Music You Feel
Fun You Never Forget
A BRIEF HISTORY
We wanted to take the dueling piano bar concept to another level by offering the best entertainment experience in the country, and that dream came true when The Big Bang opened in our very first location in St. Louis, back in 2001. Since then, we’ve grown our talent, helped tens of thousands of folks have a great time while singing along, and opened several new locations:
The Big Bang Tempe opened in 2003, in the heart of historic Mill Avenue, blocks away from Arizona State University.
The Big Bang Nashville opened in 2007, just steps away from the Convention Center, Ryman Auditorium and Bridgestone Arena.
The Big Bang Columbus opened in 2009, located right between Nationwide Arena and the Columbus Convention Center.
The Big Bang Cleveland opened in 2015 in the new Flats East Bank development in downtown Cleveland, within blocks of the city’s major sporting arenas and convention center.
The Big Bang Las Vegas opened in 2018 in the Excalibur Hotel on the famous Las Vegas Strip, across the street from the T-Mobile Arena.
Meredyth began her management career on the San Antonio Riverwalk, where she worked to strengthen the South Bank development and was instrumental in the success of one of the most popular nightlife destinations in the country. Along with Piano Man Sam Leatherwood, Meredyth co-founded our very first location in St. Louis. She leads operations as well as the expansion of The Big Bang to new cities, creating incredible experiences for our guests every single time they visit us, wherever they visit us.
Sam Leatherwood began his career performing at the world-famous Alley Cats club of Dallas, Texas, and later became the Director of Entertainment for a group of dueling piano bars. Sam personally opened twelve clubs in the United States and two in Europe. During a performance on the San Antonio Riverwalk, Sam met fellow entrepreneur Meredyth Muller, and by 2001, the pair had used their extensive knowledge and experience of the dueling pianos concept to found The Big Bang. Sam is a hands-on leader, nurturing talent and creating a foundation of fun and excitement for our guests.
