JOHN MAYER says, "TIM FAGAN is a WINNER" - Esquire Magazine, January 2006. With Fagan's effortless, crisp guitar and gravelly croon, the comparison to Mayer comes easily. One of LA's most in-demand performers, Tim has been playing weddings and corporate events professionally for over 12 years. Whether you need gentle classical guitar for your ceremony, charming ballads as your guests mingle, or a FULL BAND, blasting rousing sing-alongs and dance grooves for the peak of the party, Tim's glowing musical talents and personality will blow you away. If in addition to hiring Tim as a soloist you'd like to be entertained by him and his "All-Star Band", you're in for a treat - some of Los Angeles' finest studio musicians and touring artists join Tim at each event bringing a fresh, professional sound to every note they play. If you're weighing the choice between a DJ or live band - don't sweat - with us you get both! When the band is on break, the same heavy-duty sound system can be used to play an iPod with music to fill the dance floor...and to make announcements and toasts. We make it simple - call on us for ALL the entertainment at your event, top to bottom.
Here's just one example of a great wedding plan with Tim Fagan:
5pm - THE CEREMONY: Tim plays solo acoustic guitar as guests find their seats, selecting mellow love songs and classical intrumentals by the Beatles, Bach, and more...and then: "What a Wonderful World" as the Wedding party walks down the aisle "Here Comes The Bride" for the lady of honor "How Sweet It Is" as the bride and groom kiss, the fans go wild, and everyone heads to the open bar!
6pm - THE COCKTAIL HOUR: While the bride & groom team run off to take glorious sunset pictures where everyone's hair is perfect and no one was blinking, Tim entertains the guests. Joined by an amazing percussionist (or pianist, or vocalist, or bass player, you name it), he plays and sings a happy mix of old and new classics. Everything FROM: "Into The Mystic" by Van Morrison "Dock Of The Bay" by Otis Redding "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton TO: "What I Got" by Sublime "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer ...Tim announces that dinner is soon to be served, and everyone follows their name tag to the right table. Members of the kids table commence building a smiley face out of butter.
7:30 - THE RECEPTION:
DINNER TIME - The All-Star band composed of Tim and expert players on - bass, drums, guitar, keyboards and vocals - take their positions and play a relaxed set of dinner music, choosing form over 250 songs in all styles. Guests happily stroll by the stage to make requests from the book of songs. Then, Tim introduces the first nervous-but-ready toastmaker, handing the best man a wireless microphone. Tim and the band take a break, hooking up an iPod with all the bride and groom's hand-picked songs. Later the band returns, playing: "Let's Stay Together" - for the First Dance, when those dance lessons get to SHINE! "The Way You Look Tonight" - for the Father-Daughter dance. Aunt Shirley starts crying all over again.
PARTY TIME - Then the party really gets rolling. The dance floor fills up and Tim and the band kick out the jams: FROM: "Mustang Sally" Wilson Pickett "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen "I Want You To Want Me" by Cheap Trick TO: "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley "Your Body Is A Wonderland" by John Mayer "Mr. Brightside" The Killers "No Scrubs" TLC After a colorful set of fun songs, the band takes another break. But the party doesn't stop. Again, the iPod swoops in, this time packed with slamming favorites (again, selected by "DJ Bride & Groom" in advance). ABBA, Notorious BIG, Daft Punk, whatever you crazy kids want to hear. Along the way Tim announces the cake cutting, bouquet toss, and any other special moments, keeping the crowd happy and entertained. The band then closes the night with another set of live music. The hugs, long goodbyes and stumbling towards the shuttles begins, and the bride and groom magically escape to Costa Rica...and life is good!
Of course, you can totally customize ALL the details. Tim and his band have the experience, talent, equipment, and great attitude to make your event unforgettable. You'll get all the music you need from one reliable source, and it will cost far less than hiring so many seperate vendors! Call Tim today, and he'll answer any questions you have. You can start having fun planning you dream day.
