On Sunday September 27th we had the honor of performing at a wedding reception for a very unique bunch of friends and family ! For those of you that don't know, I am also a part time musician. I formed the Blackbird Society Orchestra in 1994 with the intentions of recreating the music of the "Jazz Age"- the 1920s-30s. We play music from the late 1800s to the late 1930s. The band can range from a duo to a full 10pc formal dance orchestra that reads authentic music charts from the 1920s/30s . That's me up there on the right playing guitar playing with my longtime musical friend Michael Salsburg on violin. This evening we were joined by a good friend of mine Scott Black on cornet. Scott has been playing for more years than he likes to admit(!) and is regarded as one of the best cornet players in Traditional Jazz. We have both shared the stage with Leon Redone over the past 10 years ( Scott for 25).
This evening was the celebration of Pat & Jiwooks wedding! They got married a few months back in California but since his family is from north NJ, they came home for a party...and what a party it was !
