The Dueling Hobbits
The Dueling Hobbits are two very short and somewhat chubby gentleman entertainers based in St Louis, MO. Nick and Shannon are both very accomplished musicians individually, both having bachelor degrees in music composition. Their careers before dueling pianos were very impressive. They had traversed the globe, playing anything and anywhere from directing Queen tribute bands in Chicago, performing at massive fundraisers in Ningbo, China, music directing great corporate bands with artists like Charles Glenn, and playing at amazing mega churches like Grace Church.
One day they were scouted by a St Louis based dueling piano bar, and the rest is history.
The Hobbits have trained and performed together since they started in dueling pianos. This is what makes them so incredibly unique and special. They cover a myriad of musical styles well, have two voices that blend beautifully together, possess great piano chops and orchestrate parts between two pianos with skill and ease.
The Hobbits are also very passionate about what great quality music and entertainment can bring to making your event seamless, memorable, and special. We're excited to work with you!
