There are many Glendale restaurants and night spots to choose from when you want to enjoy good food and a good time, but visiting a piano bar is an option that will be fun for you and whoever you are with: family, friends or a date. There’s nothing like dueling pianos to get a crowed relaxed and inhibitions lowered! At a good piano bar, the musicians take requests, and they know how to play music the way people want to hear it.
History of this form of entertainment
The tradition of dueling pianos started in the late 1800’s in New Orleans during the age of ragtime music. Piano players in bars would “duel” with each other to see who could play faster, and the crowd would get way into it.
While the popularity of ragtime music faded, the fun of a piano bar did not. In the 1980’s the practice returned, but this time it featured contemporary pop music. For the most part these days, piano players don’t compete with one another but rather play songs together at pianos that are facing one another. Add in some crowd participation and a little alcohol, and you’ve got yourself a great time.
An evening at a piano bar is a way to bond with your fellow human beings through your favorite music. When you’ve decided that you want to have a fantastic time at a location that stands out among Glendale restaurants, call the Low Key Piano Bar at 480-355-1705.
