Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music

Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music.

Another unforgettable wedding,  another day to remember with joy.

Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music

I have had the privilege of sharing the special day of hundreds of married couples throughout my musical career.  In Melbourne,  I regularly  perform at corporate events, private parties,  jazz concerts and at my own creative guitar concerts. When I perform at weddings, magic occurs. Either when I play solo or in duo, the careful planning with the bride and groom of the musical to be played , how and when, create the ideal scenario for music to come alive.

At my last wedding ,at the Brighton International Wedding Venue, I was delighted to see how the bridesmaids walked in sync to my compositions towards the ceremonial area. Such beauty in movement enhances the beauty of my playing.

Music is an important part of our lives and weddings can be the foundation stone of such. I believe playing the correct music for a ceremony and or reception, enhances the beauty we deserve on one of the most special days of our lives.

The Brighton International Wedding Venue. (The International of Brighton)  have a delightful garden where the ceremony is held. The interior is also most adequate and spacious. I must also compliment the food and the service. The waiters were extremely into my ethnic playing or interpretation of 70s 80s 90 hits.

Here you may find all the the upcoming dates of my new concerts in Melbourne at the Paris Cat or at the Armadale Uniting Church.

Melbourne Weddings

Melbourne Weddings represent a joyous social occasion. I feel delighted every time my music fills the air and accompanies the bride, groom, family and friends on the start of this journey, of this special commitment we all long for. I cannot help, but to smile with joy, every time the crowd roars with applauses, once the married couple is finally presented as Mrs and Mr.

The acoustic music, our Melbourne Duo, chooses for the ceremony and reception, must be performed in a manner that accompanies the beauty and joy of the special occasion. It is our job to make all guest feel radiant and take home with them an ever lasting memory.

For all our Melbourne weddings, our  acoustic duo meets up with the bride and groom to plan what music will be played and when. We also decide on the most appropriate wedding ceremony composition, dance tunes and bridal entrance themes. It is our objective to create the desired ambience, with our Melbourne acoustic duo, to accompany the bride, groom and all the guests from the very beginning of the day until it is time to rest and go home.

During the year 2016 I will be hosting a series of Melbourne Concerts . At these concerts I show case, not the music of our Melbourne Acoustic duo but my creative artistic values through flamenco and jazz.

If you are getting married soon and like to hear what I believe joy is, please drop me a line and I will definitely send you a complimentary pass to have you with me during one of my concerts.

In my upcoming Melbourne concert I will have the pleasure of having with me 26 couples, that I have had the honour of playing for them at their Melbourne weddings. I believe what will bring us all together again is to share the same concept of what music is for to feel good about life. Come and join us.

Australian Wedding Expos Songful Acoustic Duo

Why You Should Visit Australian Wedding Expos If You Are Planning A Wedding

If you are planning a wedding it would be a good idea to visit Australian wedding expos. If you do, you can get good ideas, talk to vendors and have a better idea of what you want to do on your special day. They are a way to start the process or to get a lot done all in one day.

When you go to the expo you will want to do so with enough time to check everything out. You don’t want to be rushed and have to miss anything because you run out of time. You want to be able to stop by every booth if you are able to so you can see what they have to offer.

If you know your wedding date already it will be easier for you to talk with the vendors. They can see if they are free that day and if they are not you can keep looking. You don’t want to waste your time looking into vendors that can’t work on your special day.

It would be a good idea to go to the Australian wedding expos with a wedding planning binder. That way you can put everything you need into it and write down notes. You might not be able to remember everything once you get back home.

While you are at the expo you will have a chance to look at dresses, photography, DJ services, try cake, try different foods and do a few other things to help you prepare for your wedding. There are a lot of things to look at and think about for your own wedding. Once you get home you will want to go over everything, especially if your future spouse was not able to go with you.

If you can, take your mom or a good friend to help you look at everything at the expo. They can help you decide on thing and it is fun to go there with other people. If you can, also take your future spouse. They probably have a lot of say in the wedding and would want to be apart.

Look in your local paper to find out about the expos. Make plans to go to a few of them to help you with your wedding planning. They are such a great help to get you ready for your wedding.

How To Find Melbourne Acoustic Music Lessons

How To Find Melbourne Acoustic Music Lessons

These days, many people are saying goodbye to hip-hop, rock and other contemporary music and looking for something that has a bit more soul. As a result, there is an increasing popularity when it comes to acoustic music. If you are looking to play this type of music and you are not sure where to go for lessons, here are a few pointers.

Melbourne Acoustic Music

Online Specialty Search Sites

There are sites out there that were created to help people in Melbourne find the music lessons they need. All you have to do on one of these sites is designate a few preferences and watch the system work on your behalf. Examples of inclusion criteria used to narrow down your options would be music type, location and gender of the instructor.

Head To Amateur Nights

This is a great resource for people seeking Melbourne acoustic music lessons. Talking to some of the performers can give you a great deal of insight. For example, if they went to a particular school and had a difficult experience with an instructor, this will give you a good idea of who needs to be crossed off your list of consideration.

Advertise On Bulletin Boards

You should try creating some type of advertisement and having it placed on local bulletin boards. Even if someone seeing it is not an instructor themselves, they may give you a call and lead you in the direction of someone that can help. Keep in mind that you sometimes have to pay a small fee in order to be considered for bulletin boards, but that will depend on the owner of the property where you want to post it.

Online Forums

There are countless forums out there devoted to melbourne acoustic music. Head to one of the forums that are popular with people from Melbourne and you will be on the right track. In some cases, there are sections of the site where people can advertise their services, so be on the lookout for something like this. Otherwise, browse around to see what you can come up with.

If you are looking for music lessons, they are not always easy to find. With that said, the advice here will certainly give you a push in the right direction. It may take a while before you are able to find someone who is a great fit, but be patient and keep looking.

Wedding Music Playlist Romantic love music

Wedding Music Playlist: Romantic love music,The Bridal Dance

The first dance as a couple.!!! In the wedding ceremony we swear to love. I believe in the dance we rejoice to our promise in silence sharing the moment with all our friends and family who inadvertently dance by our side . Please  consider including in your wedding music playlist some of the following recommendations.

Bridal Dance. wedding music playlist

There are  three French love songs that still make me cry when I hear them. Performed with Spanish guitar and vocals they can be the special treat of the evening as part of your wedding music playlsy.

Ne me quittes pas, de Jacques Brel.

 

 

I have translated some of the lyrics. Love can make you tingle  and these words do

Moi je t’offrirai
I could give you

Des perles de pluie
pearls of the showers

Venues de pays
that have come from lands

Ou il ne pleut pas.
where it doesn’t rain.

Je creuserai la terre
I would dig the earth,

Jusqu’apres ma mort
even after my death,

Pour couvrir ton corps
to cover your body

D’or et de lumiere.
with gold and light.

Je ferai un domaine
I will make a domain

Où l’amour sera roi,
where love will be king,

Où l’amour sera loi,
where love will be law,

Où tu seras reine.
where you will be queen.

Another of my favourite French Love Songs

Non, je ne regrette rien, de Edith Piaf

I quote and translate some of the lyrcis

Balayés les amours
(Swept away my past loves)
Avec leurs trémolos
(With their tremors)

Balayés pour toujours
(Swept away for always)
Je repars à zéro
(I start again from zero)

Non, Rien de rien
(No, nothing of nothing)
Non, Je ne regrette rien
(No, I regret nothing)

The Video

My favourite

Je l’aime à mourir by Francis Cabrel

and some of the lyrics that give me goosebumps

Je l’aime à mourir

I love her to death

Elle a gommé les chiffres

She erased the numbers


Des horloges du quartie
From the area’s clocks

Elle a fait de ma vie
She transformed my life into

Des cocottes en papier
Paper hens

Des éclats de rires
Bursts of laughter

Elle a bâti des ponts

She built bridges

Entre nous et le ciel
Between us and the sky

Et nous les traversons
And we cross them


A chaque fois qu’elle
Everytime she

Ne veut pas dormi
Doesn’t want to sleep

Ne veut pas dormir
Doesn’t want to sleep
