Aaron Lee Battle, a recipient of the Backstage Bistro Award, has performed at the Apollo Theater and was the resident guest artist at Gunay Supper Club in Istanbul Turkey. He has performed in cabaret since 1986, appearing at the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Cabaret Convention at New York's Town Hall as well as in San Francisco and in several cabaret rooms in New York City. Battle has worked with talents such as Barbara Carroll, Jay Leonhart and Tony Monte and was also featured at the legendary Five Oaks.

From the legendary nightspot Elaine's, to 54 Below, Birdland, the Rainbow Room and the Django, to name a few, on- and offstage partners Michael Garin (Drama Desk winner for Song of Singapore) and classically trained soprano-turned-saloon-singer Mardie Millit have brought their unique blend of musical virtuosity and goofy charm to Manhattan audiences for the last 15 years. Garin is currently the house pianist at the Roxy Hotel in Tribeca, where he plays his renowned musical mashups every Wednesday through Saturday; he is also writing music and lyrics for a musical adaptation of Mary Astor's Purple Diary by Ed Sorel, slated for a 2021 workshop. Millit has been performing her popular online show, Live from Lockdown! regularly on Facebook Live since April. Together they've been entertaining outdoor diners at the West Bank Café (in person and live streaming) since July.

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!"
