The Barton Brothers


The Barton Brothers

Colorado's Dueling Piano Show

The Barton Brothers are a piano-centric songwriting and performance duo, drawing influences from their piano rock forefathers, from Billy Joel to Ben Folds, along with musical theater and Top 40. Jack and Dan are Colorado natives – classically trained pianists and childhood choir nerds who grew up sharing stereos, piano teachers, and bunk beds, developing a shared musical vocabulary from the start. This built-in chemistry is immediately apparent in their infectious, high-energy dueling piano show which honors the piano bar sing-along classics and puts an original spin on contemporary hits and 90's throwbacks.
