The Drake Hotel
Molly & Angelo met while working together at NBC in South Bend, IN, and they chose one of our very favorite ballrooms for their wedding day, the Gold Coast Room at the Drake.
From our first conversation together, we knew that this party merging Irish, German, and Sicilian traditions was going to be off the charts! There were so many special moments to remember: Artistrings pop string quartet kicked things off for cocktail hour, family friend and tenor Tony Milioto brought down the house with O Sole Mio and Nessun Dorma during dinner, dancing featured an extended tarantella for all guests to enjoy, and we learned Allentown/Billy Joel for Angelo’s home town. Check out Angelo and his dad singing a special Italian song together – the sweetest moments ever!
Molly & Angelo wanted to celebrate with an East-Coast style (New York style) wedding, so once we entered the Gold Coast Room for dinner service, we got everyone up to dance for a few minutes. We love how a NY style wedding gets the energy of the wedding up from the minute the reception starts, it’s so much fun! Here’s an uncut video clip of part of this dance set, so you can see how we transition between tunes to keep everyone on the floor.
We featured this smaller 8 piece band for dancing between courses, and then our Unplugged vocal quartet with acoustic guitar and cajon during dinner service. For dancing after dinner, we expanded to the full 11 piece band (with horn section). More video coming up soon, and our most sincere thanks to Nicole Zenner and her team from LK Events for making everything so easy 🙂

Westmoreland Country Club
Annie & Mike’s wedding was an amazing summer night in Wilmette, with flawless coordination by Loreen and her team from Clementine Custom Events. From cocktails on the Crabapple Patio, to dinner in the tent, and dancing inside the club, these party-goers were there to celebrate the union of a bride from Milwaukee and a groom from Connecticut. From classic rock to current hits and country too, we played it all, and ended the night with their favorite tune, Van Morrison’s Caravan. With the dance floor chanting for an encore, we brought out one more tune that ended the night perfectly. Your Song circled everyone around Annie & Mike, and ended spontaneously in the best group hug we’ve ever seen.
Congratulations, guys. What a party!!

W Hotel – City Center
This bride & groom had two wishes when we sat down and chatted about their wedding day: great champagne, and to have everyone up and dancing the whole night.
Well, the champagne was flowing, and check out this dance floor! Win-win. From the first dance set before we began dinner through the last dance of the night, we all had a blast celebrating New York Style with this fun couple. All of our best wishes to Alexandra & Ryan for a long life together of good health, happiness and success!
Thanks for the kind words and the five-star review on Wedding Wire, Alexandra!
After much deliberation we choose Carol Sarlas’ band. We wanted a band that would keep people on the dance floor all night and they did just that! Carol and Chris were very personal and professional during the planning process. I would not hesitate to use them again!
