Unforgettable Vintage Live Wedding & Event Music
One of the nicest things about the magnificent styles of vintage Twentieth Century music — including retro, deco, mid-century moderne, early swing, big band swing, Old Hollywood and the Great American Songbook is that it’s perfect music for the most memorable wedding and events.
Even when the song is over, the melody lingers on.
We like that!
Dear Judy, thank you for being such a beautiful part of our wedding. Andrew and I fell in love with your timeless voice from the first time we heard it, and we had a great time over the last year getting to know you and working with you to plan our special day! We’ll never forget the way you sang the Everly Brothers’ “Let It Be Me! All the best, Jennifer and Andrew Hung
There’s nothing as memorable as a GORGEOUS wedding with vintage live music. These are the events that live on in memory long after everyone has forgotten how many sequins there were on the tablecloths, or what was on the buffet table — or at the candy stations.
“If we could re-live one night over and over again for the rest of our lives, if would be the night of our daughter’s wedding.” Rand and Barbara Drake
Whitney’s wedding really was a lot of fun. We re-created the feel of an elegant nightclub right out of a movie. A late-model Old Hollywood movie, actually — one that had encouraged those at home to hold on just a little bit longer during the last days of World War II. “Casablanca” was our inspiration. We wanted it to be a surprise for the guests, so for the longest time, the theme was a little secret she and her parents and I shared as we plotted and schemed to delight and thrill a diverse group of families and guests. Our code name for the plan: Stealth Egyptian.
From the “host” who greeted arriving guests in a tall red fez to the table placement and special touches Barbara sewed into the bride’s and bridesmaid’s dresses, everything about that wedding was a work of art. The live early swing Era music the band and I performed all evening put it over the top.
As time goes by (pun intended), the spell that was cast on the occasion of Whitney’s wedding lives on. We have the pictures, and they are of a bunch of people having the time of their lives. And so it is with these lovely events. Whitney is a mother herself now, raising children of her own. But for one lovely, dreamy night…..
This, from a New York City fashion editor. For the last dance, we had played our own ethereal re-mix of New York, New York:
I wanted to drop you a note just to say hello and thank you again. I find myself telling my friends and co-workers about the wedding often. Just yesterday, I was talking about the music with a co-worker and it just brought back so many great feelings and memories, I had to write you a quick note. I clicked through the many pictures and imagine my surprise when I found some of our own wedding, right there! I really cherish the long talks we had leading up to our big day and I truly appreciate everything you and your band have given us. Many thanks and take care, Lyn Montagna Lynch
Music is a very powerful ingredient in the mystery of remebrance.
