David has been performing the dueling piano concept for over 18 years and prides himself on being able to hold the attention of his audience from the moment he takes the stage till the last note of the encore. You won’t find a more polished entertainer with such a wide variety of skills.
Son of a miner from the northern woods of Minnesota, David Charles Eichholz is a versatile, self taught musician who plays the piano, guitar, saxophone, harmonica, trumpet and countless other instruments. David was also part of the “Pringles” Award winning band “City Pretty” as well as the band “Rave On!”. He was featured internationally on the Swedish television show ‘Christine’. He was then recruited by Little Ditty’s, Dueling Piano Bar at the Mall of America in Minnesota where he performed four nights each week for five years. David also recorded and produced the sound track to the “Prime Target” video game (50,000+ copies sold).
Ted got his start in Deuces Wild by walking out of his day-job and demanding an audition. Although he hadn’t previously played in a dueling piano style show, his amazing showmanship and obvious ability to perform as a world class entertainer blew away the competition! Since then he has played thousands of dueling piano shows with performances all over the country! When not on the road with DWDP, Ted spends his time as a producer of sold out shows, including the Billy Joel and Elton John tribute show “Eye 2 Eye,” and the ever popular annual “Rock n Roll Xmas Spectacular,” which he co-produces with former Jonny Lang guitarist Paul Diethelm.
Ted also spends time in the studio as jingle writer, recording artist, and producer of both his first CD “Gather Us In,” and his Rock and Roll Xmas CD, “Trim My Tree.” and “RRXS – Live at The Paramount” CD. He’s been an actor and a game show host! Whether it be in front of thousands of people opening for HBO’s Dennis Miller, or selling out theaters with Deuces Wild nationwide…Ted has consistently proven that he truly is a showman’s showman and musician’s musician!
