Lonny The Piano Entertainer

Examples of different styles of piano entertainers and how they perform their gigs:

"Instrumental only": the professional piano/keyboard player plays strictly instrumental music, which is usually classical, semi-classical, or "easy listening"; this type of piano entertainment is often found in hotel lobby lounges or "fine dining" restaurants.

"Only the musician sings": the professional piano/keyboard player sings to his/her accompaniment, usually on microphone."

"Sing-along": patrons surrounding the piano/keyboard sing as a group, usually without any microphones, often preferring "standards" and "show tunes."

"Dueling pianos": usually on stage with two grand pianos, each played by a professional player who sings and entertains."

"Open mic": individual patrons sing (on microphone) to the accompaniment of the professional musician; in some ways, this type of piano bar is like karaoke, except that the music is live and dynamic."
