It was a rainy, stormy farm wedding and plans changed last minute. Jean Charles showed up, and set himself up to play music in the corner of the huge tent to entertain guests while everyone set up inside the tent. He stuck around the perfect amount of time. He also knew exactly the music we wanted. Excellent!
