BILOXI, Miss. (May 1, 2018) – Beau Rivage Resort & Casino’s summer entertainment schedule will include the opening of Ivory’s Dueling Piano Bar on Memorial Day weekend. Locals and visitors to the Mississippi Gulf Coast will have a new entertainment option for high-energy live music and audience participation every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night starting May 24.
“We listened to our guests and wanted to enhance our nightlife experience this summer,” said Beau Rivage Vice President of Marketing Brandon Dardeau. “Ivory’s will be a great venue to hang out with friends, enjoy a few drinks and listen to great live music by some of the best piano players in the country.”
Led by two-time Guinness World Record Holder Tim Buie, two piano players will take the stage each night at 9 p.m. to play the hits and take song requests from the audience. At 45 minutes past each hour, lucky participants can have “15 Minutes of Fame” with an opportunity to sing onstage with the musicians.
The self-proclaimed “Ric Flair of Dueling Pianos,” Buie made his way into the Guinness Book of Records for non-stop marathon piano playing. His first world record was 61 hours and 3 minutes. He broke his own record one year later when he performed for 63 hours and 11 minutes. Buie will be joined onstage in a rotating cast of exceptionally talented musicians including Brad Heron, Nate Sangsland, Tim Georgeff and Laura Wiley, all recognized as top piano players in the business. With more than 6,000 songs in their repertoire, ranging from rock n’ roll to contemporary, classic rock to country and R&B to show tunes, these top national touring pros take great pride in entertaining and engaging audiences.
Ivory’s festive menu includes more than 30 craft beers, a selection of wines and aptly-named cocktails such as Sweet Caroline, Take it Easy, Family Tradition, I Will Survive, and Friends in Low Places. Beer pairings will also be offered. The Coast Seafood & Brew restaurant kitchen will close at 9 p.m. as the venue transitions to Ivory's Dueling Pianos.
From Billy Joel to Bob Seger, Ivory’s fast and funny piano players will perform plenty of crowd pleasers to encourage everyone to sing along and make it a night of unforgettable entertainment. Admission is free.
