Variety Speakers River Rats “Dueling Piano’s”

The River Rats Dueling Pianos are the masters of interactive rock-n-roll comedy for any event. Corporate shows and private parties are not a side business for us; we specialize in bringing the fun anywhere!
Whether it’s a large trade show, corporate meeting, wedding reception, fundraiser, comedy club, or community event, we bring customized entertainment that your guests will never forget.
The River Rats Dueling Pianos are Jim Steinworth and Cal Spooner. We are the longest running dueling pianos act in Minnesota and the first team to bring dueling pianos to Las Vegas. Both come from years of rock-n-roll bands to bring a large repertoire of everyone’s favorite songs old and new. We are all about delivering as much fun as possible.
Ours is a request driven show that gets everyone involved in having too much fun. Your guests pick the songs, clap along, sing along, and become a part of their favorite music while we pound out the hits on grand pianos. A truly exciting, interactive experience.
We provide a family friendly ‘G’ Rated (not ‘PG’) performance and save the ‘blue’ material for bars. From soft dinner music to musical madness, we do it all. When we play, everyone has a great time!
We bring Steinworth Grand Pianos, sound, and lights anywhere people want to have fun. We do not substitute players to maintain a consistent quality show for all of our clients.

Client Feedback:


Thank you again for playing at our wedding in Biwabik Minnesota. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed your entertainment and were quick to express their appreciation for “not another boring wedding reception”! We were very happy with the service provided and your ability to “work” the crowd. Thank you!

Floyd Valley Hospital hosted the River Rats Dueling Pianos for our annual employee banquet. Having only seen their ‘bar’ version (and this is a very conservative group) initially I was a little nervous. I must tell you that they were not good, they were FABULOUS!!!! Jim told me that they do a lot of corporate gigs and it would be family friendly. They really got the crowd involved and their music was great! Truly one of our best shows ever! Thanks for providing such wonderful entertainment.

On Behalf of the Brookings Municipal Utilities/Swiftel and our EFP Committee, I wanted to thank you for the Wonderful performance you gave us.
