WDWNT and Party with Pete Present… JELLYROLLS NIGHT – LIVE! on August 20 at 9:00 PM (ET), Charity Proceeds for Give Kids The World

When the Walt Disney World Resort shut down due to COVID-19 in March of this year, a lot of the vacations, nights out, fun outings, and memories were going to be put on hold. Now, here we are five months later, and while areas around the Walt Disney World Resort have begun to re-open, one beloved location has not. Of course, I am speaking about Jellyrolls, the fan-favorite dueling piano bar located on the Boardwalk. Walking distance from EPCOT, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort, The Swan & Dolphin Resorts, and of course, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, this nighttime hot spot entertained guests seven nights a week.

If you are one of the few who have not been, inside you will find two large pianos center stage, with a rotating cast of extremely talented pianists playing, singing, and putting on an overall amazing performance of songs that are all requested by the crowd that night. Like most dueling piano bars, it’s a sing-a-long, dance-a-long, and laugh-a-long experience, leaving guests wanting to come back again and again. How it works is quite simple: You simply write the song or an artist (or maybe even a genre of music) you would like to hear on the paper napkins on your table or on the bar. You then place that napkin on the piano in the front of the room. It is encouraged to attach a monetary “thank you” as the performers work off of tips, however, this is not required. Then you sit back, relax and enjoy the show! You can requests multiple songs or artists, or enjoy the requests of others.

With all of this being said, we have been without Jellyrolls at Walt Disney World for over 5 months. As a big fan of the establishment and its performers, I have had Scotty Kilwein and Rob Volpe on “Party With Pete” during our WDWNT LIVE shows, but I always wanted the two of them in the same room creating that magic we have all been missing. So, after conversations with WDWNT management, Give Kids The World, and Rob & Scotty; this Thursday at 9:00 PM (EST), Party With Pete presents… JELLYROLLS NIGHT FOR GIVE KIDS THE WORLD—LIVE FROM THE WDWNT STUDIO!

How it works: Simply tune into WDWNT on our YouTube channel Thursday night. The show starts at 9:00 PM (EST), but feel free to tune in early, as we will be giving you the website where you can “send your napkin” with your requests via a designated web address. We are asking that donations start at $2, but any amount you feel comfortable donating is fantastic. Those requests will come directly into the studio and be transcribed onto our “napkins”, and Scotty and Rob will be playing your requests from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EST). Just like other piano bars, requests with larger donations will get some priority, as well as popular requests from multiple donations. We will try to play as many songs as we can during our 2 hour extravaganza!

If you’d like to get a head start, our Donation and Song Request page is now LIVE at: jellyrolls.wdwnt.com/

Give Kids The World will be receiving 100% of the proceeds from the evening and are very excited to put the money to good use upon their re-opening. For more information about GKTW, please visit their website at https://www.gktw.org/

I look forward to bringing all of you a fun night of singing and dancing in your homes, the office, the car, or wherever you are watching and/or listening from. Any additional questions about this event can be sent to [email protected]

See you Thursday night at 9:00 PM on our WDWNT YouTube channel!
