Rock On!

Okay, so we were all settled on saving Big Bucks by creating our own iPod playlist for the reception. No troubles, right? I mean, Ms. C has a massive collection of CDs, including pretty much all the Chicago and Earth, Wind, and Fire and Motown and Michael Jackson and...well, you get the idea. We're on it. (Okay, it's not all 70s...there's a bit of 50s & 60s, as well as more recent stuff. Anyway.)

Then: we went to a concert in B'ville and see this excellent Chicago tribute band called Chicago Transit, who also performs lots of Motown-style-stuff under the name Powerhouse, and suddenly the fiancee's thinking, "Hey, wouldn't that be amazing?" And I reply, "Um...eight-piece band? Budget? And will they fit in the barn we're thinking of for the reception?"

Her plan, budget-wise: cut the food. Put out some bowls of potato chips. Okay, she's kidding. But something would have to give, and it's not like I planned on spending much on a dress.

But, nothing ventured, nothing gained. So, we tracked down the band (not easy, let me tell you), and the next step will be for Ms. C to call them and find out a) this is so far outside of our budget options we can just forget about it, or II) maybe not.
