Square One has performed at Park Tavern in Atlanta several times and ranks it as one of its favorite places to play in the Atlanta area. Its size is perfect for any size wedding, and its proximity to Piedmont park makes it a perfect location for weddings and other private events.

One of the more unique venues the Square One Band has performed at has been the Rustix Manor in Woodstock, GA. It’s layout and location is perfect for a large outdoor wedding, and even though it is located in a Woodstock, it has a much more rural feel because of the amount of acreage that belongs to the venue’s owner. In a word (or three), a very cool place! For more information, click here.
The band played in a town we don’t get too very often, Mobile, Alabama. Although it was a bit of a haul, the crowd’s enthusiasm during our set made it well worth the effort! The weather held out during most of the trip down, although it rained a bit during our load out, which is never fun. Regardless, it was a successful trip for the Square One Band, and we look forward to going back to Mobile next Summer when another show is planned there. Until next time!
One of the more memorable events that occur during the reception, especially for brides, is the Father-Daughter dance. Over the course of the last several years, Sweetwater Junction has been asked for advice on what to pick for this (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
Here are a couple of things to consider when picking that special song:
1) Tempo: How fast is the song? Unless you want to be doing a jitterbug, you may want to make sure the song is on the slower side. Trust me, I have seen many occassions where the song choice was far to fast, especially if the father of the bride is older.
2) Length: More often than note, dancing for more than four minutes or so may become a little awkward; remember, you will be the focal point for your guests. If you are naturally uncomfortable in the spotlight, you may want to pick a song that is shorter in length.
3) Lyrical Content: Obviously, you want to pick something that is appropriate and defines the kind of relationship you have with your father. With that, I have included a few links that include many choices for a Father-Daughter dance. Good luck in your decision making!
Square One was back in one of its favorite cities this last week, Charleston, SC. Fortunately, the weather behaved for the evening as the wedding was partially indoors and outdoors. The client and their guests were great and seemed to really enjoy the band. Here are some photos from the event.
The band had the pleasure of performing in Columbia, SC at the State Museum last weekend for a rambunctious Sorority Parent Function. Great crowd, and a pleasure to perform for these gracious hosts. A few blurry shots, but I guess better than nothing!
The band was on the coast this weekend, and it was a stormy one! Fortunately, the tent did its job and kept the gear and the guests (mostly) dry. Because of the constant change of plans due to the weather, I wasn’t able to focus on getting good pics with my camera, but I took a few with my phone. If it’s true about it being good luck for a couple for it to rain on their wedding day, then this bride and groom should be together for a long time!
The band recently performed at a beautiful wedding in Savannah: although the forecast called for rain, the sksy miraculously cleared right before the reception, and the crowd was able to enjoy the beautiful evening. I wasn’t able to get many pics, but took a few before the performance…
The Square One Band and all those that attended had a great time at a beautiful wedding at the Brasstown Valley Resort in North Ga last weekend. Although it was a bit chilly, that didn’t seem to stop the guests from dancing throughout the evening! The Sunset Pavilion at Brasstown is absolutely beautiful with incredible views, and is a great option for a weddings and other important events. Thanks so much to Photographer Andrea Taylor from Andrea Taylor Studios; She and her husband Rich were all over the event getting great pics, and after watching them in action (especially with their interaction with the crowd), I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a top-notch photographer for their wedding!
