A Visit to Indian Trail Club

Jennie and Jason looked amazing on their big day! One of the beautiful days New York has seen in quite some time!

Jennie and Jason had a great crowd of all ages who danced the night away. They chose the Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment for their wedding. The wedding ceremony and celebration were at the New York wedding venue, Indian Trail Club.

Working alongside the Indian Trail Club for the evening was joyous. The music and drinks flowed beautifully, and so did the champagne as everyone poured onto the dance floor for their favorite songs from Van Morrison to Michael Buble! Such a beautiful day with waterfront views seen through their floor to ceiling windows and with an overall stunning layout.

Indian Trail Club is a private country club located in Franklin Lakes with lakefront views. They only host one wedding at a time, ensuring that the lake house is yours for the day. The sophisticated and rustic property is embellished with stunning trees and colorful flowers. At Indian Trail Club, all guests experienced gracious service and flavorful cuisine.

Everyone mingled on The Terrace with lake views and charming natural surroundings as the Around Town Band band played hit after hit. The bride and groom chose “I’ll Make Love to You” by Boyz to Men for the wedding processional song and the bride chose “I Can Love You Like That” by All 4 One for her processional wedding bride’s song. For the wedding recessional song, they chose “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers. After the jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment serenaded the guests during the cocktail hour, the excited crowd moved to the reception.

The New York wedding entertainment Around Town Entertainment, welcomed the bride and groom into their wedding entrance song “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers. This was also their first official wedding dance song. For the wedding parent dance songs, they chose “I Choose You” by Mario. There was also a jubilant Hora that started the exciting dance event!

The crowd danced the night away to all their favorite songs including the bride’s requested songs “I Swear” by All 4 One and “Back at One” by Brian McKnight. The evening began with an elegant jazz trio for the cocktail hour.  Then all guests moved into the reception where the band literally played every style of music in the book, including some of their special song requests.

The bride and groom really wanted classic songs from Coldplay, John Mayer, and pretty much through the decades up to the most current top 40 songs. The dance floor was packed the moment the band started the dance set. Even as the main course was being served, the guests just kept dancing!

The Around Town Band and Around Town Entertainment would like to thank Jennie and Jason and their families for allowing us to be part of their special day. What an exciting night celebrating the wedding of these two amazing people!

We wish them all the best in their lifetime together!

You’ve Got Mail! 150 150 adam Michael

You’ve Got Mail!

Diane, 30, who works in public relations, and Jeffrey, 26, a graduate student in philosophy at SUNY, both from Brooklyn, met after he answered her posting on Craigslist. When Diane told us how she met boyfriend Jeffrey through Craigslist, we had to ask for the entire story!  

Finding love – or even a quick fling – was not Diane’s primary motivation when she placed the ad for a roommate in her leased Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone. Around 35 people responded, and Diane found herself particularly interested in the witty response of Jeffrey, a philosophy student recently back from studying in Germany. It was rather awkward, because Jeffrey ended up coming to see the apartment at the same time as Diane’s cousin.

But Diane loved his tenacity. He made some joke about anticipating a fight to the death, which really made her laugh. She liked him because he was smart, good-looking and kind of sweet. That night, she told a girlfriend she had a crush on Roman. At first, she didn’t want to offer him the room because she knew that it could be a romance killer.  

In the end, it wasn’t an issue! Diane’s cousin decided he wanted to move in after all. He was family, so Diane decided to keep with the original plan. She eventually called up Jeffrey to tell him the news but she was happy to show him around the neighborhood. Jeffrey was disappointed he didn’t get the room, but gladly took the tour as a consolation prize. We are so glad he did! 

On December 1, 2019, Jeffrey and Diane decided to get married! They invited Around Town Entertainment to play at the wedding at the very romantic Le Chateau. Le Chateau offers both historical details and modern luxuries. This magical 25 – acre estate was the perfect background to a beautiful wedding for the wedding their once in a lifetime celebration. It felt like a rare jewel where past and present come together: the timeless elegance of a country estate with the sophistication and service of Manhattan!

The reception was held at a private, lushly landscaped garden with beautiful arbors overlooking the hills of the Hudson Valley. The magnificent ballroom venue took our breath away and was absolutely perfect. Not only was the venue beautiful with a grand entrance filled with votive candles and lanterns, rustic cocktail hour room, picture perfect sunset, stunning ballroom with fairytale chandeliers, spacious bridal suite), but the music was top notch too! 

Around Town Entertainment brought in Around Town Band to perform for the evening. They accommodated every song request to truly make the wedding special. They played hits from John Legend to Elton John while the guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. We overheard many comments from the bride and groom on how wonderful the music was. The music kept everyone dancing all night! What a stunning venue and absolutely perfect place to get married! We couldn’t have performed at a better wedding! 

The Around Town Band brings high energy experience to every event. They have elite, talented and studied musicians that have toured with some of today’s top artists. Book them today!

The Love Connection 150 150 adam Michael

The Love Connection

Jill, 23, a legal secretary and Andrew, 23, a police officer from Union City, N.J., met on a US Airways plane. When Jill boarded her flight between Newark and Charlotte, N.C., she was looking forward to some quiet time alone with her magazine.

But the moment the neighboring seat was occupied by good-looking stranger Andrew, she sensed the latest issue of Cosmopolitan could wait. Jill asked her if she had gum and then he bought her a bottle of water. Elizabeth was immediately struck by his friendly, laid-back attitude. What a nice guy! 

By the time the plane reached Charlotte, the pair were chatting like old friends. They had a 90-minute layover before taking separate onward flights and continued their flirtatious conversation in Starbucks. Even though they were visiting family in different parts of Florida, Andrew suggested they meet up right away. This was perfect for Elizabeth, who had recently separated from her husband after three years of marriage. She thought it was crazy, but she agreed. 

A few days later, Andrew drove more than 400 miles from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale and back to escort her to a Halloween night at Universal Studios. Jill was so flattered she asked him if it was a real date! He promised her it was as long as it ends in a kiss.  So she made sure that happened and leaned over and kissed him! What a cute story! 

The theme park visit was such a success they met up the day Andrew returned to New Jersey when he introduced Jill to his family. His mom was hoping that Andrew proposed because their babies would have the most gorgeous green eyes. 

Five months on, amid talk of moving in together, the romance had truly blossomed. Jill loved the way that, as a tough-guy cop, Andrew is her ultimate protector and also so trusting and kind. They say love happens when you least expect it. It had to be fate. And sure it was!

On March 8, 2020, they officially became husband and wife. They asked Around Town Entertainment to provide the live music entertainment and we were so happy to do so. 

Their special day was held at The Liberty House.  The Liberty House is a waterfront wedding venue in Jersey City, New Jersey. The location specializes in memorable wedding ceremonies and receptions. Boasting magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline, the venue is dedicated to tantalizing the senses of its guests with its award winning cuisine, handcrafted decor and lavish grounds. Designed to enchant, the venue features beautifully manicured gardens, private cabanas and fire-side seating. Classic and unforgettable, Liberty House is the ideal location for a wedding for the perfect couple!

 On this beautiful day, the Liberty House was packed with 500 of Andrew and Jill’s closest family and friends. The evening began with an elegant jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment for the cocktail hour.  Then all guests moved into the reception where the band literally played every style of music in the book, including some of their special song requests. Andrew and Jill really wanted pop songs from Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, and Train, so the band played the most current top 40 songs. 

The dance floor was packed the moment the band started the dance set. Even as the main course was being served, the guests just kept dancing! The night ended with classic tunes from the band like Frank Sinatra and Journey. Very appropriate to close a lovely evening!

Congratulations Jill and Andrew!

Deep Diving in Romance 150 150 adam Michael

Deep Diving in Romance

Lauren and Scott both met in the Upper West Side, met in a swimming pool in their apartment building. Few women look their best wearing swimming goggles and a tight rubber cap, but Lauren first caught Scott’s eye when she was busy completing laps in the pool of their apartment building.

Scott noticed a flaw in her left arm stroke and suggested a way to correct it. He thought she was really attractive. So they started chatting and Lauren, a newcomer to the complex, followed his advice on her technique, thinking little more about it. A short time later, however she spotted him on the subway and waved hello. Unfortunately, Scott didn’t recognize her and it was somewhat embarrassing. Scott felt so bad he wrote a note of apology, added his e-mail address, and pushed it under her apartment door. Lucky for him, Lauren was single and responded immediately.

Within days they went for drinks at a nearby French restaurant. After that, Scott charmed his would-be girlfriend with a flurry of clever, flirty emails. They didn’t actually kiss until the third date. It was at the door of Lauren’s apartment and it felt a bit odd at first, because he always left to go to another apartment in the same building.

Now, 13 months on, all awkwardness is gone. On February 22, 2020, Lauren and Scott got married. What a relief! Around Town Entertainment is proud to have performed at their wedding at SECOND, a premier New York City event space that offers end-to-end production, superb client service and unparalleled culinary expertise. The intersection of personability and ease, SECOND is a standout, scaleable venue. Located above bustling 6th Avenue in Chelsea, SECOND is as convenient as it is noteworthy. 

It was an amazing night of dancing and celebrations. The bride and groom made their grand entrance to a Pitbull and LMFAO classic as the guests cheered! Next was the moment for the bride and groom to take their first dance. They chose the beautiful acoustic version of “Vienna” by Billy Joel. All guests poured onto the dance floor to join the bride and groom on this dance and then it was time to party! 

The guests really loved the most current top 40 hits and the band was thrilled to play everyone of their requests! The party never stopped, even when it was time for the last song of the night. The crowd chanted for more music! The wedding band, Authority Band, played an encore song and the crowd went wild! These guests really came to dance and couldn’t get enough! What an exciting wedding!

The Authority Band always brings high energy experience to every event. They have elite, talented and studied musicians that have toured with some of today’s top artists. Book them today!

A Country Club Wedding Celebration 150 150 adam Michael

A Country Club Wedding Celebration

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.

Around Town Entertainment was honored to have been selected for this exclusive Rochester New York Wedding.   When looking for a New York City wedding band one can visit our website www.aroundtownent.com to view live and unedited videos of each of our five bands.

Brief Encounters on the PATH 150 150 adam Michael

Brief Encounters on the PATH

Sophie and Seth are both from Brooklyn. They first met on the PATH train. Like the plot of the classic film “Brief Encounter” set in a railway terminal, Sophie and Seth’s meeting was impossibly romantic.

“We’d noticed each other at the PATH station at Liberty View for months,” recalls Lauren, who commutes to Jersey City every day from her home in Brooklyn. “I’m 5-foot-10-inches tall so it cuts down the number of eligible guys because I don’t like to tower over them.”

Seth is 6-foot-3 inches tall and really stood out from the crowd. He was smartly dressed and Sophie couldn’t help thinking he was good-looking and sexy. The two regularly exchanged admiring glances but neither was brave enough to act on them.

Six months went by and, although they always rode in the same overcrowded first car, almost rubbing shoulders, nothing was said. Then, of all the days Seth finally chose to finally speak to Sophie. “He was in the seat next to me and asked if I worked in his building. I told him I didn’t, but it was enough to break the ice.” The rest was history.

It was a sunny evening last July and Seth walked her to her express bus stop near Ground Zero before asking for her phone number. It was her turn to be brave. She literally said, ‘What you really mean is that you want my phone number,’ “says Lauren. Two days later he called to arrange a date.  They had a meal before flirting over drinks at the atmospheric One If By Land, Two If By Sea restaurant in the West Village.

Their instincts were right because they got along famously and soon became an item. On June 3, 2018, they got married. The best part is that they invited Around Town Entertainment to play at the wedding at the most romantic spot- India House in Manhattan!

India House has a long and distinguished heritage tied into the formation of lower Manhattan as well as the history of business and commerce of New York. Now the venue itself…indescribable! As you walked up the cobblestone streets, there were chandeliers glowing inside through the windows and it felt like being transported back to a different time in NYC. 

Once you step inside, that feeling does not go away! It was beautiful, historical, and so unique for a wedding. There were a little over 200 people at the ceremony.  As Sophie and Seth exchanged vows, a pianist provided by Around Town Entertainment played classic hits from Celine Dion to Britney Spears, putting the mitis touch on the couple’s official first kiss.  

After that, Around Town Entertaintment’s Altitude Band continued on the night playing hit after hit during the cocktail hour and dinner. The venue rocked the 9-piece band that was perfect for dancing! Everyone we talked to loved the music from the wedding band! 

The Altitude Band always brings high energy experience to every event. They have elite, talented and studied musicians that have toured with some of today’s top artists. Book them today!

Thank you for choosing Around Town Entertainment, Sophie and Seth!

Swipe Right for Love 150 150 adam Michael

Swipe Right for Love

It comes down to an odd Profile on Tinder and a very understanding woman who took a chance on a lucky guy in Brooklyn.

Even though she never saw The Big Lebowski and had no idea what his profile was referencing she loved the simple picture of him and his grandparents. After a few weeks of talking through the app and on the phone, Jessica and Benjamin finally had a faithful date at Bryant Park’s Winter Village, where they talked, drank wine, and had amazing hot chocolate!

From then on there were nights of ordering from her favorite Pizzeria in the Bronx, eating pickle ice pops, watching Star Wars films, and dancing with their handsome cat Newman. Though their interests are so diverse, from his odd fascination in Super Heroes and Horror to her intense dedication to the protection and care for every living animal on this earth, they share a bond and commitment to each other that can never be broken.

On May 5, 2019, the union of these two souls destined to meet had their future created together forever. We were delighted when they asked Around Town Entertainment to play at their wedding. We also had a special set for this evening ready to go! 

They held their special day at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, New Jersey. For over fifty years, the legendary One & Only Westmount Country Club has been a one-of-a-kind wedding location that we’ve dreamed of playing at. 

As we entered into the palatial estate, we were welcomed with a grand drive up cobblestone accented with decorative wrought iron gates, flowers, and romantic street lights. The renowned property offered timeless elegance and peaceful seclusion. On this perfect wedding day, we were are on 30 acres of pristine landscaping overlooking the picturesque Garret Mountain. Wow!

Sparkling Champagne awaited guests as they arrived for the ceremony. The pianist from Around Town Entertainment played Elton John and The Beatles as the bride and groom made their entrance. Their first kiss was in front of a picturesque outdoor and a beautiful lighted gazebo, fronted by a sculptured fountain and waterfall that created the perfect setting for the wedding ceremony! 

After that, the celebrations continued into the Grand Ballroom for cocktails and reception! The Grand Ballroom was an intimate setting with its large picture windows overlooking the scenic Garrett Mountain, and lots of natural light. It almost created an ideal ambiance for a picture perfect wedding ceremony. Picture perfect!

The couple’s first dance wedding song was “Yeah 3x” by Chris Brown performed by Around Town Entertainment’s A-List Band. Legendary! The bride chose “I’ll Be Loving You Always” by Stevie Wonder as her father and daughter wedding song. “Your Song” by Elton John was the selected song for the Mother and son wedding song. The bride and groom also got to hear some of their favorite wedding dance songs played by the band from Michael Jackson to Sade as guests danced and laughed all night.

Around Town Entertainment was thrilled to have been chosen by our clients as the best New York wedding music and New Jersey wedding music. For all your New Jersey wedding band needs, please visit https://aroundtownent.com/new-jersey-wedding-bands/

The Castle at Oyster Bay 150 150 adam Michael

The Castle at Oyster Bay

Kat and Kevin met through mutual friends. But those who know them well know that they met at the drift, and then years later at a friend’s birthday party.  Kevin and Kat knew that they had a connection since day one, but timing is everything, as they say.

It wasn’t until they met again when things began to sparkle. They both knew the second time that they met was “It.” “It” was a match made in heaven.  Both were the same person..and knew something special had happened. They had just met their soulmate! 

This was one the most classic love stories we’ve ever heard. We were very glad that everything happened the way that it did. And even more excited when they asked Around Town Entertainment to perform at their wedding at the Mansion at Oyster Bay in Woodbury, NY!

When it comes to weddings, The Mansion at Oyster Bay stands majestically in the heart of 120 perfectly manicured acres in Woodbury, Long Island. The ambiance of this former magnificent Gold Coast estate is rich with elegance and hospitality, but updated with modern amenities. 

Originally designed by renowned architects Delano and Aldrich, this stunning Gold Coast estate was constructed in 1918. Throughout the decades, it went through a number of owners and inhabitants, and is one of the few properties of its kind that still stands today. Many of the decorative elements have survived since the 1920s when they were added by the owner, art collector Alyssa Mellon Bruce. An avid traveler and socialite, Mellon Bruce hosted many Gatsby-style parties throughout the 1920s and ‘30s, and this atmosphere survives today! We were so fortunate to be able to experience this Long Island Gold Coast luxury to be able to share it with Kat and Kevin in an unforgettable setting!

As the bride and groom made a grand entrance down a sweeping staircase into the lobby, they were greeted by a decorated stately black and white marble floor. Wow! As guests headed outside they witnessed the beautiful outdoor ceremony set up on the brick-lined patio. Around Town Entertainment provided a guitarist for the music ceremony. The bride and groom walked through a charming arch covered in flowers to say their vows in the garden gazebo. Surrounded by family and friends, it was a beautiful moment as both newlyweds sealed their marriage with a kiss, flanked by nature’s beauty all around. 

After the magical ceremony, guests enjoyed an elegant cocktail hour on the second floor balcony, while taking in the beautiful atmosphere throughout the Oyster Bay property. When evening arrived, guests were treated to delicious food and music from Around Town Enteratinment’s Authority Band. The refined ballroom, complete with dark wood accents and sparkling chandeliers was the perfect place to dance the night away as the wedding band played hits from The Beatles, Queen, and Beach Boys. 

The Authority Band brings high energy experience to every event. They have elite, talented and studied musicians that have toured with some of today’s top artists. Book them today!

Congratulations, Kat and Kevin! 

First Date to Remember 150 150 adam Michael

First Date to Remember

Caroline and Alex met in the fall of 2010 as juniors at Bates College.  They spent the next semester as pen pals while Alex studied abroad and then started dating that summer.  8 years later, although the restaurant where they had their first date closed several years ago, they decided to finally get married on August 10, 2019. What a story!

Together they have endured Maine winters, 3 years of long-distance dating and New York City’s “New York Cityness”, and after surviving all of that, they believe they are fully prepared to embrace whatever adventures await in their future life as they get married and build a home — together.

They invited us to the Peconic Bay Yacht Club in The North Folk, New York to perform at their wedding. This has been a special place for both of them for several years and we trust that you will see why during our wedding weekend.  Around Town Entertainment was thrilled to be able to perform at their wedding!

Nestled in the North Fork’s Peconic Bay and Long Island wine country, the Peconic Bay Yacht Club is a very beautiful facility for wedding celebrations! The property has a waterfront lawn, a private marina, an exquisite indoor ballroom, lounge, private tasting room, and panoramic view from the terrace!

A pianist from Around Town Entertainment set the mood as the bride and groom walked out officially as a married couple to songs from The Beatles and Queen!  It felt like a romantic affair!  The manicured grounds and great lawn overlooking the Peconic Bay were perfect for this picturesque ceremony. 

After that, guests headed into The Ballroom for dinner and dancing. Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment played cover songs from Arcade Fire, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, and much more to ring in the wedding celebration. While guests were enjoying the time, they also had a chance to overlook the panoramic water views. The scene was delightfully special!

The food was delicious and there’s so much of it! From cocktail hour and the amazing raw bar to the butler-passed dessert parade, everything was flavorful and well-executed. We overhead guests mentioning that it is the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Couldn’t agree more! 

When dinner and dessert was finished, the party continued with Around Town Band performing an intimate showcase for the guests. From Bruno Mars to Pearl Jam, the wedding band played hits that kept the floor pumping with sweat and energy. What a night!

The wedding at Peconic Bay Yacht Club was by far one of the most magical evenings of our lives!!! From the service, coordination, organization, set-up, menu, cuisine, drinks, and everything else, we were impressed by the planning leading up to and execution of their wedding day. Well done!

A Big Surprise 150 150 adam Michael

A Big Surprise

The love story of Gina and Matt’s began at work, but only after a few missed connections. They would try to talk at work events but either one of them couldn’t attend or had to leave early. But soon their work friends dragged them out. Eventually they soon became interested in each other and told the other they wanted to go on a date. A week later they went on their first date and the rest is history!

Their proposal is another unique story! Gina and Matt spent an off-Friday apart running errands. When they both got home, they were doing laundry and Gina was steaming clothes in the other bedroom. Little did Gina know Matt picked up the ring that day. Matt came in and said “see, doing laundry with me isn’t so bad. How would you like to do laundry with me forever?”

When Gina turned around, she expected to look up at his face (he’s much taller than him) and realized he was on the ground, on one knee. He had the ring box open and I still didn’t process what was happening until he asked me to marry him! Wow! It was a roller coaster of emotions! We’re so happy to hear that we even cried! He also hid a champagne bottle in the kitchen that the jewelry store gave them. Once they posted about being engaged, it was heartwarming to get so many calls and texts from their family and friends.

We found out later that he hid the ring in the sock drawer when he got home, and was so anxious that he had to propose that day – he wouldn’t have been able to keep it a secret! They also told us that their parents knew for weeks since the ring took a while to get made and shipped to the store. It was a big secret! And definitely a good one! Because she had NO idea Matt was going to propose!

They held their wedding on November 10, 2019 at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa in Old Saybrook, CT. We were happy to be invited to help them with their special day. Nestled between the Long Island Sound and Connecticut River, Saybrook Point Resort & Marina boasts the best in waterfront tranquility. With every visit to Old Saybrook, Connecticut, encounter the friendliness of a small town, breathtaking marina vistas, and glimpses of rich history. 

Saybrook Point Resort & Marina has created the perfect balance of northern extravagance and a touch of southern hospitality. It was a truly charming experience! The Old Saybrook is petite in size, but the memories from the wedding along the Connecticut shoreline will last a lifetime! 

The ceremony was held at the Compass Rose, a terrace located at the end of a bricked walk, facing the picturesque Marina, and looking towards the Long Island Sound. The early morning wedding ceremony was picture perfect as the bride and groom exchanged vows. A pianist from Around Town Entertainment was there to usher in the newlyweds’ special day while guests smiled and cried.

The party then moved to the Main Ballroom, which provided spectacular views of both the Marina, our Lighthouse and the scenic Connecticut shoreline. The beautiful gardens surrounded the Main Terrace were plush and added just the right touch of color to the perfect ceremony!

The wedding band, Around Town Band, played Rick James and Stevie Wonder to introduce the new bride and groom. We can’t forget about the emotional tribute to Gina’s grandmother, MiMi. The wedding band played “Gina” by Johnny Mathis because it’s a song Gina and her grandmother used to listen to this song together. 

She would have loved Matt just like Gina loves Matt. Matt also loves this song and plays it for Gina here and there, especially if she is in a bad mood! The wedding band had guests singing along all night. From Dan & Shay to Backstreet Boys, the high energy was contagious throughout the whole night! This was another successful wedding by Around Town Entertainment!

We can’t wait to perform again in Connecticut!

Cheers to Gina and Matt!!
