Mark Ballas And BC Jean Perform At The Cutting Room In New York City – Review, Photos, Videos By Lily

You might know Lily from comments and other Pure blogs. Well, Lily saw BC Jean and Mark Ballas, aka Alexander Jean, perform in New York City, NY at The Cutting Room. Below she tells us all about it. Lily also sent us some fun photos and beautiful videos of their performances. You will love this. Enjoy! (((((THANKS LILY!!!!))))) You are a jewel!

I’ve been a fan of Mark Ballas on DWTS because of his creativity, choreography, goofiness and of course his dance skills. I had a meet and greet with DWTS live tour in January 2015, but Mark wasn’t there that day so I was disappointed that I didn’t get to meet him. During week 9 of DWTS S21, when Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin used Alexander Jean’s song Roses and Violets, I was inspired to see them in concert when they announced their tour last year.

When Alexander Jean played Webster Hall in NYC in July 2016, I was able to meet Mark and BC before and after their show! Since then, I have been able to see Mark perform as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys in October 2016, and November 2016.

Mark tweeted about playing another gig at The Cutting Room in NYC. I was planning to go, but final plans didn’t work out until the day of the show! Marianne, another DWTS fan, was generous enough to do the driving, and we even found free parking on the street in NYC! We arrived at the venue at 10pm, and the show started shortly after 10:30pm. The setlist was as follows, in no particular order:

Thief
“The Chain” Fleetwood Mac cover
So Bad
Whiskey and Morphine
Stampede, Mark’s guitar solo
Roses and Violets
Run
Head High

If I Were a Boy – Beyonce song written by BC Jean et al.

The songs on their first EP are inspiring, and were performed with talent, passion & chemistry. The show ended around 12:15 am. Many of the Jersey Boys cast were there to show support. There were also friends of Val Chmerkovskiy who were there to support Mark and BC such as Nicole Volynets.

We all waited around for Mark and BC to greet the fans. Marianne and I got on line to wait to talk with Mark and BC Jean. When it was my turn, I said hello and introduced myself, and they both said it was nice to see you again, and always show your support. I said something like “you remembered”? Mark said “It’s hard to forget you. Thank you for always showing your support”! Awwwww!

I was holding a photobook that I made, and Mark asked “what do you have there”? I said I made a photobook and showed him the page of our meet and greet from July, and asked them both to sign the page. They were happy to oblige, and then we proceeded to pose for our pictures.

Marianne was taking pictures during our talking & signing, so when it was time for the posed picture, the camera wasn’t ready, so we had to wait a few seconds. She was able to take a couple of pictures. Mark also asked me to tag him when I post the pictures. After saying thank you, and that I will miss them, they promised that they will come back in the summer for their second EP release. Afterwards, I asked Mark if he will be doing DWTS, and he made a hand gesture about being not sure! We shall see!

We left the venue around 1:50 am. Marianne dropped me off at 2:30am, and she didn’t get home until 3:50 am so it was a late night for sure, but we had a great time! Thank you Mark and BC!

Here are some pictures and videos. I tweeted some pictures and videos, and Shirley Ballas liked them. Enjoy!

BC Jean Talks Of Her Wedding Tango With DWTS Mark Ballas, More Stunning Wedding Photos

If you’d like to view more photos of Mark Ballas’ and BC Jean’s wedding, see The Knot News. They are stunning to say the least. You can also read more details on the wedding. Below BC talks of doing the Tango and gives some wedding advice….

The couple shared their first dance to Coldplay’s “Magic,” but surprised their guests by breaking into a tango halfway through the dreamy tune. (It was, after all, Mark Ballas’ wedding!) “No one has [really] seen me dance,” Jean continues. “I’ve never seen myself do the tango either, so it was fun to get a sexy little number in. Everyone’s faces were priceless.”

Ballas proposed to Jean on November 25, 2015. The pair loved the idea of marrying on their engagement anniversary, but with their busy schedules, the date was difficult to nail down. The day after they mailed out their wedding invitations, they found out they were moving to New York. “We thought we might have to change the date again, but we luckily made it all work out,” she says. “It seemed very symbolic for us, and we’re so happy we got to do it on November 25.”

Looking back, Jean has some personal wedding advice to share with The Knot readers. “Don’t blink; it goes by so fast,” she notes. “Incorporate all the things that are you. When you’re planning a wedding, there are so many people [who] love you and want to help… People want to give overwhelmingly.” In the end, says the bride, “Keeping it true to [yourselves] is very important.”

Sneak Peek Of Mark Ballas’ And BC Jean’s Wedding Photos, More Details On Their Wedding

As you know from a previous posting, Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas married BC Jean last Friday in Los Angeles, California. Today, Good Morning America previewed some of the professional photos which you can watch HERE. You can also read more details below on the wedding courtesy of People. There is also a cool People VIDEO here. Be sure to pick up this week’s issue of People for even more. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for recording.

For the actual wedding on Nov. 25, the 29-year-old bride says the couple “went for an earthy vibe” and exchanged vows at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu in front of a 100-year-old oak tree and had and sage and jasmine burning during the ceremony.

“We did a very eclectic, boho-chic design with rustic hints that created a very elegant and personalized look,” says celebrity events planner David Tutera, who helped Ballas and Jean plan the big day alongside Slomique Hawrylo.

For more from Mark Ballas and BC Jean’s wedding — including all about their epic first dance and wedding cake — pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. Special video of the couple’s journey to the alter is now streaming on People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN).

As musicians, the music at the ceremony was important to the couple. Ballas and Jean’s families walked down the aisle, which was lined with “bohemian carpets,” to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” Mark and his groomsmen walked to a Vitamin String Quartet cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” while Jean’s bridesmaids walked to a cover of The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.” The bride walked with her father to an original cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and after the vows, the couple walked with their 2-year-old rescue dog Hendrix to an original cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together.”

The guest list for the big day read like a list of DWTS all-star season. Among the 160 guests — who were sent custom invitations by Invitations by Dawn — were Julianne Hough, Cheryl Burke, Valentin Chermkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Emma Slater, Sharna Burgess, Allison Holker, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, Candace Cameron Bure, Leah Remini, Alfonso Ribeiro and Kristi Yamaguchi.

“It’s a wild feeling,” Ballas tells PEOPLE of marrying Jean (née Brittney Jean Carlson). “Your wedding is something you subconsciously prepare for your entire life. You wonder who it’s going to be with, where it is going to be and how the ceremony and reception are going to be. Now it’s finally here and happening. It’s surreal. I just want to soak it all up because I just know I’m going to click my fingers and the whole evening will be over and I want to make sure I enjoy it.”

Approximately 160 guests — including Ballas’ best man Derek Hough — attended the ceremony and reception Friday.

“I’m so grateful so many family and friends were able to travel here to celebrate our wedding,” says Ballas, who is starring as Frankie Valli in Broadway’s Jersey Boys. “It’s going to be a night of amazing moments.”
