The dynamic couple have positioned themselves at the top of Pittsburgh wedding entertainment with a success story that began more than a decade ago. The duo met while working as performers on a cruise ship for Disney Cruise Lines. Peter and Nina became friends during their several month contract and then parted ways. While Peter traveled the world with his band, Nina went to New York. Two years later they found themselves again working together for the same cruise line. A year later they were married at which point they melded their artistic talents to create a high energy party band in Florida.

The interactive band now serves as the life of every party they come to, offering 6 piece, 8 piece and 11 piece band configurations to match the size and feel of your event. The multi talented ensemble also offers Big Band, Jazz trio and Cocktail Piano. To find out more, check out the video below or visit them at eliteshowband.com.
