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!

Thanks Michelle - This was such a great night! We've been back to the boat house a few times since and always think back to how much fun your wedding was :)


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.

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. All of our guests were enthralled by their performance and can't stop talking about them! 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!

We highly recommend Felix & Fingers to anyone looking for live music that also entertains. Mike S. and Greg were exceptional to work with. We had a call the week of the wedding to go over timeline and answer any questions we had. They truly were our wedding coordinator the... Read More day-of. They made sure they were in sync with our other vendors at the reception. They did a great job M.C.'ing the event, as well as keeping the dance floor full and guests entertained. Both were great singers and piano players, and knew how to play all of the song requests that were made. Mike checked in with me regularly at the reception to give me updates on the timeline to make sure we were on schedule. We received countless compliments on them and are beyond happy we chose them to play at our wedding. If you're debating if you should book them or not, do it - you won't regret it! Thank you, Felix & Fingers, for making our wedding that much more special!

Cannot say enough about how wonderful Mike, Robert, and Felix & Fingers were :). From my first phone call with Mike he made a point to put the task of planning a wedding seem less daunting. I remember getting to the end of our first call about pricing and he said - 'call me... Read More anytime, if you can't get ahold of me I'm doing something wrong'. I felt so at ease knowing that he would be there helping to provide the ambiance and entertainment for our wedding night. This company/group really goes the extra mile to make you feel like family and not a burden at all. After booking our event with Felix and Fingers I was regularly emailing with Mrs. Potts, and Mike getting things lined up for our September date. We scheduled our week before phone call and myself being the non music junkie had little input/no but Mike and Robert really took the reigns and made suggestions as to what would fit and what could be tweaked to make the day as perfect as possible. Now the day has come and we are prepping the venue, when in come Mike and Robert - what fun presence they have! These two quickly set up and made sure everything was perfect before guests arrive. They confirmed the timeline and were ready to get down to business - even offering words of encouragement to the MOH and Best Man before their speeches! I know that every single guest appreciated their live music and ability to take requests from things like spice girls to obscure tunes from the 1940s (seriously!). They did a great job of reading the room - and sticking to the 'no play' list which his huge! If you are looking for a FUN, ORIGINAL, and FRIENDLY service, this group is your final stop! Thank you so much!

HIGHLY recommend F&F! We were hesitant due to our tight budget but it was the best decision we made. Service and communication was A+ from the quote to follow-up to night of the wedding. Duncan was PHENOMENAL! Not only did he put on such an amazing show that we heard stories... Read More that neighbors in the small town had their windows opened trying to catch a listen, but he also functioned as the emcee for the night and kept us on our schedule. We didn't have a wedding planner or day-of attendant and the wedding went smoothly, mostly in part thanks to Duncan to having us thoughtfully put together a timeline of the day, review it via telephone and then day of his smiling face would appear and say "5 minutes until 'x' guys". I can't possibly rave about this company enough. My family is still talking about it and even our photographer who shoots only weddings was commenting how impressed she was with Duncan and Felix & Fingers. You won't go wrong with these guys!

Yep, that's me riding an inflatable dinosaur with a star-spangled suit for a 4th of July parade featuring dueling pianos. My name is Mike and it's my pleasure to offer our dueling pianos show as a potential solution for your wedding entertainment! I studied music in Chicago (Chicago College of Performing Arts), played saxophone on cruise ships for 3 years, and have been dueling with pianos ever since. Aside from helping to plan and perform at over 100 weddings each year, I'm a cat person, listen to far too many audio books, and have a wife and son. Dueling means I don't have to grow up :P
