*** Warm County Chic weddings call for warm Country Chic music->
With warm sunny days rolling in this week, we are all beginning to fantasize about hot summer days once again. Although we are still at least a few weeks from breaking out our short shorts and boat shoes, we are starting to get a glimpse of what that relaxed summer glow will feel like once again (we promise these glorious better days will be here soon!)
Summer weddings have a certain magic to them. With the long evening sun followed by golden sunsets comes a relaxed feeling of calm happiness. Especially outside of the boundaries of the GTA, there are many weddings we perform at where the mood is set before we even get there. Warm & sunny afternoons in The Muskokas and Niagara-On-The-Lake call for equally warm & sunny songs to match the atmosphere.
COUNTRY CHIC is a genre we have invented over the past few seasons that includes songs from a few different warm & happy genres including: COUNTY, FOLK ROCK & WARM OLDIES. What we can guarantee is that any time you get a band playing any of these brilliant songs on a beautiful summer evening, you can expect singing & dancing before the sun goes down (maybe even some boot-stomping too!) Here's to warmer weather everyone, better days are ahead!
CURATED COUNTRY These are the country songs that get your boots stompin''. Fiddles, Acoustic Guitars and Cowboy Hats with a tasteful amount of twang. They are as recognizable as Shania Twain and will add a touch of old timey summer love to your dance.
