The evening was October 19, 2019 at the beautiful country club set for a king and queen to be wed. The Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, was the perfect setting for the perfect couple. Alexandra and Gerald became Mr. Vanderstyne on this evening.
The couple chose the Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment as their band. The band came from New York City to perform for this great celebration.
The jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment entertained the guests as they made their way into the Presidential Room. The guests were so excited after experiencing the intimate ceremony earlier that day at the University of Rochester Interfaith Chapel.
The jazz trio played an assortment of jazz standards and swing selections from the 1950’s. This was the right mix of music for this elegant crowd. The parents of the bride and groom were elated and so happy to see their great planning come together.
The guests then moved to the South Lawn Tent where they were invited to enjoy the wedding reception. And what a bash it was! The evening was filled with high energy and excitement. The guests came ready for a party and quite ready to dance the night away.
First it was important to give Alexandra and Gerald Vanderstyne a grand entrance into the reception room where the guests could cheer them on. The band played the couple’s selected song “Raise Your Glass” by the artist Pink for their bridal party to enter, but they chose the song “Born to Love You” By Lanco as their personal entrance song. The crowd roared as they made their way to the dance floor to have their very first dance as husband and wife. The first dance song performed by the band was “Drunk On You” which was the perfect Country song for a first dance by Luke Bryan. They went right into the next special dance moments with their parents. The bride took a dance with her father to the beautiful song “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder. What a classic and perfect choice for the father looking at his stunning daughter on her wedding day. The groom then escorted his mom to the dance floor and they danced to the song “Most People Are Good” by Luke Bryan. This was a unique and great choice for the moment.
There were also some very special songs that the family asked the band to prepare. The song “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks was a family favorite and also a dedication song for a guest who was celebrating their birthday. But they loved Beyonce too! So “Love On Top” was a song the band made sure to play to have the family on their feet and singing along.
What an amazing night with all guests celebrating late into the evening with the band. The 9 piece band consisted of 4 lead singers, with piano, bass, drums, guitar, sax and trumpet. It was the focal point of the evening and the party was a huge success.
