Rene Rancourt at Lakeview Pavillion
Thank you Matt & Kristine for the great review and thank you Rene for always leaving people happy !
“My husband & I got married Friday November 11th, 2016 at Lakeview Pavilion in Foxboro. Being a Norwich Alum, 2-tour Army Veteran & Police Officer, my husband had been suggesting we include the National Anthem somewhere in our Veteran’s Day union. “It’s only appropriate,” he would say, referring to the several Active Duty & Retired Service Members & Veterans. I pretended to brush him off. Well, husband, I heard you loud & clear. I reached out to Murray Hill Talent February 2016 to see if Rene Rancourt was available to surprise my Super Fan fiance. This was a long shot – Rene Rancourt is booked YEARS in advance for Veterans Day appearances, right? Well, I no sooner sent the email & I was contacted by Tom Pendergast – Rene was available! WHAT? Immediately, I signed the contract & sent the deposit. I emailed Rene to let him know the time of his performance & provided him with contact information in the event he needed help sneaking into the venue’s Bridal Suite. Fast forward to the week of our wedding, Rene called me personally to confirm the appearance & details. He arrived on time and in fashion with an American flag tuxedo vest & red shoes. Directly following dinner, my husband and I did our “Thank You” speech for our guests and, at the end, I introduced Rene as my husband’s wedding gift. He was fantastic! Rene came out, greeted both my husband and myself and, after a brief introduction, sang the National Anthem as our 200 guests waved American Flags in the air. It was beautiful & the perfect tribute to our Veterans on a day that is also very much about them. Rene stayed & posed for as many pictures as it took to satisfy our guests & vendors, danced with my husband’s mother & grandmother & even sent a video tribute to my sister-in-law’s cousin currently serving overseas. Two months later, we are still hearing about how fantastic Rene was. We both come from big hockey families & I’m so grateful this surprise worked out as well as it did!”
