St Mary’s Church School Fundraiser in Taylorville
Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos had an awesome live performance at St Mary’s Catholic school fundraiser in Taylorville, IL. School fundraisers are some of our favorite events to play. Being able to get the parents and teachers on stage to sing and dance, all while raising money for something as important as their children’s school, really makes for a perfect dueling pianos environment. And these parents in Taylorville definitely wanted to show their support at the fundraiser!
The dueling pianos show was a hit with getting the crowd involved. Our job is to raise money and engage the crowd, and this group definitely made it easy! Though being a Catholic school you would expect the crowd not to have “high energy,” things were different at the St Mary’s Church School fundraiser. The crowd was simply amazing and it made the fundraiser a blast.
There were certain parents who even went the extra mile by dressing up like a celebrity. They were then auctioned off to different tables so that a celeb look-alike could be your personal waiter or waitress throughout the evening. We performed alongside locals that played the roles of Paul McCartney, Olivia Newton John, and Janis Joplin. This was a unique way to get involved and support the school – we loved it!
Parents, children, and guests had an awesome opportunity to have fun together. We were even able to put together one of those videos where no one moves. It was actually a lot of fun to get people onto the dance floor to strike a pose, it might have even made the parents feel “cool”.
If you are planning a fundraiser, a wedding, or any other event, tell us about it. We guarantee you that Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos will make it the event of the year and the most memorable occasion!
