So I had an absolute BLAST djin’ (saturday night) at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse!!! It was really AWESOME!! The bride (Megan) is one of the producers of American Idol. The groom (Clay) is also in T.V. & Production in L.A. I have to say these two people are some of the nicest people I’ve met. And one of the most important things to them (on their wedding day) was the music and entertainment. Thus, it was an honor to be hired as the “main entertainment” (see above photo) for dinner & dancing.
In edition to my efforts, I was able to work with a few of the bride & grooms close friends on the wedding ceremony music. I played 2 pre-recorded songs for the bridal party and bride (Re: Stacks by Bon Iver & Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Izzy) to walk down the isle too. During the ceremony three of their friends played (un-ampilified & accapella) and sang the song from the ONCE soundtrack… Falling Slowly. It was AMAZING!! They were so good! For the wedding recessional, they had an “old time band” (Triple Chicken Foot) play the wedding recessional. These guys couldn’t have been better!! They played banjo, violin & acoustic guitar and sang… once the ceremony finished… Triple Chicken Foot continued playing “old time music” for the cocktail hour inside the farmhouse.
