Back during the late spring and early summer of this year, I began to feature Charleston wedding playlists here on the blog that represented certain major cities of the country. Those blog posts featured many artists and bands that came from each one of those cities. Many brides and grooms come down to Charleston from large cities like Boston, Chicago, and Philadelphia to get married. So, extensive research was done to determine which major musicians and bands resided or originated from these cities. It was a fun series of blogs that were designed to give those brides and grooms who have been flocking to Charleston some ideas on how to bring some of their music down here to provide some of their hometown flavor to make their wedding reception even more all about them. When the music is TOTALLY about the bride and groom some amazing things happen. Well, after three consecutive blog posts in the late spring, things got busy for me with wedding season, and I lost a bit of the momentum I had with that series and realized recently that the series still had some legs. The series still had legs because I had neglected to complete a post about the biggest city in America, New York City. New York City was the birthplace to many genres of music. To say the music the music of New York City is "diverse" would be an understatement. College courses could easily be developed to discuss the music of New York City.
If you are just now finding this website and blog and are wondering why a professional wedding DJ based around the Charleston, SC area is now talking and blogging about the musicians and bands from Chicago, please read on. Please read on especially if you are in the Windy City right now and are looking at all the pretty sights that the Holy City of Charleston has to offer. Set your sights on this. It's early January and you just got engaged over the holidays. You look outside your Lake Shore Drive apartment and the snow is blowing up against your window. The temperature outside is a balmy 18 degrees and the wind is blowing in off the lake at a blustery 40 mph. You and you are fiance are cuddling in each other's arms watching the flakes kiss the window and window sill. You turn to each other and give each other a kiss on the check thinking about your future together and begin to share the beauty that will be the most important day of your life. Your minds both drift to more of a spring setting, perhaps a place in the South, maybe near the water with numerous historic plantations. After much research, I give you the third part in my series of posts for destination couples living in major metropolitan cities who are coming to beautiful Charleston, SC for their destination wedding.
