Recently, we played our unique live band karaoke show for a wedding reception in San Diego. We had a blast and figured we’d post a quick re-cap of how things went.
The bride and groom chose a very classy 1930’s theme and the guests and wedding party were all decked out. Everyone was looking mighty sharp! Even the band dressed up in our “1930’s” best. The venue was the picturesque Museum of Photographic Arts at Balboa Park in San Diego. Start to finish, this was a great wedding reception. The cocktail hour and dinner were both pretty low key, but the food looked incredible and the drinks were flowing. We watched some touching toasts, the traditional first dance, and everyone was warming up to the idea of sharing the stage with us.
The cocktails must have worked. From the moment we took the stage, we had non-stop sign ups for karaoke singers. The bride kicked things off with her stirring rendition of Pat Benatar’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot. What a way to get the crowd warmed up! Others followed with karaoke classics, like Love Shack, Sweet Caroline, and our personal favorite of the night – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, starring several beautiful women! (see figure 1). All in all, it was a great event that was full of energy and fun. Special thanks to Jeff & Fairlight for having us as a part of their special day – congratulations and best wishes!
PS. They tried to keep us out of the photo booth, but we couldn’t stay away…
