First Time at The Grove

First Time at The Grove 150 150 adam Michael

Marissa Amari & Daniel DeMola’s love story began unexpectedly as most do. While impatiently waiting for the bartender at McSwiggins to get Marissa a drink, she looked over and saw Danny at the other side of the bar also waiting. She went up to him and said “if the bartender comes to you first can you order my drink?” They spent the rest of the night throwing a couple back and getting to know each other.  

A few days later Danny texted Marissa and asked her to go out for dinner at the Stewed Cow in Hoboken. After that first date they knew there was something special between them… and now they are … married! 

The proposal was by far one of the most epic and breathtaking moments we have seen. Danny planned a vacation in Switzerland for October 2018. Marissa had no idea that this vacation was Danny’s plan to ask her to spend forever with him. After hiking up the Kleine Scheidegg Mountain, Danny took Marissa by the biggest surprise of her life and popped the question! 

We’re so happy they picked Around Town Entertainment to play for their special day on January 11, 2020 at The Grove in New Jersey. The Grove is a truly unique and breathtaking venue for all of life’s memorable events. This was our first time playing here!

The ceremony was held at The Grove’s Historic Personette House. It is registered with the National Library of Congress and is one of the oldest homes in the country.  The space included a bespoke bridal suite, multiple fireplaces, a dining and living area, and a fully appointed kitchen. The Historic Personette House provided a beautiful backdrop for this wedding. 

Around Town Entertainment supplied a pianist as the bride and groom exchanged their vows to songs like “Latch” by Disclosure and “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. It was an amazing sight to see!

After the ceremony, the wedding band, Around Town Band, set the mood for the reception. The bride and groom took center stage in the main room. First, the NY wedding band introduced the newly married couple by playing “Now That We Found Love” by Heavy d & The Boyz and “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding. Then they had their first dance to “Better Today” by Coffee Anderson. After that, the father danced with his daughter while the band played a mashup of “Dance with My Daughter/Let’s get it started” by Jason Blaine/Black Eyed Peas. The mother and son dance followed as the wedding band played, “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

After the dinner and toasts, the party continued on the dance floor as the band played songs like “Hey look Ma I Made it” by Panic at the Disco, “Happier” by Marshmello, and “Close to Me” by Ellie Goulding. What a night!

This was another stunning wedding by Around Town Entertainment. Around Town Entertainment is proud to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band in 2020.

Knocked it Out of the Park…SAVOY ESTATE!

Knocked it Out of the Park…SAVOY ESTATE! 150 150 adam Michael

Ethan and Faith soon to be titled Mr. and Mrs. Geron had a smash of a wedding at the elegant Park Savoy Estate in Florham Park, New Jersey.  The couple selected the After Party Band from Around Town Entertainment to provide a night of music, celebration and dancing.

It all began after the couple exchanged their vows and said, “I Do!”  The guests were invited to begin the night with cocktails, laughter and music.  A musical trio of keyboard, bass and guitar from Around Town Entertainment delighted the guests with the bride and groom’s requested hour of Beatles hits.   What a great way to start a wedding with songs like “Here Comes The Sun” “Eleanor Rigby” and “She’s Got A Way.”

When looking for the best New Jersey wedding music a couple has to start by viewing one hundred percent live music videos on the Around Town Entertainment website.  There they can find thirty minutes of video for each of the five New York wedding bands.   Ethan and Faith fell in love with the vocalists from the After Party Band, especially the lead vocalist who authentically wailed a Whitney Houston song.    The band was the hit of the night playing continuous live music for the full reception as the guests rocked the dance floor.

It all started with the explosive bride and groom introduction into the grand ballroom.  The band played the ever so popular song, “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall and Oats.  The crowd really did go wild as they screamed for the newlyweds.  But we cannot forget the most intimate moments for the bride and groom that came next.   The couple had their very first dance to the unique and beautiful song “Til Kingdom Come” by Coldplay.  The bride then had a dance with her dad to the cool country song “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker.   The groom danced with his mom to the song “I Love You For Sentimental Reasons” the Linda Ronstadt version.  It was a very sweet and emotion time of the evening for this beautiful couple and their parents.

Mr. and Mrs. Geron loved the classic styles and artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Abba, Billy Joel and of course the Beatles.  The NJ wedding band definitely delivered as promised on all the above.  The guests really loved these classics, and everyone cheered the band on as they performed each favorite song hit.  Whether it was the famous Bruce song, “Glory Days,” a Jersey favorite, or “Dancing Queen” or “Satisfaction,” the dance floor was always packed with an elated crowd.

Around Town Entertainment was honored and thrilled to be part of this fabulous park wedding at the elegant New Jersey wedding venue, the Park Savoy Estate.  What a thrill for us to be part of the defining moments for this bride and groom to set off and begin the rest of their lives together.  And they seemed so perfect for other.  We couldn’t be happier for them.  Around Town Entertainment www.aroundtownent.com

Love Drunk in Williamsburg

Love Drunk in Williamsburg 150 150 adam Michael

On August 23, 2019, Hae Lee and Eugene Baek had their beautiful wedding ceremony held at the Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg. Around Town Entertainment’s Around Town Band provided the music for the night. We met the cute couple back in 2016 so we were delighted to perform for their special night! 

Winery weddings are classy: everyone knows that. But Brooklyn Winery is very different! Brooklyn Winery sources grapes from boutique vineyards across the country. The wines are delicious and they produce premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. This was the perfect choice for weddings since it can hold up to 100 to 165 guests and is housed in an 8,000 square foot space in Williamsburg! 

Around Town Entertainment’s pianist set the tone right from the outset and showed all guests a celebration that will be an event they remember forever. The ceremony took place in one of the most stunning spots within the venue: the Atrium, an airy space that boasts a gorgeous glass roof and a hanging succulent wall garden. The pianist played “Canon in D”, “The Book of Love”  by Gavin Mikhail, “Ordinary People” by John Legend, and “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen as the couple exchanged their wedding vows and officially became newlyweds.

After that, it was time to celebrate with wine! The wines were delicious and the Brooklyn Winery produced premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. You can even tour the winery to learn about how their wines are produced! 

As we explored the winery, we discovered more and more unique design elements. The building was meticulously curated to imbue a space with a warm and romantic ambience. Inside, you’ll find beautiful barn wood walls, a zinc-topped wine bar, vintage 1940’s wallpaper, midcentury fixtures, and many other one-of-a-kind details throughout. As guests drank and mingled, they were treated to a performance from Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio.

Next, the guests moved into the The Harvest Room for the reception. It featured stainless steel tanks used for aging wine as well as a glass wall that looks into the Barrel Room. No wedding is complete without exquisite reception and this  experience! 

The bride and groom strolled into The Harvest Room while Around Town Band played “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Jubel, Neimy and “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire. The newlyweds first dance was to “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran ft. Beyonce.  The father danced with his son to One Call Away by Charlie Puth. The mother danced with her daughter to “La Vie En Rose” by Edith Piaf. 

The wedding cuisine was handled in-house by Executive Chef Michael Gordon which was fantastic! Chef Gordon has worked at New York culinary institutions such as Bouley and the Mandarin Oriental, bringing his expertise to our seasonal selections. The elegant wedding menu focused on market-fresh ingredients that left us wanting more! There was even an interactive raw bar, specialty cocktail, wine bottle favors, and much more!

When dinner and dessert were finished, it was time to continue dancing! The wedding band Around Town Band got the energy going while guests packed the dance floor. They played numerous hits including “Senorita” and “Lost in Japan” by Shawn Medes to close out this amazing night!

This was another beautiful showcase by Around Town Entertainment. Around Town Entertainment is proud to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band in 2020. Voted as one of the best wedding bands in New York City, Around Town Entertainment is known for creating a truly magical atmosphere at each NYC event! All completely based off of client 5 star ratings!

Next, the wedding band performed “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong while the parents took their first dance with the newlyweds. 

Rod’s Steak & Seafood Grille and GK’s Red Dog Tavern provided the catering for the night. We overheard many compliments about the food from guests. Yes, they were all very delicious! As dinner finished, guests were lined up for the cake cutting as the band played “How Sweet It Is” by Marvin Gaye. The rest of the evening was spent dancing dancing under the stars to songs like “Welcome to Miami” by Will Smith, “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid, “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard, “Take Me Home Tonight” by Eddie Money, “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada, “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Toploader, and  “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake.

When a bride and groom is looking to have the best of the best, Abigail Kirsch is a name that always comes up!   Around Town Entertainment has partnered with Abigail Kirsch on some of the most elaborate New York, Connecticut and New Jersey weddings.   And on March 14, 2020 we had the pleasure of joining Abigail Kirsch at the Loading Dock in Stamford, Connecticut in creating the most spectacular wedding for our bride and groom Rachel and Christopher.Christopher and Rachel were so excited to begin their dream story together by inviting their favorite friends and family to join them on in celebration.   They were elated to have the Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment to entertain their guests throughout the evening.

The night began with a rush of excited guests who were invited to witness the couple’s sweet vows to each other.  The clients chose a beautiful solo pianist from Around Town Entertainment to play the soft inviting music as guests were being seated.  The pianist also played the ceremony songs for most intimate moments as the bridal party walked down the isle and as the bride walked to meet her future husband.

The couple selected unique songs that showed both their fun and spirited side while also bringing a touch of the wedding classic as well.  The bridal party walked in with Tom Petty’s song “Wildflowers.”  The bride chose the traditional classic wedding song, “The Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride)” as she walked down the aisle beaming.   They concluded with the song from Jurassic Park!  How fun!

The guests enjoy signature cocktails and great conversation as the jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment created the perfect atmosphere.  The music flowed, the drinks flowed and the guests were delighted.  It was sophistication at it’s best.

Then it was time for the celebration to really set off.  Guests were escorted to dinner where the full seven piece Ct Wedding band from Around Town Entertainment really set the tone for what was going to be quite the dance party.   Guests couldn’t contain their excitement as they danced their way into the space.  The crowd cheered as the bride and groom and their bridal party were given the grand entrance welcome.  The band played the couple’s favorite songs for this moment.  The powerful energy of Beyonce and Miley Cyrus were in the room as the band played “Crazy In Love” and “Party In The USA.”

It became clear that Rachel and Christopher were huge fans of the music from the 90’s.  Boy bands and Britney Spears were at the top of their list of favorites.   So the Around Town Band delivered!  The band played “Hit Me Baby,” “Bye Bye Bye,” “I Want It That Way,” and even “Wanna Be” by the Spice Girls.

There was no shortage of requests for the current top 40 hits as well.  So the band happily played the bride and groom’s favorite artists Lizzo, Camilla Cabello and Shawn Mendez.

Hot Summer in Tarrytown

Hot Summer in Tarrytown 150 150 adam Michael

Vicki Reagan & Tom Youkhateh’s wedding in Summer 2019 was a scorcher! Overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, New York, Around Town Entertainment had the opportunity to perform at Lyndhurst Mansion, one of America’s finest Gothic Revival mansions. Designed in 1838 by Alexander Jackson Davis, its architectural brilliance was the perfect space to hold a wedding in the summer.  
The Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion set the stage for an unforgettable wedding celebration. The Mansion, and its plethora of architectural angles, serves as the backdrop for our wedding band and event photography like no other. Lyndhurst’s sweeping great lawn also had tons of picturesque backdrops of the fairy-tale mansion and river views. 
The grounds at Lyndhurst survive were also an outstanding example of 19th century landscape design, with the Rose Garden serving as a pristine focal point for Vicki and Tom’s ceremony.  Constructed in 1911 by Helen Miller Gould, the Rose Garden was restored by the Garden Club of Irvington on the Hudson in the 1960s and has been maintained by them ever since. In spectacular full bloom during the month of June, we were treated with antique, climbing, shrub and many varieties of hybrid roses as we walked in. It was truly a stunning location, with its original stone gazebo and abundant breathtaking roses for a spacious open air ceremony.A pianist provided by Around Town Entertainment, played “All You Need is Love” and “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles as the Bride and Groom entered the Rose Garden. Next up, the bride came out to “Thinking Out Loud”  by Ed Sheeran. The recession song was “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons.

On the eastside of the Mansion, overlooking the Tappan Zee Bridge and the Hudson River, the Veranda was an ideal location for the cocktail hour. As Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio played, it felt like a setting made perfect for natural conversation, semi-enclosed, beneath the open sky.  

The reception was held at the courtyard of the Carriage complex, originally constructed in the 1860s. Under a beautiful tent and surrounded by vintage cobblestone, guests were treated with a remarkable dinner and dancing. The Courtyard tent’s white-wall canvas felt as if dreams come to life. The wedding entertainment for the night, Authority Band, provided the music while guests danced in a flower-filled courtyard to songs like “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran & Beyonce, and “My Wish” by Rascal Flats.

Fairy tales do come true at Lyndhurst. This night was unforgettable and magical.  We can’t wait to perform here again and play at your biggest and best day of your life.

Classic Wedding in Delaware

Classic Wedding in Delaware 150 150 adam Michael

When we first met Alexandra Bakerian and Daniel Zwiren in July 2019, we were drawn by their instant chemistry.  We’ve had many wedding clients before, but nothing as special as this one. It reminded us of what love is really supposed to look like. Performing for them seemed like natural chemistry. Their romance and our music seemed like an improbable connection. 

They held their reception at the Hotel DuPont, which held personal significance. Alex’s father was the former president of the Delaware Bankers Association and often hosted events at the iconic downtown establishment, including his retirement party. The hotel’s storied elegance blew Dan away, and Alex agreed. “It’s just a place that, whenever you walk through the door, you feel like you’re going into a different era and time,” she says.

As an architectural icon, Hotel Du Pont has many stories to tell. The hotel remains committed to retaining the warmth and splendor that have made it so highly regarded for almost a century. We had the pleasure to step inside to find ourselves transported back to a time of craftsmanship and courtesy, of ease and elegance, sophistication and style, an era when people knew how to travel in style and expected the very best. Those values are preserved today in our band’s performances we provide each and every guest.

The Authority Band provided by Around Town Entertainment took the stage in the Gold Ballroom. They played “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO to introduce the Bride’s party. Then, they transitioned into “Yeah 3x” by Chris Brown as the Bride and Groom made their first appearance as a married couple. The wedding band then played “Nothing Can Change This Love” by Sam Cooke during the couple’s first dance. Next, the siblings had their own spotlight to “Nobody Knows” by The Lumineers. Finally, the mother and son showed their fancy footwork while the band played “Forever Young”  by Rod Stewart. 

We were treated with a charming taste of sophistication with Hotel Du Pont’s gourmet catering options. The modern fare and classic dishes included delectable entrées like Saffron Marinated Chicken, New York Strips, and Bronizo with Shrimp Scampi! For dessert, we were offered decadent plates of Baked Alaska, Bananas Foster, Czarina Parfait and more! 

It was a true party, as Authority Band continued to perform hits like “All of Me” by John Legend, “Having a Party” by Sam Cooke, and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding. At the end of the night, Alex said something memorable- “When I think back to my wedding day, what stands out is just pure classic joy.”

Wild Night at The Skylark

Wild Night at The Skylark 150 150 adam Michael

Another memorable night!  Andrew Jones and Jennifer Rice invited us out to play at their April 2019 wedding reception at The Skylark in New York City. Set thirty floors high up in the heart of Midtown, Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio kicked off the night by belting out classic piano melodies. Guests paired each bar bite with the Skylark’s signature cocktails including The Coco. Also, the Love Bird cocktail special was quite delicious with it’s mix of Hennessy, Creme de Cassis, Villa Sandi Prosecco Passion Fruit topped with edible flowers. The panoramic views of the Hudson River, Times Square, and The Empire State Building added the perfect touch before the sun set for the evening. 

After cocktails, everyone moved into the Main Lounge for the reception. The After Party Band provided by Around Town Entertainment started by performing “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Ashford and Simpson for the Bride and Groom’s entrance. Then, the wedding band played a rendition of “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. Very appropriate for the couple’s first dance! Next, the parents shared the dance floor with their son and daughter while the wedding band played “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. 

Drinks and food at The Skylark are as distinctive as the space itself! The pre-dishes included a variety of small plates – perfect starters for the evening. Guests were treated with an elite dining experience. Over dinner, we heard comments like “best I’ve ever had” and “out of this world.” The bride and groom and family were treated like royalty! And of course, no wedding or birthday, would be complete without cake! 

The couple shared their first slice while guests sang along to “L.O.V.E.” by Frank Sinatra. The celebration continued well beyond the night. The night ended with the band’s cover of “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. What a show! 

This was another beautiful showcase by Around Town Entertainment. Around Town Entertainment is proud to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band in 2020.
