Saturday, May 2, 2015—Klein/Kelly Wedding in Jersey City, NJ—Around Town Band

The month of May kicked off with the Klein/Kelly wedding in Jersey City at the Hyatt Regency.  The bridal couple chose “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke for their party’s entrance song, with “I Gotta Feelin” by the Black Eyed Peas for the couple’s entrance.  Despite the uptown beat of their entrance, the new couple’s first dance was performed to “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” a beautiful and traditional slow ballad originally performed by Elvis Presley.  Father and daughter danced to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” while mother and son danced to “When I Need You.”  The entire party grooved through the evening to great music including “Everything in Between,” a song especially written by the bride for the groom!  Other great musical selections included “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, “The Club Can’t Even Handle Me Right Now,” by Flo Rida, and “Fly Me To the Moon” by Frank Sinatra.  Everyone had a great time and danced the night away to fantastic music!
