Piano Fight Club Lights Up BJC With Unique Set Filled With Firsts

If you’ve been to the Phyrst recently, you may haven taken in one of the fun and interactive shows from the dueling piano duo Piano Fight ClubThe duo is known for taking both popular classic and forgotten hits and putting their own ivory rendition on each song. The duo had a brief BJC set that got the crowd awake and involved with a unique sing-along first in the BJC.

The duo showed off its versatility with everything from a classic rock ballad in Queen’s “Somebody to Love” to the 2000s throwbacks from bands like Maroon 5, which we all know Penn Staters live for. The ivory ticklers even managed to include a song from the hit Disney film Moana with one of the main character Maui’s famous songs, “You’re Welcome.”

Once the crowd was warmed up to the Piano Fight Club’s style, they brought a unique first to THON. The duo performed their own rendition of Céine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from the famous 1997 film Titanic. The talented duo called for the entire BJC to sing along with the heartfelt ballad, and even proclaimed “I wanna see this on the news tomorrow morning THON!” and to no surprise the entire BJC joined in on singing the famous ballad.

The Piano Fight Club brought a brief but uplifting set in a challenging stretch during THON. It wasn’t quite the electricity we’ve come to known in love in the depths of the Phyrst, but it was still overall a good time.
