Felix and Fingers learned a little about Lebanese culture at this Itoo Banquet Hall wedding. Congratulations to Nicole and Jeffrey! What a great day it was!
Itoo Banquet Hall Wedding
Nicole and Jeffrey’s Itoo Banquet Hall wedding took us just outside the city of Peoria. This was a large group of people with over 300 guests. We found that the Itoo Banquet staff was excellent in handling this large group. Besides that, they were also excellent with the catering. Delicious, absolutely delicious! If you’re from this area and are searching for just the right venue, you should check out these professionals. They really know how to put on an awesome wedding. Click here to access their website.
Have you heard of the Lebanese Dabke? We really enjoyed this wedding song tradition. It is similar to the Jewish Hora, including the chair lift and all. At first, we were concerned that the bride was going to hit her head on the ceiling with how high they carried her but it all worked out. Playing for this Dabke was truly a special moment. Another, maybe not so traditional, moment was when the crowd was dancing Lebanese style to the song Uptown Funk. That is something we hadn’t seen before.
This was a great group of friends and family. They were all so nice and we loved playing for them. We played from the start of cocktails, through dinner, and until the very end of the reception. The dance floor was full all night and everyone was having a blast. So much fun to play for a group like this. To top off the night, the groom and his groomsmen stole the mic and sang the final song, My Own Worst Enemy by Lit. And the next time you’re at one of our performances, don’t forget to ask Chris and Duncan to do the Wobble. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen that!
