Party Machine was honored over the summer to play the wedding reception of Angela Akins and professional golfer and 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia
The wedding and reception were held on the private ranch property of the Akins family in Burnet, Texas. This lovely area of the Lone Star State is known as the Hill Country for its elevation changes, spacious views, wineries, and gorgeous sunsets.
After a beautiful outdoor ceremony on property, the guests took their seats in a large tent. After the wedding party was introduced, Sergio (clad in his Masters Green Jacket) and his new wife Angela had their first dance as a married couple. During he dinner set, the guests were entertained by the incomparable Kenny G. Songs included some of Kenny's greatest hits throughout his career. Our drummer Chris McBride even sat in with Kenny for a song.
Party Machine took over for the dance sets and raised the party up to a respectable level with Angela, Sergio, family and friends all tearing it up on the dance floor!
At the end of the night, Sergio and Angela gathered Party Machine around them for a personal thank you. The groom, clad in his green Masters Champion jacket told the band, "We are really happy we went with you instead of Maroon 5!"
The after party was held on site complete with fireworks and Emerald City Band's DJ Carlo jamming strong songs poolside until the wee hours of the morning.
Notable celebrity guests included athletes Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Rory McIlroy, Andy Roddick, Kenny G, and Lee Westwood.
