EVAN AND JARON TAB!! I FIGURED IT OUT!

I'm 90% sure this is it...obviously it may sound right but the guys may play it different...this is the only way to really do it with one guitar instead of their two. I'm not good with note names but the notes are:
verse:
A# - | 1 1 3 3 1 1|
F - | 1 3 3 2 1 1|
changes with each line of the verse (listen for it)
and when it goes to "the time when you'll be back....you're comin back"
play:
B# - |3 3 5 5 3 3|
chorus:
F - |1 3 3 2 1 1|
A# - |1 1 3 3 1 1|
when it gets to "I could brave a hurricane and..."
play :
| 5 5 7 5 5 5|
"still be standin tall when all the dust has settled"
A#
"down" - |3 3 5 5 3 3| (strum once, let ring) "I can't take the distance" (go back to the verse chords)
That's it.
the only way you can add that little d-string 3rd fret to 5th fret thing while strumming is to capo the 1st fret, that way you can use the finger you'd normally use to bar an F and reach that 5th fret. (you know the little riff that plays behind the strumming in the beginning on the d string: 3 5 5 3 3 5 5 3, just listen for it)
Obviously you'll have to listen to it to get this just right....it's hard to hear but when you're doing the verse just move those two fingers up from the A# to the F and you can keep playing that 3 5 5 3 riff...it's not hard to get, promise. If you need help with it, just email me and I'll help ya, email me also if you think I made a mistake, cause if I did I'd like to know about it. Hope this helps!

WOrst wedding Band EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

The WORST wedding Band Ever! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys:
This is a personal HORROR story I'm sharing so that you won't have to endure the same on your wedding day!

My fiancé (now husband) and I had everything organized and planned for a lovely September wedding. We took months planning the day as every couple does and took pains to send very specific instructions to all of our carefully selected vendors (band, photographer, etc). We especially had specific instructions for the band since we had specific needs on volume control. The restaurant we were holding the wedding reception was a small historic Inn and would be seating other diners that night since our wedding party would fit in the main dining room.

We knew to expect some minor things to go wrong, but what we didn’t expect was the band to blatantly disregard all of our previously arranged instructions!
Brian Moran, the band leader seemed amiable when he approached us before dinner, and said that everything would be fine and that he would be able to control the volume without problem and that he would do whatever we needed.
Everything changed as soon as our guests were seated for dinner.

According to our agreed instructions, he was supposed to introduce us for our first dance as husband and wife. The band was also supposed to have learned ONE song for our special dance. I sent them a tape of the song a month and a half before the wedding date (15 days before they said they needed it). Instead of the proper introductions as I had plainly written out for him, he mumbled his own version, then just played the tape of the song I had mailed him weeks earlier. My fiancé and I were surprised and disappointed, but it was our wedding day and I felt it was a small thing to get angry over. But it didn’t end there. The entire night, the band played songs that were NOT on our requested play list! Out of the 25 songs we had specifically requested, we heard about 4 or 5 from the list!

Then, during several songs, their volume got too loud. When my fiancé, who was concerned about the other diners in the restaurant, asked Brian to lower the volume, Brian blatantly ignored him and kept playing. At one point, after several attempts by my fiancé, his best man and the restaurant manager to get Brian to control the volume, Brian intentionally shut the volume off completely in mid-song. Imagine a dance floor full of happily dancing wedding guests who were suddenly stopped in mid-song!

He even forgot (or intentionally ignored) the mother and son dance. We had planned for my fiancé and his mother to be introduced so that they could dance to "What a Wonderful World". Instead, the band just started playing the song at the wrong time. I frantically searched for my fiancé's mother who happened to be out of the room. My fiancé and his mother made it to the dance floor halfway through the song.

But the unhappy story continues. After the cake cutting ceremony, we wanted the band to play a second song for us to dance to as a couple. I also wanted them to introduce us up to the floor so that we could have the microphone and say a few words of thanks to our guests for attending. They did nothing. They eventually played our 2nd dance song at the end of the evening as half our guests had left. Then they played it again, about 2 songs later. Today when I think about that time, I remember the out of town guests who I was unable to thank because of the band's incompetence.

But that wasn’t enough for them. We had talked to the band about how often and how long their breaks would be. They had said about 10 minutes every hour and a bit longer for their dinner break. In actuality, they were very seldom playing music during the night. I usually found them at the bar or outside. There were times when everyone was done eating, but there was no music! They must have played around 16 songs, not including the tape they played of our dance song and the one song they played twice.

I was shocked and angry. I couldn’t understand why the band was directly going against what we had contracted for them to do and what they had promised to carry out. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me and on my wedding day! It was all I could do to try and not get upset in front of my new husband, my family and friends. But the damage was done. They had ruined my evening and the night was over. All I wanted to know was WHY? Why did they intentionally disregard everything we had wanted and discussed with them?

After the wedding, the bandleader, Brian had lame excuses for everything, twisting all the previous discussions, putting blame on others who had already left for home. He blamed the restaurant manager. He blamed us for being contradictory and vague in our instructions. Finally, he even had the audacity to blame his arrogance and "whatever" attitude on the tragic events of September 11th.

Then, he said his duty as a bandleader had nothing to do with our requests but rather to keep the dance floor filled. He said our songs were inappropriate and that he only used them as reference (even though he initially agreed to follow our song list). He knew what songs would please the crowd and those were the songs he played, even if I had specifically asked NOT to play those songs.
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. He had some twisted lame explanation for all of his inappropriate actions that night and he remained stubbornly unapologetic. I couldn’t believe it. I was dumbfounded. All I had wanted was some explanation and an apology. But I got neither!

Don’t get me wrong. The band sounds good -- that is, when they are actually playing music. That was why we wanted them for our wedding. But don’t expect them to play what you want, when you want or even adhere to what was contracted. So if you're looking for a wedding band who will take your requests seriously, a band who will listen to your instructions and not blatantly refuse to do as you've PAID them to do -- then you DO NOT want this band!

I am thankful that the wedding ceremony (which the band was uninvolved in) was beautiful and memorable, but I would rather forget about the horrible reception that followed. The only reason I share this online is to help others avoid this terrible band and their arrogant, conceited bandleader, Brian Moran. If you need any further verification, you can contact me directly at mhm91601@yahoo.com. I can even give you the name and number for the restaurant's general manager who confessed to us after the wedding that he had NEVER seen a band completely disregard the bride and groom's wishes during the reception.

So, to all those planning a wedding, I hope your special day is as lovely as you planned it. But if you want a band that will listen to you and follow through on your instructions as planned -- pick another band!

Bugs Moran and the Trouble Boys played at my wedding in May 1994. They provided great entertainment that everyone enjoyed. We sent them a tape of our obscure wedding song(I've Been Arrested by You from the Better Off Dead soundtrack). They performed it better than the original artist. My sister in law and brother in law also used them for their wedding in December 1995. We all think they are great and can't believe this story.

Re: WOrst wedding Band EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

they arent that good and brian is an a**hole

Re: Best wedding Band EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

Hard to find anything but good recommendations about Bugs Moran anywhere. Sounds like a mean joke...

Re: BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

I hired Bugs Moran to entertain at my wedding last year and was SO glad I did! Everyone there was asking where I found them! Ever genre of music you could think of, played well and with energy. These guys really know their stuff.
I would recommend them highly to anyone who wants a great party band for their wedding!

Re: BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

: I hired Bugs Moran to entertain at my wedding last year and i wish I didnt! They were to loud and when my mother asked them to please lower the music the bass player came after her with a knife! He had completely lost his mind. We called the state police and they had to take him away. Needless to say our wedding day was a complete disaster Not to mention that the saxaphone player took a huge poo in the middle of the dance floor when we were in the middle of our first dance, it was astonishing to see this unfold before us! Unless you're into knives and defication this band should never be hired for any kind of occasion, EVER!

Interesting indeed. My beefy wife to be have been looking for a defication and knife party band for 8 months now! Now if this Moran person was Smart he would ad several small monkies to his little wedding show! Each monkey should be given a spatula and a handfull of choclate covered uppers that the monkies could devour at will! The uppers only enhance the "courage" of the beautiful little ape beasts and cause them to complete thier "wonderous task" in a most "brisk" and "fastidious way"! Imagine setting the monkies loose during the Cocktail hour? I certainly have a vision of this! The monkies could go around swating the shit out of all the guests! Just swating and beating the living daylights out of everyone and everything in thier path! Of course the monkies would be given monkey helmets to wear so they could nt hurt each other, that wouldnt be humane if the monkies hurt themselves! I know this may sound unusual but I was just at a wedding in Clifton New Jersey where this actually took place , and I'll tell you it was a sight to behold! It left me and my beefy wife to be with some of the most fondest and teary eyed memories imaginable. Please Mr Moran Never stop doing what ever it is you do do so well at your performences
I hope Mr Moran is available for our wedding, God I could only hope,
Herk and Dora

Best Wedding Band ever

I love the doody band!

Re: Worst wedding Band EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

Not to mention that Bugs Moran is fat, ugly and smells!!!

Re: Worst wedding Band EVER!!! Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys!

You have a large problem, my dear. Bugs and the boys have been doing weddings for over 30 years. They're one of the most professional, disiplined bunch of 'nice guy' musicians I've ever known. You left out a few details and/or exaggerated a few things now, didn't you? Add to this a wee bit of distorted facts and what truly emerges is a picture of a vicious little spoiled wench who 1)picked the wrong restuarant(you need a private room for a wedding; 2) doesn't know that the maitre d' hotel runs the party; 3) foisted unrealistic expectations on the band; and 4) probably should have done a great band a favor and hired a DJ. You suck, to put it politely, lady. To try to ruin a good reputation is a great sin. Stop trying to be so controling. I feel sorry for your husband. Get over it!

The entire night, the band played songs that were NOT on our requested play list! Out of the 25 songs we had specifically requested, we heard about 4 or 5 from the list!

: Then, during several songs, their volume got too loud. When my fiancé, who was concerned about the other diners in the restaurant, asked Brian to lower the volume, Brian blatantly ignored him and kept playing. At one point, after several attempts by my fiancé, his best man and the restaurant manager to get Brian to control the volume, Brian intentionally shut the volume off completely in mid-song. Imagine a dance floor full of happily dancing wedding guests who were suddenly stopped in mid-song!

: He even forgot (or intentionally ignored) the mother and son dance. We had planned for my fiancé and his mother to be introduced so that they could dance to "What a Wonderful World". Instead, the band just started playing the song at the wrong time. I frantically searched for my fiancé's mother who happened to be out of the room. My fiancé and his mother made it to the dance floor halfway through the song.

: But the unhappy story continues. After the cake cutting ceremony, we wanted the band to play a second song for us to dance to as a couple. I also wanted them to introduce us up to the floor so that we could have the microphone and say a few words of thanks to our guests for attending. They did nothing. They eventually played our 2nd dance song at the end of the evening as half our guests had left. Then they played it again, about 2 songs later. Today when I think about that time, I remember the out of town guests who I was unable to thank because of the band's incompetence.

: But that wasn’t enough for them. We had talked to the band about how often and how long their breaks would be. They had said about 10 minutes every hour and a bit longer for their dinner break. In actuality, they were very seldom playing music during the night. I usually found them at the bar or outside. There were times when everyone was done eating, but there was no music! They must have played around 16 songs, not including the tape they played of our dance song and the one song they played twice.

: I was shocked and angry. I couldn’t understand why the band was directly going against what we had contracted for them to do and what they had promised to carry out. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me and on my wedding day! It was all I could do to try and not get upset in front of my new husband, my family and friends. But the damage was done. They had ruined my evening and the night was over. All I wanted to know was WHY? Why did they intentionally disregard everything we had wanted and discussed with them?

: After the wedding, the bandleader, Brian had lame excuses for everything, twisting all the previous discussions, putting blame on others who had already left for home. He blamed the restaurant manager. He blamed us for being contradictory and vague in our instructions. Finally, he even had the audacity to blame his arrogance and "whatever" attitude on the tragic events of September 11th.

: Then, he said his duty as a bandleader had nothing to do with our requests but rather to keep the dance floor filled. He said our songs were inappropriate and that he only used them as reference (even though he initially agreed to follow our song list). He knew what songs would please the crowd and those were the songs he played, even if I had specifically asked NOT to play those songs.
: I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. He had some twisted lame explanation for all of his inappropriate actions that night and he remained stubbornly unapologetic. I couldn’t believe it. I was dumbfounded. All I had wanted was some explanation and an apology. But I got neither!

: Don’t get me wrong. The band sounds good -- that is, when they are actually playing music. That was why we wanted them for our wedding. But don’t expect them to play what you want, when you want or even adhere to what was contracted. So if you're looking for a wedding band who will take your requests seriously, a band who will listen to your instructions and not blatantly refuse to do as you've PAID them to do -- then you DO NOT want this band!

: I am thankful that the wedding ceremony (which the band was uninvolved in) was beautiful and memorable, but I would rather forget about the horrible reception that followed. The only reason I share this online is to help others avoid this terrible band and their arrogant, conceited bandleader, Brian Moran. If you need any further verification, you can contact me directly at mhm91601@yahoo.com. I can even give you the name and number for the restaurant's general manager who confessed to us after the wedding that he had NEVER seen a band completely disregard the bride and groom's wishes during the reception.

: So, to all those planning a wedding, I hope your special day is as lovely as you planned it. But if you want a band that will listen to you and follow through on your instructions as planned -- pick another band!

: DON'T hire the WORST Wedding BAND EVER: Bugs Moran & The Trouble Boys.
:
I am so sorry this happened to you but I had the same band for my wedding after seeing them at another friends wedding and they were fabulous , great and did not disregard any instructions ,mind you we had a big hall and the acoustics were probably better but i would reccomend them to anybody that asks and i had a few people ask at my wedding. I had no problems with brian at all.

Re worst wedding band

I'm reading this and laughing hysterically. I personally know Bugs Moran and the Trouble Boys and know they are fantastic musicians. I first met them at a neighborhood bar/restaurant in Brooklyn and to this day can call them my friends, Brian, Neal and Peter. I would travel anyway to see them. I've known them since the Mid 80s, have seen them play in NYC, LI, Brooklyn. I agree with the comments that this bride should have hired a dj and she could pick and choose any song she wanted. Live music is loud and she had the wrong venue!! If anyone has the chance to see this band, go and enjoy them!!! Luv you guys!!!
