On April 1, 2023, the River Center in Davenport, Iowa, was transformed into a musical extravaganza as Felix And Fingers Dueling Pianos took the stage for a lively fundraising event. The event, organized by Batting for Kids, a scholarship and young child development nonprofit, aimed to raise funds for the Davenport area. With the perfect blend of entertainment, charity, and community spirit, this event was one for the books.
A Smooth Start and Memorable Venue
Load-in for the event was a breeze, thanks to the convenient access to elevators and dollies through the Holiday Inn’s back entrance. Crystal, one of the organizers, fondly recalled Felix And Fingers’ previous performance at last year’s fundraiser. The venue’s state-of-the-art equipment allowed them to seamlessly integrate the pianos into the event without any additional sound setup.
A Night of Music, Fun, and Generosity
With a relaxed schedule, the evening kicked off with a leisurely dinner and raffle bidding. To keep the momentum going, Felix And Fingers started their performance slightly earlier than planned, captivating the audience and gathering them into the ballroom for speeches. The dueling pianos duo wasted no time in getting the requests flowing, raising a significant amount of cash for Batting for Kids.
Player Note Highlight: At one point, a heavy envelope caught the attention of the pianists. Written on its side was a special request for “Tiny Dancer.” The heartfelt dedication added a personal touch to the evening’s musical journey.
The request pile was an eclectic mix of country, classic hip hop, and modern pop, ensuring everyone found something to groove to. The crowd couldn’t resist dancing and singing along, creating an electric atmosphere. The energy was so infectious that they would have danced all night if not for the hotel’s strict 11 pm cutoff.
Batting for Kids and Community Spirit
Batting for Kids, a scholarship and young child development nonprofit, brought together a group of old friends with a shared goal of making a positive impact in the Davenport community. The event showcased not only their dedication but also their creativity. Alongside the musical performances, a set of sparkly boots owned by the board president was auctioned off, adding a touch of glamour to the night.
The success of the event was a testament to the generosity and support of the attendees. People were not only enthusiastic about the music but also generous with their tips and donations. Felix And Fingers, in turn, reciprocated the community spirit by donating everything back to Batting for Kids.
