When Rock Stars Get Married, Who Plays The Reception?
Have you ever thought about that? It seems to me that if I was in a band, I'd probably want my band to play at my wedding reception.* But that seems problematic. Would the band play without me? Would I abandon my brand new husband to go play with the band? Would I take the stage for just one song, dedicated to said new husband? Would I know lots of other bands and get one of them to play instead? What if I married someone who was also in a band? Would both bands play? Would we sing a newly-wed duet? Maybe we'd have a rock opera type wedding and sing our vows. We'd have lighting techies instead of ushers! Cigarette lighters would be passed out before the ceremony for emotional hands-in-the-air swaying to the music!
Wow, the possibilities are endless, really.
*Just so there's no confusion, I am definitely not in a band and I am definitely not getting married any time soon.
or, you could pre-record your band(s) playing music for the reception, and just play the cds.
also, sung vows = scary, but lighters = hilarious.
