Being a Sioux Falls native, Michael Sorenson has been a sought-after pianist since he was a teenager. Mike learned how to play by ear by performing with the likes of local favorites Goodroad and Weston Frank, he is also seen locally with his project, Six Feet Over. Michael has never been limited to just one genre of music, and has a keen ability to play any song he knows at the drop of a hat. An avid pun master, versatility is the name of his game as he sings, solos, and smiles his way through every LIVE dueling pianos performance.
Since a very young age, Pierce has been known by his family and friends as a showman. He started piano lessons in the 2nd grade (shoutout to John Mogen of Mogen's Heroes), he picked up the trombone in 4th grade, and by high school he was teaching himself to play the guitar. His vocal training dates back longer than he can remember! Pierce recently began filling in as an understudy for 6 Feet Over and that has led to the exciting opportunity to share the stage yet again with the talented Michael Sorenson as Duel Purpose. Pierce's love of the theater gives him a natural, lively presence onstage and his background of DJing weddings has given him an extensive knowledge of all genres of music! Most importantly, he really knows how to get a party going!
