2009 June 27
Our second Zakordonski wedding was just as much fun as the first!
Two years ago, we were invited to be the feature band at Taras' wedding, and on June 27th, the youngest brother, Damein, celebrated a huge wedding, with 450 guests, a fabulous buffet, and non-stop dancing with the Trocadero, and a group of friends that performed very fast polka and Ukranian tunes throughout the evening!
A memorable night, for sure -- watching all of the families showing off their Ukranian dance heritage, the guests of this wedding were treated to a dazzling display of dancing, courtesy of several Cheremosh, and Shumka dance veterans -- doing all the flashy moves in tuxedos and long evening gowns!
It was also special for the members of the Troc, as they said their thanks and best wishes to JF Picard, a long-time player with the band, who is moving back East. JF came to town about ten years ago with the Royal Canadian Artilery Band, and the city's jazz scene immediately accepted him as one of our own, and one of the strongest saxophonists in the country - also an all-around nice guy! JF was part of many bands, and was also a faculty member with MacEwan. Good luck, JF!
Also, a young up-and-coming trumpeter, Matt Michielin, subbed in with our band for the first time, and shared the lead and solo trumpet duties with George Carmichael -- Matt graduated from MacEwan a couple of years ago, and he's going East this year (Nova Scotia's F.X University), and he'll undoubtedly return in a couple of years as a trumpet force to be reckoned with! Thanks for subbing in, Matt!
