Hotel Julien Holiday Party DuBuque

Hotel Julien Holiday PartyOur performer James Gritschke was in a pickle for the Hotel Julien holiday party.  His partner, Robert Deason, wasn’t available for this gig as he had a vacation planned.  However, due to bad weather, the vacation was cancelled so he could play.

To start with, guest mingled during cocktail hour in the Atrium which is adjacent to the Grande Ballroom.  Our performers had everyone enjoying songs such as Them There Eyes by Carmen McRae with the hotel’s state-of-the-art wireless technology.  It was clear to us the hotel’s exceptional event planners kept this holiday party stress and glitch free.  As a matter of fact, moving guests from the adjacent Atrium into the Grande Ballroom was a breeze.  It wasn’t easy leaving behind the delicious Gorgonzola date bites or crispy coconut shrimp but there was something more amazing waiting…our show!

Amazing Gifts and Silly Banter

Hotel Julien Holiday PartyFelix and Fingers love interacting with our audience.  To begin with, our performers played a musical game with a gift card at every table.  During Roxanne by The Police, a guest would pass the gift card to the right and each time we sang Put on a Red Light, the card would be passed to the left.  We eventually took a break to enjoy an amazing catered dinner.  Not only was there a delicious buffet of roasted chicken and bourbon beef, but they set out a large table of bite sized desserts.  Everything was out of this world!

After dinner, Robert and James continued their show by helping emcee with more gift giveaways.  It was fun to provide background music and silly banter while guests came up to claim their prizes.  PSSI went all out with these drawings where lucky employees won 60″ TV’s, Ipads and Insta pots.  Everyone had a great time and nobody left without a gift in hand.  Above all, PSSI had an extremely diverse crowd attending the Hotel Julien holiday party.  In fact, we had song requests from New York State of Mind by Billy Joel to What’s Your Fantasy by Ludacris.  Felix and Fingers finished their show with a Barenaked Ladies tribute.  The crowd went wild!

In conclusion, Felix and Fingers LOVE when clients decide to hire us back year after year to entertain their guests.  We are looking forward to performing for PSSI at their Hotel Julien holiday party next year!  If you would like us to play at your next event send an email to or click here for more information.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!
