We played a Dueling Pianos Wedding Reception this last weekend. Great couple. They got married after meeting online. This seems to be a new trend and understandably so. Our 2nd son met his girlfriend online. They’re a wonderful couple.
So were this week’s bride and groom. Jenn and Brandon had a relaxed and memorable night with their family and friends.
As a leader of wedding music bands, I find it essential to be able to provide a wide variety of songs for your guests. We almost always have folks of multiple ages; Grandparents on down to toddlers and newborns to everyone in between.
Plus, we’ve got to get the first dance requests and the dedications all squared away. Sometimes the couple wants traditional songs; sometimes they need obscure hits from long ago. We can play them with the band or with a solo piano player. Other times we just play the recording on our DJ rig.
This week’s wedding couple were totally chill. Jenn told me, “I want 3 things at my wedding. Good food, good drinks and good music.” Well, we took care of one those for her.
She told me she and Brandon could not agree on a song selection for their First Dance. They had eclectic tastes in music and yet they couldn’t agree on anything they found. Then one night they were sitting on the couch watching videos and this song came on.
It definitely got lots of laughs from their friends and the song set the tone for the rest of the wedding reception entertainment.
Thank you for including us in a most intimate family affair. It is an honor to be able to perform music for a living. It is an even bigger honor being selected to play music for you on such a special and memorable evening.
