May 27, 2012 – Katie and Whit’s Wedding

Hudson Valley Wedding Bands - Woodbury Country Club WeddingWe had the pleasure of performing for Katie and Whit’s wedding at Woodbury Country Club on May 27, 2012.  Absolutely awesome couple to work with, and absolutely amazing evening!

There were many highlights that made this wedding fun for us:  1) Katie and Whit had cutouts of their heads that were circulating at the wedding, so of course Rhonda and Keith had to get their hands on them to make it look like Katie and Whit sang a duet together!

2) As a surprise, Whit contacted me without Katie knowing, and asked us to learn one additional request on top of the 5 that we typically learn for weddings.  The idea was to have a bit of a hoe-down at the reception.  Whit ordered a ton of cowboy hats, and we learned “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks and had everyone at the reception singing along with the band!

3) Katie and Whit requested some very fun songs for us to learn, including a jazzy version of “More Today Than Yesterday” as recorded by Kermit Ruffins, and also, Whit asked if we could do a slower and jazzier version of John Mayer’s “No Such Thing” for him to dance to with his mother.  That was fun because I got to write “big band” style horn parts for a song that wouldn’t typically have any horns in it. 

Overall, it was a very fun night for us!  Congrats to Katie and Whit!
