• How'd you like to pay for just a duo and get the full sound of a four-piece band?
Well, now you can. DuOver is a live musical show performed entirely by two very talented musicians. Click any box above to learn more.
How Does It Work?
You're probably wondering how just two musicians produce the sound of a full band live on stage. Well, it's a combination of talent and technology.
For starters, Bill plays electric and acoustic guitar as well as electronic keyboard and sings. Jim is also an accomplished singer and guitarist who adds to the full, rich sound of every song. Rhythm and fill instruments such as bass, drums, tambourine, and so on are played by a state-of-the-art keyboard that can also reproduce any instrument sound.
This isn't karaoke, it's live music. The combined effect of the two musicians is indistinguishable from a four-piece group.
