Alan Andai Musician Services specializes in wedding events. The convenience of having a string ensemble perform for your ceremony, a jazz ensemble for the cocktail hour and finally the dance band with a DJ can all be accomplished through one source. Musicians are available for your wedding at any country club, private residence and even beachfront weddings.
The wedding ceremony music tends to be softer, usually classical wedding music or ballads. There should be about five songs played as a prelude when the guests are seated, then a special song when the mothers of the bride and groom are seated.
There are two songs during the processional, one when the bridesmaids enter, and the most dramatic as the bride walks up the aisle. The most joyous music is played in the recessional, when the bride and groom leave together.
There can be special songs at different points in the ceremony, such as after exchanging the rings and vows, lighting the unity candle,
The prelude repertoire begins as guests arrive to the ceremony. Appropriate pieces can include-Air, Greensleeves, A wedding thank you, the gift without a bow, Air on a G string, Minuet in G, Someone to Watch Over Me, A Fathers Song, Canon in D, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
The Processional occurs when the bridal party and the bride make their entrance most popular the Bridal March, Spring, Processional in D, Trumpet Voluntary or Beethoven's Fifth.
During the Ceremony these pieces accompany great as the Bride and Groom are married: The Wedding Song, Coming Home or Ode to Joy.
A unity candle is complemented when the Circle of Life is performed, Grow old with me, Give me Forever, Longer, From this Moment.
The recessional is the departure from the ceremony: The bridal Chorus, Wedding March, Chapel of Love, Trumpet Voluntary
As your guests arrive to the next venue, family members are left to take post wedding pictures. Imagine your guests being welcomed to a soothing saxophone or jazz vocalist accompanied by and acoustic bass, piano and drums as they sample hors d'oeuvre and sip champagne.
The next adventure is center stage to the dance floor where a high powered energy group performs the latest musical styles. Dancers are available upon request.
