Mississippi River Distilling Company in Davenport, Iowa, recently hosted a lively corporate event featuring the talented duo from Felix And Fingers Dueling Pianos. The event, held on December 15, 2022, brought together employees for a night of music, laughter, and holiday cheer. With the picturesque Mississippi River as its backdrop, this unique venue provided the perfect setting for an unforgettable evening.
What a Beautiful Space
Right adjacent to the Mississippi on the Iowa side, the quaint downtown street surrounding Mississippi River Distilling Company is brimming with charming shops, restaurants, and bars. The venue itself, located just next to the distilling company, offered ample event space and even a rooftop area, adding to the allure of the evening.
The staff at Mississippi River Distilling Company were nothing short of amazing. With their friendly and attentive service, they made sure everyone had a fantastic time. As a distillery, they also served a wide selection of delicious drinks, including their own creations. Additionally, the area boasts a couple of breweries, making it a haven for beer enthusiasts.
A Christmas Party With a Twist
This particular event had a unique twist – attendees were encouraged to wear ugly Christmas sweaters. This fun and festive dress code added an extra layer of excitement and gave people an immediate conversation starter upon arrival. It’s always great when a party theme brings everyone together and adds to the overall enjoyment of the evening.
The night kicked off with a speech from the company’s president and team leader, setting the stage for an evening of celebration. Attendees even took a group photo to commemorate the occasion. The atmosphere was filled with anticipation as the dueling pianos took center stage.
Load-in at Mississippi River Distilling Company was a breeze. The venue’s small size and easy street access made the process smooth and efficient. The promise of a beautiful outdoor space in the summer only added to the venue’s appeal.
Ugly Sweaters and Festive Tunes
Dressed in an eye-catching Spongebob Christmas sweater, one of the performers quickly realized the importance of snagging a good ugly sweater early in the season. The attire for the event added to the festive spirit and created a lighthearted atmosphere. The music selection included upbeat Christmas songs and even some Elvis classics, catering to the crowd’s requests and setting the perfect backdrop for the evening.
An Intimate Gathering
While the attendance for the party was lower than expected, with around 30 guests instead of the projected 60, it didn’t dampen the spirits of those who were present. The weeknight and inclement weather may have played a role in the lower turnout, but those who did attend thoroughly enjoyed the show. The intimate setting allowed for personal interactions and a cozy atmosphere.
Despite the smaller crowd, the attendees stayed until the end, reveling in the music and engaging with the performers. While there may not have been much dancing, the songs were enjoyed from the comfort of chairs. The core tables, in particular, embraced the show, listening attentively and making requests. As the night progressed, some attendees even loosened up enough for a bit of slow dancing.
