Ross – Ceremony/Jazz Musician & Band Leader
“Ross is a master musician, and I’m thrilled to have him as a key member of the Corrine Weddings team,” says Corrine Crocker-Luby. Ross has had a trumpet close by his side since the fourth grade. In the years since, the Windsor native has received a B.A. from the Manhattan School of Music and began a career as a middle school band director and music teacher in order to mold the musicians of tomorrow. These days, however, Ross’s mission is to orchestrate beautiful weddings. “No two weddings are ever the same,” says Ross. “I enjoy being a part of each couple’s special day and working with them to create the perfect mood they’re looking for.” “Music sets the tone for a wedding,” adds Ross, and says he is “ready and willing to go the extra mile” to help each couple choose the notes that will define their day of days. Soloists, duos, trios or a full-bodied classical quartet (trumpet, flute, cello and violin) can all be arranged. If you are looking for something unique and non-traditional, you may want to consider a trio of trumpet, guitar and bass. With this trio, not only will you get the elegant music for your ceremony as you walk down the aisle, but this ensemble can quickly and easily change tempos and jump into some swinging, toe-tapping standards of Cole Porter and George Gershwin for your cocktail hour or dinner. This is a wonderful way to get your celebration started! When you’re ready to jazz things up at your reception there’s the jazz band Ross leads with a repertoire that includes everyone from Duke Ellington to Benny Goodman, Billy Joel to Bob Marley.
