Omega is a 6'5" African American fella who is now happily married to a wonderful 6 foot plus white woman. They are going to have some giant children whom I hope play for the Chicago Bears, be they male or female. Now, Omega let me know beforehand that he wasn't too happy about his bride-to-be booking her cousin's band for the occasion, but there was just no getting her to bend on that issue.
The band was not very talented, or perhaps they just haven't rehearsed in a while, and they had a random trumpet player who would sneak horn playing into songs whether the song called for it or not. They also jammed out self indulgent solos through out the songs, which wasn't really necessary and made the already poorly chosen songs longer and even harder to dance to. What was perhaps the most uncomfortable part was that they were very, very white. They only song I can remember them playing was "Hey Ya" by Outkast, a song that was around ten years old at the time, but it seems as if they played it in an attempt to get the Black people out on the dance floor. But to be honest, the white folks weren't dancing to anything either.
|This is not a picture of the actual band, and if this is your band, I'm sorry to use you to be the visual for the worst band ever, but you kind of deserve it.|
I was chatting with Omega Supreme over a Budweister, and for some reason I was singing "to the window . . . to the wall!" And he said to me, in this funny intentionally whining voice that he does sometimes, "Dr. Ken, youknow I want to hear the "to the window to the wall song." But it was not to be. The worst wedding band of all time continued their rain of terror well into the evening, but with enough shots of Jameson and enough stories about old times, we still had a great time.
How about you, Seven Readers? You got a best or worst element of a wedding ceremony or reception?
