From the moment I started communicating with Felix and Fingers, I was blown away. When they told us everything we wanted would be taken care of concerning the wedding and reception entertainment, they were absolutely serious. From my experience, Felix and Fingers provides a product more valuable than amazing entertainment. They provide "peace of mind."
In the four months prior to our wedding and through countless e-mails and phone calls (at least 40), Felix and Fingers took care of all details we thought important, plus 19 other things we didn't. From sound setup to staging to time fillers, they had it. They even supplied us with the rough timeline that we used to create the final timeline for our reception! Accolades from guests were given to us about Felix and Fingers' pre-ceremony music, their interaction with the guests, their reception entertainment and their professionalism. They were loved by the teenagers and older adults alike! They handled every guest as if it was his/her own party, while making sure we always knew it truly was ours.
What can Felix and Fingers offer you? When you are running around cutting the cake, talking to you new great uncle-in-law for 20 minutes about stamp collecting, signing your marriage license, making sure your vegetarian friend liked his/her meal and chatting with THAT table of people you were worried could not possibly be satisfied; you will occasionally look up, as I did, to see all the smiling faces, dancing feet and throngs of people laughing by the stage. You will then know that beyond fantastic melodies and fun dancing, Felix and Fingers provides you with more to NOT worry about than you could have ever thought possible.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

When my fiance and I began looking for entertainment for our reception, we figured we would just go with the normal DJ thing we have seen so many times at other weddings. We are glad we didn't! Felix and Fingers were the best ever!
They made themselves avialable via email and phone right from the beginning. If I had a question or a specific request, they immediately answered it and did everything they could to make our evening perfect. They provided awesome music during our dinner service, as well as, an unforgettable show during our dance. There is no question that over 100 of our guests (of 160) stayed until the end of the night because they were having so much fun listening and dancing to Felix and Fingers.
If you are looking for something to make your night truly unique and memorable, go with Felix and Fingers. They will not dissapoint. They are truly the best and were great to get to know. I only wish I lived in the Chicago area so I could see them play more often. They are that good!
Felix and Fingers = F&F
Wow to say the least!!! After only having 5 days to plan our wedding due to,my now mother-in-law's terminal illiness, F&F worked with us in the deepest way.
They helped us make our wedding a joyful sound. Mike was so personal, answering our calls, and emails until the late night hours, due to our unfortunte circumstances. Though we only had 5 days to plan our wedding, F&F made it happen, and fullfilled all our needs and wants in regards to music.
Though I say music was their contribution, their professionalism and personable nature completed our wedding. They were wonderful (for a lack of better words), with high spirits and the knowlegde to play anything we requested and still kept the party live!
Thank you F&F for having such open wonderful hearts and helping us in a time of need and a time of joy!
We love ya!

We received more compliments on the band than we did on the food... and that's saying something!!
Mike Potts and crew were just the right amount of professional and laid back.
Their communication was great the whole time and we never worried for a moment that things wouldn't be taken care of.
They were flexible with specific requests from us and worked the crowd wonderfully. Even our friends and family members who try so hard not to dance got into the show. We got a fantastic performance and a really, really great and memorable evening.
*a note on the cost - we requested the FULL band and were 3 hours away!
Shortly after our engagement, in the midst of wedding planning, my (now) husband and I were guests at a Wisconsin wedding. A couple at our table had recently gotten married, so we were soaking up all of their advice and suggestions. I am so appreciative of this couple who first recommended Felix and Fingers. We had never considered dueling pianos, much less a group outside of the Madison area. After checking out their website, we were smitten with the idea!! From the first moment we contacted Felix and Fingers until after the actual wedding day, they were helpful, friendly, informative, and quick to respond to our questions. On our wedding day, they made everything so easy! Whether it was pianos, singing, or DJing, they played music from before our wedding ceremony, through the happy hour, until the very end of the evening. Not only did they help us keep to our wedding day schedule, but the musicians were PHENOMENAL! I don't think I have ever seen such a successful dance party! The dance floor was full the entire night and our guests are still talking about our beautiful wedding and the awesome entertainment. Five stars is not enough to reflect what we think of Felix and Fingers. They are absolutely off the charts and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you to the entire Felix and Fingers family... You brought our dream day to reality!
I hired Felix and Fingers for my wedding musicians since I really enjoy live music. Not only did they play the reception but the ceremony as well. They brought their own microphones and speaker system since my location did not have any.
They arrived promptly and stayed late.
They played beautifully for the ceremony and sang the first dance, father daughter and mother son dances. It was fantastic.
The crowd loved them!
I didn't expect so much interaction between the musicians and the crowd and it was hilarious.
The best part of the whole thing was the planning. F&F really make you sit down and plan out the whole ceremony and reception. I didn't have to think about it all evening. People tell you that your wedding day flies by, but because I had planned for all the big landmarks I really just sat back ad enjoyed myself.
PLUS-the blue piano shells are quite stunning and even had professional pianist family members thinking they had trucked real grand pianos up the stairs.
All in all I am so happy I chose them, definitely something people will be talking about for a while!
My fiance and I considered music to be really important. We had been to wayyyy too many weddings with music services that weren't great. When planning, we decided we wanted something different. And I am SOO glad we did. From the beginning, Felix and Fingers were prompt in their responses, very detailed, and extremely personable. They made it clear from the beginning it was all about us and our dream. They made the entire process easy. The prices were very reasonable, especially for the duration offered. During the final meeting, we went through every detail, which was really nice.
The actual wedding was a huge success. Everyone was extremely impressed with the versatility and professionalism, while at the same time rocking the house!
Extra note: they gave us suggestions for tipping (going to our honeymoon fund). This showed their professionalism, as well as a way to avoid the dollar dance. They also suggested avoiding the annoying clinking of glasses for us to kiss. We decided in order for us to kiss, a person(s) would have to sing a song with "love" in the title. This was hilarious, and really sweet. Everyone had a great time!
I had a pianist fall through last minute and reached out to Mike at Felix and Fingers two weeks before my wedding for intro music and two special pieces. Greg played keyboard for my wedding and he killed it. He was there super early and was overly prepared. Greg learned the two songs I had asked him to within a day or two and played them flawlessly. He also worked extremely well with my vocalists. They took all of the stress off of me for the event and I never had to worry about anything. These guys are real pros. I would refer them in a heartbeat! - Lindsey
Mike at Felix and Fingers was amazing and easy to work with. He thought of everything and listened to (and recognized) our requests. Chris, Sarah and Robert helped make our reception unique and memorable. Our guests loved the dueling pianos just as much as we did. Felix and Fingers was money well spent for us. We paid for piece of mind, wonderful entertainment, and fun for our guests. We will recommend them to everyone.
Felix and Fingers did an absolutely amazing job at my wedding. They were professional, read my crowd well, had great song choices, sounded amazing, they were funny and made my event. All my guests loved F&F. I highly recommend these gentlemen and they are well worth the money!!!
We had Emily and Jim, and they duet really well together. Super nice, fun. It was a great dance party!
My husband and I used to go to dueling piano bars all the time when we first met, so that is what we wanted for the wedding. I am 25 and my friends were all for it but my parents were skeptical. They were worried it would be more of a show than a wedding. We had them play quiet music through dinner then more piano upbeat afterwards.
Everything turned out absolutely incredible. They had uplighting for much cheaper than the venue and had piano shells for the keyboards to make them look like grand pianos. It went perfect with our slightly more upscale venue.
The two men coordinated all events with our photographer and videographer. For example before he introduced us for each dance or the cake cutting he made sure the photographer was ready. I had never even though of that! I didn't have to do any running around at all.
We also sent some of our guest requested songs ahead of time so they had a music genre ready. The guys were great with the guests during the wedding. They were fun and playful and not vulgar or offensive. If the dance floor cleared they found a way to get people back on, either through a cheeky comment, change of music, or a game.
Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to because of the pianos. Several guests asked where I found them because they had never seen anything like it before.
If you are on the fence, I say go for it! I would book them again in a heartbeat!
We recently had Felix and Fingers perform at our wedding from the ceremony through the reception, and I cannot express my gratitude enough for how at ease it made me feel to know they were taking care of not only the music but helping to run the show throughout our day. They not only promptly answered all of my questions from the moment we decided we wanted them to be a part of our day, but also had an in depth phone call with us the week of our wedding to go through every detail with us by the minute. I felt so confident leaving the music, announcements, and party in their hands! We had so many guests comment on not only how awesome they were, but also what a special touch having live music added to our day. Whether my husband and I were on the dance floor or out taking photos, greeting family, etc., they kept everything moving and on track and our night would not have been the same without them! I would more than highly recommend Felix and Fingers for your wedding day as they truly brought our party to life!
Felix and Fingers were wonderful to work with! Lots of energy, kept the wedding organized and were very nice guys!
Because We Are HAPPY! Felix & Fingers Dueling Pianos knows how to deliver from start to finish.
Music helps set the tone of a wedding and dueling pianos is something new,fun and interactive for the crowd. We were elated to finding F & F in the Chicagoland area to entertain our April Wedding guests.
All it took was 2 seconds on the phone with Mike to know this business wouldn't disappoint. Impressively, F & F shared a very through timeline tool. It made you feel comfortable that every detail was going to be handled because they already were one step ahead of you with their service. You didn't have to ask or wonder, F & F brought their A-game to the table in advance. In addition Mike & Jessica were:
1. knowledgeable about the wedding entertainment industry,
2. confident in their product,
3. thoughtful and kind throughout every conversation,
4. gave us undivided attention each and every time we had questions or asked for advice along the way - they really made you feel like family :)
Speed up to wedding week, the F & F team checked in and had us complete a questionnaire to help us both know all the in's and out's needed to have a successful day that included Felix & Fingers performing at our ceremony and reception. Mike & Jim were our guys who made it a "tune-tastic" event! Some of our music was dj'd (songs that were a must by a certain artist) while most all others were their true talent shining from the hillside at Orchard Ridge and then inside the Pavilion.
We kept their performance a surprise to our guests, and boy was it! Our friends and family are still raving about it - we had a blast - they were fantastic! Mike & Jim covered song after song - oldies, goodies, new pop, family favorites and....they brought a cow bell...enough said, but it provided for some great laughs and memories! Overall, BEST DAY of our lives and we would love to work with Felix & Fingers again and again.
Thank you for your hospitality!! We give this team the highest recommendation to perform at any kind of event you are hosting. They will take care of you in the planning process and rock out the event in any venue for all fun loving crowds! With no reservations, book Felix & Fingers Dueling Pianos.
Mike, Jessica, Jim & the F & F Team are a home run for excellent entertainment!
Through our relationship, dueling pianos has been our entertainment of choice anywhere we travel. When we got engaged and needed to begin wedding plans, the reception music and entertainment choice we wanted was easily, dueling pianos. We began our search online and found Felix and Fingers and initiated contact more than a year in advance of our wedding date. Communication during that year period was great and they always got back to me in a timely manner if a question popped up. They are very reliable and professional.
When it came time for the wedding, Mike and I spoke on the phone for about an our and went over the whole reception and schedule. He mentioned things that I hadn't even thought of and gave good insight and advice on different options for the reception.
They provided the reception with fun, games, humor, music, and dancing and everyone had a BLAST. I would recommend them to anyone in need of entertainment for an event. Great experience and a great time!!
These guys were amazing!!! They truly enhanced our night and made it one to remember. Mike and Emily added so much personality and energy to the whole evening. They were game to play anything the crowd threw their way, and their own selection of songs kept everybody moving. Their sense of humor and special touches made everything perfect. People can’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed the entertainment! I would highly recommend Felix and Fingers!
My partner and I booked Felix and Fingers for our wedding last month and we couldn't be happier with the quality of music Felix and Fingers provided. Out of all our vendors, they were the easiest to work with and most efficient as well. Any questions that I had, they would get back with me right away. Mike included everything that we wanted at our reception and our guests absolutely loved them! Having a DJ is great but nothing beats live music. If you're considering live music, consider these guys. You will not be disappointed!
I was totally skeptical of the idea of Dueling Pianos when Felix and Fingers was recommended to us by our venue. My main goal for our entertainment was to ensure that the party would be fun and that people would be dancing. So, going on the reviews, the YouTube Videos, and the recommendation of our venue we hired Felix and Fingers for our wedding. I contacted many other bands/musicians and felt that we were going to get the best value for the money from Felix Fingers.
I worked closely with Jessica on my super specific playlist requests for the ceremony and cocktail hour. She was super helpful and professional. I felt like my plans and organization were totally honored by everyone I worked with.
On the day of the wedding, Mike Sherman and Jim were absolutely wonderful. Fearing that I had made a snafu on my rehearsal the night before, they went over the whole agenda with me and put me at ease. They were easy-going and accommodating. With them being in charge of all of the sound and essentially making the order of the whole event happen, I felt pretty care-free.
The entertainment for dancing was fabulous. I had some friends who pretty much danced to every single song. One of my requests was a special song that for my grandma(Wake Up, Little Susie by the Everly Bros.). I had just planned on her hearing it and appreciating the request, but she got out and danced with me! Holy cow...
You can feel very comfortable with your decision to hire Felix and Fingers!
Let's face it, wedding planning is completely overwhelming. And there are SO many choices. So if I can help a bride or groom with their decision for music, here are my two cents:
Don't look any further than Felix and Fingers! These guys KNOW what they're doing. From the moment you book them, they will be there to answer your questions and ease your worries, night or day. And all of our music, ceremony through reception, was covered by F&F, which I found as a huge perk, and guess what? It all went off without a hitch.
Not only that, but my friends and family are STILL talking about how much fun they had at the reception! My aunt said she was "danced out" by the end of the night, and I believe my sister announced she had as much fun at my wedding as she had at hers (huge compliment coming from an older sister!). F&F brought something truly special for our wedding that I honestly believe no DJ could have done for us. Like I said before, don't look any further, these guys know what they're doing, and they're REALLY good at what they do. :)
