A wedding celebration for my niece Katherine Assef and her sweetheart Christian Estevez, who were married on May 2nd in Montpellier, France.
While we could not all be together on their happy day, we could celebrate through music, with an assist from internet streaming.
The music mix reflected the five ancestral streams coming together in this marriage; Katherine's Irish, German, and Iranian roots, and Christian's Spanish and French heritage.
(Okay, so the German side did end up being heavy on the kraut-rock and you just knew Kraftwerk was going to make an appearance...)
Speaking of couples, we checked in with the Twin Cities' busiest rock and roll couple, Sir Chadwick and Lady Tracy and their burgeoning enterprise, DJ Rock the Monkey.
