New York Wedding Band Central Park Performs at Oheka Castle Bridal Show

New York Wedding Band Central Park played music at a sold-out bridal show at the famous Oheka Castle on Long Island this past Sunday. The set started off with “Locked Out Of Paradise” by Bruno Mars, inspired by Bruno’s performance on the Grammys. The segue continued with “Call Me Maybe”, “Party Rock Anthem”, “We Found Love”, “Raise Your Glass” and ended with “Moves Like Jagger”. The group also touched on music of the 80s including Whitney Houston and Madonna as well as Bryan Adams and Guns N’ Roses.

Oheka Castle owner Gary Melius was in attendance as was his daughter, Kelly Melius. New York Orchestras’ Central Park was the band that performed at Kelly’s wedding.

There are wedding bands and there are bands that perform at weddings. Central Park is an exciting band of full-time musicians that not only perform at NY and LI weddings, they travel. This summer NY Orchestras bands will play at 4 weddings in Manchester Vermont at Hildene, home of President Lincoln’s family. Gurney’s Inn in Montauk and Raphael Vineyard are other popular Long Island stops for our wedding bands.

Also on hand at Oheka’s bridal show were wedding photographers and wedding videographers Camelot Studios, DMS Video Productions, Brett Matthews Photography.

Bill & Central Park Orchestra,

Holy smokes! What a show!! Rockin’ the field (Flowerfield) was an understatement. Encore was priceless. You guys got rave reviews from every guest. All my soon-to-be-married friends have you at the top of their “wedding must-haves” list. That is, they’re interested in the best wedding they could possibly have! The older crowd loved the music, the younger crowd loved the music & the bride & groom are still singing Tiny Dancer months later. We want to throw another party just to have you guys come back.

Man, you guys rocked it!

Thank you!!

Wedding at Hildene – Manchester, Vermont – Aug 18, 2012

New York Orchestras Entertainment performed at a wedding this past weekend at an historic site in Manchester, Vt. called Hildene.  It is the former home of Robert Todd Lincoln, the president’s only son.  The view is spectacular overlooking the Green Mountains.  For the music the client chose to bring a NYC wedding band up to Manchester, Central Park Orchestra, under the direction of Bill Morgan Messinetti.

Here is a note from the bride:

Bill,

Thank you for everything! Your band was amazing. The music got rave reviews and the party was great! You played a perfect blend of all the songs we had hoped for.

We had no idea my cousin would be playing Just Breathe (by Pearl Jam) on the guitar – that was so special to us and we truly appreciate you learning the song!

Thanks for contributing to our perfect day! We will certainly recommend your band to our engaged friends (though they were already taking down your information themselves!)

I just wanted to thank all the members of the Central Park Orchestra for putting on an awesome wedding for us.  The dance floor was filled the entire night.  Our guests have been raving about you.  My daughter’s new father-in-law had a blast playing the drums.  And my husband and brothers had a ball singing along to Valleri.

Bush family wedding brings Governor Christi

New York Orchestras Entertainment, a very well-known NY City music company that books NY wedding bands and DJs for weddings, recently had the pleasure of performing for someone in the Bush family.  The groom is a cousin of George W. Bush and the bride is a close family friend of Governor Chris Christi, governor of New Jersey.

While we respect the bride’s & groom’s wish to remain un-named, we can tell you that the family knows how to dance and have fun!  The couple could not have been more down-to-earth and nicer to work with.  Governor Christi was dancing all night long (literally) with his wife and daughter.  It was especially noticeable watching him singing along to his favorite Bruce Springsteen songs including “Glory Days”, “Hungry Heart” and “Born in the USA”.

The event was held at the Willowwood Arboretum, Far Hills, NJ.   We want to thank the staff at the Arboretum for their wonderful hospitality.  They made a the band feel right at home in New Jersey.
