June 2, 2012 – Ryan and Amy’s Wedding

Kazz Music Orchestra at the Knickerbocker Country ClubWe performed for Ryan and Amy’s wedding at the Knickerbocker Country Club, and it was such a perfect event (with a packed dance floor as usual)!  Working with Ryan and Amy was wonderful, and their detailed planning definitely paid off, because it was a fantastic night, and we had a really good time!

One of the highlights for us was having Ryan’s Aunt and Amy’s father sit in with the band on vocals and drums to perform “You Belong To Me” as made famous by Jo Stafford.  Amy’s father was also nice enough to join us again later in the evening on “How Sweet It Is” as well! 

During planning, Amy had written on our planning document that if we knew any Gap Band songs, particularly “You Dropped A Bomb On Me”, that they would go over well with her crowd.  It wasn’t a formal request (since we didnt’ know the song), and we never discussed it.  But, we surprised them by learning the tune and playing it for them.  It was a big hit! 

This was our first time performing at the Knickerbocker Country Club, and according to Rod, who runs the events there, they had never had more than a 5 piece band perform.  So, he was very impressed that we were able to perform as a 7 piece group and manage the volume levels for the room with our band.  Rod and his team were awesome to work with, and I’m hoping that this is the start of a great partnership with the country club! 

Thanks again Ryan and Amy!
