Marianna and Nate

Date: July 17

Location: Sea Cliff Yacht Club, Sea Cliff, NY

First Dance: Just in Time (Nina Simone version)

We first met Marianna and Nate back in the fall of 2009. Marianna booked us remotely via the internet, so we set up a meeting to talk about music during one of their trips to NYC to nail things down for their July 2010 wedding. When they walked into the Greenwich Village French Roast location we had agreed on as a meeting place it was clear that they were a perfect match for Nite-Time, the un-wedding band. Marianna and Nate are a fun and quirky couple with great taste in music and a terrific sense of style which really showed at their wedding and in their request list.

NYU grads, just like me, Marianna and Nate have eclectic and cool taste in music, clothes and dogs! They chose a great list of requests for the night, including the Save Ferris version of “Come on Eileen” and “99 Red Balloons”. They danced with their guests all night (after a short stint behind the bar mixing up cocktails).

Marianna and Nate’s wedding was fun for the band as well. We had a great time learning their special requests and have kept most of them in the repertoire. The new and improved Nite-Time song list now includes:

  • Buddy Holly, Weezer
  • Come on Eileen, Save Ferris
  • I Want You to Want Me, Cheap Trick
  • Just Like Heaven, The Cure
  • I Melt With You, Modern English
  • 99 Red Balloons, Nena
  • What I Got, Sublime

They also reminded us of some tunes we had almost forgotten that we knew like “Tempted” and “Little Red Corvette.” As you can see, good times were had by all, and three weeks later, the Sea Cliff Yacht Club had us back to play at their annual clambake. Marianna and Nate are great. We love people who love to have fun!
