If you missed them last year, now’s your chance to see the amazing father-son duo of Eddie and Quincy Bullen – also known as the Dueling Pianos – who are back at Pier 21 for an encore performance!
A “Dueling Pianos” show is when piano players participate in a “duel” through music. Its history comes from the ragtime tradition when two players would take turns singing songs requested by the audience, competing to see who could play better and faster.
Based in Toronto with roots in Grenada, the Bullens engage their audience with an inspiring message of seeking and attaining excellence as they perform a variety of musical genres, including jazz and contemporary music. The duo’s musical arrangements are highlighted by interesting and amusing commentary about their own family relationship and their unique family history.
It’s going to be quite the show: two grand pianos will be positioned in the middle of Kenneth C. Rowe Hall with seating surrounding the performers, creating an intimate and engaging audience venue. The event is FREE. Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, the show is presented in English by Thunder Dome Sounds and is part of the TD Bank 2017 Black History Month series.
