This is an example of a typical wedding reception timeline. Of course, your wedding could be quite different. One reason this works is because it coordinates the events with the food service. Toasts, for instance, never take place while the servers are putting down a course or clearing the tables, so there are no distractions. Music is used to create the proper atmosphere at each point during the evening, building the mood to prepare the guests for dancing. I hope this gives you some ideas about your own wedding and how music plays a crucial role in a successful reception. Continue reading Standard Wedding Timeline
The crowd always loves this, so we love to play it!
I’ve played guitar since I was ten years old. By the time I was eleven, it had virtually taken over my life. It was all I really cared about. I formed my first band in fourth grade. I have always played weddings. I did my first performance at a wedding at age thirteen, and I actually got paid!
When I went to college, I tried to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a doctor. During my two years of pre-med at University of Michigan, though I was getting great grades in school, all I was really doing was playing guitar! I decided to be what I already was – a musician.

Thanks to our recent clients for these fantastic reviews on Google!
“Wow” is all we can say about Peter Hennes Orchestra!!!! We had three things we really wanted for our wedding: good food, good drinks, and an amazing band – we hit the jackpot, and they did not disappoint!! Peter Hennes was recommended to me by a friend of a friend who used them at their own wedding, and had this to say: “We were on our feet the whole night…no one sat down, and the dance floor was always packed!” I knew then that this was the band for us. After receiving Peter’s quote, and comparing it to another quote (only for practicality’s sake) Peter’s pricing was more than fair, and blew my mind when I was looking at what the other band wanted to charge us. Peter was always available to answer questions with lightning fast response times, and asked US extensive questions on music preferences, etc. until he felt like he had the perfect play list. The band itself was absolutely, hands down, UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE, and kept the party going all night long!! Continue reading More Google Reviews!
