official opinions: Words of Love for the original hipster

Carly, Stitely‘s Event-Planning Coordinator, choose this upbeat tune by Buddy Holly for today’s Music Monday. Always a classic, Buddy Holly’s pop-y songs have recently been covered and collected into a new anthology called “Rave on Buddy Holly.”  Contributors include some diverse artists such as Florence and the Machine, My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Cee Lo Green, Paul McCartney, She & Him, Lou Reed, Kid Rock, Patti Smith and more.

A release states that “Rave On‘s striking collection of musicians share Holly’s insurgent rebel spirit and outsider point of view. The artists cross generations and styles, collectively and defiantly embracing Holly’s distinctive rough and tumble inventiveness.” Instead of being a straight cover album, artists were “free to explore radically new interpretations.” Read more at Paste Magazine and enjoy the original hipster himself:


Official Opinions: Stitely’s super summer weddings

Stitely Entertainment has the unique pleasure of sharing in one of the most magical and memorable events in a young couple’s lives: marriage.   Since the company was founded in 1995, Stitely bands have provided the music for literally hundreds of events.  And it just keeps getting better!  We love to share in these wonderful events in which couples show off their individuality, and we try to play an active role in that expression.  Here are just a few of our recent weddings where we got to join the fun:

Colleen Grogan & Jarod Garbe

May 21st, 2011

This first-day-of-summer wedding reception was held at the La Grange Country Club (La Grange, IL).  The Stitely Orchestra played a special request for the couple: “Buddy Holly” by Weezer!  What a fun night!

This romantic, mid-summer wedding was followed by a reception that was held at the Womens Athletic Club Chicago.  Top Chicago Wedding band, The Stitely Orchestra, performed throughout the evening and ensured that guests stayed out on that dance floor!
