We were recommended to Tina and Dave by the good folks at The 21 Club. They do some smaller weddings there and they were impressed with the way we maintain the ability to play a wide variety of music with a smaller ensemble.

Tina and Dave wanted just that in the music they chose for their wedding. We put together arrangements of all of their favorite songs with a four piece band that not only fit into the smaller space but didn’t overwhelm their guests with volume. We had a lot of fun with it and the guests not only got to talk and enjoy the beautiful setting and amazing food at 21, but they still got to dance and cut loose as if we were a full sized orchestra.

For Tina and Dave’s wedding they had a short ceremony to start the evening for which we played Moon River, a favorite of both the bride and the groom. They requested You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne for their first dance. We love playing this one; it’s been very popular. It’s a great heartfelt song that’s also danceable – it makes everyone want to move!

Here’s some details…

Honoree: Michel Goldberg

This year’s Beaux Arts Ball was a smashing success as always and seemed particularly lively. The addition of masks to the event’s “creative black tie” concept in 2012 really ramped up this year and everyone got into the spirit of the evening.

For Yves and me it was an extra special treat to be there to help honor his dad Michel Goldberg. Michel has made an unbelievable contribution to the arts community in Greene County, NY through his work with the GCCA as well as Cedar Grove: The Thomas Cole National Historic Site. A graduate of The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Michel has dedicated his life to the arts as a teacher, a professional graphic designer with his own design firm in NYC and now a fine artist exploring his love of drawing, print making and sculpture. Michel joined the Greene County Council on the Arts in 1992 and became a member of the board of directors in 2004 where he served as vice president until last year when he stepped down to focus on his own work as an artist.

Michel receives the 2013 Distinguished Service Award.

The evening’s festivities included a silent auction and of course, dancing in the main ballroom. This year the dance floor was packed and rockin’ all the way through to midnight! Oh wait, that’s every year. Thanks again Greene County Council on the Arts for kicking off party season in style.

Yves hits a high note!
