Mr. & Mrs. Michael & Kristen McMahon!!

Michael & Kristen were married on site at the beautiful Normandy Farms on August 27Th 2010. The ceremony music provided by Emanuel & Anthony. Friends and family gathered on this beautiful day, most special of all were sons Gavin & Dylan as ring bearers. I cannot tell you how much I loved Kristen's gown, it was one of the prettiest vintage gowns I have ever seen, not to mention how beautiful she looked. Now, I cannot go on without giving Michael props, because he is so handsome and they both were the warmest couple. Under the breathtaking chandeliers in the ballroom, "Hold On" was this couples first dance sung by Del's Groove's Philip Joseph. Kristen danced with her dad to Tim McGraws "My Little Girl" which Philip also sang beautifully. Michael and his mom chose "Moon River" as sung by our guitar/vocalist Raymond. I absolutely loved their choices!

From the moment we started, the dance floor was rockin! These two families and their friends were so much fun. Many from our own area, we saw many familiar faces. Del's Groove would like to thank the Harrington-McMahon family for their warm hospitality and choosing us on their special day. Off to Belize this wonderful couple went on their honeymoon and thanks for posting all your pictures on FaceBook, I sure hope I get there someday, but, it was awesome to see it through your eyes. Many Blessings to you, Kristen & Michael & your families, once again, thank you for having Del's Groove!
Please take a moment to visit Many beautiful photographs were provided by Gary Nevitt Jr, who Del's Groove had fun working with! Thank you Gary!!
We also would like to give a shout out to Normandy Farms & especially Omar for taking such great care of us!

Hugs to all ~ Susan

Celebrate, Celebrate, Dance at the Commodore's Ball!!

And that my friends is exactly what they did! Del's Groove once again were invited back to perform at the Avalon's Yacht Club's Commodore Ball. What I love most about this gig is seeing the same folks year after year. If it's not at the Ball, then New Year's Eve. It' so great to see everyone all dressed up outside of playing a wedding. My favorite part is when the high heels get kicked off for some serious dancing.
Commodore Paul Smith & his lovely wife Kerry were awesome hosts of the evening. After the awards & recognitions were given out, Del's Groove got the party started. We surprised Paul by taking his suggestion to start the evening out with an old tune by Three Dog Night - Celebrate, and with a little word play, we opened the dance floor with Raymond on lead vocals and the dancing started and never ended till the gig was over. This year some of Paul & Kerry's nephew's and their beautiful daughter joined in for the fun. I have to say though, to walk in the main entrance to find the poster with the faces of the yacht clubs members superimposed, well was yet another highlight! In the Twitter world, I managed to get a few shots of Paul tweeted as well.
Once again, thank you to all the members & staff of the Avalon Yacht Club for their warm hospitality, can't wait to see you all New Year's Eve!!
I might also mention, the Avalon Yacht Club is a beautiful venue for your wedding or special event, you can check them out at and don't forget to check out Del's Groove at
