boring audience I think notNo way… You did not just call your co-workers ‘boring,’ did you?

Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone.  Of course we have never called them a ‘boring audience.’ We just don’t see them that way.  But there have been countless times that the person in charge of an event has warned us that the crowd would be… well… ‘conservative’ if I’m to be polite.  However, if I am to be honest, ‘boring’ is the word that we often hear.

“Hey, don’t feel bad if they leave early, or are not really in to it…” we have been told.  “Our group is not the party type.  They are a bit boring.”

We try to reassure them, “Don’t worry. We work with many kinds of crowds, age groups, and all tastes of music.”  We let them know that our expertise involves engaging with the crowd in a way that they are not expecting.  We remind them, that our dueling pianos show is not a typical form of entertainment. Still, somehow after our words of assurance, we are still left with an all-too-familiar look of doubt.  It’s a polite, yet somewhat condescending kind of look that says, “You’re nice kids with good intentions, but you won’t be able to connect with our tired audience that really doesn’t even want to be here in the first place.”

But then the show begins.

Boring Audiences Really Know How To Have Fun!

I’ve tried to analyze this in many different ways.  And there can’t be just one reason that a boring audience can be so much fun.  Certainly for starters, we do our job well.  But to elaborate, it’s important to consider the audience in more depth.  A person’s personality in the office is not always going to be the same during a night out.   Especially during a night out with Felix and Fingers.  Maybe in the office they are tired from their job.  Even outside the office, the idea of being around colleagues might not seem fun. But it’s great fun for us to show them a new, crazy side of the people they thought they knew all too well.

Put me in a cubicle answering phones or writing papers, and I might seem boring, too.  Put me at a table watching the Director of Human Resources dance to ‘Baby Got Back’ and you’ll have my immediate attention.  What just happened!

Time after time, we’ve watched workers come out of the ‘coma’ we’ve been told they are in, and really let loose.  Not only do we provide fun entertainment and music, but we revitalize the relationships in work environments, and that can be very productive on a long term scale.  Happy workers are hard workers.  And when they come to work with a smile the next day, it’s generally going to be a productive day at the office (or wherever your work environment may be.)

Surprising Moments From The Past

I won’t say we’ve seen it all.  Because every time I might think that, someone from the crowd does something completely unexpected.  They’ll do something I’ve never seen before.  Heck, just a few weeks ago, a guy ran up from the audience and began kissing the feet of Dave Radford, after learning that Dave was a former Top 10 American Idol contestant.

I’ve seen Mr. White jump up on the stage to take a microphone and do the most insane rap to the delight of the entire audience.  He even threw in some beat boxing with record scratch sounds.

I have seen the entire workplace erupt in laughter, after someone requested, “Take This Job And Shove It.”

I could go on and on, and not even get to the tip of the iceberg.  Every show is full of surprises.  Such is the nature of improvisation.  We read the crowd and can help them enjoy the night, and we don’t have to be overbearing to get there.  We know what it takes to get the job done.

So before you dismiss your workers as a ‘boring audience,’ consider this… They haven’t yet met Felix and Fingers.
