Wedding #11/2015 season!

Everyone, say hello to Jeff & Maria. These two tied the knot on August 22nd, 2015 at The Villa in East Bridgewater, Mass. I had a blast getting to know both of them and rock their wedding. Jeff and I share a mutual love for metal and old school hip hop so that was a treat getting to throw in some of that during the dance party (well no metal but hip hop worked very well). I set up outside for their ceremony and the music was provided by the couple to be played while guests were arriving and taking their seats. Jeff gave me MP3’s of Vitamin String Quarter doing covers of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, The White Stripes, and more. It’s always fun to see people in the crowd listen to these songs and then realizing what it is halfway through. The ceremony music consisted of Beatles songs done by the Vitamin String Quarter as well. We lucked out and the rain held off and the ceremony was gorgeous!

While cocktail hour was taking place outside of the main ballroom and the music was provided by the venue for this, I was finishing my final soundcheck inside and going over the names and introductions. While guests made their way in and were all seated I got on the mic and we were off. Introduction the wedding party and parents was awesome – Jeff & Maria had chosen a specific song for each couple being announced from Beatles, to the Notre Damn fight song, Beastie Boys, 2 Pac, and Taylor Swift. The couple was announced to Dick Dale’s “Miserlou” to give it that Pulp Fiction touch. From there they went right into their first dance “Sea of Love” by Cat Power. The ballroom was so nice the way it was decorated and dual fireplaces on each end.

Dinner music was a lot of funk and soul tunes. I tried to play the original songs that Coolio, Dre, etc. sampled in their songs like “Atomic Dog” by George Clinton & “Fantastic Voyage” by Funkadelic. Before the entrees were served was the cake cutting. They chose the Kinks “All Day, All of the Night” and then Jeff had his dance with his mother to “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. They couldn’t have picked better music for everything, it was awesome! Once dinner wrapped up I once again gathered everyones attention and we all sang Happy Birthday to Maria’s father which led us right into the open dance floor. Kicking things off with some old school Jackson 5 and The Contours we were up and running. This crowd was an absolute blast to DJ for. Jeff and his friends were loving the throwbacks of course with Montell Jordan, Naughty By Nature, and Run-DMC but I kept things fresh and new with Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars, Walk The Moon, etc.

The night was concluded with a request by the couple of one of my favorite songs ever “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne.

Thank-you guys endless amounts for choosing me to rock the house!!! Congrats and best wishes on your lives as newlyweds.
