Dueling Piano Kings

Dueling Piano Kings is a highly interactive all-request piano show “where your requests rule”. The duo were nominated for “Entertainer of the Year” for seven consecutive years at the 2024 Canadian Event Awards! They’ve won this award three times in the years 2019, 2022, and 2023! They were also the first winners ever of the 2017 Calgary Event Award for “Best Entertainer”.

Pat McGannon, one-half of Dueling Piano Kings, has over five decades of piano-playing experience. He has performed all over the world including events for Bill Clinton, Tom Hanks, and the late Glenn Frey of The Eagles. He’s performed with Dueling Piano Kings at the Scotiabank Saddledome for several Calgary Flames games, many Calgary Roughnecks Games, and four times at McMahon Stadium for a Calgary Stampeders game in front of over 25,000 people. He has performed all over North America, and Europe and is “big in Japan”!

Throw Elton John's piano skills, John Legend’s soulful vocals, and a 90s mixtape in a blender and you get Calgary-based artist/entertainer, Jesse Peters. He's performed all over the world, including stops in New York City, a six-city tour in China, and closer to home in Calgary, halftime shows at McMahon Stadium and the Scotiabank Saddledome. Signed to Sound of Pop publishing, Peters has secured song placements on shows like Global’s Family Law (2021), Syfy’s Bitten (2013), Showcase’s Continuum (2013), and CBC’s Arctic Air (2013).

Jesse Dollimont, performing on Friday July 12 & Saturday July 13,is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter from Treaty 7 Territory. She has been performing since she could speak - and her broad musical interests and endeavours have given her the opportunity to perform on stages and in studios across the continent. Jesse has been a featured performer at The Red Piano (Edmonton, AB) as well as Aussie Rules Piano Bar (Calgary, AB), and has been 'dueling' at the pianos now for over a decade. When she isn't performing, Jesse works in the Calgary area as a board certified music therapist. Jesse is passionate about the ways that music builds community and connects people, and her effervescent love of music and people is conveyed in every performance.

These piano players have a century of piano-playing experience between them, and can play any song you want to hear, from classic rock, and retro, to the latest Top 40 music! No performances are ever the same!
