Ashliegh-pete-330H-440W

Photo by Kamila Harris. This Spring 2015 wedding at the gorgeous, rural, and sprawling venue The Hill in the Hudson Valley was a wonderful experience to be a part of. This day’s sound was a great example of how a client’s strong opinions and influence of music style blended with my own selections to create a cohesive whole that worked together appropriately for... Read More

Wedding Playlist : The Metropolitan Building : Long Island City 2014

Metropolitan_Building_380H_440W

In addition to being an all-around spirited evening, this wedding was truly exceptional in my ability during post-dinner dancing to zero-in on a very specific sound (British & American Indie/Alternative of the ’70s—’90s with a dash of Electro-pop), and have the guests really go along with the ride. It is much more common to present a wider scope of sounds &... Read More

Wedding Playlist : Giando On The Water : Williamsburg 2014

Giando_CS_380H_440W

This was a very special night. The wedding took place on the 4th of July, so the Hudson River fireworks show was integrated into the evening. This sound was highly pinpointed, and was designed specifically to reflect the character of the couple. You’ll notice a lot of Indie, Twee, Neo-Shoegaze, Indie Electro, and Dance, with dashes of British Invasion, 80s Alternative, and... Read More
