As a young boy, merely 19 years of age, Nicky bested Beelzebub himself in an epic duel of pianos. With his soul on the line, Nicky was awarded a gilded grand piano for his superior performance. Since that day, he has been rocking the dueling pianos, making him one of the youngest performers in the dueling piano world. A natural talent, Nicky found a permanent home on The SHOUT! House Mpls Dueling Pianos’ stage.
AMAZING! is the word.

What “thing” would you like to have named after you and why? I would love the Kevin J. Rotty Memorial Opening Voice-Over at Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. You’d forever hear my voice saying: “Welcome foolish mortals… I am your host… your GHOST HOST! BWAHAHAHAH!”
That would be something…
My childhood was typical – summers in Rangoon, luge lessons – in the spring we’d make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard, really. My father was killed by a six fingered man. I f@#&ing hate pikeys. Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do it’s usually something unusual. But in all seriousness, you had me at hello. Why can’t I quit you?
Chris Winkels started playing bass in clubs with his very Partridge family-esque band when he was 13 (and is still in therapy because of it). He tunes pianos, writes, produces and records music. And other stuff, so he says. We take his word for it.
Terry Boullianne has that silky smooth voice and magic fingers on the keys. He’s been mastering his performances since he was 16. He also enjoys songwriting and acting which brings a dynamic performance to The SHOUT! House Mpls. Terry considers it his mission to incorporate at least 1 of his 7 Elements of Rock into each day…
