There is only one Entertainment and we are all a part of it.

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with another entertainer.

Charles Rex of Chicago. He plays accordion and has for longer than I have been alive… Probably longer than my parents have been alive.

It was amazing to watch him work. He was an absolute pro. One minute he was getting ready to get setup. The next he was in his chair ready to work. It was like a magic act.

The real magic was the music. He covered the bases, playing to the room, Anniversary Dance, the Anniversary waltz, a polka. I was amazed.

We were playing at the Rathskellar. The party was a 50th anniversary. The wedding 50 years ago was at the Rathskellar.

I wonder aloud at how many locations will be here in 50 years. Will the place you select be in existence in 50 years? I heard a great interview from a bride and groom who had selected Tavern On The Green in NYC for that very reason.

I always recommend that grooms buy a copy of the first dance for similar reasons. How many times will music formats change in 20 or 50 years?

One thought on “There is only one Entertainment and we are all a part of it.

  1. Glad to hear that Charles Rex is still going strong. He used to play small bars in Chicago pretty often when I first moved here in 1998. Have not seen his name in about 5 years now. What a great entertainer and person!!
