Did you know that the ladies at Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans started the "dueling pianos" concept in 1937? Yes! The founders were female and bad to the bone. All Pianobars stand on the shoulders of these grand women.
Since the days of the original divas at Pat O'Brien's, which is still going strong, Pianobars have evolved and branched out into the world. Our sisterhood has multiplied globally! We are the unique minority in a male-dominated industry. You see, rock and roll came to the scene during those first years of the Pat O'Brien's diva teams. Subsequently, a group of very talented men and women started a club in 1986 called Dallas Alley Cats in Dallas, Texas. The concept became a viral sensation that is still going strong and continues to grow.
Over the years females have joined teams worldwide and bring an edge like no other. Some of us also write and perform original music. Some of us deftly work our own solo shows still using the "sing-along" concept as adapted from the dueling piano show model. It works; and women work it.
We have been united during this age of information and social media connection. We've shared stories, encouraged each other, learned from each other. We unite in a unique sisterhood.
We invite you to view our stories, bios, and contact info.
Our roster is a continuous work in progress and we're constantly learning about new ladies. We intend to include all of you and want to know your stories. Please go to the ROSTER FORM page and fill out the info!
