It’s the last night at a dueling piano bar — and nobody knows it. Five performers, known as “duelers,” start their night as they always do: with lots of shots, a lot of problems, and a whole lot of music. But their nightly routine quickly crumbles into an epic crisis as the news circulates that the club’s money-hungry owner has cashed in on the Duelers’ years of hard work by selling the club.

Knowing that tonight will be their last as a musical unit, and that they will be replaced with a much more cost-effective mechanical bull, the group must attempt to put their differences aside to band together to get what they truly want … or will they fracture apart and never see each other again? It’s awfully hard to play together to the same rhythm when money, careers, friendship and love are on the line.

The entire cast featured in this rare gem of an indie musical are played by real-life duelers who present their jaw-dropping multi-instrumental mastery and an amazing variety of original music performed live for the rolling cameras.
