About the Flying Ivories

In fall 2001, Brad Alexander launched the first ever Dueling Piano show in NYC. Every Friday and Saturday night, in the basement of O’Flaherty’s Ale House on Manhattan’s Restaurant Row, Brad and a small group of piano players faced off on two electric pianos for a four-hour sing-along with an audience that grew from 10 to far beyond legal capacity.

From there the show moved through several incarnations and locales over the course of a decade and eventually landed back in NYC, where Brad and fellow performer James Barr formed the Flying Ivories. Now with a rotating roster of 30 performers, the Flying Ivories play Wednesday through Saturday night at Bar Nine in Hell’s Kitchen and at private events and bar shows throughout the northeast.

A Dueling Piano show is an all-request, rock and roll sing-along that blends music, comedy, and improvisation to create a totally interactive experience for any type of event. No two shows are ever the same, because the crowd decides the set list. Write down your song on a request slip, put it on the piano, and they’ll play it. If you’re celebrating a birthday, a bachelorette party, a retirement, an office party, an anniversary, or even a wedding, you’ll be invited to the stage for some friendly fun.
