Downtown Plano staple Urban Rio Cantina & Grill is bringing a pop-up dueling piano bar to Plano at the Rooftop Event Spot.

Piano Bar in Plano

The new live music series at Rooftop Event Spot, will begin Friday, March 23, with recurring dates through Friday, June 1.

Guests are guaranteed an entertaining night of comedy, toasts (or roasts!) and live renditions of their favorite songs by musicians Ron Logan and Jimmy Clark, formerly of Dallas’ Alley Cats piano bar.

“We are so excited to try something new,” Nathan Shea, owner of Urban Rio, says. “Other than Pete’s, there really isn’t a dueling pianos option this far north. We think it will offer a really fun night out for people in the area.”

Urban Rio and Live Music

Since its opening in 2012, Urban Rio has positioned itself as a live music destination by hosting local, North Texas musicians at least four nights each week. The pop-up dueling pianos events will be an expansion on their existing live music offerings.

“When we opened, we wanted to focus on live music rather than a DJ,” Shea says. “As time went by, we kept having this idea come up to do dueling pianos shows. It took some time for everything to come together and to find the right musicians, but it’s finally here. Now, Rooftop will be the perfect spot to hold them!”
