Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos recently performed their first wedding in Shully’s beautiful banquet room, The Watermark. If you read this blog with any regularity, we talk about most of our wedding venues as being gorgeous. The Watermark at Shully’s took this to another level. Their vaulted ceilings and copious wall space made it the perfect venue for uplights (which you can read about here). People walk in and jaws drop – every time.
Cocktail hour on the Grounds
Shully’s doesn’t just settle for a beautiful banquet room though! Outside The Watermark sits a large tented patio area where the wedding guests first mingled for drinks and appetizers. On a perfect summer day there are few better places to have a wedding cocktail hour than a large covered patio. Felix and Fingers of course provided a sound system to be set up outside. We DJed the recommended background jazz while the guests became acquainted with the beautiful surroundings.
The Setup – Dueling Pianos
This wedding marked Mike Sherman’s return to the Felix and Fingers line up since seriously breaking his leg in late June. Complete with crutches and a large boot on his leg, Mike arrived stoked to be back doing what he loves most – creating memories!
This wedding also marked our first experience with hiring a “roadie” to aid in the set up. Moving full sized pianos is hard enough with two good legs, so Mike sat aside and “managed” while the roadie and myself set up the show. Special thanks to Karla, Mike’s wife, for her help too! The load in was quick and easy, and once we were able to sit back and appreciate the venue with the piano shells set up, we were glad that the bride decided to include them in her contract.
A Rocking Wedding Reception
Felix and Fingers provided live background dinner per usual during dinner. We took a quick break to enjoy a delicious dinner (prepared by Shully’s) and returned to get the party started! Immediately the requests started coming in and the party started dancing. We kept the show high energy from start to finish, and followed up the dueling pianos show with our DJed set to keep people on the dance floor. I don’t know if the Watermark will ever be the same after such a great time!
If you’re in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area and looking for a stellar wedding venue (or corporate event venue), The Watermark at Shully’s is definitely the way to go. And if you’re looking for a great entertainment option that isn’t a standard wedding DJ or cheesy wedding band, well the choice should be equally obvious! Contact us here for a free quote!
