The key to a successful wedding is unlocked in the magic of the music. And wedding tunes are not just for the introduction of the bride and groom, your first dance as man and wife, or the cake cutting ceremony, but the ability to get everyone from toddlers to grandparents and all ages in between shaking their booty on the dance floor. So what better way to accomplish this than to have a full service orchestra with a personality and front man whose warmth and charisma will make the affair exceptional plus the added attraction of a dynamite female vocalist? With more than twenty years of experience The David Christopher Orchestra will rock your wedding with their goal to create an unforgettable event for you and your guests.
“Weddings are a combination of elegance and class that provide a lifetime of memories, but it’s the band’s chemistry that gets the guests involved,” says David Christopher “You really do only have one chance to get it right! That’s not just our slogan, it’s the truth! It’s fun to have your guests up and dancing, no matter what their age. And even in this economy, people enjoy a full service orchestra. A Disc Jockey just plays CDs, and while we do offer that service along with continuous music and music for your cocktail hour, having full entertainment provides an aura, a special magic, that lingers well into the night and for years afterwards. We custom design the approach so it’s not like a cookie cutter orchestra. Sometimes weddings seem like you’ve been there before, but we take the time to involve everyone in the initial meetings.” Whether you desire a five piece band or a full service orchestra, the choice is tailored to your own desires. A five piece band includes a keyboard, drums, sax, guitar, and Chel Rae, who was voted best vocalist in Atlantic City by “At the Shore News”.
Additional pieces can be added starting with a trumpet, trombone, percussionist and additional lead vocalist that enables the customers to set the mood. “We know more than a thousand songs, and our customers choose from the latest pop music (like Fergie, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani) to big bands, ’80s songs from singers Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart, Journey, Abba, Disco, Motown and Rock,” explains Christopher. “We also do standards from the 40s like Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble’ and more, as well as popular dances. We perform all ethnic music when asked, and we know all the Italian, Jewish, Latin, Polish and Spanish songs as well as others. Our vocalist, Chel Rae, gets standing ovations when she sings “Con Te Partiro” (Time to Say Goodbye) by Andrea Bocelli. But we also learn any songs our customers would like us to play, as well as offering a CD of the night’s music. Many times the bride and groom will write their own song and we compose music for them.”
No matter what preference will make your affair memorable, The David Christopher Orchestra will make your dreams come true whether it’s a wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, corporate parties and more.
