WeddingReviewed on April 21, 2018From Island Park, NY

From the moment I booked The Flying Ivories I had such an amazing feeling about them! James was so great in every way possible! He was very reliable, responded back to my emails and requests promptly, and was such a pleasure to work with! My husband And I absolutely love dueling pianos and thought it would be something so different and unique for our cocktail hour! Needless to say we were not disappointed!! James had kept in touch with our venue for setup and breakdown I didn't have to worry about a thing! They showed up on time and put on a amazing show!! If you're looking for an interactive, fun experience, I'd highly recommend The Flying Ivories for any event!!

Flying Ivories New York:

Hi Amber, Thank you so much for having us.. We had a blast! Looking forward to catching up with you both when you're next in NYC. Congrats again to you and Raymond. Best wishes, James.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 19, 2018From Chesterfield, NJ

We hired Flying Ivories last minute to add a little something extra to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Needless to say they exceeded our expectation! James responded to me immediately, was so kind and was so helpful and Ryan who performed at our wedding was willing to accommodate any special request and did an amazing job putting the personalized touches on our ceremony music! They were a welcoming force as our guests arrived, made our ceremony super special, and got our party started during cocktail hour! The guests raved about how great Ryan did and how much fun they had getting to request songs for him to play! We highly recommend them, they are AMAZING!

Flying Ivories New York:

Hi Krista, Thank you so much for having us as part of your big day! Wishing you and Kevin all the best for a long and happy marriage. Kind regards, James.

James and Nina were amazing!!!!! They made our event so much fun and the logistics seamless. They accommodated all of our ridiculous requests and were very pleasant to work with. Talented, funny, and entertaining. I hope to work with them again at another event!

I highly recommend The Flying Ivories to anyone planning a party or event. They played a non stop, high energy 3 hour set and had the dance floor packed from beginning to end. All of our guests absolutely loved the show. The guys are super friendly and fun to be around. Great party band, we had a blast! Definitely loved the addition of the drummer with the pianos. Thanks to James, Matt and Keith for a fun and memorable night we will definitely hire you again for future events.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 10, 2017From Short Hills, NJ

James promised and delivered, a fabulous 50th birthday celebration for my wife, 70 people for an Austin style dueling pianos, BBQ and it was a celebration to remember. The professionalism, ability to read the crowd, and the pace and temp of the evening was perfectly orchestrated. One of the better decisions I have made, these guys rock! Dr. David

Flying Ivories New York:

Thanks so much for having us David! Happy birthday to Shannon and hope to see you again soon. James

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 30, 2016From Glen Head, NY

We loved Steve, a true professional, he played beautifully and really made the atmosphere of our celebration wonderful! He's part of the family now! My guests and I were thoroughly impressed with the range of songs Steve played, from Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Baby Got Back, Billy Joel and Blurred Lines! Thank you for setting us up with Steve, he truly was delightful.

Community EventReviewed on October 6, 2019From Poughkeepsie, NY

I cannot recommend them MORE! James and Adam were so accommodating and talented. We hired them for our VIP event for our theater's fundraiser before our Gala performance with Gladys Knight and we had to literally kick people out to make it on time for curtain. I can't wait to book them again!

Flying Ivories New York:

Hi Donna, Thanks so much for having us - what a fun event and we're always grateful to be able to fundraise for such a fantastic cause. Looking forward to working with you again soon! Kind regards, James.

Community EventReviewed on December 7, 2018From Baltimore, MD

If you want to transform your party from drab to fab, hire Adam from Flying Ivories! Not only was he incredibly professional showing up 2 hours before the event dressed to impress with his adorable little piano in tow, but he put on a show that my guests are STILL talking about! He is an insanely talented performer who should be the entertainment focal point of every future party known to mankind.

Flying Ivories New York:

Hi Jennifer, So glad you had a great time with Adam - he's one of our best! Do please let us know if we can be of service in the future and in the meantime a very Happy New Year from the team at Flying Ivories. Kind regards, James.
