I have to give my husband credit for finding Felix & Fingers. But, as soon as he said dueling pianos, I was sold! Why? Because we wanted the dance floor to be hopping all night and we knew dueling pianos was the way to go. Think of it this way - a DJ spinning Baby Got Back... Read More will get the young adults on the dance floor, but not the older adults. But, Baby Got Back on the pianos? Everyone is dancing! Communicating with F&F was a breeze. They were responsive, friendly, and organized. They were also willing to go with the flow, which from start to finish was necessary for us. In fact, we booked F&F before even having a venue locked down. The planning process went smoothly and they brought several things to our attention we hadn't thought of, which was greatly appreciated. On the day of the wedding, things didn’t quite go as planned due to the weather being freezing cold on October 4th! However, F&F were flexible and did everything they could to make it seem things were going exactly as planned. F&F played our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception and everything was great. At one point during dinner I did a double take because I thought for sure they had put on a track, but it was them performing! Now, let’s get to the reception. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The dance floor was definitely grooving all night and our guests raved about F&F! They were interactive, funny, talented, and incorporated some unique elements into the reception as well (spoiler alert- cowbell competition). The true testament of a great time? My husband lost his voice and I busted a strap on my dress from busting-a-move all night long. Thank you F&F for a unique, memorable wedding!

Great wedding entertainment!

Felix and Fingers is fantastic! We had never even entertained the idea of live entertainment for our wedding until we saw them perform at a friend's nuptials over the summer; all of a sudden we couldn't stop talking about them. We wanted to wow our guests, and F&F helped us do... Read More that. Are they more expensive than a DJ with a laptop and some speakers? Yes, but it's LIVE entertainment and completely worth it! The planning was easy, we chose the songs we wanted and they either knew them or learned them for us. Mike walked us through the entire day so everything would be smooth and painless. Dave and Emily are amazing entertainers; they play, sing, joke, and have a good time. We wanted our daughter to play a song on her trumpet... no problem! We changed the mother/son dance 10 minutes before it took place (wanted to split the dance between my mom and grandma)... no problem! They even changed the words to the song to fit the relationship difference. We wanted them to re-record the lyrics for our first dance song because we forgot to on the wedding night... no problem! I cannot say enough about how great, easy, and willing to do whatever they are! People in our families are still talking about how great and unique the live entertainment was. Nobody is going to remember the steak they had at your wedding or the photographer, but they will remember the entertainment if it stands out like Felix and Fingers! It's absolutely worth spending a little bit more for what they provide.

Stop Looking Right Now!

Seriously. There's no need to keep looking. Hire Felix and Fingers and stop worrying about the entertainment for your wedding. They will take care of everything and you won't regret a thing. They played our wedding in September and their performance was amazing. We knew we... Read More wanted something different and dueling pianos were perfect for what we had in mind for our wedding. There's nothing like having live piano for the ceremony and Mike and Emily delivered all the way through the reception.

Mike and Jessica worked with us on all of our important details and I did not worry for a second about the entertainment that they would provide. They're personable, kind, funny, and amazingly talented! Best decision ever!

Best. Reception. Ever. I was a little nervous about how our reception would go with Felix & Fingers doing our music. We had seen them before at a winery and had a blast- but as the wedding got closer, I couldn't imagine how dueling pianos would translate to a wedding... Read More reception. Even up through the wedding day, I was resigned to letting it be whatever it would be. But once the music started, I knew it was going to be a great night. They played for our cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing and each different part was perfectly tailored for our needs. They even did a custom mash-up for our first dance that was beautiful and amazing. Our families have a lot of little kids and we wanted to make sure the music would be fun, kid-friendly, and danceable for all. They listened to all of our desires and the music was just what we wanted- it was definitely a heck of a dance party. Even when they would start a song that would clear the dance floor, they would IMMEDIATELY but smoothly transition into another one that would stop everyone in their tracks and get them back out there. The dance floor was full all night. We cannot more highly recommend Felix & Fingers for a wedding reception. Fun, accommodating, friendly, and affordable. We really did have the most fun at a reception that we've ever been at- and thankfully it was ours! :)

Felix and Fingers did our wedding this past summer and we couldn't of been more pleased with our selection of them! From the very start when we were receiving quotes, we knew that we would have a musician group that was organized and on top of things. Once we had hired them,... Read More they were able to help us plan out the reception and give us a great idea of what to expect from them that night. We ended up adding a drummer to the dueling pianos and were really happy with that choice. Their amazing talent of how to play off of a crowd and transition from rock n roll to hip/hop to country is really what made the experience great. Budget wise they were a great selection over a standard live band. We added the mini piano shells to allow the guests to make many requests throughout the night. We had envisioned a wedding where the guests would be dancing the whole night and be able to hear not only our favorite songs, but theirs too. A very professional group and such a unique element to add to a wedding, we were extremely happy with our decision to go with Felix and Fingers. 5 months later we are still hearing from our guests on how much they enjoyed the music! Cheers!

If there were a 100 stars to rate Felix & Fingers, I would give them 100! I cannot rave enough about how amazing F&F are! From my initial conversation with Mike to request a quote, to my last conversation as we said goodbye on my wedding night- it was a great experience! Mike...

Mike and Dave brought an amazing energy to the night, our guests are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding, months later. Even our guests who weren’t into dancing, were so entertained by the show Mike and Dave put on! Dueling pianos was the perfect way to set our wedding a part from the rest of our friends and families, and was worth every penny we spent! My husband and I cannot wait to have another event, so that we can work with Felix & Fingers again!

We had already chosen a unique venue for our wedding, so we thought why not make our entertainment a little unique as well? Hiring Felix and Fingers was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From our very first interaction with them they were professional,... Read More respectful, and we just knew that they wanted to help make the day special for us. Our musicians were Greg Percifield and Jim Gritschke and they were phenomenal! They have great chemistry together and are very talented. Everything about the day got thrown off schedule, and they were both so easy-going about it all. They were willing to change times at the last minute and remained flexible throughout the entire day. And we were so impressed with how quickly they learned the song for our first dance! (It was an uncommon song that we're almost positive they had never heard before.) Before the night began we were certain that our guests would be more of the type to sit back and sing along to the music. We were wrong! Greg and Jim got them dancing and they never stopped! We had countless guests tell us that they loved the pianos. If you're going to go with dueling pianos for your wedding (and we think that you should!) then look no further than Felix and Fingers! You will not be disappointed - and neither will your guests!
