February 11th, 2017 - Saturday: Midwest Dueling Pianos - 

The Midwest Dueling Pianos packed the WOWSPACE in Wittenberg with their one of kind performance. It certainly was a good time and something that not many people in a small town get to experience, we had to turn many away due to limited space.  Adam and Kaleen had the audience laughing, singing and even got them out dancing. One highlight was Kaleen playing the cup song with paper cups from the pantry cupboard.  We hope to make this happen again at the WOWSPACE.
