Sanfosso 70th Birthday Party

70th.jpgThe last official day of Summer 2012 was very summer like in it's weather with bright sunshine & a mid 80's temperature. This was in my favor as I had a 2 1/4 hour drive to the Avalon Links Golf Club in Cape May Courthouse, NJ.rockbox.jpg I do enjoy the longer drives as I can rock out in the van (the Rock Box as I call it!) on the way there.  This particular trek I was jamming to 311, No Doubt & Fatboy Slim. Everyone truly enjoyed themselves helping Andy celebrate his 70th birthday to a playlist that was heavy on the oldies and having some current group dances mixed in. Some key tracks of the night:

Wooly Bully - Sam Sham & The Pharaohs
Tequilla - The Champs
Little Bitty Pretty One - Thurston Harris
Since I don't Have you - The Skliners
Cupid Shuffle - Cupid
Paper Doll - Frank Sinatra (dinner)
Do you love me? - The Contours
Aint Misbehavin'- Steve Tyrell (dinner)
I only have eyes for you - The Flamingoes
Shout parts I & II - The Isley Brothers
Cotteneye Joe - Rednex
Mack The Knife - Bobby Darrin

Tyson - Sohrab Wedding Reception 9-15-12
Another beautiful day for a wedding in September making it three wedding weekends in a row of optimal conditions! I provided music for the ceremony which was held in Hamilton Square's picturesque Sayen Gardens, afterwards receiving a compliment from a guest on the clarity of the sound (single Mackie Thump speaker used with Numark DDS setup, Audio Technica wireless mic). gardens.jpg It was a Bahá'í ceremony with the groom being of Persian descent. The first time I had witnessed such a ceremony, simple & elegant with the bride and groom reciting their vows to each other and no real prescence of an "officiant". Next it was on to the reception located adjacent to The Gardens @ The Nottingham Ballroom. It was a festive fun filled night owing in part to the multi-cultural aspect of the wedding. Guests had traveled from out of state & country to attend , as far away as Sweden & Ghana. Dancing commenced immediately after dinner with large groups taking to the floor and enjoying some of the selections that included music from around the globe. reception.jpg The key genres being represented were Indian, West African & Persian Music. Some key tracks of the night:

- Forever, Ben Harper (1st Dance)
- Beware of The Boys, Jay-Z f./ Panjabi MC
Dragostea din tei, O-zone
- La Tortura, Shakira f./ Alejandro Sanz
- Sweet Home Alabama, Lynrd Skynrd
- Spanish Eyes, Al Marino (Dinner)
- Don't Stop 'til You get Enough, Michael Jackson
- The Game of Love, Michelle Branch & Santana (Cocktail)
- Stiched Up , John Mayer & Herbie Hancock (Cocktail)
