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.
