to my 100 questions! He skyped with me and my husband before we signed the contract so we could make sure he was legit because we were so scared by all the horror stories couples have of getting scammed. I even sent him a detailed color coded itinerary for the day of my wedding and instead of being jaded by yet another neurotic bride he thanked me! I could not have been happier the day of my wedding. Jacob and his team followed the script to a T and not only made my reception a night that guest are still asking me “Where did you find these guys?” but also my ceremony something that reminded me of a movie- Just Picture trumpets serenading my guest as my bridal party walked down the aisle. Absolutely the best money I spent during ALL of my wedding expenses. Seriously check that box off on your to do list next to – DJ/Music/ Entertainment- YOU FOUND IT and Jacob will leave you without a care in the world on your wedding day because he will be on time, set up, and playing LIVE for your guest before you even arrive!!

Went Out With a Bang

Jacob,

I can’t tell you how much we appreciate the wonderful entertainment you provided for our wedding. You far surpassed our expectations and all of our family and friends had a great time. We had so many guests tell us it was the best wedding reception they have ever attended. Our feet were sore from dancing and we were hoarse from singing, but we couldn’t have asked for a better evening or a better group to bring out the best in our crowd than you. Your energy was contagious and you were all such gentlemen and easy to work with. Blake was our last child to get married and we sure went out with a bang by finding you. We can’t thank you enough and please make sure to share our message with you guys. You were Fabulous!

Thank You,

We Decided to Step Outside of Our Comfort Zone

Our tennis club has always had comedy night and beefsteak fundraisers. This year, instead, we decided to step outside of our comfort zone and hire Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos. We are thrilled that we did! Jacob and Steve are fantastic entertainers who kept the crowd excited and energized the entire night. People we never would have thought, were up dancing, singing and participating in fun games. They audience kept the requests coming all night long and Jacob and Steve belted them out. They are masters at any style of music and really seem to love what they do! Their enthusiasm and energy made the night a huge success and so many people asked us to please bring them back next year so they can bring friends with them for a great evening of entertainment. Thank you Jacob and Steve for making our fundraiser the best one yet!

Laugh-Out-Loud Funny

Dueling Piano’s was the best entertainment we have had at one of our corporate event dinners. Not only were they professional and accommodating of our requests, but their performance was upbeat, energetic, and laugh-out-loud funny. The audience participation was a big hit; everyone was singing, laughing and dancing along. Numerous guests commented on how wonderful the entertainment was and that they would love to see them back again next year.

Thank you for making this event such a success!

You Truly Know A Tremendous Amount Of Songs

Jacob

We had such a great time with you and Joe last Friday. You truly know a tremendous amount of songs and play them all with such energy. We had about 200 people consisting of many age groups and the amazing thing to me was you appealed to them all, modern music, rock, ‘70s ‘80s everything. We were looking for an act that would engage our whole club and you certainly did it and did it awesomely. What a great time!

Can’t wait to have you back!

High Octane Performance

Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos not only met our expectations, but far exceeded them. Their energy and high octane performance was a great addition to our annual event. Our dinner had over 200 community and business leaders. Jacob and his partner not only got them up on their feet, they got them involved in the performances. We’ve received exceptional feedback about the performance and have been encouraged by many to have them back next year. The feedback not only came from our dinner attendees, but even from the hotel staff. Everyone loved the performance. It was exactly what our event needed. We definitely plan to have them back next year. I highly recommend them! Thank you!

So Many Great Complements

Hope things are going well and that you made it home safely. We wanted to say thank you and that we had so many great complements on your behalf. We made a wonderful choice choosing you for our wedding.

Thank you so much.

We’re Getting Amazing Feedback

Words cannot describe the amazing feedback we are getting about you guys from the party! I cannot thank you and Joe enough for making Jim’s 40th so memorable. Not only are you and Joe extremely talented vocally but you are both hilarious. The way you dance, work the crowd, change the words to the songs and get people involved is amazing. Granted …. I picked a horrible night for a party with eagles playing but you kept everyone engaged! I also thank you for making Jim’s dreams come true & allowing him and his band mates to play along with you. It was truly a dream for him. You guys were so easygoing, it was awesome! We look forward to our next party so we can have you back!

You brought much fun and laughter to our lives after a horrible year and it’s truly appreciated.

We would recommend you to anyone and everyone we know! Please pass along to Joe and let him know that we plan on visiting Duels in February.

Many, many thanks and look forward to seeing you again.

This Really Beats a DJ

We want to thank you for making our daughter’s wedding so incredibly special!  The music was fantastic!  It made for such a fun and enjoyable event!  Your renditions of the requested music for the traditional first dances were excellent!  Getting the wedding party up and moving immediately really got the party started and your music kept everyone involved through the night. Our daughter did not have a lot of ideas about what music to play so taking the written requests from the guests was such fun and a great idea!  Our guests have told us that they had such a good time.  We would highly recommend your group to anyone that wants a really memorable event with live music from pianos, horn and drums!  It really beats a DJ!  Thanks so much!  Debra

A Packed Chambersburg Country Club

From The Chambersburg Country Club

Jacob Wolfson and his partner were spectacular on their pianos, trumpets and harmonicas. Playing a musical set largely comprised of audience requests, the group performed songs from over 50 years of music. The diverse crowd participated in “sing a long” style classic hits from the Beetles, Journey, & Elton John. The packed house also danced to new top 40 songs from Lady Gaga, Tyler Swift and Two Chains. The non-stop, no intermission show last for over two and half hours and not a sole in the crowd left early.

Very Happy with Jimmy and Collin on Saturday Night

Just want to let you know that we were very happy with Jimmy and Collin on Saturday night. They did an outstanding job!

Thanks again for making the arrangements. We’ll keep you in mind if we decide to do this again.

Take care,

Adam


You Read the Crowd So Well

YOU GUYS WERE AWESOME!!! I couldn’t believe you got our crew to dance (I’m going to say that was only about 10% alcohol and 90% you guys). I will forever treasure our renditions of “Single Ladies” and “California Love.”

You read the crowd so well, and guests have been e-mailing/texting/etc. all day to tell me how much fun “those Dueling Piano Guys” were. Also, Dot is adding you to the list of preferred vendors, and I know that Laurel was super impressed as well. I hope it generates some business for you all. Please use me as a reference anytime!

Please also let us know when you’ll be doing any public performances in the area, and we’ll definitely show! And actually, I’m an HR Director at Xerox, so I’m going to try to budget you in for a future event–the employees would love it. (But HR Lady doesn’t rap or slap asses. HR Lady is Serious, except when she’s dancing with the CFO.) 😉

Finally, can I get an address for you, and the names of your accomplices? I’d like to mail you something.

Thank you again for EVERYTHING!

Best,
Alyssa


My daughter Insisted Using The Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos

The wedding was to include about 400 of someone’s closest friends on a 100 acre farm outside of Knoxville, TN.    My daughter, Meredith insisted that we use the Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos for the entertainment, in spite of the fact they were going to travel about 600 miles from Maryland.   Since the Father of the Bride has no real purpose other than writing checks… the decision was made and it was a good one.   They were set up and practicing far in advance of the reception and the one word to describe the performance was FABULOUS.    The venue was stunning and the food was great…  but the single biggest compliment we heard from the guests was just how good the band was.   In addition to the pianos, they also used Drums, an electric banjo, and a Trumpet.   They played from approximately 8:00pm until about 11:15pm Non-Stop.  They never took a break and there were people on the dance floor the entire time.   So Meredith was right (as usual), and I would highly recommend them – particularly if you want to create a unique experience that most people have never had at a wedding.   Thanks to them, the guests now have a memory that will last a lifetime.

Thank you again for dealing with our crazy friends!!!

You Made Us Look Like “All-Stars”

I am writing to thank you for making us look like “All-Stars” at the Hillcrest Country Club Member Guest Tournament!  Already, I have members asking if we have future plans for another dueling piano night.

If I can be of any assistance in the form of a reference, I encourage you to have other clubs contact me at 402-489-7111.

I appreciate you staying after the performance and socializing with our members; they really enjoyed it.  I look forward to working with you again.

A Treat to Those Who Had Never Experienced Dueling Pianos

On April 13, 2013, your company was in attendance for our Annual Boys & Girls Club Fundraiser in Chambersburg, PA. I am writing on behalf of the Board to acknowledge and thank you for your performance. The Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos provided our event with an evening of truly outstanding entertainment and high level of professionalism while graciously accommodating our event’s need and scheduling. We appreciate your participation.

As a non-profit organization, our fundraisers are critical to the survival of our clubs and enable us to provide a positive learning environment for our kids. Our Annual Fundraiser, as the largest event of our calendar year, aims at generating these opportunities and bringing awareness to our organization. We were extremely pleased with our decision to have you perform. The reviews from our attendees exclaim nothing short of high remarks, referencing your dynamic personalities that complimented such great musical talents. Additionally, the performance was truly a treat to those who had never experienced dueling pianos and will be highly recommended in the future. We owe a large part of our success to you and your company.

From the Chambersburg/Shippensburg Boys & Girls Club – Thank you for a job well done.

Best Regards,

Emily Gorman

She Already Wanted Pianist Jacob Wolfson and His Ensemble

The “Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos” exceeded our expectations!

Our daughter knew 2 years before she became engaged that she wanted pianist Jacob Wolfson and his ensemble of a second piano and drummer to perform at her wedding!  We watched video on YouTube and found ourselves becoming very excited about the prospect of sharing the fun and music of the Dueling Pianos with our friends and family.

Jacob is both friendly and professional and doing business with him was a very pleasant experience.  He stayed in touch with us throughout the planning process and worked with our event planner to create an engaging atmosphere – I had no worries in this department.   Jacob was willing to direct the evening including introduction of the wedding party and announcements of key moments during the reception in addition to providing a wonderful party atmosphere.

This was my daughter’s day and Jacob made sure their part in it was just the way she wanted it.  She was front and center both to watch and to be involved in the interactive games and music.  Jacob eagerly helped score a special version of the song she chose for her first dance with her husband and it was a hit!  He was a good judge of the group (which ranged widely in age) and knew when to organize a “game” and when to play a special song.  Jacob also pulled out the stops when he took up his trumpet and played a soulful version of “It’s a Wonderful World” a la Louis Armstrong.

The Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos want your input in the music they play and take written requests throughout the evening.  Our guests thoroughly enjoyed being part of the process.

We knew we were hiring a great bunch of musicians, but I can honestly say that I never expected to have so much fun myself.  You will not find better entertainment for your event than the Cutting Edge Dueling Pianos.  My recommendation is a full five stars!  Thanks, Jacob (and Jimmy and Tom), for a wonderful evening.

Sincerely,

Debbie Snead

A Comedian and a Magician

Very accommodating! They agreed to work together with a comedian/magician to deliver the final show of our event, during what we call our “Celebration Dinner.”  They were very friendly, very talented, and the evening was a big success.  Actually, I think it will be remembered by our guests as one of the best entertainment evenings we have ever had.  thank you for making this evening  memorable.
