Keith Allen began to play piano at the age of 3 and after years of playing for family and friends at home, church and school functions, he found himself with a full time job playing piano at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in his hometown of Melbourne, Florida at the age of 16. In 1993 a new and exciting entertainment concept came to Orlando in the form of a club called Howl at the Moon Saloon. The dueling pianos concept itself was becoming increasingly popular all over the country. Dueling Pianos clubs began popping up in major cities across the land and in smaller markets as well. Keith saw this as an opportunity to help spread the concept and to get out and travel again. So, having a couple years of dueling experience under his belt, he struck out as one of the nation’s first free lance dueling pianos players. As a free lance player he has had the opportunity to play all over the United States and work with dozens of talented performers. In addition to performing at corporate and private events, Mr. Allen is currently the Entertainment Director of Blazin’ Pianos at DJ’s Dugout in Omaha and Bellevue and Brewsky’s in Lincoln, Nebraska, a show he has helped develop over the past 10 years.

Mike Mathews

Hometown:
Charlotte, NC

Mike Mathews was born in Little Rock, grew up in Fort Smith, AR and is the eldest of four sons born to a father who was a drummer and a mother who is a singer. He started playing drums at the ripe old age of four (poor mom) started gigging with brothers Larry and David at thirteen and at the age of fifteen, landed his first club gig on piano with legendary steel guitarist Bob White (Hank Thompson’s Brazos Valley Boys) and White’s Crossroads Band: that was 1973. Mike’s dad was the drummer with the band. He was introduced to the world of “sing-along” or dueling pianos by his already seasoned player - brother Dave in late 1988. Mike was hired by veteran piano player Ken Goodwin in 1990 as a sing-along piano player at O’Briens at “Bricktown” in Oklahoma City where he learned the show ropes. After six months with Goodwin, Mike relocated to Dallas, TX where he went to work at Alley Cats in the West End Market Place and received extensive show training from other seasoned players and innovators becoming Alley Cat’s entertainment manager along the way. After two challenging years in Dallas, Mathews went on to do a six year stint for Howl at the Moon in Cleveland, OH and in Columbus, OH as the entertainment manager After learning that Howl at the Moon would move in a different direction than the traditional show format, Mathews left the company and began working as a freelance player. Mike has been lending his coaching and mentoring abilities to help train newcomers to the craft and encouraging new talent to stay true to the industry’s standards and by continuing to hone their skills. Mike Mathews has performed for all of the major venues or with their players at one time or another including one of his favorites since 2002 Blazin’ Pianos at D J’s Dugout in Omaha, Nebraska. He resides with his wife Alison, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
