    Penguin Music Plays Beatles and Christina Perri at Brooklyn Winery

    Sunday, August 16th, 2015

    A couple of weekends ago, Penguin Music had the pleasure of again playing at Brooklyn Winery, a venue we have come to love over the years.


    They have a great room to do the ceremony in that just has a great vibe and energy to it, as well as acoustics!

    And then, what better a setting for a cocktail hour than a wine bar? Great food, great drinks, and an upscale, swanky, but rustic vibe.

    This weekend, we got to play a mostly-Beatles ceremony, with “In My Life” for the processional, and “Blackbird” for the recessional. The bride walked down to Christina Perri https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtOvBOTyX00

    This is a great bride walkdown, and has the nice cello part at the beginning!


    Penguin Wedding at the Green Building in Gowanus

    Saturday, August 15th, 2015

    What a great wedding – but HOT!

    A classic set of choices for the ceremony – they selected “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by IZ (jazzy version) and then went to “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis for the Bride (one of my favorites). The ended with “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles – how could you get much better than that?

    If you haven’t been to the Green Building, it is an awesome space – really nicely done, lots of space, right down in the heart of Brooklyn. A beautiful space and lots of fun to play because it is always well organized and full of people who know how to handle every situation.


    FUN Wedding Music at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City

    Saturday, August 15th, 2015

    So, I gotta say, sometimes we get good music picks from clients of Penguin Wedding Music, and sometimes we get GREAT ones!

    I loved this selection! They went with Talking Heads, “This Must be the Place”, for their processional, which was a great tune to walk down to! Uptempo and fun, a great pump-you-up for the guests.

    Next, they went classical with “Here Comes the Bride”…who could argue?

    Lastly, “Tonight” by the Smashing Pumpkins…so awesome – sometimes I am genuinely psyched to learn a tune for a wedding, and this was one of those times!

    Also, if you don’t know about this venue, you must check it out. It is old-school, really cool, laid back but still has a fancy vibe. In short, very awesome. Check it out here – http://www.metropolitanbuilding.com/weddings/

    Great Jewish Wedding at DUMBO Loft with Penguin Music!

    Saturday, August 15th, 2015

    OK, so normally, I wouldn’t call a wedding out as Jewish, Roman Catholic, or any other denomination…we do lots of great weddings at Penguin Music and they are all awesome.

    But, when they are listed on a blog like this one, it is worth mention… 


    This venue, The Dumbo Loft, is an eye-popping place for anyone who wants to get married in Brooklyn without sacrificing any swag. We did a couple of unique covers, including a track “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros…come on, I know you all know it!
