The Square One Band recently had the pleasure of playing at a lovely wedding at the White Columns in Alpharetta GA. The photographer for the event, an extremely talented Wes Roberts of Wes Roberts Photography, was kind enough to send some photos to the band of that excellent evening. Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!
Many people are not aware of all the excellent options available in North Georgia to host their wedding; the Square One Band has played a lot of amazing events in North GA so we thought it would be helpful to share some of these venue’s websites with you as you make your decision to host your special day. Enjoy!
Square One recently performed at a wedding where the groom asked for specific “no so well know” songs/artists to be played during the reception. The results were what we expected. While the groom and a few members of the wedding party enjoyed the songs, the majority of the guests did not. They stayed off the dance floor, had some strange looks for the band, and all-in-all, seemed apathetic to any type of celebratory mood.
After a brief band huddle between sets, the band decided to start the second set with what we knew would work. Sure enough, the guests’ moods quickly turned from reserved to raucaus, and the groom was very happy to see that his wedding night would be remembered as a great evening of fun!
Point being, a wedding is about having FUN. So, although there may be songs or artists that you are really fond of, those same songs or artists might not be exactly what is needed to create an exciting party-like atmosphere for your guests. “Standard wedding songs” are usually standard for a reason; people like to hear them!
Thanks for listening!
The Square One Band played a private function recently and had a great time. The attendants were in full celebration and the band was rocking! Here are some pics from the event!
Because it is so easy to get everwhelmed as your big day approaches, I thought it might be appropriate to look at some potentially overlooked wedding day scenarios. This helpful article is a great reminder of some of the many things to look out for and avoid!
And remember, one way to avoid having an entertainment nightmare is to hire The Square One Band for all you musical needs!
I recently came across the website listed below, which discusses music choices for weddings. I know it is sometimes difficult to choose the right first dance song, the father-daughter dance song etc, for your event. Ultimately, it is up to the individuals choice and not what the masses think. However, I think the link below will provide you with some helpful hints on picking the right music.
Remember, if you don’t see a song on our songlist that you would like to have played for one of your dances, let us know and we will make every effort to learn it!
