"Spike, I just wanted you to know how much fun myself and everyone else had at the conference in January. I have been going for a lot of years and can not remember a better time.
You had everyone in the place up singing and dancing! It was great fun.
I know that all of our agents really enjoyed it. Several commented that were the best entertainment we have ever had in Salina! You may have only been one half of dueling pianos, but it was more exciting and rocking than any full dueling pianos act I've ever seen!
It was an incredible performance and greatly diversified in the styles and music selection. Your suggestion of a 60 min show followed by the 30 min. of interactive DJ hits, then you finishing up the last half hour with your remarkable ability to sing and sound like a band to dance us out the door! It was the perfect complement to the 2 plus hours of background iPod music you played before your performance started. It kept everything fresh and exciting from beginning to end.
We will have you back! Great Job! Marcia"

The Nation's Largest Food Redistributor
We are the largest redistribution center in the country with Mt. Sterling, IL being our headquarters. We have 1200+ drivers’ companywide with 300+ out of Mt. Sterling.
Spike put on an amazing show for our company’s very first annual safety banquet. The banquet was to honor our transportation company’s truck drivers for their excellent safety performance in 2012.
I provided Spike with a relatively small amount of information on the type of guys attending the event and he was able to cater to our needs perfectly. He loosened up the crowd by playing some classic favorites and personalized our event with some songs about driving and being away from home.
Our employees cannot stop talking about the event and keep asking what the date for next year is. Most of our drivers feel like it was the best event we’ve EVER held (and we bring in BIG NAME entertainment every other year such as Jeff Foxworthy, Gretchen Wilson, and this past year Montgomery Gentry for our Christmas Parties).
Spike can definitely hang with the big wigs of entertainment and doesn’t charge an arm and a leg! We hired Spike’s “Half of Dueling Pianos Show” for this event and we’ll also be looking for an opportunity to book his BIG SHOW dueling pianos” in the future as well!

OUR MULTI DIMENSIONAL APPROACH KEEPS IT FRESH!!!!
From years of experience I’ve found that too much of any one thing gets boring - I. E. playing mostly Billy Joel/ Elton John piano type songs for the entire event—SO having the ability to sound and feel like an entire band, several years ago I added that dimension to my usual dueling pianos and comedy show…( it was a huge success). – Then seeing over and over that later in ALL events the audience loosened up and was willing and ready to dance, sing and possibly get on stage; BUT they needed that undeniable and recognizable song (not just plucked out on piano, but the original) that made them jump up and start singing and dancing...… So I added incredibly interactive DJ hits to the show and it took the whole event to another level. That is MULTI DIMENSIONAL and FRESH!
Typically bands are not interactive and play just a few of the songs people really want to hear. Magicians are fun for 30 minutes, but then typically get boring. Vegas nights are also fun but it gets old. I'm sure you see the trend here.
All other forms of entertainment are 1 dimensional. NOT a Half of Dueling Pianos Show!
With Half of Dueling Pianos you get all request dueling pianos and comedy / a kickin’ dance band / and highly interactive DJ hits ---- ALL IN ONE!!! -- -it's entertaining and fresh from beginning to end.
