Spring Has Sprung!

Happy Spring Everyone,

When we last checked in with you all, we were getting set to rock Valentine’s Day at Seasons at Windham Mountain, and that we did. It was one of the best (if not coldest) ski weekends of the season and the folks at Seasons were up and dancing with us to help warm up after a chilly afternoon on the slopes! Our favorite newly-engaged guitar-god, JT Curtis filled in for Danny and rocked the house while showing his beautiful fiancé the love! Hey JT, we know an awesome band for your wedding 😉

That was quite a move, and he still nailed the solo!

 

We kicked off the year on January 16th when we hit the road to play for Natasha and Brian’s Wedding in Washington DC at The Capitol View at 400. We first met Natasha a few years back when we played for her mom’s 50th bash in Maryland. We all had so much fun with these folks, we were super psyched to rock out with them again in our nation’s capital. Natasha is an amazing professional dancer and aerialist and really showed off her skills during the couple’s first dance, You’re The Cream in My Coffee.

It was an awesome way to kick off 2016!

 

On New Year’s Eve we got a chance to party with our friends at The Wolfert’s Roost Country Club in Albany, NY – wow, we really get around! Amy, kicked off the festivities that night by flexing her solo acoustic guitar and vocal muscles during the cocktail hour before she joined the full band for dancing in the ball room!

Happy New Year!

 

In March we all took some time off before donning our masks for this year’s annual GCCA Beaux Arts Ball on April 2nd,which honored our friend and colleague Frank Cuthbert for his contributions to supporting local art and artists. Frank is a wonderfully talented composer and performer. We had the privilege of performing a piece from Frank’s musical Coney Island entitled Great Kissers in New York, and later in the evening we surprised Frank and called him up on stage to sing one of our favorites of his songs, Nervous. We have such a great time at this event each year and this year was no exception. We feel honored to contribute to this very worthy cause in our small way and truly respect the people who work tirelessly to make sure that the arts are supported in our community. Thank you to Kay Stamer and David and Jean Slutsky for allowing us to be a part of this event year after year and to Frank for rocking with us!

On April 4th, Yves and the guys provided a jazz trio for the Stanley M. Isaacs Center Gala at The Racquet and Tennis Club on Park Avenue in NYC. Yves delighted the crowd with his cocktail-hour crooning while Bennett tickled the ivories for the guests as they mingled and perused the silent auction items before heading into the main ballroom for dinner and a live auction to benefit the center.

Gala-goers anxiously await the live auction portion of the evening.

 

 

Those are just some of the highlights of this past winter, we’ve been working on some new and exciting things for this coming season while trying to stay warm. Learning new songs, developing new services that we can offer our amazing clients and  bringing you up to date for winter/ early spring fun with Nite-Time.

Next up: Catch Yves and Amy performing at the Windham Bridal Expo on May 15th. We’ll be unveiling our new site ygpltd.com. Finally, you’ll be able to find all of our services in one place, from acoustic acts to full bands to DJs to musical ceremony services (complete with officiant). We are so excited about our expansion and look forward to making all of your entertainment wishes come true!

Date: March 31st

Location: The Coppertree Restaurant at Hunter Mountain, Hunter, NY

Honoree: Purcell Palmer for Catwalk Artist Residency

This year Nite-Time had the pleasure of returning for the fifth year in a row to the Greene County Council on the Arts annual Beaux Arts Ball. Each year the ball is held at the beautiful Coppertree Restaurant at the foot of Hunter Mountain in Hunter, NY. This year’s March 31st ball had a masquerade theme which was a lot of fun and made it an incredible night!

This year the GCCA which “provides information and services to artists, arts organizations, cultural and educational institutions, civic groups, community agencies and the general public” honored Purcell Palmer.

Purcell, with her husband James, founded Catwalk Art Residency. Since its establishment in 2004, Catwalk has welcomed over 200 artists in residence to a “special retreat for art making, collaborative projects and scholarly discourse in a visually stimulating part of the country that has historically provided and continues today to provide significant inspiration to artists, cultural historians, writers and scholars.” Additionally, the council raised $22,000 toward their annual fundraising goal.

This year, there were masks made by local artists and volunteers available for sale during the silent auction to help everyone get into the spirit of the masked ball.

Lex Grey got things going with her bawdy cabaret and then we ramped things up with hits from the 60′s to today. Everybody was up and dancing, masked or unmasked!

It was actually really fun to perform wearing a mask, only a little bit difficult…

Yves had to take his off once he really started hitting those drums!

We love that we get the chance to lend a hand and help out this very worthy cause each year. Funding for arts in our communities is getting harder and harder to come by. We’d like to thank Kay Stamer, David Slutzky, the fine folks at the GCCA and all local arts councils for doing all that they do to keep arts alive in our communities.

If you didn’t make it out this time, next year consider joining us for an excellent time with an amazing group of people!

Date: April 2, 2011

Location: Coppertree Restaurant, Hunter, NY

Honorees: Robert Manno & Magdalena Golczewski

This year we at Nite-Time – New York City’s Premier Party Band! had the pleasure of rocking out with the Greene County Council on the Arts and all of their supporters for the fourth time at the 23rd annual Beaux Arts Ball. Each year the ball is held at the beautiful Coppertree Restaurant at the foot of Hunter Mountain in Hunter, NY. This year’s ball was on April 2nd and it was truly a night to remember!

This year the GCCA which “provides information and services to artists, arts organizations, cultural and educational institutions, civic groups, community agencies and the general public” honored the founders of the Windham Chamber Music Festival, Robert Manno and Magdalena Golczewski. Robert and Magdalena, like Yves and me, are a married couple who have spent their lives working in music. Robert and Magdalena have been bringing classical music to Windham since 1997 and have done a tremendous amount to enrich the mountain community of Windham and the surrounding areas.

Robert and Magdalena Receive honors at the 2011 GCCA Ball!

After Lex Grey got things going during the cocktail and silent auction hour with her bawdy cabaret (which is always a good time), we ramped things up throughout the night with hits from the 60’s to today. Like we always do, we had everybody up and dancing and it was a good crowd filled with some pretty awesome dancers.

We love that we get the chance to lend a hand and help out this very worthy cause each year. Funding for arts in our communities is getting harder and harder to come by. We’d like to thank Kay Stamer, David Slutzky, the fine folks at the GCCA and all local arts councils for doing all that they do to keep arts alive in our communities.

If you didn’t make it out this time, next year consider joining us for an excellent time with an amazing group of people!

Here are a few pics from this year’s shindig to whet your appetite (I’m not going to lie, a lot of them are of me).
