On Saturday June 25, Central Park Orchestra, a band usually associated with music for weddings or wedding band, performed on top of Masthope Mountain in Lackawaxen, Pa. The ski lodge, usually filled with skiers and snowboarders, was packed with mountain residents that came out to dance and party. As you gazed over the stage where the band was playing you could see the Pocono and Catskill mountains in the background through the lodge windows.
Out of the couple of hundred people who were in attendance, there were actually several couples that had the band play at their weddings in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Robert Holmes, manager of the Iroquois Hotel in New York City, was in attendance. Central Park performed the music at Robert’s wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau in New Jersey. Robert even called the NY Orchestras office on Monday to say what a great time he and his wife Jennifer had. “I was so happy to be able to hear you guys and really listen because my wedding went by so fast. I can’t believe how you go from Pink and Katy Perry to Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. It was fantastic! I felt like I was in the first row at a concert.”
Earlier that day the band performed at Woodloch Pines, a world famous resort in the Poconos. Bill Morgan Messinetti, bandleader for Central Park, helped Dorothy and Paul Bakos plan their wedding at Woodloch. The Bakos’ expressed their thanks for the several special requests the band learned for the nuptial.
Many thanks go out to the staff at Masthope Mountain Community and the owners of Woodloch Pines, Bob and John Kiesendahl, for their hospitality.
