This four piece ensemble brings the experience of stumbling into a great roadhouse bar band with the same quality and professionalism as any of our other groups. Fronted by a dynamic lead singer and harmonica player, this group’s material ranges from soul classics from artists like the Temptations, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding to rock and roll from bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton.
Solo Guitar Wedding Ceremony
The elegance and timelessness of the solo guitar make it a great choice for both traditional and non-traditional ceremonies. We work closely with the couple and the officiant to create the perfect solo guitar wedding program. Here are a few suggestions based on real NYC weddings:
Prelude: Bach’s Loure is a great choice for a prelude piece. The simple melody really calls out to your guests and lets everyone know that something special is about to take place and the slow tempo has a soothing quality that helps to calm any pre-wedding jitters and pull the focus of the room toward the beauty around them.
Processional: Other than “The Wedding March” aka “Here Comes the Bride,” this Canon is arguably the most popular processional. There are many great choices, but this is always a favorite.
Featured Music: This music can be used in between a reading or at any other meditative point in the ceremony. We really encourage couple’s to express themselves in this selection, and we’ve included three very different examples in this playlist. Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” is full of passion and mystique, “Angeline the Baker” has a beautiful folk quality, and “I Won’t Give Up” is an instrumental version of the very popular and very wedding appropriate Jason Mraz song.
Recessional: Canarios is a light and joyful piece. It is full of energy and the perfect music to skip down the aisle as a newly married couple!
**If your ceremony is taking place “on-site” live music is absolutely essential. Not only does the music add to the personality and warmth of your ceremony, but our musicians can provide essential cues for both the couple and your guests with a level of accuracy and flexibility which cannot be achieved through recorded music.
We were thrilled to perform for Shining Service Worldwide’s Super Bowl Blvd event at Toshiba Skybox in Times Square. Check out our music and live shots of the band at the start and close of this great video. This fabulous charity event was covered by WPIX and also featured the Gotham City Cheerleaders.
We partnered with Michelle Elaine Weddings, and she made our job a breeze. This couple’s incredible program of special musical requests included the theme from Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones, Back to the Future, and Indiana Jones. I wasn’t completely sure how this repertoire would go over, but it was a tremendous success. I have never had more comments from guests at a wedding ceremony! Their eclectic and cinematic music created the perfect soundtrack to their long and beautiful love story. Major thanks to Chaz Cruz for capturing the moments so beautifully.
We provide light audio support to many of our clients who have hired one of our bands for live music. Whether someone is looking for a microphone for the readings and officiant to use at an outdoor wedding or a non-profit is interested in having a microphone on hand for speeches we are happy to provide our state of the art system.
On occasion, we will provide this service separate from our live music. The first event pictured is from a very chic charity event held in the Hamptons. The client needed light background music throughout the evening and we provided two speaker systems to provide coverage both on a terrace and in a tented area below. The second picture is of a wedding ceremony at the university club. Here we provided sound for our musicians, vocal and guitar, as well as the officiant and family members giving readings. While our trio moved to an adjacent room for cocktails, the audio system and technician jumped back into action for toasts during the seated dinner.
Our Bose L1 Speaker system is the high-end industry standard. It projects in 3-D and its uncanny ability to blend into the scenery makes it a favorite among photographers and clients alike.
Whether we are provided this a la carte or in combination with our live music our attention to detail and professionalism insures that our clients audio needs will be thoroughly taken care of. If the needs of the event go beyond our capabilities we can absolutely refer to one of our partners in the industry.
What a beautiful day to look out over Soho! This very chic wedding took place atop the Soho Grand Hotel’s Loft North Terrace. We offered solo guitar for the pre-ceremony and a trio of Guitar, Bass, and Drums for the cocktail hour. There is nothing like having a live band for the first dance and then letting the DJ pick-up without missing a beat. Special thanks to Joseph Delgado Photography, for the beautiful pictures! We’d also like to thank Sugar Flower Cake Shop, both for introducing us to this wonderful couple and baking them a beautiful and delicious wedding cake.
