Dave and Ted have been acting crazy together for over twelve years and perform a full-bodied range of music and genres guaranteed to entertain even the most diverse audience.

“They’re hysterical. But the way they can play is something extraordinary in itself.”  —Tyler S.

The show begins at 8:00 p.m. and the doors open at 7:00 p.m. The New York Mills Lions Club will have a full cash bar open for all attendees beginning at 7:00 and throughout the show, until 10:00 p.m.

You may have seen a dueling pianos show before, but Dave and Ted of Deuces Wild take this fun concept to a whole new level with their excellent improv, audience involvement, and unbeatable musical skills.

Dave has been performing the dueling piano concept for over 18 years and prides himself on being able to hold the attention of his audience from the moment he takes the stage till the last note of the encore. You won’t find a more polished entertainer with such a wide variety of skills.

Ted got his start in Deuces Wild by walking out of his day-job and demanding an audition. Although he hadn’t previously played in a dueling piano style show, his amazing showmanship and obvious ability to perform as a world class entertainer blew away the competition! Since then he has played thousands of dueling piano shows with performances all over the country.

Together, Dave & Ted defy all expectations of a dueling piano show and lead the way to an unforgettable experience. It’s a clap along, sing along musical comedy show where the audience is always a part of the action. And no one does it better than Dave & Ted, Deuces Wild.

This event is sponsored by KLN Family Brands, F&M Insurance Agency, New Horizons Realty, Twilight Jams Entertainment, Backwoods Woodfire, and Rob See Co.
