The New York Times called cabaret singer Seth Sikes "A hit with audiences and critics alike." He regularly performs his old-fashioned nightclub acts with a full band for sold-out houses at Feinstein's/54 Below.

Collin Yates is thrilled to return to Piano Bar Live! In 2019 he graduated from East Carolina University with a BFA in Musical Theatre and attended the Tepper Semester in New York City through Syracuse University. Since then he has performed all over the United States. "One of my favorite things to do in musical theatre is break the 4th wall and talk directly to the audience," he says. "Seeing as that's all I'm doing in the piano bar scene. I think it's a perfect match!"
