MONNETTE TAKES PHILLY BY STORM

Jazz Queen - Monnette Sudler

Jazz Artist: Monnette Sudler

A jazz storm is brewing in Philadelphia and who else would you expect to be at the center? None other than Conquer Entertainment’s own Monnette Sudler!

A few weeks ago she put on a concert that still has the city talking. As a Philadelphia-based guitarist, she has all of the skills and protocols that a listener could hope for, but she also has a unique way of captivating her audience by how she travels the strings of her guitar. You’d come out of that concert thinking you’d have a bag full of souvenirs from all the places she took you to on that proverbial jazz cruise.

In her recent Jazz Bridge “Real Book” concert, she showcased why Conquer is so proud to sponsor her as one of our premiere Jazz artists. With Danny Monaghan on drums, Aaron Graves on piano, Cedrick Napoleon doing some sweet bass guitar, and a duo of ensemble members: Diane Monroe – Violinist and Gloria Galante – Harpist, the night was a plethora of talent and instruments that fed the hungry Jazz-craving crowd!

Monnette wows the crowd

Even with its complexity, the auditorial effect consisted of Graves’ growling clusters from the ebony and ivory keys of the piano, the rushing jazz rhythms from Danny’s drums, the all out attack of R&B riffs and splashes from Cedrick’s bass guitar and all along Diane, Gloria, and of course, Monnette taking us to town on strings. Wow ladies, way to bring it home!

All of the compositions came from Monnette and Conquer Entertainment couldn’t be more proud. We’re so happy for Philly and for you because you can click the link below to get more of her music and IF, you weren’t able to attend, why not support her talent by getting a download today?

DUELING PIANO BARS – A PART OF THE SHOW

 

So what exactly is Dueling Piano? Well I’m sure you’ve seen those awesome scenes in movies; two people sitting at separate pianos, jamming away at the keys to see who can play better and faster. As far back as the 1890’s, ragtime piano players would literally duel in front of a crow to prove themselves the better pianist.

In 1933 the first official Dueling Piano bar was opened in New Orleans, Pat O’Brien’s Bar, still open today! From there the Dueling Piano became an actual show where two piano players take turns singing songs requested by the audience, by writing them down on napkins.

 

 

Today Dueling Pianos are a fun, high energy show with emphasis on audience participation; performing songs across all genres. A show really unlike any other!

Conquer Artist Missy Lynn is an insanely talented musician who performs each week at dueling Piano Bar “Keys On Main” in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

 

At Keys on Main, we entertain with a live, all request dueling piano show. No set lists, no rehearsal, just 2 performers & 2 pianos   taking what the audience requests. With each request the audience can decide what they would like to tip the performers and the highest tipping songs get played first. If there is a song that a table or members of the audience do not like, they can stop that song by outbidding its original tip by one dollar. This is the true nature of the “dueling” the audience competing to get their songs played first.

Dueling Piano Bars provide a unique and more interactive form of entertainment than music joints these days, and with more than 200 around the country, there is lots of opportunity to check it out. So next time you and the buddies need something to do. . . Well you know what to look out for!
