Magazine’s & Newspapers

People Magazine

We recently had a uniquely exciting opportunity to perform at the wedding of “Housewives of Dallas” LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin. An excerpt from People magazine quotes:

“The ten-piece Dallas-based Emerald City Band provided non-stop energy, rocking the house and keeping the dance floor packed all night.
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.”
