Omni William Penn Wedding
Elegance at the Urban Room
Some weddings just make you say “yesssssss”! The Urban Room at the Omni William Penn defines Art Deco elegance with black Carrera glass walls and a ceiling mural by artist Joseph Urban. This elegant setting was the backdrop for the wedding of Sara and Nick, a young vibrant couple starting their lives together with a wedding to remember.
The Omni William Penn provided exceptional catering and the photography by Chris Lane was top notch.
Sara and Nicks desire to have the best entertainment possible made the choice easy: The Elite Show Band 9 piece configuration kept the dance floor rocking all night with special request songs from Queen, Paul Simon and Rascal Flats, as well as the Motown, Disco, R&B and current artists like Bruno Mars the band is famous for. The traditional Hava Nagila was also a huge hit with the whole family. Not just any band can pull together such a wide variety of music but Elite Show Band makes this seamless.
With family members having come from all corners of the United States it was truly a melting pot where everyone was able to feel welcome and celebrate the wedding of this fantastic couple, another great Omni William Penn Wedding!

We highly recommend The Elite Show Band. Nina and Peter were totally amazing to work with. They were positively full of smiles and fun energy. Many of the bands we watched videos for were like watching stiff robots playing songs. The band was a concert like experience. Can you say down to earth to deal with? Peter and Nina were like booking a band at a neighborhood store that you frequented for the last 25 years. We can’t say enough great things about them! The videos online of the band are great, but truly don’t do the band justice. They were jaw dropping live. We only had a couple of songs that we definitely wanted to have played and they were able to play all of them perfectly. In fact, they played all of our first dance songs live too and we thought we picked songs people never used! We didn’t have any choreographed dances, so them playing all the songs was perfect for us. They were able to shorten some of the longer songs for first dances too without anyone noticing the changes. We really didn’t want our special dances taking up a lot of time and Nina and Peter helped us get the party started in a timely fashion. We have fielded so many compliments for our wedding, the majority of those towards the band. Besides the few songs we wanted played, we let the band run with their own song choices. The dance floor was packed not only for the initial hours after dinner service, but right up until we had to shut it down. Even our 92 year old grandmother was dancing the night away until 12:30 in the morning! I know I’m a bit biased, but in my 40 years I have never had so much fun at a wedding. I even got compliments on the band from hotel staff. One saying that he has been doing weddings in the hotel for 12 years and this was easily top 3 ever for the amount of fun everyone was having and that he thought the band was phenomenal. I’m a fun guy, but I’ll have to defer most of the credit for the amount of fun people had at our wedding to The Elite Show Band.
