Tonight I played bass in a band for a wedding in Fairview for actor Marc Blucas and his new wife Ryan. A special guest at the wedding was Pat Monahan, a former Erie resident and leader of the band Train. He asked to sing with our band, and so we ended up the backup band of Pat as he performed Drops of Jupiter and Calling All Angels. He also performed a solo song to the wedding couple entitled “Marry Me”.
I helped the band leader work up the arrangements and we did a quick practice before the ceremony began. I am a huge fan of Pat and Train, so this was quite an honor for me.
Pat was nice enough to pose for a photo with me before we broke down the stage.
