Between them, pianists Robbie Peaple and Danny Mills have worked alongside Elton John and JLS, played for President Bill Clinton and shared the stage with Joss Stone. Now the pair are bringing their lively act to Brum: Duelling Pianos will shortly be opening their own place on Broad Street and ahead of that they are playing Alvar Bar at Hotel La Tour Birmingham.
Penelope, Alvar Bar’s resident baby grand piano, will be taking a night off on Friday 12 October as the guys and their instruments rock up for what promises to be a high-energy evening with great music, humour and audience participation.
The Duelling Pianos show is based entirely on audience requests so the evening is what you make it!
