Knock it off the bucket list - The Brothers Vinyl have played a wedding. Not only did we play a wedding but we did it as ourselves, not some cover band hiding behind our moniker. It was a lot of fun and a really special moment to be included in someone's special day.
The really humbling part was the groom, Sumner Erickson, who apparently had Brothers Vinyl in the works for over a year. He has known our guitar player, James for quite a while and this is the band that he wanted for his wedding. We weren't had 5th choice and sprung upon just to fit into his budget - he wanted us to play. It was pretty humbling to hear such wild reviews and to then watch the groom himself convince the audience to come and buy our EP.
After the show we hung out with the wedding party and the bride and groom and became family - it was really special and I'm still in awe of their kindness and generosity. We really wish you guys all the best of fortune and a happy life together and thank you again for bringing us in to share in all the happiness. You're part of our family too now.
