"Piano Man Bob and Happy Hour"
"...keys extraordinaire Piano Man Bob was rocking, jazzing, boogie woogieing and generally entertaining anyone who would listen. Blending the classic sound of a grand piano with various electronic looping and synthesizing machines, Bob can create a variety of sounds like multiple singers, drum backbeats, bass riffs and other cool effects. In addition, Bob takes requests and can pretty much do anything you can think up.

"Bob Duquesne, that excellent piano bar star, is another artist who should be performing here. Impresarios should monitor!"
Las Vegas Review Journal, Las Vegas, NV
"Has played at many clubs and night- spots around the country... is noted for including audiences in his shows and taking requests for numbers."

"Not Your Usual Lounge Act"
"Anyone who hears him will want to come back again and again ...surprises listeners."
Journal American, Bellevue, WA
"At the lake, Bob Duquesne is the pianist to catch. The engaging entertainer gets the audience involved because he loves requests and singalongs.
His very diverse repertoire includes show tunes, jazz, latin, classical, 50s, soft rock, blues and much more.
Duquesne has performed up and down the California coast at prestigious establishments such as Chasen's in West Hollywood and the La Costa Resort."
Nightwatch - Tahoe Truckee Review, Truckee, CA
It is not often that I have the opportunity nor the confidence to recommend who I consider to be an outstanding entertainer.
After auditioning Bob Duquesne, I had no hesitation on signing a three-month contract with him; and, if we were not such a seasonal resort, I would be delighted to have him on a yearly basis. In addition to his musical talents, I most appreciate his professional attitude in his dealings with me and the fact that he is one hundred percent dedicated to doing the best possible job for the house.
Even though Bob Duquesne works as a single, his musical presentation is so designed that the full and extensive sounds that he produces could certainly be equivalent to a duo or trio.

If your time with us at Grand Geneva was for you a record setting engagement, I need to tell you that it was also a record setting engagement for us. You are an outstanding performer with a great deal of talent, a marvelous personality, and a great scope of past experience to draw upon.
I don't know what new engagements await you or where the future is calling you but I know I speak for myself, and for Bill and Steve, when I say that you'll always be welcome at the Grand Geneva Resort.
With warmest personal regards,

Just a note to thank you for your share in making our stay at the Grand Geneva one of our more wonderful trips. Although we came for The Young & Restless Homecoming, we certainly did not expect to find a pianist of any kind, let alone one of your caliber. As I told you, you are terrific, in New York or out...
Hope you have a wonderful spring. I'll be in touch.
