This past Saturday, we played for an AWESOME wedding at The Belvedere Mansion, near Rhinebeck, NY that has a few really cool aspects to it. First, Morgan and Katherine wanted to hear us live before booking our band – fairly common request. So, they tried to catch us at one of our monthly showcases at Groove in NYC, and due to a nasty late season snowstorm impacting their drive into NYC, they only caught the last half of our last song. It was still enough and we were booked!
Fast forward to their wedding day: July 13, 2013. As a band, we had a TON of fun. Andrea and Dan provided piano / guitar music for their ceremony – great classical music. Dan then accompanied one of their guests for an acoustic version of “In My Life” by the Beatles. The guest singer, Woody, sang wonderfully on it!
The reception was definitely one of the most energized ones of the year. We always know it’s going to be fun when we’re playing background music designed to keep people seated and eating, yet the people are up and dancing anyway. Once we got to the real dance music, there was no stopping this group, and it was an incredibly fun night for us!
Today, I just found out from Morgan that their wedding vows video made it to the front page of the New York Times, which I think is pretty cool! Below is a link to their video:
A big congrats to Morgan and Katherine, and thanks very much for having us party with you!
