This venue is one of eleven locations in the US. Howl was founded in 1990 with the concept of a bar centered around dueling pianos. The stage has two baby grand pianos that are played by the best regional talent available. The show features two pianists at a time that play for an hour, then are joined by two more pianists for a couple four-way songs. The new pianists then take over for the next hour and the cycle of sing-along fun begins again. They also feature 'showtime' that includes all Howl employees and patrons in choreographed routines to well-known songs and jingles.
