I was looking so forward to playing for Nicole and Jon’s wedding Saturday at The Stockroom in downtown Raleigh NC! They are the nicest couple and I loved their music picks.

They were married the day before, so this was more of a wedding celebration party. The guests started arriving before Nicole and Jon and I had a mix of indie rock and classic soul playing. Nicole & Jon were waiting in the top floor’s Glass Box to be announced into the room. Everyone arrived and I was ready to get the introduction going.

I only introduced Nicole & Jonathan and they came in to thunderous applause and had their first dance. Nicole’s father then joined her for their dance and Jonathan escorted his Sister to the floor for their dance. The salads came out and the buffet opened. The Rocky Top dinner was so good!!!!! As always.

After dinner we had toasts and a heart felt thank you by Jon, then the cake cutting. After that I opened the floor with some oldies and top 40 that was soon filled for the next 2 hours. I played a mix of oldies and Motown, top 40 and hip hop, some 70’s & 80’s, a few line dances and even New Kids On The Block for Nicole & her childhood friends. We ended the night with a huge sing a long circle to “Piano Man” and “Sweet Caroline”.

This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!
