Valentines Day Dinner Dance
Beautiful Grand Piano.
Couples came to hold each other closely and dance.
Everyone enjoyed great food and great company.
In addition, this beautiful location provides a high level of service that inspires relaxed natural conduct. Ladies conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen remember their manners and conduct themselves as gentlemen.
Regarding this high level of service please see: The Value of Interest
Elegant Music Jazz Trio
The Elegant Music Jazz Trio (Piano, String Bass, Drums) provided soft background music early in the evening including Ballads, Love Songs and Bossa Nova. Later we cut loose and played Swing Dance and Contemporary Music.
I really enjoy playing with this band; Jim Garafalo on String Bass and Gary Myers on Drums and Vocals. Very sensitive players who really know how to support me as a soloist. We started with a quiet version of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack. As the room filled up with more diners and dancers we brought up the energy.
The evening included:
Deja Vu, Issac Hays
18th Variation on a theme of Paganini by Rachmaninoff
In the Still of The Night, Cole Porter
Just My Imagination by the Temptations
Sway, Luis Demetrio
In the Mood, Glenn Miller
I Love You Like A Love Song, Selena Gomez
Get Lucky, Daft Punk
Suggested by my wife Sheila the trio even performed a “parlor song” originally published in 1901 “I Love You Truly” by C.J. Bond. You would recognize this song if you have ever watched the motion picture “It’s A Wonderful Life” with James Stewart and Donna Reed. So romantic!
The Perfect Evening
The right music contributes to the atmosphere of any event; formal or casual. The best party is always the next party :-)
