Instrumentalist | Entertainer | Instructor
Christopher Michael Foglio has earned the reputation of a performance powerhouse. With a music and entertainment resume spanning 2 decades in multiple areas of the Performing Arts, he puts his well-rounded knowledge to work every day. Based out of the Kansas City area, this musical madman crisscrosses North America, providing entertainment to the many and the few with his completely interactive Solo Piano shows, Duo shows, and Dueling Piano shows. His technical background in Music Theory and Instrumentation offers musicians and vocalists alike the opportunity to arrange tailor-made selections to better suit their needs.
After attending Pittsburg State University pursuing Music Education and Music Composition and Theory, he moved to the St Louis area to work as a production manager for local talent agencies and open his own private studio, Gateway Conservatory of the Arts. Family matters brought him back to Kansas City in the spring of 2012, where he has been ever since.
"Mr. CMF" has been performing professionally ever since he stumbled into a piano bar on a random Thursday night while on vacation in 2008, requested a song they didn't know, and offered to play it. After doing so, he was asked to come back the next night to fill in. This kick-started a beautiful career spanning 47 States and 6 Provinces. This can only mean that (contrary to what your mother may say) stumbling into a bar CAN lead to a life full of travel, adventure, good times (mostly) and great fun!
An avid supporter of Youth Arts, Foglio spends his free time with young men and women who are looking to further their knowledge of performance art, as well as offers mentorship and college prep for High School Seniors in Music Theory. Though he loves all these things, there is nothing that makes him happier than quality time at home with his wife, Haley, and his only daughter, Claire.

Kansas City, Missouri
Kevin was raised in the suburbs of Kansas City where he began classical piano lessons at a young age. After discovering rock and jazz music, he grew fond of artists such as The Beatles, Ben Folds, Herbie Hancock, and Elton John. He challenged himself to learn songs from his favorite artists and to write / produce his own music.
Starting in high school, he picked up the saxophone and began playing multiple instruments with different bands. He recorded many tracks of original music and gained live experience performing at venues around town.
In 2015 he graduated from the University of Kansas City Missouri where he studied music composition and piano performance at the conservatory. His original compositions have been performed in music halls and featured in live musical productions.
Shortly after college, he happened upon a local dueling piano bar and discovered the possibility of pursuing dueling pianos as a career. That pursuit brought him to play at piano bars in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Phoenix among other cities.
Aside from music, Kevin loves the outdoors, amateur nature photography, biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife, Lauren.
