Ed called us one day and tasked us to put together a similar concept to a scene from the movie Love Actually. Two weeks was what we had to get musicians, arrange the song, rehearse and plan the secret execution of this recessional surprise. The keynote of the brief: Have his bride touched to tears, else we don’t get paid. Of course we did. And enjoyed every bit of putting it together.
Three Days. Three Shows. Three Jazz Bands.
The Summertimes Big Band. The Tanglin Rose Band. The Summertimes Jazz Orchestra
