#328 Dueling Piano Bar: Howl At The Moon

Posted by Tara Peterson on Mon, Mar 21, 2011


Howl at the Moon's piano players take the stage two at a time. The entertainers play for one hour and then yield the stage to two new players. At the changeover, all four piano players stay on stage for what is known as a "four-way."The four-way occurs at the end of each hour and lasts for two to three songs. This hourly encore allows the pianoplayers to incorporate additional instruments (drums, guitar, and saxophone) into the performance. The four-wayraises the energy of the room and provides a defined transition between the dueling piano show shifts.

Additionally, during every hour the Howl at the Moon entertainers engage in "Showtime." During this act, all Howl service employees join in and lead the audience through a choreographed routine to animated versions of popular tunes that include nostalgic TV shows and commercial jingles. The audience participation approaches 100% during Showtime and is enhanced by the high energy level of the live music.
