The Underrated Gem: Scenes from an Italian Restaurant
One guest at the event had a special request – Scenes from an Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel. This hidden gem of a song is often overlooked, but Felix And Fingers knew it was time to give it the spotlight it deserved. They hyped up the crowd, explaining the intricate layers of the song, and built anticipation for the piano solo. As the microphone was moved aside and the pianists stood, the audience knew something extraordinary was about to happen. In the middle of the performance, a playful remark reminded everyone that they were still in that Italian restaurant, taking them on a musical journey they would never forget.
Kazoos and Trumpet Parts
When someone requested Ring of Fire, it became the night’s biggest singalong. Felix And Fingers, always ready to entertain, jokingly referred to it as the company’s theme song. To honor the legendary Johnny Cash, they ended the song with a delightful twist – two kazoos harmonizing the trumpet parts. The crowd erupted in laughter and applause, fully immersed in the lively atmosphere created by these talented musicians.
Moonlight Sonata: A Theatrical Surprise
As classical and instrumental-only songs were being requested, Felix And Fingers took the opportunity to explain their preference for danceable and singalong tunes. When Moonlight Sonata was requested, they decided to have some fun. They theatrically played the first part of the song, eliciting laughter from the audience who couldn’t imagine it as their party music. This clever twist showcased their versatility and added an unexpected element to the night’s entertainment.
A Memorable Mariachi Moment
When a guest asked if he could sing karaoke, Felix And Fingers gladly obliged. They waited until the end of the night, setting him up with a karaoke track for a beautiful rendition of a Mexican mariachi song. In a surprising twist, the pianists became the dancers, showcasing their enthusiasm and willingness to go above and beyond to entertain the crowd. This unique performance left the guests in awe and created a truly unforgettable moment.
Lightning Round and Bohemian Rhapsody Finale
With an overwhelming number of requests, Felix And Fingers decided to indulge the crowd with a lightning round of songs, including the PG parts of non-corporate-friendly tunes.
