Now in their 21st smash year, “Mr. Entertainment” and “Mr. Music”, a.k.a Daryl Nitz and George Howe, host the wildest weekend party in town! As seen on WGN-TV and NBC-5, this show is part piano bar request, part audience participation, and part stand-up comedy; it is always spontaneous and never boring. Nitz and Howe offer a “happening” that runs the gamut from pop songs by the Eurythmics or Reba McEntire, to show tunes from Broadway (just try and stump them), standards, jazz, and blues. With over 1200 performances under their belts, these two guys have done, and DO it all!
