6/30/12 – Jessica and Bryan Rego Wedding

Posted in Weddings at 1:55 am by Administrator

This was a very interesting wedding. It took place in Historic Bristol, RI right before there 4th Of July Festivities. On Friday, June 29th I meet both Bryan and Jessica at noon on site to take a look and see how things would be layed out since I was doing music for the Ceremony, Cocktail, Dinner and Dancing parts of the night.

The layout was nice, wished I would have take a few pictures. It was extremly humid being right on the water front under a tent. She had a company come in a hang Chinese Lanterns. She also highered in a Steel Drum artist for before the ceremony and for cocktail hour in the cabin that was on a hill.

Early afternoon was really nice in Bristol. I left a little early in case of traffice but there really was none so I have not been there in a long time so I drove the parade route and it was decorated beautfully. I then headed over to Mount Hope Farm to start loading in.

When I got there it was the same time as the caterers who were also running the bar that night. They explained the tent company screwed up putting the floor down. As soon as the Bride and Groom arrived she was upset cause of the layout and I just reminded her that if that is the only thing that goes wrong today it was a really good day and not to sweat it, we will make it work.

I started playing music for the Ceremony a little early around 4:20 or so. Ceremony was starting at 5:00pm. Guests slowly started trickling in and the ceremony started a few minutes late due some late arriving guests and that was ok. Jessica is a very big Disney person so her choice for the Ceremony music was all Disney songs.

After the Ceremony they had a small cocktail hour at the cabin on the hill overlooking the tent for the reception. During the Cocktail hour the father of the bride arranged for a Mickey and Minnie to show up and that was a nice touch.

At around 6:00 pm I lined up our bridal party and every one was ready for the fun to start. They decieded to go with a Will Smith themed Entrance. It was pretty cool. Songs ranging from his days in the 80’s up till the early 90’s and it was really different. Due to some logistics issues I had to play a song while I moved a speaker so both would be under the tent. We did the 1st dance right off the bat and they picked Rhythm Of Love/ Can’t Help Falling In Love by Straight No Chaser which is a vocal group with no instruments they each do different instruments with there voices….

The speechs were great, the Maid of Honor the Brides Sister talked about how Bryan had planned on proposing in Disney on one of there trips. Then the best man went and his speech was up there as well. Dinner went a little long and that is ok cause they had stations of Beef and Chicken, many different types of Potatoes and Deserts.

After  the bride and groom walked the tent for a bit we did the cake cutting and formalities. They bought some glow necklaces which was a nice touch for open dancing. Once the dancing started the energy stayed there until it was time to end at 10:30 since there is a noise ordinance in Bristol. Overall it was one of the best weddings that I have done outside in a long time.

Keep checking back for the play list from that night…..

6/15/2012 – 2012 Relay For Life of Greater Taunton

Posted in Events, General at 9:42 pm by Administrator

This was a very very fun event. I have been touched personally by both cancer and ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease), so I will do what I can personally to help both the ALS Foundation and ACS out at relays.

This event was held at Bristol Plymouth Regional Technical School from 5:00pm on Friday, June 15th to 9:00 am on Saturday, June 16th.

Sara Watkins was very instrumental in how the event ran. I believe she had a committee of about 10 or so people helping her out organizing it.

I arrived on site around 3pm to start unload for the opening ceremony at 5pm. She had explained to me in the planning stages that they were going to have a band play right after the opening ceremony and that was great. Give everyone there to raise money some different kinds of entertainment.

I got unloaded and setup a larger sound system than usual cause it was on the track around the football field. So I had a very large area to cover for announcements and music.

At 4:15pm I was ready to go so I started playing some classic rock that I really love and I did notice that other people were sing along while I was making sure it could be heard throughout the football field and around the track.

at 5pm began the opening ceremony. Even Mayor Hoye was there to give a speech. The lead singer of the band playing that night (Past Imperfect) said a few words and I found out he was a cancer survivor.

Right after the opening ceremony was finished the committee had me play Martina McBrides “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” was a very touching song that I listened to once before when adding it to my music collection when it was release but never realized what it was about. That subject happens to be about someone who finds out they have cancer. All I know as I listened to the song I started to cry like I am right now writing this blog. Cancer is no job and a tough thing to go through. I was really glad they chose that song for the survivors lap. Then I follow that up with the inspiring “I’m A Survivor” by Reba McEntire. Everyone was singing along with that one as well…

After the few laps they did at that time Past Imperfect came on and played from about 6:30pm or so till 10:00pm… I played some tunes during the 2 breaks they took. They were all over the music genre’s from Jimmy Buffet to Jimmy Eat World to Lit… I really liked listening to them alot.

Sara also had given me a scheduled of how the night was going to run.

Around 8pm or so when it was dark we had a luminaries ceremony which touched my heart cause my Uncle and Grandmother both passed away from different forms of cancer. They asked me to play some bag pipe music cause orginally they were going to have one on site. I ended up playing like 4 songs. Starting it off with Amazing Grace which was very fitting.

Each team that wanted to could sponsor a lap and they could do something with that hour. Each lap was a lot of fun. The relay committee started it off with a Quarter Lap which meant if you brought quarters with you they wanted you to put them on the track on a white line and see how many quarters they would get and they all would be donated to ACS.

To be honest I can not remember every lap that we did but here is what I do remember.

Tim Sousa who is a Cancer Survivor and published author had a Poem hour. At first there was only 1 or 2 that signed up but as the start time approached he end up with 10 entry’s. He ended up decided to publish all of them in his next book that will be out shortly.

Team Dunkin Donuts sponsored 2 different hours. One was Going back to being a kid with different games such as Potato Sack Race which someone actually went all the way around the track in the sack and he got the nickname after that called potato sack boy, Shoe toss, Three Legged Race and a few others. The other hour they sponsored was Minute to Win it. They did Pie Eating contest in which Tim took part.

One of the teams not sure which one but they did Line Dances and had a Group come up and perform. Both parts were great….

We had a talent contest and had some great sports that went up and Sang and did Gymnastics.

I play requests from about 5 different Genre’s of music throughout the night.

Ocean Spray Whale Watch

Posted in Events at 10:07 pm by Administrator

Last night was great. We got to see over 20 different Hump Back Whales. One even accidentally hit our boat as it dove… I have been on a lot of outings for corporate events but this has topped most of them….  We left Plymouth Harbor around 4:15pm and the seas were calm.  We had a naturalist on board and she gave us a lot of in site on how the Whales get named and what their names were…  Even the plant manager came up to me and said that I impressed his 11 year old daughter and that i played at least 1 song from every genre…. I was impressed with this due to I made an 11 year girl happy… My job as the entertainment at any event is to make as many people as possible happy… Sometimes you have bad events and others you make everyone happy….. Happens all the time…

Biggest requests of the night:
