I love facebook and its many connections to my friends now and from the past. I just watched a video of Raw Corn busking in the Pike Place Market. I know Ronn, singer and guitar player extraordinaire, from my early college days when I worked at his record store – for those of you too young to realize this, there used to be stores that sold vinyl and cassette tapes!
It isn’t too often you find a duo that rocks their acoustic set with just a guitar and accordion but Raw Corn is more fun than I can handle on this Sunday morning. I can’t imagine a song these two couldn’t play. One of my favorites is “Blitzkrieg Bop” originally done by the Ramones. I love the remake and its polka-esque vibe. It is a good romp. I also like their version of Elvis Costello’s “Peace Love and Understanding” and found myself thinking that these guys need to blog.
Being in the wedding business I have met some fabulous business owners. I know right away those that I hope to work with at a wedding. I must say that doing a wedding with these guys would be spectacular. We tend to attract fun and vibrant couples and I just have to imagine that Raw Corn would be the perfect duo for one of our upcoming weddings. Not only are they experienced musicians, they are comedians as well. This is not your typical wedding band.
Check them out and let us know what you think! I would love an excuse to work with these two.
I see the Monkee’s hit “I’m a Believer” as a top wedding must have.
