Salt Lake City’s Dueling Piano Club!
No one could have imagined that the 18 year old kid who snuck into a Dueling Piano Show in Vegas would years later become one of the most versatile piano players in the business. From Elton John to Dr Dre, Whitney Houston to Rage Against the Machine he prides himself on being able to play and sing anything.

A native of Salt Lake City, Eric started on piano at the age of five, saxophone in elementary school then picked up the guitar in high school. Check out the custom modified double-neck guitar he has. There's a resin cast black widow spider in one of the headstocks.
In the 90s, Eric toured the U.S. and Canada with a variety of county, rock and funk bands. He runs a home recording studio, creating jingles for local radio stations. "I love all styles of music and enjoy the challenge of reproducing the original as closely as possible or dramatically changing a song's style," says Eric. In addition to the piano, guitar and sax, Eric also plays a mean set of spoons.

Rebecca de Azevedo
For Rebecca, performing comes naturally. As the daughter of Golden Globe Nominee Composer/Producer Lex de Azevedo, she is a fourth-generation musical entertainer and has been entertaining audiences for as long as she can remember. Rebecca began piano lessons at age seven, recorded her first studio backup vocals at age ten, performed in/accompanied and directed numerous church choirs, and spent five years as the keyboardist and lead singer of a local cover band. Rebecca hijacked the stage at a piano bar one night in 2009...and was promptly offered a job. After years as a dueling piano player, she can't imagine doing anything else on the weekends!
