Nothing stops Felix and Fingers–not even a snow storm. We arrived in Bettendorf, Iowa to play for the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf Dinner amid a wintry weather day. We thought our audience would leave early due to the weather but not with Felix in the house. Everyone stayed until the very end.
Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf Dinner
What a great venue this is! With over 40,000 square feet of prime event space, this venue can accommodate parties of any size. This particular event was a dinner to honor farmers in the River Valley Cooperative. It was truly an honor to perform for our hard working, heart of America farmers. You can read more about this organization on their website by clicking here. We love the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf for so many reasons; the staff, the catering, and most importantly, the stage. We love when we have a great stage that allows everyone in the room to have a perfect view of our awesome show. We were about six feet above the crowd which made it easy for everyone to see us and for us to see them.
In addition to a great stage, they also have a state of the art sound system that truly adds to our show. With a room the size in which we were playing, it really helped. We, of course, have our own equipment but theirs was made just for the space so it was perfect. We also have to give a shout out to the amazing staff. They were so helpful and made our set up and take down a breeze. Click here to find out more about the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf. It is such a fun place to be.
Sexy Men and Casino Fun
Our performer Chris began the evening with a solo performance of background dinner music. We find that our accompaniment really adds to the dining atmosphere so make sure you ask us about that option. Following dinner, he was then joined by his partner, Greg, for an awesome dueling piano show. These two really know how to rock the house for sure! We knew we would have a ton of country requests from this group of farmers but we also had quite a variety of musical genre requests. Our favorite? Each table had to designate their most sexy man and all of the men had to come on stage to perform On The Boardwalk. Wow, it was a riot.
Chris found another way to encourage audience participation. Not that we need to improve our game there but hey, it’s always good to have another trick up our sleeves. He started handing out free drink tickets for the most participation and the crowd went wild! They were all singing and dancing to their hearts’ delight and we really enjoyed watching them have so much fun. The venue is connected to a casino and even with the weather, this group headed there after our show glowing with all of the fun they were having. It was a great night indeed.
It was such a fun night at this Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf Dinner. We loved performing for the River Valley Cooperative and thought they were an awesome audience.
