With leading roles in over 25 major motion home movies, the only thing "shy" about Brian is his height. At almost 6' tall and [unintelligible] lbs, Brian has often been described on stage as Robin Williams meets Howie Mandel. Playing piano since he was just 2 years old and dueling pianos for the last 20 years, performing and entertaining have been his entire life. Literally. And with both ADD and OCD, you can watch him meticulously organize and alphabetize the requests on the piano and at the same time … “WANNA RIDE BIKES?!"

Keith Allen began to play piano at the age of 3 and after years of playing for family and friends at home, church and school functions, he found himself with a full time job playing piano at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in his hometown of Melbourne, Florida at the age of 16. In 1993 a new and exciting entertainment concept came to Orlando in the form of a club called Howl at the Moon Saloon. The dueling pianos concept itself was becoming increasingly popular all over the country. Dueling Pianos clubs began popping up in major cities across the land and in smaller markets as well. Keith saw this as an opportunity to help spread the concept and to get out and travel again. So, having a couple years of dueling experience under his belt, he struck out as one of the nation’s first free lance dueling pianos players. As a free lance player he has had the opportunity to play all over the United States and work with dozens of talented performers. In addition to performing at corporate and private events, Mr. Allen is currently the Entertainment Director and Owner of the Blazin’ Pianos Bar in Omaha (est. 2016) and provides talent for the Blazin' Pianos show at Brewsky’s in Lincoln, Nebraska. Keith Allen has been involved in the implementation and management of the Blazin' Pianos show in Nebraska since it's inception at DJ's Dugout in June of 2001.

Vince comes from a musical family -- his mother and father have been some of Cleveland's busiest professional musicians for decades! Vince grew up learning the piano right in his living room and began playing professionally in high school. Originally playing for weddings, in bands, and at nursing homes, Vince developed a penchant for learning a broad range of songs -- even (and sometimes especially) ones that weren't expected from one guy and one piano. During his pursuit of a degree in economics, a friend with big connections (okay, big connections for Cleveland) got him into a busy Saturday night at Howl at the Moon -- underage, with "X"s on his hands, the whole bit! The unpredictable, hilarious, wonderful display stuck with him, and later that year, he took the stage for his first dueling piano show. Over the next six years, his dueling piano career took him from that one terrific stage in Cleveland to bars across the country, to weddings, to college campus concerts, to private parties for organizations ranging from the U.S. military to Nike, and to more places that are just a blur at this point! Currently living in Los Angeles, Vince's pursuits will soon lead him overseas, with gigs in the Mediterranean and in Japan on the docket for 2016. Vince is always excited to come to Nebraska for good times, great crowds, and the terrific cast of entertainers who make every weekend a show to remember!
