Piano Fondue Dueling Pianos is coming back to Kilkarney Hills in River Falls March 9 for a

benefit show for FORWARD: The River Falls Public Schools Education Foundation.

In case you missed last year's event, here's how Piano Fondue works: This high-energy show

starts with two baby grand pianos. That's it. Just two pianos and their two rocking entertainers. If

you think that sounds strange, you're right, it's pretty unique. Now listen up, because this is the

kicker. These folks can play anything. You hear me? Anything!

You want Metallica? You got it. You want Jay-Z? You got it. Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber? Yes, they will reluctantly play that too! Johnny Cash, Journey, Beatles, Maroon 5, Coldplay—you name it, it's all on the pianos, and they'll be singing, too.

You have an important role to play in all of this. Don't worry, it's simple. You just need to keep those requests coming all night long. The pianos are hungry for requests and the tip jars are hungry for cash. Keep in mind, every dollar goes straight to the education foundation to support

new creative learning programs. Believe me, you don't want them to run out of requests, because they may be tempted to play some Air Supply or Celine Dion just to punish you!

Throughout the show there will be the opportunity to stop certain songs by coughing up more than the original request amount. Remember though, the original song can always come back by someone out-bidding you! The thing to remember as you're joining in the fun is that every dollar brought up to the pianos during the show is given straight to the cause, so tip often, tip a lot, and don't get too upset if your song gets stopped—it's all for a great cause, and you're the one making it all possible. Sing along, clap your hands, and get up and dance if you feel so moved. It's a party unlike anything you've seen before, so get some friends together and plan to head to Kilkarney Hills.
