Featuring the talents of entertainers with decades of professional touring experience, Piano Fondue Dueling Pianos has delighted audiences of all types all across the country. From performing arts centers and corporate functions to wedding receptions and nightclubs, Piano Fondue brings dueling pianos with class and style!
With the onset of autumn, the mood in the Piano Fondue office turns toward holiday parties. From November to February, we’re rocking the nights away at various spots all over the Midwest for coworkers to shake off those wintertime chills and cut loose with our all-request, sing-along, dance-along rock and roll pianos party.
Your employees battle through the year day in and day out, and what better way to show your appreciation than with an all-out rockin’ fun-fest.
Piano Fondue is a full-production, traveling dueling pianos show. We are fully mobile, providing the pianos, light show, sound system, technicians, and two top-notch, rockin’ entertainers.
When you contact Piano Fondue, either through our web portal (here) or by phone (608.445.1711), our staff personally walks you through the booking process. With well over a hundred corporate shows under our belts, we can help you design the ideal night out for your employees while avoiding some of the common pitfalls found while scheduling an event that is first and foremost supposed to be about fun and team-building.
I think Sue from TailorMade Products sums it up nicely –
The question was asked, “how are you going to top this one?”
My reply, “I don’t think I will.”
I definitely would recommend Piano Fondue for any employee party function.
It’s unique, entertaining, and interactive!
Thanks, Sue. I hope everyone has a wonderful fall and winter, and I hope to see you soon at a Piano Fondue party!

A wedding is a magical day in the lives of so many individuals, and Piano Fondue gets to play quite a few of them. We feel so honored to be included in these incredible touchstone moments.
A wedding reception is a memorable event, but there is just so much to take in – consider this while planning your night. What are your guests going to remember? Think back on receptions you’ve been to – what do you remember? My guess is it’s the big two – venue and entertainment. Piano Fondue brings a unique experience that your guests are sure to look back upon fondly years and years from now.
Piano Fondue is a full-production show – we bring all the sound and lighting equipment we’re going to need. We’ll get there well in advance of your guests’ arrival, and we will have everything perfect by the time the first person walks through the door. But that’s just the beginning of what full-production means. Our sound and lighting technicians are on site for the entirety of your night as your point-of-contact for anything you need. Our musicians and DJs are there to emcee the whole event. We provide background music for your cocktails and dinner (recorded music by default, but live piano music is available). And then the show starts!
Most nights begin with a first dance – something special to the couple. Is it an obscure song from your first date or is it your favorite song of today? Whatever it is – we will learn it for you and perform a live version that will start the dancing off in inimitable style! After we invite all of your guests to the floor the requests start pouring in, and the night takes off. We usually save Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” for the end, because something special seems to occur every time (surprisingly without any suggestion from us at all!). People flock to the dancefloor and form a giant ring around the wedding couple, singing along at the tops of their voices. It’s the perfect end to a perfect night – OR – it’s the perfect time to shake things up with one of our DJs. By far, our most popular package for wedding receptions is our “Best of Both Worlds” Dueling+DJ party. Two hours of all-request dancing and singing along is followed seamlessly by two more hours of thumping DJ beats. The energy of this night is unparalleled, and the dance floor is filled all night long!
We love playing weddings. They make up about a third of our road shows with Piano Fondue (the other two-thirds being comprised of corporate events, fundraisers, and public concerts). It is a huge responsibility to make sure that these moments in the life of a new couple are special and memorable, and we do not take that lightly. Many of our clients choose to rate our services on the popular wedding planning website, WeddingWire. Take a look here at what they have thought of us, and then get in touch. We would love to talk about your special night and give you a quote. Either send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, give us a call at (608) 445-1711, or fill out our inquiry form.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read a bit about our wedding receptions. We look forward to hearing from you!

So, your favorite organization is hosting a fundraiser with Piano Fondue. What is your role? The audiences at Piano Fondue fundraisers are constantly stepping up to the plate and throwing some much-needed cash at myriad organizations, charities, and nonprofits all around Wisconsin and the Midwest. Now it’s your turn. Come ready to play along with enough cash to make you hurt a little bit (remember: it’s all going to the cause). You’ll be writing your requests down on the provided request slips and bringing them up to the pianos with your bribe–ahem, charitable contribution–along with it. The higher dollar donation, the sooner your song gets played.
Additionally, throughout the show there will be the opportunity to stop certain songs by coughing up more than the original request amount. Remember though, the original song can always come back by out-bidding YOU! The thing to remember as you’re joining in the fun is that EVERY DOLLAR brought up to the pianos during the show is given straight to the fundraising cause, so tip often, tip a lot, and don’t get too upset if your song gets stopped – it’s all for a great cause, and you’re the one making it all possible. Have fun, and we’ll see you at the next Piano Fondue fundraiser!
