Chicago Dueling Pianos showcases the best live musicians dueling away and cracking you up with their raucous comedy antics. Go ahead, request your favorite song, sing along, dance on stage, or just bounce up and down in your seat.

Chicago’s Dueling Pianists Jen Porter and John Jones have been raising money for local charities over the past five years.

The two singer-songwriters, Jen Porter and John Jones, combine passionate vocals and top notch piano styles with a repertoire that ranges from Cole Porter to Coldplay, Leonard Cohen to Green Day.

Growing up with parents who inspired people in the pews and around the campfire, Jen has stoked a fire in the bellies of thousands of fans with her irreverence, passion, and strong smoky voice. She spends most of her time performing as an international piano bar entertainer throughout the Caribbean and Europe, and entertaining around her hometown of Chicago, Jen has been steadily cutting original albums and building a following for her own music for almost 2 decades.
