Unique live Music, Something Different

Melbourne Unique live Music , Weddings

Something different

Songful believes music should be a sincere expression of our true inner feelings. Generally in our daily lives, we must reach compromises with those we love and also with those we meet along the way,  so we may all share our existence with balance and love.

unique live music

Live acoustic music is  about expressing what you wish to share with others. Music at weddings, and at all other stages of our lives, should express what helps bring us together. I believe live music has the power to unite us in peace. Unique live music at a wedding should also portray this feeling of communion.

Songful wishes to say thank you for all the beautiful moments we have shared in Melbourne weddings during the last 3 years.

We wish to continue delivering emotions that unif , that make us happy. We are continuously working hard at establishing new repertoires to help us achieve our goals of unique live music .

During the next few months I will be holding a series of Concerts in Melbourne. I would like to invite all future couples to experience my unique  live music. If you would like to come please send me an email. I will then forward you complimentary tickets to one of our performances. These are the dates of our next performances.

 

These  Melbourne music  concerts are staged at the Armadale Uniting Church. This unique live music event showcases my own compositions and also takes the audience through a contemporary musical journey through Spain.

My ancestry is Spanish,  even though I was born in Australia. I have lived in Barcelona for over 38 years . My music does have the Mediterranean Flamenco sound. The emotions, I express through my guitar, are a simple reflection of existence as a musician in Barcelona during this period of time.

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.

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.

Wedding Processional Music

Wedding Processional Music

Some things may seem easy than the really are. One of the most common example of this is the choice of the wedding processional music. It is only during the planning of the wedding that most brides come to the realization of this. The first dance song is very simple to choose because it carries with it some meaning and emotions value on   the couples side. The bride and the groom have a lot of questions to answer before you decide which music will play for hat great entrance. Some questions are, will the music have lyrics or not? Will the music be upbeat or subdued>? And finally is it classical or contemporary?

A wedding processional music is that song you will be dancing along with your wedding party during your wedding.  This happens when you will be walking down the aisle. You have two options to make. You may either choose a song for everyone or you may decide to choose on to choose a separate song for our grand music. The processional music should not be more upbeat than your recessional music. Your recessional song will happen when you are leaving the venue.

First of all, make sure that you do self-reflection. Try to see what type of music that you think will be of importance to you. Ask yourself if it is to remind you of that lovely moment or just to remind how your relationship is like.  This is your day and you do not need to rush yourself nobody should influence you to make them happy. Choose the song that is only important to you alone. Know that there is no time you will have all people like the same song. Go ahead and enjoy that favorite song and what will follow is a sweet procession.

Among the traditional choices, the here comes the bride ids the most popularity you go for the classical pieces. It is usually played with the use of an organ. A more modern and upgraded form that is good for you to try is the use of a classical piano. This will preserve the element of tradition while at the same time making sure that the usual drama associated with this type of song.

It has been hard for couples to decide between a classical instrumental and a modern like love song which has vocals accompanying it. If you find yourself fixed in this situation, there is something you can do without losing any one of the two. What about a blend of the two. Have an instrumental cover having one of your favorite vocals.

Do you have any particular film that you just keep remembering no matter how many years back you watched it? What about the soundtrack of that film? Can you imagine that you can walk down the aisle with that particular soundtrack you like? It will be accompanied by that personal touch that you may find yourself almost shedding those tears of joy and appreciate the decision for your marriage. The best thing is that you have hundreds to choose from.

Wedding music trends

What Are Some Of The Current Wedding Music Trends?

Are you currently focusing on planning your wedding? Although you might have some details planned out already, there are a few things that you may not be so sure about, such as the music that you will have played by the DJ during the reception. You want to be able to listen to music that you like, but you would likely want to please others who will be at the reception too, such as your parents and your partner’s parents.

Instead of stressing out about which songs should be played and which ones should be avoided, consider checking out some of the latest music trends. The trends may give you a bit of inspiration for what you would like to do for your own wedding.

Many brides are choosing upbeats songs for the reception because they want to encourage their guests to dance and have a good time. While some slow song selections are still popular, especially during the first dance between the married couple and the father/daughter dance or mother/son dance, you should still consider having many fun songs played by your live acoustic wedding band.

If you are not sure which songs would be fun to listen and dance to, consider adding tracks by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to your playlist. You may also want to add a few Michael Jackson songs. Even though those songs would be considered a bit old, it is a great way to mix things up and give everyone a chance to enjoy the music that is being played.

The dance-style songs are completely trendy. Want to get everyone, including your grandparents, on the dance floor? If so, consider choosing several fun selections, such as Single Ladies by Beyonce and Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5. You can add in a few oldies by The Temptations and Diana Ross to mix up the different generations of music too.

Along with the fun music, softer selections are trendy for the first dance that you will have with your partner. You can select any song that you like. For example, the two of you may have a song that reminds you of one another. One of John Legend’s songs, “All of Me”, has become an extremely popular wedding song.

One of the best things you could possibly do when selecting your wedding music is to ask friends to list some of their favorite songs. If you have friends who have different preferences, you will be able to compose this huge list of songs that are sung by so many different musicians. You will end up with such a great variety of music to listen to at your wedding reception.

The most important thing about your reception is having a good time. And, if you want to be able to celebrate excitedly over your nuptials, you are going to want to have the best music played. Consider following some of the trends, but also make sure to choose plenty of songs that you would love to listen to throughout the entire day.

Joni Mitchell, an inspiring composer|Songful: Artist Insights

Songful. Artist Insights on Help me by Joni Mitchell

joni micthell

Christina del Mundo  shares her thoughts on this track

“My dad asked me just the other day, “Do you have a favourite song?”. I thought about it for about a second and said, “It would have to be Help Me by Joni Mitchell.”. When he asked why, I said it’s for many reasons. This particular song reminds me of my best friend who was the one who introduced it to me and taught me how to play it on guitar. He passed away a little while ago so this song is very special because of that. Help Me brings back memories of past loves who have come and gone. Also, it reminds me of my musical life back in Manila and also as an acoustic duo here in Melbourne.

I always have mixed emotions whenever I hear or cover this song. I think it creates a happy but melancholic mood, she’s excited but anxious at the same time. Joni Mitchell’s music is definitely for the hopeless romantic and those who know what it’s like to love something that is not good for you at the end of the day. Lastly, it’s for people who can simply appreciate a beautiful melody.!
