Talk About Getting Your 2-for-1!

“Talk about getting your 2-for-1! How does a Night Out where the venue has two completely different shows going on simultaneously sound to you? Pianos is just that, and it serves up decent pub grub with stiff drinks to boot. Come get your fix for live music of all shapes and sizes and genres, Pianos loves them all. From pop to rock to funk to disco to dance-n-shake-your-money-maker groups and DJs, you are sure to leave here with good memories and maybe a few new dance moves.” – Night Out

Twi the Humble Feather and Fredrik played Pianos

“Comprising of three acoustic guitarists who all play and sing, often identical or nearly identical parts, the band revels in a cerebral kind of sweet and silly; like a reincarnation of whistles blowing out of a school bus, only here fingers leap in unison like ballerinas and quick gasps of breath make way for a trail of some very important monosyllabic sounds.” – Hooves on the Turf
