The band had a great time last weekend playing an annual Christmas party last weekend in downtown Atlanta. Here are some pics from the event!
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!
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 often has the privilege of playing wedding receptions in the Asheville, North Carolina area. As there are many locations to choose from when planning your event, I thought this link might be helpful in making your choice for the perfect wedding location. It includes all the top spots for wedding events, some of which we have had the pleasure of performing at; hope it helps!
