Hey everyone!

I know it’s been a while since we last posted, but we have had a crazy busy couple of months. We rocked some pretty awesome events in May and June in addition to starting the planning process with Nite-Time’s Class of 2016. We figured you all might want to see what we’ve been up to, so here are some photo highlights of our spring season…

We were honored to return (for the eighth year) to perform for the amazing folks at the Princeton Child Development Institute. They do such wonderful work with children and adults living with autism and they do a terrific job organizing this event each year.

This marked the third year in a row that the good people at the Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center asked us to perform for their Spring Gala and one of the few times of the year that Amy and Bennett get to perform as a duo before the full band gets rockin’. Always fun!

We rocked a small fete with our friends from Arizona Iced Tea on Memorial Day weekend and Amy got to go electric… again!

Of course, no spring would be complete without our Columbia College Reunion Weekend revelers jamming to tunes from every decade on the plaza outside the iconic Low Library in the heart of NYC! We probably say this every year, but this year seemed to bring out more alumni than ever before.

We were invited to perform for Duggal Visual Solutions’ summer yacht party again this year and it was so much fun! This year’s party was on the Hornblower Infinity, a boat with a capacity of 1000 people, so cool.

All Aboard!

Did we mention it was a white party?

Amy and Yves got to rock it duo style at the Wolfert’s Roost CC’s Belmont Stakes party on June 6th. We’re not saying the acoustic good vibes we sent out had anything to do with American Pharoah’s historic triple crown win, but you never know ūüėČ

Just three days before the end of spring on June 18th, wedding season kicked in for us again with Bianca and Lyncean’s NYC nuptials. These two ER docs are so busy they had to schedule their wedding for a Thursday night. It’s all good, we’ll rock a party any day of the week. More to come on that one…

Knigi and Bogdan had an intimate wedding upstairs at The Water Club on the East River in NYC. They found us online and hired a slightly smaller five piece version of Nite-Time to fit the space. They had their dancing shoes on from the get go, as did their guests. This couple truly enjoyed their day and each other. They chose the iconic You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker as their first dance which our amazing Danny Powers sang to perfection.

All in all the celebration was warm and joyous with plenty of dancing. Knigi’s mom and Bogdan’s dad shared a special dedication dance with Bogdan’s mom and Knigi’s uncle.¬†We had a great time and the guests really appreciated the music. We are so happy to have been a part of this wonderful couple’s most special day.

Date: May 26th

Location: Edition Farm, Waccabuc, NY

First Dance: In My Life by The Beatles

Caitlin and Bobby found us through our website, as most couples do these days and came to see us at a live showcase last summer before booking us for their wedding. A lovely couple, they chose mostly retro music for their reception which took place at Caitlin’s grandmother’s house on a small satellite facility of her horse farm in Waccabuc, NY a beautiful hamlet in Westchester County.

The Waccabuc branch of Edition Farm is home to three gorgeous retired mares who were out for an afternoon of grazing as the guests arrived. Luckily, this was after a few light showers had passed over, once again clearing the way to a rain free outdoor reception – which happens a lot for us!

The ceremony took place in a local church, so guests arrived at the farm in time for cocktails behind the main house next to the pool.

Guests were led down a stone path through an arbor to the back yard where they found a very unique way to determine their table assignments. The names of the guests, along with their seating placement, were written in white on the glass of some vintage window panes that were hung from a giant old maple that sat majestically at the entrance to the yard. 

This was such an adorable touch, we just had to snap a pic!

The reception tent was set up in front of the house near the paddocks where the horses were allowed to graze and exercise. The seating was done family style and the table settings were immaculate! A mix of peonies, hydrangea, roses and wildflowers adorned the tables with silver rimmed chargers and light blue table cloths. The whole of the decor reflected the essence of spring. The guests were instantly enchanted. Elaina of Elaina Events Etc. did an amazing job!

The reception began with Caitlin and Bobby’s first dance, The Beatles classic In My Life. We then went right into a dance set of Motown and R&B favorites like Signed Sealed Delivered, Everyday People and Let’s Stay Together. The crowd was up on their feet immediately and we knew we were going to have a great time with great dancers!

A little later on, we got to some more contemporary selections by request from the crowd and ended up playing a little something for everyone, from Donna Summer to Carole King.

Caitlin danced with her dad to You Are the Sunshine of My Life by Stevie Wonder and Bobby shared a dance with his mom to Unforgettable, by the legendary Nat King Cole. It was truly a wonderful evening, at the end of the night, Caitlin’s grandmother shook my hand and told me what a fabulous time she’d had “your music made the whole evening” she said. Thank You so much for the kind words and for allowing us to share in your most very special day, oh and we can’t wait to hear all about Caitlin and Bobby’s honeymoon in Turkey!

Here are a few more pics worth sharing…

Another Great Review!

Alex and Doug were married back in April and sent this email to Yves shortly after their wedding…

Yves,

I want to thank you and the band once again for the fantastic music during our wedding celebration. ¬†We got many, many, comments telling us how great the band was — including from several musician friends! ¬†Amy is amazing! ¬†Everything you played was great, and we’re especially grateful for the lovely rendition of “My Romance.” ¬†Also loved “Wedding Bell Blues” during the cake cutting; a friend told me later he’d never hear that song the same way again (me neither). ¬†You all really helped make our celebration a joyous and memorable one.

Cheers,

Alex & Doug

Thanks Alex and Doug. Hope all is well!
