The Eighty Eights Show FAQs

Where do you usually play?
The Eighty Eights Show is your premier traveling dueling piano company in Dallas, Addison, Fort Worth, Plano, Arlington, and the surrounding areas. We have it all in the name – traveling means we come to you and your event! You simply can’t beat the convenience of having your entertainment come to you, instead of the other way around.
Do you know every song?
We might not know every song which has ever been sung – but it sure seems like it sometimes! We are your human jukeboxes, meaning, we play what you want to hear right when you want to hear it. No more waiting and wishing, just shout it out or write it on one of our request slips. Half the fun of traveling dueling pianos is the knowledge of the talented players!
Can you play ___ (or, can you NOT play ___)?
If you have an obscure song that you desperately want to hear (or one that you definitely do NOT want to hear) then just let us know ahead of time, we can dodge the songs you hate and learn the songs you love. Because a dueling piano show is all about you, your events, and your guests.
What should we expect?
You can expect a loud, lively, fun, and creative time for your party when you hire traveling dueling pianos in Dallas, Addison, Fort Worth and beyond. Because we aren’t just the music, we are an interactive and engaging show that goes beyond simply music.
We can’t tell you exactly what to expect every time, as every show is unique, depending on the requests, guests, and style of the event – but we can tell you that the uniqueness of traveling dueling pianos makes it all the more exciting. That’s why so many come back to us again and again!
What is your cancellation policy?
As a smaller company, we are able to work with you instead of against you. We also work hard to be flexible and create less stress (never more) before your big event. Additionally, our contracts are each individually-made, and therefore can be crafted to fit your needs.
Please contact us to learn more about pricing, our cancellation policies, deposits and more.
What do you bring? Do I need to bring anything?
When you hire any pianos to go, they should bring everything needed for the perfect traveling dueling piano show. However, if you are having an event in a unique location, such as outdoors, and additional materials are needed, we will discuss and decide on the best forward action upon our signing meeting or via our regular correspondence. There won’t be any surprises the day of – except what songs we play next, of course!
Will you be the one playing at our event? Who else?
Exactly who you’ve been talking to is exactly who you’ll get!
The Eighty Eights Show doesn’t hire just anybody, and we don’t have a huge group to randomly assign from. Instead, we focus on our core team who perform all of our shows. This means the people you see in our videos are the people you’ll get!
We want our team to be used to working together and to have great flow so that your event will be the very best it can be. Traveling dueling pianos isn’t just about throwing two or three people on a stage who can play and sing – it’s about the dynamics and fun that they create with one another and with your guests.
How much time do you need for set up?
This is actually a variable question, as it depends on the location you have chosen and the venue – but never fear, all the logistics will be worked out well before the day of your event! All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show – we’ll do the rest.
Our venue requires ___, do you have that?
Some venues have unique needs or requirements, make sure you let us know any restrictions or requirements your venue has as soon as you learn of them. Of course, with over 25 years of experience and traveling throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we know the requirements of many venues, but there are always new places to go and new things to learn. Please let us know ahead of time so we can make your dueling pianos party run seamlessly.
If you have any additional questions or want to learn more about our pricing, policies, team or requirements, feel free to contact us. We love what we do, and we know you will too!
