Felix and Fingers visited the beautiful Park Place banquet facility in Crystal Lake, IL to add some spice to HR Green engineering’s holiday party! I had never been to this venue, but Dave was really excited to play here because he’d actually had his wedding reception at Park Place! The venue was beautiful and the decorations were catered to the event’s needs. Needless to say everyone (ourselves included) loved the appetizers they provided for the early evening, but what we were really looking forward to was getting these folks to loosen up with some good… and sometimes unusual… music requests! 😉
We learned pretty early in the evening that HR Green had recently lost one of their own, so we decided our goal would be to brighten their spirits with an upbeat show, donating any and all tips to University of Iowa hospitals in honor of Gil. The response was amazing, and the requests came in early and often! We got many of the attendees up on stage to help us sing some of their favorite songs, and were surprised by amazing tambourine solos and even a romantic Hindu song by one of the employees!
Never sure what sort of requests we’ll be playing, we did about everything from “I’m on a Boat” to “Sweet Caroline” before several of the employees recognized Dave and his “crooner” vocal stylings from his time on American Idol! He won over the ladies with some Michael Bublé and we finished the night with a classic sing-a-long. Those that may have been stubborn about dancing in front of their coworkers early in the night even ended up forming a dance circle!!
We loved getting to be part of such a fun evening. To bring Felix & Fingers to your next event, fill out this form for more info!
