Many of you have probably participated in some sort of horah, many of you may not have. Well, when I say we had the horah to end all horahs, I would not be exaggerating! I am giving you a quickie sound bite of many of the tunes that our band played for our over-45-minute dance session! I think you will enjoy this post more if you have it playing in the background—be prepared, it’s not your usual horah music! I don’t know if I can really show you the energy, the enthusiasm, the FUN, the awesomeness that was the first part of the dancing, but I will try!
I should say here, I don’t think I have said enough about our band. I found Nafshenu online, and I quickly became their biggest fan from the demo CD they sent me! They kept the party moving from start to finish, totally read our crowd, played every song just as I had imagined it, and were so amazing from cocktail hour through to the end. People were asking if they would stay and play longer! If you are looking for a band that can play a wide variety of both Jewish and secular music, and play it well, I will totally, totally recommend Nafshenu! I will be highlighting their Jewish music in my posts, but believe me, they played everything from “The Final Countdown” to “Living on a Prayer” to “Shout!” with ease!I wish I could put all of their music in, I loved it so much (I even have their CD on as I write!).
This post is picture heavy—plenty to keep you busy while the song plays!
Hermit Crab wedding tip #20:
We knew that “Jewish dancing” was going to be new for most of our guests, but it was something that we really wanted. I am SO happy that we did—we had people on their feet for 45 minutes and some of our non-Jewish friends had the most fun! You have a tradition you want to include, but you think it may be unfamiliar to many (or even most!) of your guests? Go for it!
