Curious about the logistics of having dueling pianos at your event? Have questions about our wedding DJ service? We’ve put together our most common FAQs to help answer your questions. If your question isn’t listed here, contact us and we’ll send you an answer as soon as possible.
Dueling Pianos Frequently Asked Questions
Are your shows appropriate for all audiences?
Yes! Generally all of our shows are PG to PG-13. We can easily adapt to whatever your needs may be.
How long do your dueling pianos shows typically last?
We have packages for both two- and three-hour shows but we find that a two-hour show is usually the “sweet spot”.
How do I book a dueling pianos show?
The first step is to contact us to check availability for your requested date. We’ll get some details about your event and send you pricing. When you’re ready to book, we’ll email you a contract that you can sign electronically. Finally, you’ll pay a deposit of at least 50% to hold your event date.
How much space do you need for the pianos and equipment?
We need at least an 18’ X 10’ area.
Do we tip the piano players?
People tend to put money with their requests and in some ways the tipping is part of the show and adds to the fun! If you would not like us to receive tips during the live show, that can be arranged in advance. For Fundraisers we typically split any tips we get with the fundraiser!
Do you have any live dueling piano shows scheduled?
How do we set up the room? Do we need a dance floor?
Please don’t have a dance floor in front of us! We like the tables to be as close as comfortably possible which allows us to interact with the audience easier.
Wedding DJ Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to set up and tear down your equipment? Is this time included in your fee?
Setup time can depend on the services you’ve chosen, but typically it takes two hours. Tear down time is usually no more than one hour. Setup and tear down are not counted towards your total event time.
Can we create our own playlist?
Yes, you’re welcome to provide a playlist of songs you’d like to have played during your ceremony, cocktail hour and/or dinner if you’d like. For the dance you will receive a planning form that allows for your input of “must plays”, “suggestions” and “do not plays”.
Do you take song requests during the reception?
Yes, guests can request songs to be played if you wish. We do our best to honor all requests if we have the song and time allows. You can provide us with any guidelines on types of music or particular songs you don’t want to have played.
Can you help us choose music for our reception or wedding ceremony?
If you’re having trouble deciding on the right music, we’re happy to recommend songs that are appropriate for any part of your wedding. Check out our Spotify account to find playlists full of songs we recommend for every aspect of your wedding day.
Spotify Playlist: Top 100 Wedding DJ Songs
We also have curated playlists of processional and recessional songs, first dance songs, garter toss songs, bouquet toss songs, grand entrance songs, mother/son dance songs, father/daughter dance songs, and even cake cutting songs.
If people aren’t dancing, do you get them involved?
On the rare occasion that guests are shy, we know how to motivate the crowd and play music they’ll want to dance to.
Do you bring all of your equipment or do we need to provide anything?
We bring all of our own equipment to operate anything that has been booked and no additional equipment needs to be provided.
Will you need dinner provided for you and your staff?
Yes please! We are typically at a wedding for 9 or 10 hours and would greatly appreciate a meal if one is being served.
How many people will you have working at my wedding?
It fluctuates from wedding to wedding but no more than two. Often there may be two of us for the setup and tear down but usually for the event time there will only be one.
