Henry Marks Reviews: Kevin Osborne Band at Angel Orensanz

An excerpt fro the Green Letter Press blog:

From the Bride… Jonathan and I met at a music festival in 2008. We became fast friends and began dating a couple months later. When I’m not spending long hours in the law school library and he’s not working on a big case at his firm, we spend most of our life in Technicolor and neon. So, the Angel Orensanz Foundation on the Lower East Side of New York City was the one and only place – both aesthetically and spiritually – where we could get married. We knew we wanted to pay homage to our roots and our faith, but more than that, we loved the old Bohemian charm of this venue, New York City’s oldest synagogue. Jonathan and I are music lovers so entertainment – both ceremony and reception – was key. I had been to a wedding with the Kevin Osborne Band before getting engaged so the choice to enlist him to entertain at our nuptials was obvious. After Angel Orensanz, Kevin was the next decision we locked in. We knew he could keep the dance floor packed (which he did all night) but was also open to playing some of the unconventional wedding songs like “Not Fade Away” by the Grateful Dead. He also helped us assemble an ensemble orchestra to play classical arrangements of our favorite songs, including Jonathan’s processional – “Across the Universe” by the Beatles. As a surprise for Jonathan, I walked down the aisle to string version of “Divided Sky” by Phish, our favorite band.
