Where Did You Get That?

Dancing in the streets.

While they were dating, Sally Randall and Brian Bossman had attended weddings on Martha’s Vineyard where they celebrated their newly married friends in a jovial and unique way: by participating in a parade down Edgartown’s Main Street with musicians.

“We absolutely loved walking down Main Street in those previous weddings and knew we wanted something special on our wedding day as well,” said Sally.

Right after getting engaged, Sally said she wasted no time in booking The Sultans, a ten-piece band that would bring a lively vibe to their June 24, 2023, nuptials in Edgartown.

On their wedding day, the couple said “I do” at the Federated Church, followed by a few photo opportunities outside. Then it was time to march in their very own parade. Two brass band members of the Sultans – one playing the saxophone and one playing the trumpet – led the newlyweds and their guests from the church to the reception site at the Edgartown Yacht Club.

“They played a brass version of ‘Sexual Healing’ I had requested, and ‘When the Saints Go Marching In,’” said Sally.

The parade down Main Street lasted about fifteen minutes, Sally estimated, but it’s a memory she’s been playing over and over again in her head. “It felt surreal! There were tons of people lined up around Main Street watching us all walk down and taking pictures. It was really fun cheering and waving to everyone,” she remembered.

The ten-piece band package, which included the reception and two musicians to lead the parade, cost $14,400.
