CTO Park Central at the Cescaphe Ballroom 2/21/20
February 21, 2020
CTO Park Central performed at the The Cescaphe Ballroom in Philadelphia, PA for the wedding reception of Mr. and Mrs. Jessica and RJ Pfeiffer.
The Cescaphe ballroom was decorated in black and gold. The stage was elevated above the dance floor and was perfectly place in the middle of the ballroom with all the guests in a U-shape around it which created a nice dinner theatre atmosphere.
They performed a choreographed dance to the rap song by TI “You Can Have Whatever You Like”. The crowd loved it. Immediately afterwards, all joined them on the dance floor to the sounds of Earth, Wind and Fire‘s September.
At their request, the audience enjoyed selections from Frank Sinatra during first course and a special request of Proud Mary by Creedence Clearwater Revival after dinner. This was clearly a family tradition for everyone sat on the floor in two rows and rolled back and forth when the song said “and were rolling on a river” as the bride walked through the center. It was a whole lot of fun!
The father/daughter dance was a duet “Wildflowers” Tom Petty. The mother/son dance was to “My Wish” by Rascall Flatts. The father of the groom was also the best man. He secretly told us about how his son got in trouble one day by shooting a school bus with a paint gun. So he asked that we sing the line “RJ shot the school bus, but he did not shoot the bus driver” to the music of Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff”. Everyone laughed since this was an inside joke they’ve been singing to him for years.
The party continued and the dance floor stayed packed to the very end. CTO Park Central features a fabulous front line of vocalists Gloria Allende, Shaun ChrisJohn and Stephanie Bucholski, Brian Saunders and Bryann Parr.
CTO Park Central was honored to be a part of this wonderful celebration alongside the wonderful vendors and ever fabulous Cescaphe staff.
