CTO Park Central performed for an elegant wedding under the stars this weekend in Haverford Pa. I was able to visit this wedding and ran into an good friend and excellent photographer Mike Kerr of MK Photography.
Same place Greenville Country Club same band CTO Fifth Avenue, same tent! Just a few hours later!!!! Great job CTO Fifth Avenue!
CTO Tribeca here on Friday evening @ the Radnor Valley Country Club, for this wedding I walked in during the cake cutting. Notice everyone is on the dance floor with all of the CTO Artists we get as much participation as possible. In this instance I walked right in during a dance set. The cater then informed the bandleader they should announce the cake. This is where our "ART OF THE PARTY" shines. We have the experience & knowledge to make sure your party goes exactly according to the pre planned timeline.
Saturday evening CTO Tribeca performed in the Rose Garden room Philadelphia's classic event space @ Hyatt Bellevue. When I walked in they were performing a current song "Home" and the entire audience was singing every word with the group.
CTO Park Avenue "NO CHALLENGE" @ Greystone Hall. Greystone Hall is an amazing sprawling estate in mint condition. This place feels untouched by time. The owners keep this place immaculate and are very strict on how you enter the site and volume. CTO Park Avenue took on this challenge by bringing no amplifiers and an electronic drum kit. In effect this ment there was one volume knob for the entire band and the sound tech had full control. Michael who runs Greystone was very pleased. You will notice this is a fairly large wedding and the stage in this instance was fairly small. We are often asked "Can you fit the entire band??" Our answer is always yes! Also notice the people talking who are right next to the band. Imagine having a 11 piece band performing right next to you and you can talk with no problem! To say the least this was a complete success and we look forward to returning to the Greystone again and again! As I was making my way thru the evening I had the pleasure of bumping into Tim Sudall, long time veteran and amazing talent from Video One.
Below: Pre wedding @ the Hotel Dupont in their grand ballroom: CTO Grand Central rehears a special dance. CTO Artist always arrive SUPER early to set up, sound check and rehearse special dances. This is in additional to their regularly scheduled rehearsals. This is an amazing Mother/Daughter sound. This was about 60 minutes prior to the start of the wedding. Right after this song the keyboardist was off the the Dubarry room to perform for cocktails. We also had the great pleasure of working with an amazing photographer: Alison Conklin
The next day I received an email from the Hotel Dupont:
"CTO Grand Central from yesterday was fabulous, and so easy to work with! Martin was so wonderful and flexible, so I definitely can't wait for CTO to come back! : ) "
