Barbara and I went to Las Vegas to secure a musical act for our wedding. The Flight of the Conchords bill themselves as New Zealand's fourth most popular novelty band, but they are number one in our hearts.
After wait x amount of time after the show, Jemaine was gracious enough to talk to EVERYBODY who was waiting. After I introduced ourselves, I told Jemaine that we have been telling people that they would be playing at our wedding. He laughed and asked, "So then are you looking for more or less people to come to your wedding then?" Barb joked, "Less!" That is what is behind his stern look in the photo.
Of course, if you haven't heard their music or watched their how on HBO, here's a clip that I think was written about Barbara:
In all seriousness, we started looking for DJ's a couple of months ago and contacted one that was recommended by the Nature Preserve. When I first called Mick, he was on a trip to San Francisco. Even though he was on vacation, we talked about a number of things, both wedding and non-wedding related.
We met him a couple of weeks later at a Coffee Bean and we were sold with his real pragmatic approach. Music is real important to us and we want it to be a big part of the wedding, but not the whole thing. We're very comfortable the Mick will give us the proper balance.
