The Huntsville Area Association of Realtors invited us to come perform for their annual banquet in Huntsville, Alabama. It was Roll Tide all the way as we headed down south for this super fun party. The Huntsville Realtor Association Banquet was one crazy night indeed. These people are college football fanatics!
Huntsville Realtor Association Banquet
Home to NASA, Huntsville is a great medium sized city in Alabama. This group loved going at with college fight songs. While most were Crimson Tide fans (University of Alabama) some were Tiger fans (Auburn University). This Alabama rivalry really heated up as we kept receiving tip after tip to stop playing one university’s fight song and start playing the other’s. The Alabama/Auburn rivalry is huge down there and we think they would have kept at it all night but we had to play some other great tunes. So we, of course, we played Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd since we were in Alabama. Did you know after the chorus of “Sweet Home Alabama” all of the Tide fans sing “Roll Tide Roll” at the top of their lungs? It was awesome.
Then, we were asked to play Dixieland Delight by the band Alabama. Since we’re not from the south, we had no idea what this song means to University of Alabama fans. They have their own version of response call outs to each line of the chorus. Let’s just say it is not the cleanest of response call outs. This song is always played during the fourth quarter home football games and it was banned for a few years due to the students yelling so loudly you could hear the foul language on TV. They brought it back in 2018 with a campaign to clean up the lyrics called “Dixieland Delight Done Right.” This particular blogger was at the game when they brought it back and, well, let’s just say we’re not sure how long it will remain a fourth quarter staple.
This group was so fun we almost didn’t want to return to our home state of Illinois. They told us we didn’t have to since they’re realtors and could find us a nice place, but we have families in Illinois so that’s where we returned. Did you know Felix has performers all over. Yes, we travel when we don’t have someone in that location but as we grow, we’re needing more and more entertainers. And we don’t just hire anybody. Our professionals are one of a kind performers with many, many accolades. We know you’ll love each and every one.
