It probably happened to every bandleader, but I confirmed this one with this musician's son. The father of the chosson goes over to the bandleader and says "Remember- I don't like Yidden, and I don't want Moshiach."
Reminds me of a guy I knew in yeshiva. He'd hired a chassidishe band for his wedding because he wanted chassidic nigunim and no rock at his wedding and thought they were the most suited to his taste. At the affair, they started to play Yidden, and the chosson ran over to stop them. Later that week, at Sheva Brachos, his brother stood up and prefaced his speech by saying you're supposed to say nice things about the chosson, "what can one say about a guy who killed Yidden?"
