On August 26, 2012 I proposed and got married but there is a good story behind the event and sort of music related.

So here's how it went down...

In concert with my wife's sister and best friend we surprised her with a wedding. She knew I was going to propose (we live together) but didn't know how.

First myself and the family made a music video to Silly Love Songs (I'm kind of a Macca/Wings freak) with the family dancing Gangnam Style. Step-son in front, neice, wife's twin sister, bro-inlaw, nephew.

The video started on the big screen at the restaurants bar, at the same time the family starts dancing on the video the entire bar gets up and does the Gangnam horse dance ala Flash Mob.

Then we head to the 3rd floor where she thinks our table is waiting. In the elevator I tell her we should just get married right then. The doors open her son (6'4 260lbs) is standing there along with our closest friends and family. Once of my best friends and former drummer performed the ceremony (minister at Dallas Presbyterian), bass player was best man. It was awesome.

Here's the video we made - http://youtu.be/qmCBEwxUf1U

Here is her reaction and the flash mob - http://youtu.be/HBZbs7aPPsg
