cocktail hour playlists
19 Feb

Cocktail hour at any wedding or corporate event is often overlooked.  Without thought, many people consider cocktail hour to be simple background music while waiting for the main event.  Those people are making a huge mistake in their thinking.   Cocktail hour is our chance to set the tone for the rest of the event; to give the guests a taste of how things will be going moving forward. Because of this, we put just as much effort into programming our cocktail hours as we do our dance segments.  The following are some examples of cocktail hour playlists that I think you will find helpful in planning your big day.  This list is a continuing work in progress, so check back often, as I am always updating things based on trends in the music industry and the wedding industry.
