About Dueling Piano Kings
The duo won “Entertainers of the Year” for the entire country at the Canadian Event Industry Awards in September 2022 and March 2019, and they were the first winners ever of the 2017 Calgary Event Award for “Best Entertainer”!
Pat McGannon, one half of Dueling Piano Kings, has over five decades of piano-playing experience. He has performed all over the world including events for Bill Clinton, Tom Hanks and the late Glenn Frey of The Eagles.
He’s performed with Dueling Piano Kings at the Scotiabank Saddledome for several Calgary Flames game, Calgary Roughnecks Games, and four times at McMahon Stadium for a Calgary Stampeders game in front of over 25,000 people. He has performed all over North America, Europe and is “big in Japan”!
Basically throw Jamie Cullum’s piano acrobatics, Bruno Mars’ soul-pop sensibilities and a 90s rap mixtape in a blender and you get Calgary-based R&B/Hip Hop artist Jesse Peters.
“I’m an unapologetic fan of all things soulful,” says Peters, “soul music is connected to the real stuff of life: struggle, identity, being free to be yourself.”
Signed to Sound of Pop publishing, Peters has secured song placements on shows like Global’s Family Law (2021), Syfy’s Bitten (2013), Showcase’s Continuum (2013), and CBC’s Arctic Air (2013).
The duo just returned from the Grey Cup Festival in Regina where they played to a capacity crowd at Stamps House. These two piano players have almost a century of piano-playing experience, and can play any song you want to hear, from classic rock, retro, to the latest Top 40 music! No performances are ever the same!
