23rd Wedding of 2016: Check! Nancy and Henry delivered the goods!!

Venue: Hampshire House, Boston MA

Date: 11-5-16

Couple: Nancy and Henry

Sometimes you just wanna go where everyone knows your name! Welcome to the wedding of Nancy & Henry everyone! Held at the lovely Hampshire House in Downtown Boston – right above the bar Cheers on Beacon Street. I was connected with this couple from the man behind my website actually, Mister Jon Hoffman (Zrayweb). They couldn’t have been easier to work with if they tried! Super mellow and go with the flow and threw a party to remember on this particular Saturday evening.

After several emails and phone calls between us and trusting Jon’s recommendation – Nancy & Henry decided to book me and I was so glad they did. I hadn’t DJ’d the Hampshire House in a couple of years now and it’s seriously such a cool room to be in. So classy and old school feeling, I love it! The ceremony was held right there onsite and they had a live pianist playing all of their ceremony music – such a nice touch for the start of the night.

I took over for a smaller cocktail hour set up on the 3rd floor above us and had a mix of some old school funk and soul going with some old school jazz classics to really fit the mood of this gorgeous elegant room we were in. People seemed to be enjoying it with their fancy cocktails and appetizers.

We all then made our way back downstairs as the room was now flipped from the ceremony set up for dinner. I introduced the wedding party to “Stand By Me” by the legendary Ben E. King and then Nancy and Henry to the classic “You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth” by MeatLoaf. Their first dance was an acoustic version of “Two Hearts” by Bruce Springsteen – which Henry had to actually rip from YouTube as their is no acoustic version of this recorded in studio. It sounded AWESOME though. As everyone was seated from dinner and we had the speeches and toasts, I went into a dinner mix of some old school classic rock from the Stones, Bruce, Van Morrison, etc. along with some new chill indie stuff like Of Monsters & Men, The Lumineers, The XX. It went over very well with this crowd and up next we had the cake cutting to “Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers.

It was time for my favorite part of any wedding – dance party! Kicked things off old school with some Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Beatles and were then into some Top 40 with Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, while dipping into the 80s and 90s with MJ, Whitney Houston, Montell Jordan, and Bell Biv Devoe. The crowd was stellar to play for and grooved along all night!! We closed the night out with Nancy’s request of “Shut Up & Dance” by Walk The Moon sending everyone off on a high note.

Thank-You Nancy & Henry for having me be a part of your big day – it was amazing working with you guys!!

Best wishes to you both and I’m sure I will bump into you soon enough through Jon at some point.
