There are so many talented people out there who go unrecognized for their blood, sweat, and tears, and it's a shame. I am one of the lucky few who gets to do this every weekend. We, as dueling piano players, get to experience the highs of a great performance, the close bonds of friendships forged on the road, and the appre
