Hello. My name is Eric Zimmermann. I am a DJ / Master of Ceremonies, Pianist and Band Leader. I love to perform. It is not that performers want the applause or accolade, but rather there is a high level of communication and an exhilaration in a performance. From there on up, there is a creative aesthetic that is not easily put into words. Performers seek this. They have to do it. It is who they are. It is a lot of fun :-)
December 22nd Wedding: Elegant Music Jazz Quintet with DJ @ Pasadena Westin & Master of Ceremonies Sherrien Shui.
This was a morning wedding with the wedding reception starting at 12:00 PM. I performed with my Jazz Quintet: Keyboard, String Bass and Drums along with featured soloists: Vocalist Karla Kelly and Saxplayer Robert Kyle.
DJ and Live Jazz provided the perfect combination of music for this wedding reception.
Sherrien is a wedding coordinator a wedding officiant and event planner and is also quite a performer; with a microphone in hand, she is very comfortable in front of an audience.
As both DJ and Band Leader I followed Sherrien’s carefully planned itinerary and played DJ music for the grand entrances and during special audience participation games that Sherrien conducted. I must say she knows how to work an audience. Several guests sang with the band; even Sherrien joined in. Between announcements and during lunch my Jazz Trio backed up the featured soloists. Everybody had a great time.
MC at a Wedding
I am a very good Master of Ceremonies and know a when I see a fellow MC and performer who is also very good. To ensure the success of their event a wedding coordinator has many things they are responsible for. In addition to all of that Sherrien is an Artist. Seeing her in action was inspiring to me.
What kind of weddings does she do? Check out the pictures on her website Twogether Events.
Sincerely, Eric Zimmermann
