It will be interesting to see how this turns out, particularly since the format on display every Saturday (three-hour show starting at 9 p.m.) is a new one to Rome’s growing scene of varied live entertainment and of the “dueling pianos” format. Two baby grands, two pianists, double the joking around and audience participation?
The best thing about this is to see experimentation — trying new things — being attempted to liven up the local scene. Jay Shell, the 333 operator (and of the Brewhouse as well) has been particularly venturesome in this regard.
It is interesting to consider what other business owners along Broad Street might next attempt to drum up crowds. There’s already a growing variety, but there is plenty of room for more — folk, blues, jazz, waiters who sing opera, strolling violinists? Man and woman does not live by karaoke and trivia alone.
