What a beautiful evening for all. I had such a great time. Some very unique aspects to a perfect wedding and my piano music.
First off, I had met the bride and groom Amiee and Chris when they posted an ad of craigslist I contacted them and they ended up coming in to hear me play live at the Left Coast Wine Bar where I’m a regular entertainer on Friday evenings.
They had asked me if I could play You and I – Michael Buble/Stevie Wonder. I honestly “hacked” my way through it at that time as I was just winging it with a chord chart version I found on the internet with my ipad. But I guess it was good enough to become good friends with them and we eventually sealed the deal so to speak and made arrangements to hire me to make the perfect wedding music for them on their big day. : )
They ended up having me to play solo piano music for the cocktail reception and wanted my trio and my self to make perfect music for the diner and first dance etc…
One extremely beautiful part of the whole evening was right after the first dance, Amiee had met with me earlier in my studio in…Studio City and we had worked out a beautiful surprise of her singing “That’s All” to Chris.
I must say that when she sang that song there was hardly a dry eye in the house. : )
Everything came off with out a hitch and Amiee and Chris told me over and over how many of their guest had commented on how awesome the music was. For me it was just a great honor to be asked to be part of their day and help them make it perfect!
