Felix and Fingers began when Dave Radford and Mike Potts came together for the first time in 2010 at a Chicago fundraiser (The Chill Event) for respiratory health. Dave had recently garnered himself a Top Ten Male Finalist position on American Idol, meanwhile Mike had spent the last few years touring the world as a professional musician on cruise ships. Now, both back in the Chicago suburbs, the timing was right to introduce Chicago and the Midwest to their own unique take on Dueling Pianos.
