Zoom’s never been so fun!
“For several hours, I was transported to a time without work, stress or responsibilities!”
"It was the most engaged I've been on Zoom - ever!”
“I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about how much fun I had last night. I must’ve told 10 friends! We had a meeting this morning at work and everybody was raving and asking our CEO if you can come to our sales conference next year live."
“Our attendees loved it! The hype is true - Dan's parties are magical!”
Welcome to Virtual Piano Party
Imagine this: You and your colleagues, family, or friends are in a Zoom… but this is completely different. It’s a virtual piano bar/dance party all on Zoom, with a twist you won’t find anywhere else. This is a one-of-a-kind experience where you will leave in an amazing mood.
Imagine being immersed in an engaging musical and bonding experience with others. This includes:
- An interactive game of Name that Tune
- Requesting your favorite songs to a pianist who can play thousands of songs immediately upon request (see songs).
- Sing-alongs (similar to a piano/karaoke bar but on Zoom – yes, it’s possible).
- High-energy songs (with words on the screen) that are bound to get you waving your hands in the air, clapping to the beat, and dancing in your home office or family room. Seriously … this really happens and you will feel transported.
It’s literally a virtual piano bar, with group karaoke/dancing mixed in, as well as some games. These events are perfect for all types of groups (company conferences, law firm summer associate programs, happy hours for work colleagues, online reunions with family or friends, birthday parties for all ages, fundraisers … any online gathering where you want to have fun). They can also be fully customized based on the nature of your event. Most importantly, Virtual Piano Party is a lighthearted, interactive, high-energy, comical, self-deprecating, sometimes-emotional, and unique bonding experience based in the shared enjoyment of music and fun.

Feedback from Virtual Piano Parties:
Dan, Your virtual piano party was simply AWESOME. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it, and had that same reaction from everyone else I talked with after the event. I said to one of my friends that it was the most engaged I've been on Zoom ever! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us all.
Gihan Fernando (Executive Director, American University Career Center)
My firm’s event’s team booked Dan for an event for a social event for our women partners in NYC. I must admit having attended many virtual events where the production value was not good or the connection “glitchy,” I was skeptical that anyone could pull off a virtual piano party. But after reading the rave reviews, we were sold. And Dan far exceeded expectations! Not only was the production quality stellar but he was able to get a bunch of generally high strung, serious lawyers to let loose and have fun. By the end of the event, we were all singing loudly and up on our feet dancing. Dan is so talented, not only as a musician but also as a performer who engages with his audience and helps make people smile. This escape was much-needed during the pandemic. I would recommend Dan to anyone planning an event virtually or otherwise!

What a fantastic celebration of NALP’s 50th Anniversary! It is unimaginable that at this stage of virtual entertainment during the pandemic that Dan could pull off such a fun and engaging Virtual Piano Party. Our attendees loved it and had a blast singing and dancing!
Dan is a great entertainer and crowd manager as well as being gifted musically. As life gets back to “normal” with in person events, Dan’s Virtual Piano Parties will go on, as they allow people from all different locations to have a fantastic time together virtually.
The hype is true – Dan’s parties are magical!
Mary Beal (Senior Director, NALP)
Thank you so much, Dan, for hosting the most amazing virtual 50th birthday party last night! I haven’t had so much fun dancing and singing with my friends in years! You truly made celebrating a milestone birthday during a pandemic more fun than I could have ever imagined! I will always cherish the memories of laughing, dancing and singing with my friends that you helped create last night. You transformed Zoom into a virtual nightclub, and for several hours, I was transported to a time without work, stress or responsibilities! I’m in awe of your incredible musical talent and your charismatic way of making even the most reticent of us let loose and just have fun. Thank you for all you do to bring joy to others during these tough times. Anyone who hasn’t been to one of Dan’s virtual piano parties is missing out! Just do it!

If you are looking for some amazing entertainment for any holiday party or any type of virtual event over Zoom, look no further. Dan Binstock is absolutely incredible. I had the privilege of being a guest at a virtual party tonight and he is amazing. There is not a song he doesn’t know and it is a completely interactive event. I give him a five-star recommendation.
Perri Goodman Rosen (brand partner at Savvi)
You were fantastic! Just the type of engaging event we needed - and even better with daytime cocktails!!!
Everyone loved! Impressive to see you play by ear, play on the fly, and manage the crowd to perfection. I even loved after one of the raucous rounds of “name that tune” - you shared “this really is the best group ever at this” (true or not - your genuine nature made everyone feel good and included). Well done and thank u so much!!!
Keith Lemer (CEO, WellNet Healthcare)
OMG! Dan, your natural gift of perfect pitch for musical entertaining was the best birthday gift to me. Unusual times have created unusual silver linings in this quarantine world of ours. One could never believe how, virtually, we all felt as if we were together in the same room last night because you made it happen. Thank you for a great evening and thanks to my family for seeking you out and making it a night to remember.
Shelley Cohen (69th birthday party with friends and family)
Thanks to Melissa for arranging an amazing Virtual Piano Party with the incomparable, brilliant, virtuoso, Dan Binstock. We all had the best time getting in touch with our "inner rock stars"... it was the perfect blend of fun, laughs, entertainment and memories.
I have a strong track record of not posting stuff like this, however, some things are just too good to keep to yourself. From the solo performances to the group ballads, name-that-tune to sit-back-and-enjoy, Dan Binstock creates the most casual, rocking great time and, whether for a special occasion, corporate event or just a fun night in with friends, Dan is definitely your man. I, for one, cannot wait to do it again soon!
David Mackler (Founder/CEO of EZ Lane, 42nd birthday party with friends and family)
Danny, I’ve already gotten texts from everyone at the party—they all loved it! So much fun, and JA is so happy. Thank you so much!! What a great gig to bring so much joy to people. We are still on a high.
Marli Porth (planned her husband’s surprise 45th birthday party)
Oh what a night! Thank you for bringing the piano bar scene we are all missing into our homes. We had so much fun. My texts were blowing up with notes from my friends saying "amazing" & "loved it."
Stacy Shrinsky Ezra (host of virtual happy hour for friends)
This event brought our entire team together. Hercules Fence has 3 divisions with multiple offices throughout the Maryland, Washington, and Virginia areas. Many from our team met for the first time during this virtual holiday party. Danny helps to break the ice, create instant laughs and camaraderie, and everyone on my team is already excited for the next virtual company event. I highly recommend Danny for any company event where your goal is to create a bonding, lively and interactive experience.
Evan Winston (President, Hercules Fence)
The social skills group I run just had the most fantastic experience ever. I must share this AMAZING activity we just did! Dan Binstock ran a virtual piano party. There was singing, dancing, name that tune contests and more. These teens were beyond entertained and the smile and pure joy on their faces said it all! I don’t even feel like I am doing Dan justice! He can tailor parties to any audience (I’m thinking an adult party with some adult beverages may be super fun!). It really was a nice reminder that despite the ongoing pandemic, being at home can still be tons of fun. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

How This Started
Virtual Piano Party was started by accident.
Since the age of 4, Dan Binstock has been playing songs on the piano by ear. He has the rare ability (approximately 1 in 50,000) to play thousands of songs on instant request, even if he has never played the song before. While Dan’s formal education took him in into the field of law, his passion is playing piano and using this to bring people together.
In April 2020, during the depths of quarantine, Dan Binstock invited some of his Facebook friends to a Facebook Live concert where he would take piano requests.
From Led Zepplin to the “Theme from Cheers” to Footloose to Bruno Mars to Billy Joel to Les Miserables, and everything in between.
These events quickly grew as people shared what they were watching.
Spreading the Music
More people started joining, requesting songs, and connecting with friends through their mutual love of certain songs and bands/artists. The event had over 1,000 comments, and Dan was requested to keep having these interactive performances, including private events.
In December 2020, when Dan’s company was trying to figure out something interesting for their own holiday party, he had the idea to have a name-that-tune event. That sparked the idea and Virtual Piano Party was born.

Details and non-profit performances
Please also visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
The length of a Virtual Piano Party is usually between 60 and 75 minutes (or longer). Because this is a labor of love (during the day, Dan co-owns a long-time attorney search firm in Washington, DC), a portion of funds from each event will be donated to your charity of choice. Dan is also very accessible and will arrange to have a phone call -- or multiple calls, if needed -- to go over details about the attendees, special requests, and provide tips on how to ensure everyone leaves thinking, "Wow, that was really fun - I'm so glad we did this."
If you work for a non-profit and this is of interest, but you don’t have allotted funds, Dan is happy to work with you on cost, pending his availability.
