Much like its local competitor, the joint features two baby grands sharing a stage. But unlike Big Bang and the Shout! House, Howl's nightly shows involve four players working the keys at once.
Here's a description from their press release:
Two piano players perform for one hour after which they yield the stage to two new players, who join them for what is known as a "four-way" changeover. Occurring at the end of each hour and lasting for two to three songs, this hourly encore allows the piano players to incorporate additional instruments (drums, guitars and saxophone) into the performance.
