Fast forward to a couple of years ago, and I’m now dueling and working and arranging music and gigging around the area, and oh yeah, getting my Master’s degree from DePaul University in the city….. and Mike Potts gives me a call and says, “I have this company….you should play for me.” Naturally, thinking this was a pyramid scheme, I hung up on him. After assuring me he was a real person, I thought it was a cool idea, and I became a company member of Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos!
I now travel and work multiple times a week for the company, and I love it. The action, the panning, and the look on people’s faces when we pull an awesome request out, or play one of our amazing games. I’ve gigged with every type of ensemble you can imagine. Musical pits, orchestras, bands, folk bands, choirs, churches, and even a laptop orchestra….and nothing compares to a Felix and Fingers event!
