Summer nights, warm breezes and music filling the air – how fabulous! Felix and Fingers were part of a line-up performing for the Metropolitan Square outdoor concert in Des Plaines, Illinois. The Metroplitan Square outdoor concert series is part of a “Friday Night’s Live!” family-friendly entertainment show. There’s games for the kids and it’s a great opportunity for friends and family to come together. Our client, the City of Des Plaines hosts this amazing festival in their city every Friday evening starting in June. The entertainment goes from 6:00 P.M. to 9:30 P.M., weather permitting.

With many shows happening this summer, Felix and Fingers were happy returning to perform at the Metropolitan Square outdoor concert. We always have a great time interacting with the Des Plaines audience, they are a fun loving crowd! Location, location, location. With that said, anyone in the area that day could enjoy our show! We couldn’t have asked for a better summer evening. The sun set a beautiful glow on the surrounding buildings as we kicked off an amazing show series with Lovely Day by Bill Withers.
Summer Sing Along
Since we rotated our series with a local guitarist group (The Chris Winters Trio), there was a enough time to make a bee line to the food truck and fill our belly. In all honesty, it came down to The Cheesie’s Truck or Best Truckin’ BBQ and the winner was…….Best Truckin’ BBQ! Simply DELICIOUS! When it was time to get the crowd up and dancing, we jumped back on stage and put on a FUN show! Our performers had everyone using their arms spelling out letters to YMCA by The Village People. They had a great time!
Our biggest fans were our smallest fans! What a thoughtful gesture by the city to hand out carpet squares to the kids. This was so they could sit by the stage and feel like they were part of the show. Felix and Fingers love to involve young ones in singing/dancing, therefore the Hokey Pokey was a HUGE favorite from the giggles and smiles we experienced. What was even more fun was a game of musical carpet squares. You know, kinda like musical chairs, but with carpet squares! Felix and Fingers played funny, whimsical musical while parents blew up social media showing off their kids having a crazy time! Above all, adults had a chance to show off their pipes and sing a few songs with our performers. Who knew Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey would break so many high note records that evening?
Whether you’re searching for an indoor or outdoor venue for you next event, Felix and Fingers love playing both! Our wireless sound system can be set up for a fabulous outdoor show or we have a variety of incredible light props for your indoor party. Our performers loved seeing familiar faces and being able to return to perform at the Metropolitan Square outdoor concert. To be honest, it was the perfect evening.
