Our performance is a combination of piano/keyboard with backing tracks depending on the specific of the lounge. Our goal is to create a good atmosphere and positive feedback, relying on our skills as musicians and entertainers. The links below are to our Web SITE and our YouTube channel:
A variety song list from golden evergreens, through classic ’70s, 80’s disco hits to today's 90s-00s. The list with the titles is available on request.
The name of the duo matches the smiling faces on the stage. They feel comfortable there. Both believe this is due to the wide variety of contracts in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Enriko is a degree piano player and a lot of experience in classical music, but his passion is computers and computer programs. Thanks to this knowledge, he combines piano with keyboard playing and creates an individual sound of their high-quality backing tracks.
The front face and lead vocal Irena (who can play the accordion too) is most proud of that period of their c ... areer when they have mostly worked for Sheraton & Hilton Hotel chains in Bangkok, Colombo, Ankara, and Algiers. “We played acoustically during the day in the lobby and continued our performance in the night bar in the evening. We met different people with different musical tastes and wanted every guest to discover their song in our program. During this period, we worked very hard, but these are our most memorable moments.”
For the last eight years, their new challenge is the work on MSC cruises. They apprehend that the common language between the different nationalities (usually more than 6) and the musical preferences and ages, is the music.
Irena and Enriko do not like to talk about themselves. They think the well-done job speaks for itself. They enjoy what they do and always try to pass that pleasure to their guests to create a good mood and positive feedback. “The referral letters of our employers who do not hesitate to recommend us and the thankful letters of the guests during the years are a very high estimation. But the happiest moments are at the end of those evenings when our fans chant: We want one more, one more. This excitement is indescribable and the greatest gift for our efforts.”
