Dueling Pianos during Kevin’s 50th Birthday

Ten minutes into our first meeting, I knew this was going to be another epic NOVA 535 party! Jeanne was so laid back and easy to work with, a perfect client. A decision maker, who knows how to throw a great party, has the budget to produce it properly yet isn’t spending money on anything frivolous. Her concern is throwing her hubby Kevin an EPIC 50th! And that ladies and gentlemen, she did – Dueling Pianos during Kevin’s 50th Birthday Party!

2014-05-31-Kevin-50th-Birthday-at-NOVA-535-St-Pete-2The Dueling Pianos experience is always extraordinary. Tonight there were 3 gentlemen from Rockin Pianos who rotated out, playing nonstop music for 3 hours straight. Amazing!! What an incredible show. About half way through, most everyone was on stage singing, dancing and even doing the “Mashed Potato”!

Keep in mind that I, Michael S. Novilla, am not a professional photographer, just a guy with a good camera who is learning and growing. These were all shot on my Cannon 6D. If you like what you see here, check out my Instagram Page.

Just another wonderful event here at NOVA 535 Unique Event Space. People always ask “Is NOVA open to the public?” and I explain that 98% of the time NOVA is closed for private events, Weddings, Receptions, Mitzvahs, Film Shoots, Corporate Parties, Fundraisers, Birthdays and such. If you or a friend is looking to rent NOVA 535 for an event, please click here. Thank you and good luck to us all!

What about that 2% you may ask? Well we do open up occasionally for PUBLIC Events…some truly unique and amazing ones, like NOVAWEEN, NOVA NOEL, Sunscreen Film Festival and more.
