This time of year I play many piano concerts that end with full audience sing alongs of Christmas and Holiday music. I usually invite about 10 people to join me at the piano (either on stage or at seating level depending on the piano position) to be the sing along leaders and select the songs to be sung. Last weekend at the Locust Valley Library I noticed two very young children in the front row who listened to the piano concert with full attention and were taking part in the sing along. I invited the two young children to join me at the piano to lead in two songs they knew such as Jingle Bells.At the end of the program the children wanted to talk to me to thank me for having them sing with me. Their mother said it made such a wonderful impact on the children to feature them in front of the entire audience.

This past weekend at the end of one of the concerts I played I invited the entire audience to join around the piano in the Christmas and Holiday sing along. There was a woman in a wheel chair in the front row who could not walk but wanted to be at the piano. She asked several people to help her walk to the piano and hold onto to her so she could sing along with everyone else. It was so emotional – my eyes were so watery that I did not think I would be able to continue. To be able to bring unplanned joy to someone and to children at this time of the year is what makes performing so magical and satisfying. I wish everyone a happy and rewarding holiday season.

BAND DJ ORCHESTRA COMBINATIONS
With the growing diversity required by brides and grooms a new trend is developing in wedding reception music. The emergence of the BAND DJ ORCHESTRA COMBINATION on Long Island and in the New York area.
Many brides and grooms and their families seek the elegance and excitement of a live band. The wide appeal of the current club music also bring in the desire to hear the original artists. Rather than settling for one aspect (Band or DJ) brides and grooms are now looking at the BAND DJ Orchestra Combination.
Prior problems with having a Band and a separate DJ is that twice as much space is required. Also two completely different sound systems. The new BAND DJ ORCHESTRA combination has the DJ set up within the band – at NO EXTRA COST to the client.
A bride and groom can have the very latest music on the radio for their wedding (music that was just released that week) and still have the elegance and excitement of a live band performing for their wedding. This is also becoming a tremendous factor in mediating the differences in opinions between brides and grooms as well as between the future couples and their in-laws.
This now allows a bride and groom to stay within their music budget by contracting a 5, 6 or 7 piece band with the DJ set up included. The bride and groom can make up a list of every song to be played with the DJ set up.
Parents who want a band are now more willing to help out with the costs of the music. This now enables everyone attending the wedding to say “My kind of music was performed” regardless of the age group. No age group is excluded and it guaranteed a packed dance floor.
Catering establishments love the idea since it is not taking up any extra space designated to the performing area. Wedding planners and consultants love the idea because it gives them a tremendous flexibility in their proposals to clients. Everyone comes out a winner with this new trend.
One extremely importation additional benefit is that there is non stop music for the entire reception. No breaks. Guests can always be dancing when ever they want.
This is a superb idea for buffet receptions, tent weddings as well as traditional sit down wedding receptions.
Clients love the idea because it eliminates the complaint of “the music is taking a break”

I am thrilled that STAN WIEST MUSIC is recommended in the current issue of NEW YORK WEDDINGS -The Essential Guide for the 8th year in a row

“This agency provides an array of bands and DJs- think mariachis, steel-drum ensembles, strolling violinists, and musicians well versed in Persian and Greek music. It’s a favorite among Dixieland fans, sitar aficionados and bagpipe enthusiasts. The band and DJ combo packages are especially popular for weddings.”
