If you’re planning an event that requires full attention to every detail, check out the Metropolis Ballroom Anniversary Gala Fundraiser. This was a REPEAT CLIENT. We LOVE repeat clients! The Metropolis Ballroom is located in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights, Illinois. Our performers for this high-energy show were Robert Deason and Michael Sherman. This Felix and Fingers power duo had EVERYONE bidding, dancing and singing all night long!

Metropolis Ballroom Anniversary Gala Fundraiser Arlington Heights Illinois

To start with, celebrating 100 years of Women’s Empowerment was FUN! Our client, Katie Karsten was actually a bride in a wedding we played in 6 years ago. Katie greeted us excitedly at the door letting us know the League of Women Voters 100th Anniversary Gala was READY for us. The beauty of this ballroom’s exposed beams and industrial beauty is breathtaking. Each time we perform at this ballroom we are more impressed. From the friendliest staff we’ve ever worked with, to the on-site delicious scratch kitchen, this ballroom is the best Arlington Heights has to offer.

At first, we played background jazz as elected officials and those running for office were offered a toasting opportunity. Cocktail hour then consisted of hors d’oeurves and a cash bar. Everyone mix and mingled as we played songs such as The Kiss by Faith Hill. A few guests ventured out on the dance floor when we hit the first notes of Home by Phillip Phillips. On the other hand, there were tables loaded with AMAZING gift baskets for this fundraiser. Robert actually won a set of essential oils that he was VERY excited about using. Our performers helped move these items while getting everyone to bid. Felix and Fingers does it all. From weddings to fundraisers, we’ve got you covered!

A Night of Great Song Requests and Tons of Dancing

This crowd knew how to party. Not only did everyone dance their tails off, but there was laughter and singing all night long! The Metropolis Ballroom Anniversary Gala Fundraiser was also perfectly themed. In fact, volunteers sold raffle tickets dressed in turn-of-the-century costumes! To tell the truth, they looked pretty AWESOME! Our performers received a TON of great requests, including a lot of old school dance music! Felix and Fingers kept the dance floor PACKED all night!

Metropolis Ballroom Anniversary Gala Fundraiser performerAbove all, it was amazing hearing from women who’d been part of this incredible organization for 50+ years. We enjoyed hearing all the wonderful stories. Did we mention we LOVE playing at the Metropolis Ballroom? This is such a great venue in a great city! Since Robert and Michael know how to send everyone home happy, they gathered their audience into a circle. For the last song, we had everyone sing Piano Man by Billy Joel. This audience sounded awesome! In conclusion, our performers want you to know they had FUN playing at the Metropolis Ballroom Anniversary Gala Fundraiser! We look forward to the opportunity of returning next year!
