Emerald City was recently featured in People Magazine

We have been so blessed to perform at many weddings and events, and we recently performed at the celebrity wedding of Housewives of Dallas LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin.  A People Magazine article had a mention of Emerald City Band and the performance.  Here is the quote from the article.

They also composed a first dance song just for Locken and Emberlin. “They know us so well and every lyric of that song reflected back on our relationship,” Locken says. “That’s the whole thing — with every single person who contributed to our wedding, it was like they stood up and said, ‘This is love, and I’m going to put my version of love to show just how much these two people love each other.’ It was all so special.”

The band’s trumpeter and saxophonist weaved among the audience during the set, and during each of their solos, they drew cheers and fist pumps from both tiers of the venue.
