Michael and Amy’s music & clean comedy dueling pianos show is an award winning “feel-good-fun-entertainment-experience” for audiences of all ages. Audience members consistently describe Michael and Amy’s show as, “Unexpected”, “Hysterical”, “Incredible Talent”, and “SO MUCH FUN!” One moment you’re singing at the top of your lungs, the next doubled over in laughter, and then… breathless. Always fun. Always exciting. Completely entertaining.
