Uptown Rhythm Rocks the House!

The Chilton Medical Center was the reason for this benefit concert. Uptown Rhythm was a major success, the crowd loved them. You can hear the clapping in the background and sometimes people just got up off their seats and started to dance!

Uptown Rhythm is a great choice for concerts and corporate events like this one here. They, also, do private events such as weddings, anniversary parties, birthday parties, etc. Whatever you choose to celebrate, this is one of our most versatile bands. They do today’s top hits to perfection as well as Motown and Rock tunes.

In this video they perform a series of songs that are being played on the air, now.(June 2015)

Heating up the Reggae Steel Way

Reggae Steel brings the sound of the Caribbean to you.  The party isn’t
a party unless you have live entertainment.  We love the laid back sound
of the steel drum for any occasion.

will want to reserve this group for your next memorable event.  Whether
it’s a picnic at a farm in Connecticut, a beach party at the Jersey
Shore, or a Manhattan cocktail party…this trio of musicians will amp
up your cool factor.

small band ~ BIG SOUND!

 

PEARL:  Small Band ~ Big Sound

 

Pearl performs the Maroon 5 classic, “Moves Like Jagger.”

Pearl performs in the New York tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.  They are one of the few small bands left in the New York Metropolitan Area.  This musical group gets booked very fast and way in advance.

Over the past ten to fifteen years, we have noticed a trend in live music and concert bands.  The trend favors very large music groups.  Back in the 80’s and 90’s, our bands consisted of 4 – 6 members.  Most of our musical groups now have over ten musicians…the average being 12!  This larger groups usually travel with sound and light engineers, because of their size.  What this means to the average consumer is a greater price.  If you are planning a wedding, this really adds up to big bucks when you consider the added cost of feeding an extra 14 people at your wedding!

With only 5 core members, this band can go out as you see in the video or we can add a horn section for a bigger sound.  When we book Pearl at a concert, corporate event, or at a country club, they will usually perform with three more members:  trumpet, saxophonist and an extra vocalist.  When the Pearl Band gets hired for a wedding, the band is perfect the way you see here.

The added bonus!

When planning a party you have the  option of choosing either a steel drummer, guitarist, or pianist for the cocktail hour. The  guitarist in the band, also plays the steel drum.  We love the sound of a steel drum for those fun summer celebrations; whether you are having a birthday party followed by dancing or a beach wedding,  a steel drummer will add a special vibe that says, “the party starts here and now!”  If the piano player is chosen, then the tone is a more elegant and refined sound with a combination of jazz and classical tunes.

 

We call them a small band with a big sound. Perfect for small wedding receptions, parties, or for when you’re a little tight on space at your party venue.

This group of musicians has performed together for over 20 years.

Wedding Ceremony Magic ~ Trumpet Voluntary, Jeremiah Clarke

http://https://vimeo.com/99420911

The Prince of Denmark’s March is more commonly known as the Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke.

This piece of classical music is for the bride that wants to make a grand entrance into the church. Here it is being performed by a duo consisting of a trumpeter and the church organist. The musicians were up in the balcony, the acoustics in the church were spectacular and the music selection was very moving.

Please Note:  We usually recommend to our newly engaged couples that they hire the church organist. These musicians are familiar with the nuances of the particular instrument. Church organs vary greatly, so it is highly recommended that you contract the person most familiar with your church’s organ.

The Order of the Music at a Wedding Ceremony

Processional refers to the music that is being played as the bridal party enters the church, once all the guests are seated. One piece of music for the bridal party, then another for the bride.

The prelude refers to the music performed before the recessional, as the guests are being seated.

The recessional refers to the music at the conclusion of the wedding ceremony. The bride and groom exit first, followed by the bridal party, the parents, and the congregation. Modern couples are changing the rules to suit their needs, the family dynamics and their religion.

About this Song

It is customarily played as the bride enters the church with her father, the processional. The Prince of Denmark’s March was composed by Jeremiah Clarke. It is called The Prince of Denmark’s March, but commonly known as The Trumpet Voluntary.  It was composed for the keyboard, probably, around 1700. This music can be heard at a number of royal weddings, most notably at the 1981 wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Jeremiah Clarke

Jeremiah Clarke (c. 1674 – 1 December 1707) was an English baroque composer and organist.

Biography

Thought to have been born in London around 1674, Clarke was a pupil of John Blow at St Paul’s Cathedral. He later became an organist at the Chapel Royal. After his death, he was succeeded in that post by William Croft.

Clarke is best remembered for a popular keyboard piece: the Prince of Denmark’s March, which is commonly called the Trumpet Voluntary, written about 1700. From c. 1878 until the 1940s the work was attributed to Henry Purcell, and was published as Trumpet Voluntary by Henry Purcell in William Sparkes’s Short Pieces for the Organ, Book VII, No. 1 (London, Ashdown and Parry). This version came to the attention of Sir Henry J. Wood, who made two orchestral transcriptions of it, both of which were recorded. The recordings further cemented the erroneous notion that the original piece was by Purcell. Clarke’s piece is a popular choice for wedding music, and has been used in royal weddings. Most notably the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.

The famous Trumpet Tune in D (also incorrectly attributed to Purcell) was taken from the semi-opera The Island Princess, which was a joint musical production of Clarke and Daniel Purcell (Henry Purcell’s younger brother)—probably leading to the confusion.

The song Proud Mary was written by John Fogerty. It was first recorded by Credence Clearwater Revival (John Fogerty’s band) in 1969, and then again in 1970 by Ike and Tina Turner. It has since become a signature song for Tina Turner. Both versions of the song vary in style and energy, both versions have become well-loved classics.

Skyline Seven Brings Down the House!

Concert Event to benefit The Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains, New Jersey

“SHOUT”

This was the finale to an exciting evening featuring the music we know as Motown. The band members left their heart and soul on the stage! The audience was dancing in the aisles, singing along, and clapping to every song. All in all, a good time was had by all.

In this song, Shout, the singer went into the audience and they loved it. You can’t see him because everybody got up to join in the fun and excitement of the evening.

We love events like this one because everyone has such a great time and the funds raised go to a great cause.

Skyline Seven is a great option for a great party. Whether you are planning a wedding, a corporate event, or a fundraiser (like this one), when you book a large orchestra such as Skyline Seven, your party will surely be a hit. A great band makes the party memorable. The guests will forget the food, the venue, and the details; however, they will remember what a great time they had! The best way to ensure that your guests will truly enjoy the party is by having a great band.
