The Mount Ayr Chamber of Commerce in Mount Ayr, Iowa, recently played host to an electrifying dueling pianos event by Felix And Fingers. Held on November 4, 2023, this fundraiser was a night filled with music, laughter, and community spirit. The event took place at the event barn on the Ringgold county fairgrounds, offering a unique and rustic setting for an unforgettable evening.
Discovering the Hidden Gem
The event barn on the fairgrounds proved to be a hidden gem that required some navigation skills to find. Thanks to Kevin, who shared a satellite shot, the Felix And Fingers team successfully made their way through the gravel and dirt roads, arriving on time for load-in. The venue’s secluded location only added to the excitement and anticipation of the night ahead.
A Venue Transformed
Jodie, the venue representative, and Tracy from the RG County Development Corp were on-site to ensure everything ran smoothly. Jodie proudly showcased the recent improvements made to the barn, including state-of-the-art heaters that kept the spacious room warm throughout the day. The new foam insulation on the ceiling not only enhanced the acoustics but also created an inviting atmosphere for the guests.
During load-in, Jodie thoughtfully reserved two spaces at her table for the Felix And Fingers team and made sure they were served dinner promptly. The crew of cowboys serving up thick and rare prime rib left everyone satisfied and ready for an evening of entertainment.
Music, Laughter, and Generosity
Tracy had expressed the desire for more dancing and audience participation compared to the previous year’s event. Felix And Fingers wasted no time in delivering high-energy performances and reminding the crowd that the show was all-request, with all tips going towards the cause.
Country and classic rock tunes proved to be the crowd favorites, with everyone joining in on the fun. The highlight of the night was when all the women, including Tracy, belted out “Summer Lovin'” from Grease. The energy in the barn reached its peak when a single AC/DC song raised an impressive $100, with the entire crowd enthusiastically chanting along to “Dirty deeds and they’re done dirt cheap!”
The Felix And Fingers Dueling Pianos event at Mount Ayr Chamber of Commerce was a resounding success, bringing together the community for an unforgettable night of music and fundraising.
