The Sweet Sound of Success – Dueling Music and Fundraising

Make Money with Music

Picture this: a room filled with laughter, cheers, and the sweet sounds of music. That’s what happens when you mix Dueling Pianos and fundraising together. It’s like a match made in donation heaven. Dueling Pianos disarms everyone by getting your crowd singing along, interacting with the guests, and creating laughter with bits so the focus isn’t on having to ASK for money. It’s on having fun while money is being raised.

If you’ve ever been to a Dueling Piano show you will see that part of the allure is that “Duelers” can pretty much play ANYTHING. So throughout the night the audience makes requests that they send up to stage with money attached to get higher in the pecking order of their request being played sooner. Now imagine, all those request dollars are going to your charity. Your audience will be donating and not even feel a pinch.

And let’s not forget that hiring LIVE music shows your donors that you are really serious about the cause you support, and that is why you have put so much effort into finding a band and organizing a grand event. Not only will your guests have a blast, but incorporating music into your fundraising strategy can also create national awareness and make school fundraisers more fun. So let’s turn up the fun in fundraising and rock those donations!

Once you’ve chosen the entertainment that resonates with your diverse group of guests, don’t forget to decorate the venue, your social media, and even your print media to match the theme and vibe of the event.

 Get creative and think outside the box! We had a client once use our Dueling Pianos dressed up “Yellowstone” style and asked our piano players to rock nothing but nineties country music. It was held at a beautiful barn and raised money for a horse rescue in Wyoming. 

By personalizing your event, you’ll not only create a memorable experience for your guests, but you’ll also spread that national awareness as fast as Taylor Swift dating news. So let’s get the party started and dance to your tune!

The Encore – Appreciating Your Guests

So, the party’s over, the music or comedy has stopped, and your guests are starting to make their way home. But before they go, it’s time to show them some appreciation for their support and generosity. Get ready to give them the ultimate encore, the grand finale of gratitude! 

Thank your guests from the bottom of your heart for their contributions, whether big or small. And don’t forget to spread that national awareness by publicly recognizing their efforts. 

Give them a standing ovation, a virtual round of applause, or even a little dance to show how much you appreciate them. 

After all, they’re the true rock stars of the event!
