When There’s a Will, There’s a Way

David and Julienne’s wedding plan was a 400-500 person wedding at the Mister C’s/ ABC Beach Club in Allenhurst, New Jersey. After about a month or so went by, it was clear that a 400+ wedding would be too many people. Without even needing a big discussion on the matter, they were both on the same page of wanting to still get married this year in whatever way we could. After planning their wedding for two years and being together for 10, they did not want to postpone their wedding any longer so they decided on a smaller wedding with only their closest friends and family. The final piece was adding a wedding band that was part of their new exciting vision to set the tone for their very special day.

So when they asked Around Town Entertainment to perform, we couldn’t say no! The couple had to adjust their planned wedding but Around Town Entertainment was there to help ease the stress and create a night filled with songs from some of their favorite artists. Although we knew the most important part of a wedding is the exchanging of vows and the unification of their love for each other, we made a huge effort to perform music that made walking down the aisle a truely magical experience.

All in all, there were no regrets and the wedding went on perfectly as planned. On the day of the wedding on September 13, 2020, David and Julienne were still surrounded by a small group of their closest friends and family at Mister C’s/ ABC Beach Club and that’s all that matters! 

With the musical performance by a pianist from Around Town Entertainment, the ceremony went on as planned. It was a perfect intimate gathering, featuring moments that will forever hold close to the bride and groom’s heart as family and friends witnessed a breathtaking first kiss and eventually celebratory walk out of the building in style to songs from Sugar Ray and Smashmouth!

After the ceremony and taking pictures together, everyone headed outside for fresh cocktails and small bites while the jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment provided the live music entertainment. The trio played a combination of old school blues and pop throwback classics that was sure not to be missed!

Next was the reception where Around Town Entertainment’s Around Town Band worked with David and Julienne to create carefully designed set playlists. Part one featured a 20 minutes live set packed with a mix of pop and R&B artists from Elton John, Alicia Keys, Sade, and Norah Jones for the couple’s grand entrance.

Part two was designed to fulfill David and Julienne’s love for Latin dance. This set included performances of “Bamboléo” Gypsy Kings, “Los lobos” La Bamba, “Bailando” Enrique Iglesias, and many more. Part three was 40-60 minutes of the Studio 54 Disco vibe like Donna Summers, Rick James, and Jackson 5.  To end the night, everyone wanted to hear Michael Jackson and we didn’t refuse! The wedding band kept the guests dancing and sweating with his classics like “Billie Jean” and “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough!”

All in all, this was another successful event 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.

Cute Oceanfront Wedding for Two 150 150 adam Michael

Cute Oceanfront Wedding for Two

On October 4, 2020, we celebrated Lauren and Logan’s wedding at Wave Resort in New Jersey. The pair had a very interesting path on how they met. Logan was a music artist in residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem when the two first interacted at his open studio in Brooklyn.

Logan remembers being very attracted to her, but were both in different times of their lives.  She was a collector while he was an artist, so the dynamics were a bit different. They would bump into each other at events, but would always remain friends. Then, in 2011, he was in Paris and she was in Germany, doing a residency at Monet’s estate, and they finally ended up having dinner together. That was the first time that they had actually been together, alone! From that dinner, it was the first time the two realized there was something there! 

When they got to know each other on a much more personal level. It was just so easy, and everything just flowed!  They even have similar music tastes! Sometimes, love presents itself, but it might be too scary because of other things that are going on in your life at that moment. You don’t want to turn your entire life upside down, but sometimes you just have to take that leap. They did that and the rest was history! 

When they asked us to perform at their wedding, we were very delighted to plan a very special playlist for their day. The day started with a guitarist provided by Around Town Entertainment performing covers of classics during the ceremony with crashing surf, blue skies and white sand surrounding Wave Resort’s beach. This was the picture-perfect backdrop for an oceanside ceremony!

The bride and groom chose “Canon D” as the processional song. Then, the guitarist played a very emotional version of “Uptown Girl” Billy Joel.  After the bride and groom exchanged vows and kissed, Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” was performed as guests cheered and sang to celebrate the joyful moment.  

Next was cocktails and the reception in Wave Resort’s 7,000 sq ft, indoor-outdoor rooftop with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean on the Jersey Shore! In the outside terrace, Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio played throwback 50’s, swing, and even some John Mayer, Tony Bennett, and Etta James! Very classic touch that represented the whole wedding! 

After that, Around Town Entertainment’s A-List Band took the stage to start the reception. The bride and groom had their entrance to the song “Signed, Sealed, and Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. Their first dance was to “Thinking Out Loud” Ed Sheeran. The groom then danced with his mom to “As” by Stevie Wonder. 

When the food was done, the newlyweds had their cake cutting ceremony to more songs from The Beatles and Billy Joel! Then, it was time to dance as the A-List Band performed various hits ranging from Taylor Swift, Pitbull, Miley Cryus, and Mumford and Sons to end the spectacular night! 

Congratulations Lauren and Logan! What an evening!

Courtney and Jeff’s Backyard Wedding 150 150 adam Michael

Courtney and Jeff’s Backyard Wedding

Everyone says that finding your soulmate happens when you least expect it, well they’re right! The story of Courtney and Jeff began when she saw this very handsome fella liking all her Instagram pics. She immediately started liking his back.

Next thing she knows she had about 20 likes. She noticed on his Instagram bio that he had a Facebook. Courtney thought, “how could I not message him?” So she gathered all my strength and sent a message starting with “Hey, what’s up?” Who would’ve known those three small words years later would make me the happiest person alive.

They talked on the phone and FaceTime for about a month until he finally came to visit. They both live in New York, but she’ll never forget the feeling of  him walking up to her door the first time. After just sitting there and talking together for hours they realized that they could definitely see myself with. Little did they know four years later they would be planning the wedding of their dreams and inviting Around Town Entertainment to play their wedding on October 3, 2020. 

So we took a road trip to their home in Slingerlands, New York and performed for their family and friends! It was a very intimate and one of the most memorable performances we have showcased!

The day started with a heartwarming courtyard ceremony in their backyard. The bride and groom chose “You and Me” by Dave Matthews as the processional song, performed by a guitarist from Around Town Entertainment. The bride chose “Back Together” by Jack Johnson as she walked down the grass to kiss her groom. The two kissed and exchanged vows as “Accidentally in Love” by Counting Crows performed during the couple’s special moment.

Then, a jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment delighted guests as they sipped on cocktails on Courtney and Jeff’s patio. Next was the reception in the pergola next to the pool house. They had their first dance to an acoustic version of Beyonce’s Halo performed by Around Town Entertainment’s Alternative Band. The bride also had a very emotional dance with her father to the song “I Loved Her First” by Heartland.  The groom then danced with his mom to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. After dinner, the newlyweds had their cake cutting ceremony while Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” played in the background by the wedding band. 

To end the night, the Alternative Band performed a variety of classic hits like Clean Bandit, The Rolling Stones, Luis Fonzi, and many more! All that said, we could not be happier with how their wedding turned out.  Courtney and Jeff’s expectations were exceeded beyond anything they ever imagined, and we could not be more grateful to play for them.  Their wedding will always hold a special place in the heart of the Around Town Entertainment family.

Smitten in New York 150 150 adam Michael

Smitten in New York

Julie and Silvan Schmitz were smitten or as they so cleverly said it “Schmitten!”

The couple met inCapetown, South Africa. They met in a bar called Ferryman’s at the V&A waterfront when they sat at adjacent tables. Several hours of drinks and conversation later, the group decided to explore more of Capetown together. After enough drinks and delusions of grandeur, a second adventure the following day was proposed. To their surprise, the adventure continued into a 9 hour hike up AND down Table Mountain. They knew this was the beginning of a very special relationship. Julie left Capetown on her travels and Silvan decided to drive several hours to take her to dinner and spend her last day in South Africa with him. As time passed, every day they still spoke. After a month of talking, Julie booked a trip back to South Africa to travel the garden route with Silvan for two weeks. 4 weeks later, Silvan came to New York and they began the beginning of their long distance relationship, traveling every 6 weeks to see each other. The rest was history!

The couple planned a spectacular East Hampton, New York wedding on a sprawling property with the most exquisite scenery, just perfect for a summer wedding day. With horses and stables off to the side of the property, there was just enough down home country vibe to bring the perfect touch of warmth to the upscale Hamptons wedding.
The wedding was tented and adorned with lights that created an enchanted evening.
Adding to the enchantment of course, the bride and groom had to choose the perfect music to accompany the moment. The couple chose the New York City wedding band, the Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment. This is one of the most sought after New York Wedding Bands and the New York wedding entertainment had to be perfection. And it was!
The evening started with a jazz duo that entertained the guests as they arrived and enjoyed the extended two hour cocktail reception. The duo played an eclectic mix of lively songs to set the easy, yet sophisticated vibe for the evening. The guests then moved to the tent where it was time to celebrate the bride and groom in great style! Julie and Silvan made a grand introduction as husband and wife as the band played “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris. They then danced to their chosen first dance song, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. What a great choice! The bride had a special dance with her father to a really uniquely, beautiful song “In Case You Didn’t Know“ by Boyce Avenue. The guests danced the night away to a high energy mix of songs that were both classic and current in feel. This had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. The bride had a very special surprise in store for her new husband. She joined the band to sing a song “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alecia Keys. Everyone was moved by the moment and the band thoroughly enjoyed her performance. The band played the music and the singers from the band became her back up singers. It was truly a great moment.
The band played some other favorites for the bride and groom as well, to include more songs from Coldplay and also the cool pop song “Dance Monkey” by Tones and I.

Around Town Entertainment was honored to perform for this great wedding couple.

Beautiful Outdoor Wedding at Briarcliff Manor 150 150 adam Michael

Beautiful Outdoor Wedding at Briarcliff Manor

Fall weddings in Westchester, NY are a beautiful thing! When you’re surrounded by all those wonderful colors and beautiful people, it’s impossible not to have all the feels in the world! Nicholas and Taylor recently tied the knot at the Briarcliff Manor in the most incredible way. This was certainly one celebration that no one would soon forget!

Nicholas and Taylor met at UC Davis – 10 years ago! Nicholas was well into medical school when they started planning a wedding at The Briarcliff Manor.  He graduated just before they were wed. The Briarcliff Manor was the perfect Westchester backdrop to celebrate and dance the night away to celebrate and begin their own chapter. They requested a very fun and lively playlist and Around Town Entertainment was delighted to make all their special requests a reality!  

The special day on September 20, 2020 began with the bride getting ready at her parent’s house in Briarcliff Manor, New York. As the Ceremony drew closer, Nicholas was full of nerves, but all his worries melted away when he saw Taylor smiling, walking down the aisle towards him. The wedding ceremony was set for the bride and groom to tie the knot within the cozy confines of The Briarcliff Manor, surrounded by their loving family and friends. 

Around Town Entertainment waited in anticipation to welcome the guests into the main event!  First there was a lovely cocktail hour where the guests enjoyed the beautiful main room which served as the inspirational, stunning back drop to the film “Gone With The Wind.”  

The Briarcliff Manor has beauty and grace of your classic manor of the late 1800s. From the hidden staircase to the stunning balcony, Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio provided exciting music to lift the spirits as guests explored the venue and mingled.

The bride and groom were glowing as newlyweds and so excited to have their closest friends and family surround them on this magnificent day.  The bridal party and the parents of the bride and groom waited in anticipation for their grand entrance which was set to celebrate the bride and groom’s special day. 

We could feel Nicholas and Taylor’s romance come alive as the Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment lifted the energy in the Elegant Manor Reception Hall for the main event. The grand foyer featured a sweeping double staircase that took our breath away. The intricate French doors let in natural light, leading guests to an intimate ceremony space where the bride and groom made their grand appearance. 

The Bride and Groom were introduced into the main room to the song  “Bring Them Out” TI.   The parents were also introduced into the reception and had a special introduction as well!  They chose the song “Let’s Get It Started” By the Black Eyed Peas.  The bride and groom chose a classic, emotional song for their very first dance as husband and wife.  They chose “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley.  It was a perfect choice.  The crowd cheered as the couple had this very romantic and intimate moment.  The bride also had a very lovely dance with her father to a unique father and daughter wedding dance song entitled “Daddy’s Angel” by T. Carter.  And the groom escorted his mom to the dance floor to have their own special moment.  They danced to the song “Hero” by Mariah Carey.  The vocalist from the Around Town Band wowed the guests on this one as she hit all of the famous Mariah Carey high notes. 

As the night progressed, the wedding band played “Sugar Sugar” by the Archies for the cake cutting.  The cake was a triple-tiered work of art!  

Taylor and Nicholas gave the band a very specific list of favorite songs.  The band played their favorites to celebrate the night and the guests sang along to all the songs as many of the songs were classic anthems.  There was also a balance and rhythm between the high energy songs and the warm touching ballads that the bride and groom loved.  The guests cheered throughout the night as each song set the mood.  It was amazing! Wow! 

The Around Town Band recognizes the importance of creating the perfect event, so from the first introduction to the day of the event, each client is given specialized attention, which entails customizing music for each event, professional and immediate attention to detail and bringing the exact desired effect to each event.  

Around Town Entertainment was honored to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band.

Congratulations to Nicholas and Taylor!

An Evening at Aria 150 150 adam Michael

An Evening at Aria

Donald and Karly originally met through Tinder in September 2017. They did not realize right away how much they had in common, but it became quickly apparent that they were both giant nerds who both loved video games and the same music! We fell in love with them easily and quickly as soon as they asked Around Town Entertainment to play at their wedding. 

In July 2018, Donald proposed on the last night of a family cruise to Croatia. Karly is a very difficult person to surprise but he managed to pull it off! Through the engagement period, they both built a house together, which was a lot to manage while simultaneously planning a wedding. Jeff and Karly faced these challenges with all of the grace they could muster. Of course, Around Town Entertainment was there with them every step of the way to help plan the music for their special day.

Their wedding day on September 15, 2020 began with heartfelt, handwritten letters to each other, followed by tears, laughs…and eventually toasts! Then came a faux-first look of Doanld and Karly holding hands without actually see each other. Donald started tearing up the moment he felt his hand hold Karly’s. Then came the vows, the rings, the kisses and….the DANCING! 

Bride and groom wrote their own vows! They both ended their vows with the statement “I like you and I love you”, which was so cute on the day of the wedding! Even more fitting was when the pianist from Around Town Entertainment performed Best Day of My Life by American Authors during this entire moment!

After that, the celebration moved to The Grand Hall for the reception where the ambience of ballroom was magical. The views were spectacular and the drinks were flowing. Let’s not forget the Bride and Groom….looking fabulous! 

Around Town Entertainment’s Authority Band was requested to make sure the music went smoothly for the evening. The wedding band was absolutely incredible! There was plenty of room for everyone to dance and mingle while The Authority Band rocked the packed crowd with throwback songs from Prince, Rick Astley, Queen, Journey, and many more! 

The details, flowers and decorations for the wedding ceremony were just as spectacular. Awesome job bride and groom! You nailed it! With the playlist we created for the, the party was off the hook! 

We couldn’t be happier for these two and wish them all the best. Thank you, Donald and Karly for choosing Around Town Entertainment as your wedding band! It was a pleasure to create your special moments and the emotions you share.

An Intimate Greenville Country Club Wedding 150 150 adam Michael

An Intimate Greenville Country Club Wedding

Taylor and Todd’s beautiful September, 12, 2020 Greenville Country Club wedding was filled with so much joy!  We cannot even begin to explain how wonderful these two are and Around Town Entertainment cherished every moment performing at their wedding day.

Taylor and Todd met way back in 7th grade English class. When they were placed in the same group for a book project, they immediately started talking, and, even though they were both shy people. That was the beginning of a friendship that lasted until they started dating about four years later.

We could just go on and on about the beauty of this couple and of all the amazing details that made their day special.  It was obvious that these two are completely adored by all who know and love them. Taylor and Todd are the SWEETEST and KINDEST people!  In addition, they have one of the best parents of all time, who did a great job at sending song requests for the wedding band to play at the main reception!  

The first time we talked with Taylor and Todd, we knew that they were both going to be an ideal couple! Hannah told us several times how much she wanted Around Town Entertainment’s “A-List Band” at her wedding. Whenever we hear that from a couple it makes us so happy because we know they value our music just as much as we do!

They decided to take advantage of the classic indoor ceremony room at Greenville Country Club which we adore!  Greenville Country Club is located in the rolling hills of Northern Delaware. The Clubhouse building situated on one of the highest points in Delaware. The building offers the perfect ambiance for Taylor and Todd’s wedding celebration!

We created a very unique mix for them which included a mix of country to rock classics.  The ceremony was stunning! The wedding pianist provided by Around Town Entertainment starting the day with a beautiful rendition of Here Comes the Bride. The bride looked breathtaking as she walked down the aisle surrounded by bouquets of a variety of flowers that made it outstanding!

One of our favorite moments from the day was the recessional out of the ceremony followed by an epic reception surrounded by all of their friends and family!  The A-List Band performed hits from Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Whitney Houston, The Weekend, and many more!

Needless to say, these guys had a blast celebrating the night away and had a grand exit making an encore pass through the crowd before they headed out for the night!  

To the newlyweds, thank you for inviting Around Town Entertainment to perform at your wedding day!  We wish you both all the best! 

The A-List Band brings high energy experience to every event in Deleware, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The bands elite, talented and studied musicians have toured with some of today’s top artists. They have been featured as artists and musicians in their own right on major records and have graced some of the world’s biggest stages. 

Congrats to Taylor and Todd on their Greenville Country Club wedding! We’re so happy for you!

Timeless Wedding at The Lace Factory 150 150 adam Michael

Timeless Wedding at The Lace Factory

SMILE!!! That is the one word that stands out the most when I think of Devin & Josh’s wedding on September 5, 2020. The entire day, their faces were just lit up with the most infectious smiles, and it truly made for one of our happiest weddings of all time!

Devin and Josh had a vision in mind when it came to their Fall wedding at the incredible Lace Factory. While they knew the general direction they wanted things to go in, we took Devin and Josh’s vision and helped bring it to life. With the help of some crafty & creative ideas and song requests from their family members and friends, we crafted a very special wedding playlist while adding some of our personal touches into the mix as well!

Speaking with Devin and Josh before the planning process also gave Around Town Entertainment a really great idea of how incredible their wedding was going to be. Once the band was around all of their family and friends, the wedding band truly understood why they were always so happy! They certainly had us smiling (and laughing) all day long!

The wedding day was a combination of modern elegance meets vintage. Devin and Josh had had a stunning, timeless look and the day began with an intimate ceremony officiated by one of Devin and Josh’s best friends. Standing in front of a backdrop of beautifully draped chiffon panels, Devin and Josh committed to spending the rest of their lives together with the pianist from Around Town Entertainment’s pianist playing a cover of “Wonderwall” by Oasis with their friends and family in attendance.

The couple wanted to keep it super intimate, so they wrote their own vows and exchanged roses as a symbol that whenever words can’t be found or a common ground cannot be met, the rose is to be placed somewhere in the house as a sign of our promise and vow to choose and love each other every single day through the good and bad. How sweet!

After that, guests boarded the Essex Steam Train to enjoy the views on their way to the reception at the Lace Factory while the bride and groom took a car service to enjoy their first moments of newlywed bliss. 

Inside the expansive room at The Lace Factory, a blend of rustic and industrial elements created a romantic aesthetic with the help of string lights, which were strung around the exposed beams on the ceiling. The natural beauty of the space didn’t require much added decor, so to bring the room to life, Devin and Josh put small floral arrangements in used wine bottles on tables atop a round slice of wood, which featured simple greens and flowers with white petals. To find their seats, each guest had a shot glass with their name on it that was filled with sangria. “Once you found your seat, you took the shot and saved the glass,” says Devin.

After a seated dinner and cocktails, Devin and Josh had their first dance to Brad Paisley’s “Then” performed by  Around Town Entertainment’s Authority Band. And then, the wedding party had a shocking surprise in store for the newlyweds. With top hats in hand, the entire group choreographed a dance to a compilation of songs from James Taylor. 

For the rest of the evening, The Authority Band played all of their favorite songs from Brian McKnight to All American Rejects, which kept guests on the dance floor all night long. “Naturally, we couldn’t keep our hands off of each other, and we didn’t part the entire night,” said Josh. “It was arguably the best day of our lives.”

Around Town Entertainment was honored to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band.

Congratulations Devin and Josh!

The Kings and Queens of Oheka Castle 150 150 adam Michael

The Kings and Queens of Oheka Castle

 

Erika and Vincent’s beautiful Oheka Castle wedding on June 14, 2019 was truly a wonderful day to be a part of! Around Town Entertainment loved every single moment of playing in this one!  This beautiful wedding venue in Long Island, NY is incredible. It’s the perfect historic venue for classic wedding days, like Erika and Vincent’s was! 

We waited for months to play at this wedding! It is one of America’s grandest castles and was a treat to play in a location with as much history as the golden age of the Roaring Twenties. And with just one wedding a day, OHEKA truly was a castle we could call our own!

With the help of the bride and groom, Around Town Entertainment planned a stunning wedding day playlist to celebrate Caroline and Jay’s very special day. With all-white florals, pale pink bridesmaid gowns, and a classic car for portraits, we seriously loved everything about this wedding! 

The day began with all of the getting ready and Erika surprised Vincent with a Rolex he wore proudly all day long. The two met for the first time at the aisle during their classic church ceremony and then headed back to Oheka Castle for portraits. This iconic property was full of perfect locations for their portraits and bridal party portraits! The classic car even fit the look of the estate perfectly!

After plenty of portraits, it was time to bring Caroline and Jay into their reception. Their black tie theme was elegant to the max! White flowers and lanterns lined the staircase of the Castle and their centerpieces mirrored the feeling as the A-List Band from Around Town Entertainment dazzled guests with star-studded hits ranging from Taylor Swift to My Chemical Romance.  

As The A-List Band played in the background, the bridal party entered to “Marry Me” by Train, while the bride and groom entered to “Beautiful Day,” by U2 and danced their first dance to “Thousand Years” by Christina Perry  Father and daughter danced to “93 Million Miles” by Jason Mraz, while mother and son danced to “All-Star” by Smash Mouth.

Guests also enjoyed dancing to Frank Sinatra, Sugar Ray, Billy Joel, and of course, Whitney Houston.  Everyone enjoyed the music, the dancing and the fun!

With their guests, Erika and Vincent danced the night away celebrating!! From start to finish the wedding band kept the vibe going and the guests were so happy! The wedding couldn’t have been any more perfect! OHEKA was a fairytale! 

As a band, we have re-lived this day many times in our heads!  

The A-List Band recognizes the importance of creating the perfect event, so from the first introduction to the day of the event, each client is given specialized attention, which entails customizing music for each event, professional and immediate attention to detail and bringing the exact desired effect to each event.  

Around Town Entertainment was honored to have been chosen as the best NY wedding band, NJ wedding band, and CT wedding band.

Congratulations to you two! What a seriously perfect day!
