Summer Recap Time!!

Well, the holidays are fast approaching and so we figured this would be a good time for a recap of this summer’s parties and happenings. We’ve been so busy this year we’ve barely had time to stay in touch with you all, but if you’ve been following us on Instagram you’re ahead of the game. Here are some of our favorite pics from the grooviest parties of the summer (yes, we’re bringing back groovy – pass it on).

Thanks so much to all of our wonderful clients, those featured here and all the rest, for an amazing season! We can’t believe how fast it went by, but now we’re heading right into Holiday Party season, so stay tuned…

 

Date: June 18th

Location: The Water’s Edge, LIC, NY

First Dance: All I Want Is You by Tristan Prettyman

B and L Cake1

Bianca and Lycean are two busy ER docs in the midst of their residency, so when they asked us to play for their wedding on a Thursday night we were more than happy to accommodate them. Their schedules keep them occupied all weekend long, but hey – we’ll rock out any day of the week, any time of day! The couple chose a band/DJ combo package to suit their very eclectic taste, which is something we’ve been doing a lot more of lately. It’s a lot of fun for us, we get to dance too. We even learned some new moves!

Bianca and Lyncean danced the night away!

Bianca and Lyncean chose Tristan Prettyman’s version of the Barry Louis Polisar song, All I Want Is You (the song that was made popular by the movie Juno). It’s a song that is as sweet as the couple themselves.

The room was decked out in origami details from the center pieces to the cake decor. A really nice touch that someone must have spent hours on.

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 😉

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…

Date: April 17th

Location: Bourne Mansion, Oakdale, NY

First Dance: Someone Like You by Van Morrison

Last Dance: Ho Hey by The Lumineers

CassieandMike1

Cassie and Mike are simply adorable. They chose the beautiful, historic Bourne Mansion on Long Island for their wedding. A great spot by the water that was the perfect backdrop for the day. Their request list was varied and a lot of fun for us, a few new tunes got added to the song list that night!

Cassie and Mike had a friend perform the ceremony for them, which is just such a wonderful and personal touch. Their ceremony was both touching and humorous. Nothing beats having someone who really knows you as a couple perform your ceremony for you, except maybe having our guy Danny lay down the sweet sweet solo guitar jams. For Cassie and Mike there was Crazy Love by Van Morrison, Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole and When I Paint My Masterpiece by Bob Dylan.

CassiandMike2

Cocktails and appetizers were accompanied by solo guitar in the solarium and featured two signature cocktails representing the bride and groom’s hometowns. Cassie and Mike had the most adorable beer koozies made to commemorate the night as well.

As the party moved into the reception room Nite-Time introduced the bridal party into the room to Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars. We love that tune! For the first dance, Cassie and Mike chose Someone Like You, a classic by Van Morrison with a hint of I Wanna Grow Old With You from The Wedding Singer with Adam Sandler. Everyone got up on the floor to celebrate the bride and groom and they kept it rockin’ all night. Cassie danced with her dad to Lullaby by Billy Joel which always gets everyone teared up. Then we took it right into The Belle of Belfast City, a traditional Irish song, that gave Cassie’s sisters a chance to dance to a family favorite. Mike and his mom chose What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong, another great classic!

Cassie and Mike like a wide variety of music, some of the highlights of their request list include: Treasure by Bruno Mars, Shake it Off by Taylor Swift, Rosalita (always a favorite of Nite-Time) by Bruce Springsteen, Galway Girl by Steve Earle and Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon. We ended the night with the new classic Ho Hey by the Lumineers it’s becoming a party anthem in it’s own right and it’s a great way to cap off a wonderful evening.

We had such fun planning with and playing for Cassie and Mike. Here are some cool pics we snapped at their wedding…

Honorees: Lisa Fox Martin and Betsy Jacks of The Thomas Cole National Historic Site

OK, it’s kind of hard to rock while you’re rocking a mask…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We want to thank the GCCA for having us back. We’ve had a great time for the last few years at this event and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year! This year’s event was a masked ball again and it’s always fun to get a little kooky.

We helped raise money for the arts (and you know that’s always needed) and had a great party in the process. This year’s honorees are two amazing women who have done more than I can say to bring The Thomas Cole National Historic Site into prominence within the world art community. Thomas Cole is considered by many to be the father of the Hudson River School of American art. For more information, or to get involved go to: www.thomascole.org.

If you’d like to learn more about the Greene County Council on the Arts or to donate to this amazing organization that works tirelessly to enrich the lives of artists and art lovers alike in the Hudson Valley you can check out: www.greenearts.org.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s some great shots from the night!

Hello Again from Nite-Time!

Many of you have asked where, when or how you can get to see Nite-Time live. Since we mostly perform at private events this can be difficult sometimes. We’ve begun doing some public performances recently and they’ve been a lot of fun, but there are still a lot of people that haven’t been able to make it out. So, by popular demand, I am happy to announce the launch of our very own YouTube channel. “It’s about time!” you may say, and you would be right. We’ll be collecting video to post as often as possible so that you can experience Nite-Time live without leaving your laptop, or iPhone – although we’d love to see you out sometime!

Nite-Time Live at the P&G in NYC!

Yves has been feverishly working on editing and uploading video from some of our recent performances, we’ll be adding more today and all this week, so keep checking back!

Also, if any of you have video from past events that you’d like to share, email Yves or me and we’ll post it on the YouTube channel.

NiteTimeNYC YouTube Channel

As always, thanks for your love and support. We’ve got some more public shows coming up, we’ll keep you posted. Until then, here’s to another great party season! We’ll be kicking it off this weekend in Princeton!
