"Classically trained pianist turned comic!" --- San Francisco Chronicle

At the age of five, Dale Gonyea got up very early one morning and, without a single lesson, spontaneously began playing the piano.

His parents were astonished because they did not have a piano. They decided he either needed therapy or music lessons. Therapy was expensive, so they bought a piano and a career was born.

Dale Gonyea uses the piano to springboard his unique brand of humor. He has written numerous songs for Disney and for stars like Bette Midler, Ray Stevens and Rich Little. He has earned an Emmy, a Clio nomination and his song-spoof, “I Need Your Help, Barry Manilow” was Grammy-nominated for Comedy Record of the Year. Television appearances include Evening at the Improv, TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes and special musical reporter on Entertainment Tonight.

Utilizing multi-media, audiences will be captivated this season with hearty laughter and song as Dale personalizes each performance with a taste of local character and spirit.

“ Dale Gonyea is the best piano based
satirist in the world. ”
