We received many positive remarks and compliments, so I know our staff had a great time! You and Cal played so many of our requests, and you kept a high energy level throughout the night, which kept our crowd involved and interested. You and Cal are extremely talented! We were very impressed by your musical abilities and the amount of songs you know.

Just a quick note to say thanks being a part of the HealthEast event! Everybody had a blast and I appreciate your help in making this a success. I hope to work with you again on future events.

Thank you!


- Jody Petrich, HealthEast

The River Rats were a lot of fun and we've received several good reviews on their performance Friday evening.

- Twin City Fan & Blower

Thank you so much for the amazing entertainment at our event. It was a success and heard nothing but great comments about the River Rats!

Thanks again and hope to see you again next year!

Reception September 16th, 2017

I am fortunate to have worked with Jim Steinworth to coordinate two appearances at GMAC-RFC within the last year. The first event was a holiday party for an audience of approximately 300 people; their musical talents, interactive comedy, and professionalism engaged the entire audience.

The second event was a winter party for the Human Resources group and their guests (approximately 60 people); again, they performed another great show for us that our associates and guests are still talking about. In fact, no one expected so much fun at a company function.

Considering their versatility and adaptability to work with small and large groups during different seasons, I would highly recommend them.

Talk around the building these last couple days has been about Saturday night. All had a great time and enjoyed their evening!
Thanks again for the entertainment!!

- M Spofford @ Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative

These Two were Over the top.
The River Rats were very professional, that being said they performed for the crowd and everyone from older to younger enjoyed them. we will for sure have them back.
Way to go River Rats, you guys Rocked!

- Scott Magnuson

Thank you very much for the amazing show and helping us with our fundraiser.
We had a great crowd that raised money for our emergency scholorship fund.
Let's talk soon about a date for nest year.

- Stacie Penn

You have been amazing and I appreciate how quickly you get back to me with answers. It is so helpful when planning an event.


Great, great show !!! Thank you !!!

Floyd Valley Hospital hosted the River Rats Dueling Pianos for our annual employee banquet. Having only seen their ‘bar’ version (and this is a very conservative group) initially I was a little nervous. I must tell you that they were not good, they were FABULOUS!!!! Jim told me that they do a lot of corporate gigs and it would be family friendly. They really got the crowd involved and their music was great! Truly one of our best shows ever! Thanks for providing such wonderful entertainment.

Thank you again for playing at our wedding in Biwabik Minnesota. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed your entertainment and were quick to express their appreciation for “not another boring wedding reception”! We were very happy with the service provided and your ability to “work” the crowd. Thank you!

They were working hard last night. Heck of a show. Highly recommended.

- G Svendahl

On Behalf of the Brookings Municipal Utilities/Swiftel and our EFP Committee, I wanted to thank you for the Wonderful performance you gave us.

I for one have never laughed so hard or had so much fun listening to the piano. I was very impressed how you could play just about any song on the fly, especially that Lady Gaga song and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

So much fun!

Exceeded my expectations!!

- Joan Olson March 4th, 2017 50th Birthday Party

We purchased tickets for your show last night because we love pianists, and dueling pianists was an added bonus. We were amazed at your abilities on those two beautiful pianos. You two are very talented.

- Larry and Vivian

I enjoyed your show. Very entertaining. You are both amazing musicians and performers. Hats off to you both.

- Bob Schlief

We got a lot good comments last night. You guys did a good job, thank you!

- Tony, Waterloo IA

Fun for everyone!
River Rats put on a great show for us! It was work friendly and still a lot of fun.
Several of my coworkers have commented that it was the best holiday party we’ve had in recent years.
Great job!

Positive comments from everyone that attended. They engaged the crowd and had fun with them. Thank you for a wonderful experience and night

- Kris Brandt : Wolsey Fire Dept. Fundraiser

I want to thank you again for your entertainment on Friday night. Everyone really enjoyed listening to the music and singing and dancing along!

We are very appreciative of your service!

- Madeleine Reesnes, Marketing Specialist

We are still smiling from such a great evening last Saturday. What a show! You had us engaged and singing along with our favorite songs. You gave us a time of fellowship, but it also brought in enough people to support our budget needs which is wonderful. Music truly is a gift of the soul. Thank you.

River Rats were a huge hit!
I hired the River Rats Dueling Pianos for our company Christmas party and everyone had a great time!! So many people came up to me on Monday morning after the party and raved about how much fun it was. Even the boss wonders how I'm gonna top this for next year. Thank you River Rats and Jim for making the night a great success and also for the constant communication to ensure everything went so smooth!

River Rats Dueling Pianos
Rating: 5 out of 5

We hired the River Rats for an ambulance fundraiser, and we were very pleased with their performance. It's been nearly a week since they were here, and people are still raving about how much fun they had. We had a special tribute planned for some very special ladies from our town, and they were more than willing to include it into their performance. If we decide to host dueling pianos again, River Rats will definitely be getting a call.
