[Wedding Playlist] • Battello, Jersey City—November 2019

Battello is a beautiful restaurant and private event venue situated on the picturesque Jersey City waterfront. With high ceilings and windows that surround the entire space, it offers stunning views of the Hudson River, Manhattan, and Jersey City. The groom and I (with whom I share many common musical interests) collaborated on an approach that started with a classic, jazzy sound…... Read More

[Wedding Playlist] • Smack Mellon, Brooklyn—September 2017

Smack Mellon, if you haven’t visited, is an art exhibition space & non-profit organization that exhibits exciting contemporary work, and often very ambitious and site-specific works. As a wedding venue, it’s one of my favorites in Brooklyn. Its DUMBO location is always bustling on the weekends, and the industrial-chic, textured look of the space gives a great contrast... Read More

[Wedding Playlist] • The Hill, Hudson Valley—May 2015

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.

Wedding Playlist : The Metropolitan Building : Long Island City 2014

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

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

Reception Playlist : Manhattan Penthouse Wedding : Manhattan 2013

This fun evening at a venue that I’ve played many times (Manhattan Penthouse) was very specific in it’s sound and focus. The bride & groom, along with myself, collaborated on a highly danceable sound that featured a lot of younger Indie bands, accented by some recent dance hits from the last decade, and complimented with a dash of 90s radio pop. • To see a particular... Read More

Reception Playlist : Bridgewaters Wedding : Manhattan 2012

This was one of those nights where everything just came together. A gorgeous venue with sprawling views of the South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Bridge and the East River, combined with guests that couldn’t have been more enthusiastic… added up to a rousing, action-packed evening. The sound was diverse as you can see, but leaned a little towards an All-American & Rock... Read More

Reception Playlist : Gates Avenue Wedding : Montclair, NJ 2011

This wedding which took place in a gorgeous private residence in Montclair, NJ was notable for it’s strong focus on sounds from the 70s. For cocktails and dinner, things leaned towards a more mid-tempo soulful sound, and for post-dinner dancing I explored lots of the great Disco hits of the 70s. It was a little overcast that day, but despite that, this was an ecstatic evening,... Read More
