The Way Band at Owasco Country Club wedding

Owasco Country Club Wedding with The Way Band

My band The Way and I recently provided live music at a wedding at Owasco Country Club in Auburn, NY and it was such a blast!  Nestled on the picturesque shores of Owasco Lake, the Owasco Country Club provided the perfect backdrop for a wedding that will long be remembered—not just for its scenic beauty but for the musical journey that complemented every part of the celebration.

A Trio of Musical Experiences

The wedding unfolded in three distinct musical acts, each designed to enhance the atmosphere of the day’s different phases. The festivities began with the cocktail hour, where I had the honor of performing solo. With my guitar and vocals, I played a selection of songs instrumental trio at weddinglike “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” by The Police and “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson. These tracks set a relaxed yet vibrant tone, creating an ambiance of warmth and anticipation for the evening ahead.

As guests transitioned to the main room for dinner, the trio took center stage. We delved into a set of rock and pop instrumental numbers, including classics like “And I Love Her” by The Beatles and “Don’t Know Why” by Norah Jones. The choice of music was deliberate, aiming to enrich the dining experience with a backdrop of melodious tunes that were both familiar and soothing, allowing for conversation and enjoyment of the meal.  Here is a video of the instrumental portion of the evening.

The crescendo of the evening was the dance portion of the night. This was when the energy levels soared, and the true spirit of celebration came alive. With the wireless mic in hand and passed among the guests, everyone sang along to favorites, embodying the joy and unity that music can foster. The highlight of the dance floor was undoubtedly when we played two special requests: “Summer Nights” from Grease and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meatloaf. These songs not only got everyone dancing but also singing at the top of their lungs, reveling in the shared nostalgia and excitement.  Here is a video montage of the dance portion of the wedding.

An Encore to Remember at Owasco Country Club

The couple and their guests were having such a fantastic time that they requested the band to play for an additional hour—a request we were more than happy to oblige. It was a testament to the connection and energy shared between us as performers and the audience, a magical synergy that only music can create.

Playing at the Owasco Country Club wedding was a reminder of music’s timeless appeal and its ability to bring people together in celebration. From the intimate solo performance during the cocktail hour to the engaging trio performances and the explosive dance party, the day was a beautiful blend of melodies, memories, and moments that will be cherished forever.

Weddings like these are why we love what we do, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the happiness of the couple and their guests. Here’s to many more nights of music, dance, and joy at the Owasco Country Club and beyond.
