Wedding #4, done and done!

May 24th, 2015 in Manchester VT 3.5 hours from Boston was Alyssa and Max’s wedding held at the 1811 House.   The view of this place was truly breathtaking and the old school rustic vibe from the couple they detailed was perfect. I was hooked up with this couple and gig from a website called Gigzolo. They contacted me seeing I was in the New England/Boston area and first seeing how far I travel and if I know “indie rock music” at all. Well I absolutely do! I was the connected with the couple and since we couldn’t actually meet up because of our locations we were in constant contact via email, phone calls, and Skype just to make sure I was on the same page at all times with their requests for music. I will tell you, this was the most specific wedding playlist I’ve ever arranged in my years of doing weddings and turned out to be hands down one of the best weddings I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of. Alyssa and Max didn’t want the standard big old dance party loud crazy top 40 and “cheesy” wedding songs. Instead they wanted to throw a party, actually hang out and socialize with all of their family and friends but with a really good soundtrack throughout the night. Cocktail hour was all folk rock from Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Ritter, M. Ward, and others. Dinner moved into artists like Joanna Newson, old and early Modest Mouse, old mellow Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, the Shins, etc. The reception part of the night was all indie rock and old school 80s nu-wave like the Smiths, New Order, and as a few people started dancing on their own I did go off the beaten path a little from their playlist and kept it very indie dance pop oriented with Hot Chip, Junior Boys, Empire of the Sun, but kept staying on course with their playlist as best I could as well. What was so great about having such a specific playlist is it introduced me to several new artists and bands! I had never heard of Langhorne Slim, Tennis, or Junip and bough all their albums on iTunes for this event and they’ve been in my home rotation for a few weeks now! Score! Alyssa and Max – you guys were amazing. Your friends were amazing all night and your family (especially the parent toasts) were all amazing. I cannot thank you guys enough for choosing me to represent you in terms of music. Congrats to you both!! (Oh and the cupcake tower, hell yes!)
