White Wedding - 27 Union Square West 4/10/10 New York City
My First Wedding,.... Performing at one that is.
One of the most humbling Lesson's for a musician is not only in serving the music but also in serving your employer. There is no room for ego in the wedding setting and it was quite a different experience sitting on the bandstand while speeches went on in front of me. I expended little to no kinetic energy for the first half of our performance as I played at a very low energy level so the guests could talk to each other and enjoy the delicious Sri-Lankan foodstuffs.
The band performed very well and Spiccoli made all of the requested announcements with aplomb and benevolence.
