Duelling Piano’s strike a cord at curling rink

The musical group Dueling Piano’s played to a full house at the Barriere Curling Rink on Saturday, Nov. 20.

“The evening was inspired by our own local music promoter Charlie Kibble,” reported Curling Rink rep Brian Bondar.

Bondar tells that five days prior to the event, the grocery supply chain collapsed due to the road closures across the province.

“Fortunately, there was ample planning, plus a few favors requested to allow the meal event to occur as scheduled,”said Bondar, “All of the concert guests were very appreciative of the professionally served meal, and many were pleased to have a local event they could get dressed up for and enjoy an evening of entertainment.”

The catered meal consisted of bacon yam bites, and caprese skewers, followed with a poppy seed dressing on a mixed salad. The main meal was a choice of Chicken Cordon Bleu or St. Louis Style Ribs with carrots, sautéed red pepper and Greek potato. The meal was catered by the Curling Rink, and was completed with a delicious dessert featuring an amazing Donut Bar prepared by Barriere Lakes Bakes Creations.

The group Dueling Piano’s provided the entertainment with lively music that fully engaged the audience.

“The two piano players played two hours of known music favourites,” reported Bondar, “The crowd was also encouraged to request their own personal favourites. Some of those songs included: Paradise By The Dashboard Light by Meatloaf, Crocodile Rock by Elton John, Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen, Old Time Rock n’ Roll from Bob Segar, Mr. Bojangles by Jerry Jeff Walker, and others.”

The Curling Rink and Charlie Kibble already have plans in the works for two more community events scheduled to place in January and February.

The next event will be a comedy act with appies in January, and the February event will feature country music.

“For the local Bingo players there will be a Christmas Bingo on Sunday, Dec. 12,” added Bondar, “We are expecting a full house.”
