Cory & Rachel’s Wedding at Camp Korey

Cory & Rachel enjoy the country, so it was a natural to plan their Wedding at Camp Korey.   Her colors were orange with orange ribbons on chairs, orange uplighting on pillars, orange mason jars with gold fish, orange vases with tulips in them (they to were orange).   With help from their families they pulled off a great wedding day and still stayed within budget.   Enjoy their Photos.

 

Camp Korey is such a great location for a large Wedding Party.   It has so much to offer a couple with 200+ on their guest list.   With a beautiful manicured garden for your ceremony, golf course sized lawns for your cocktail hour and open or covered venues for your reception, it’s all there.    Gina and her staff are easy to with and take care of the details.

Here are the comments from the Mother of the Groom who is the Chef at Camp Korey.  (They were going to do the music themselves but she convinced the brides family to hire a DJ.   In addition, she had to leave 3 hours early do a health condition.)  ” Gary,   A special Thank You for your services, they were SPOT ON.  I will recommend you to anyone I know needing a DJ.  Thank you for taking over,  please send me some business cards to my address. I think they got it how hard it would have been to do ourselves. I wish I could of boogied with the rest but I was so sick that day it was a miracle everything on the food end went well, thank goodness for family and friends.” fondly,  Mim

 

Clarence Clemons – The Great Sax Player is remembered!

Clarence Clemons, a standout Saxophone Player who I always enjoyed listening play.   I most enjoyed “You’re a Friend of Mine”

Outside of his work with the E Street Band, Clemons recorded with many other artists and had a number of musical projects on his own. The best known of these are his 1985 vocal duet with Jackson Browne on the hit single “You’re a Friend of Mine“, and his saxophone work on Aretha Franklin‘s 1985 hit single “Freeway of Love“. He was managed briefly in the 1980s by former Crawdaddy editor Peter Knobler, whose wedding Clemons played with his band, Clarence Clemons & the Red Bank Rockers. During the 1980s Clemons also owned a Red Bank, New Jersey nightclub called Big Man’s West. He toured in the first incarnation of Ringo Starr & The All-Starr Band in 1989, singing “You’re a Friend of Mine” (dueting with Billy Preston) and an updated rap arrangement of “Quarter to Three.” In the mid-1990s, he recorded a Japan-only CD release called Aja and the Big Man “Get It On” with Los Angeles singer/songwriter Aja Kim. In the 2000s, Clemons along with producer Narada Michael Walden, put together a group called The Temple of Soul, releasing a single called ‘Anna’. He also recorded with philanthropic teen band Creation. Clemons collaborated with Lady Gaga on the songs “Hair” and “The Edge of Glory” from her album Born This Way, providing a saxophone track and solo.[25] Clarence Clemons occasionally sat in with the Grateful Dead and as recently as April 2011 sat in on several tunes with the Grateful Dead “spinoff” band Further during a concert in Boca Raton Florida.
