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!
