Wedding at The Empire Rooftop

Avalon Jazz Band performed at the Empire Rooftop for a wedding rehearsal dinner. There was a lovely crowd and the bride and groom to be were a fun jazz-loving couple. The father of the bride, who performed a song he wrote for the occasion, had seen us perform at Matisse Restaurant and decided we would be perfect for his daughter’s wedding rehearsal. It was a wonderful evening, and the sun began to set while we were playing « C’est si bon », a French song made famous by Yves Montand, and now an international jazz classic. Towards the end of the night, the Avalon boys started pointing frantically at a man with a moustache while Tatiana wondered what the fuss was about. Then she realised the moustached man was none other than Bill Murray, a close friend of the bride’s dad. Bill Murray is now a proud owner of Avalon Jazz Band’s latest CD « Paris Paris ». We are all big fans ☺
