    Penguin Music Plays Ceremony and Cocktail Music at Wainwright House in Rye NY

    Today we played yet another beautiful wedding at the Wainwright House in Rye, NY. The happy couple had an AMAZING day for their ceremony and reception, and we were happy to contribute to their event with music for both the ceremony and a lively cocktail hour. One new one for us was Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” – I am sure it will be a standard part of our cocktail rep going forward! See some pics below!

    Penguin Music Plays Ceremony and Cocktail Music at Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn

    Saturday, June 8th, 2013

    June 7 2013

    Today Penguin Music had the pleasure of playing right on the water at a beautiful venue, Liberty Warehouse, in Red Hook. (right next to Fairway!)

    Unfortunately, somebody forgot to tell the weather to behave itself! We got pretty drenched just getting from the car to the venue, and that is even with the valet service! Haha! By the time we left, the puddles were starting to turn into small oceans (we understand that this is no joke, we sincerely hope that everyone was safe getting home that evening and hope for the best with the rest of Red Hook, knowing that they had just started to recover from another terrible storm in Hurricane Sandy)

    Regardless of the incessant rain, there were nothing but rays of light at the now indoor wedding ceremony. After some heartfelt vows (and in between little barks from their canine pal), Penguin did a custom arrangement of “Rhythm of Love” by the Plain White Tees, and then went straight into a vibrant cocktail hour. Everyone seemed to have a great time while we played some Bossa jazz, some pop/rock classics, and ended with “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey. I was only able to grab a few pics, check them out below!

    Penguin Music Plays Wedding Ceremony Music at Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg!

    Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

    We had the pleasure of playing at Brooklyn Winery this weekend, which is a great venue located in Williamsburg. This was somehow, miraculously, the first time we had played here, but we look forward to many more. The staff was very accommodating, and on top of everything having to do with a very smooth and enjoyable ceremony!

    The bride and groom selected some great tunes for the ceremony, including ‘Postcards from Italy’ for the recess. Also, they had a member of the wedding family come and sing ‘Such Great Heights’ by Postal Service during the Ceremony with Penguin Music accompanying, which turned out very beautifully. All in all it was a great day with some great people. Check out the attached pictures and mp3’s!
