Party @ Sherwood Country Club
We played nearly 4 hours through cocktail hour and dinner and then the client asked if we could continue the party at his home. This house (formerly owned by a renowned tennis player) is just up the hill from the country club and overlooks Lake Sherwood. There I found this beautiful Steinway concert grand piano that you see in the video. The rest of the house was equally impressive.
How I came to write “Brown Eyed Girl” Waltz Arrangement
Betsy who was getting married at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena had the idea that she wanted to walk down the aisle to Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”. I already had written an arrangement for the Elegant Music Quartet of this song that follows the original. But when Betsy played the melody of “Brown Eyed Girl” on my piano it was much more whimsical; I had never hear it interpreted in that way and it changed the way I thought about the song. The arrangement then seemed to write it self. The new version is a beautiful waltz.
I didn’t get the chance to record our quartet performing this new arrangement on her wedding day but this past weekend while playing a party in an incredibly beautiful home near the Sherwood Country Club, I did.
