Dan & Claudia
Dan and Claudia came to me to have a wedding celebration in Concord NH where Dan grew up. They were already legally married so they just wanted something simple and low key for a fun reception! These two were such a cool couple and are so talented! “Grammy Award Winner Dan Zanes occupies a unique place in American music–where sea shanties, English Music hall, play party songs, the spirit of early rock-n-roll, soul, North American and West Indian folk music collide.”
Claudia is a Haitian-American jazz vocalist Music Therapist. Claudia wanted to incorporate her Haitian roots into their reception and celebration. To do so, a Haitian band was hired and Haitian food was served all night long! Another fun element was Haitian Rum shots as favors (which was a big hit among the guests)!
“Referred to as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” by Time Magazine, his critically-acclaimed music has been featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family and Sprout. Over the course of 14 albums and 2 DVDs, he has collaborated with everyone from Philip Glass to Lou Reed to Angelique Kidjo to Natalie Merchant to The Blind Boys of Alabama.”
Another cool aspect to this wedding was the homemade ginger beer brewed up by Dan’s mother who was a hoot and a half! I absolutely love this women! This was such a fun event, Dan and Claudia were incredible to work with and just such great people. They are loved by their wonderful families and I truly enjoyed every part of their special day! I was honored to be involved and wish them a lifetime of continued success on their music careers as well as health, wealth and happiness to them and their outstanding families!
Congrats you two! xoxo
