shoes on dance floor Hey Mr. DJ!  Play Something We Can DANCE To!I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard people complain about their DJ not playing the right dance music at their wedding reception.   But what exactly is “the right music”?  When asked, brides say they want music that’s fun and danceable. But when I ask for specific song requests, my clients don’t always know the titles and artists’ names.

 

Most good DJ services will provide an extensive list of song selections which may or may not be right for your guests.  Overwhelmed by the hundreds (or even thousands) of songs to choose from, the bride & groom will choose some of their favorites or they’ll just leave it up to their DJ.  An excellent DJ will be able to quickly read the crowd and determine which songs to play and when to play them.  He or she will have some gems (secret weapons if you will) that will pack the dance floor and keep it packed all night.

 

Now, some critics might say, “Yes, I know…the same cheesy songs that are overplayed at every wedding reception in the country”.  And some brides & grooms demand that their DJ NOT play any of these songs and play their eclectic favorites instead.  Then, on their wedding day, they wonder why no one (including themselves) is dancing.  But there is a reason why these so-called “cheesey” songs are still played.  They are played because THEY WORK!!

Some songs are classic and work every time for every wedding because they appeal to all ages and are fun to dance to.  The key is having a DJ who can feel the vibe of the crowd and then give the right mix of classic and newer music to keep the dance floor crowded.  This takes a great deal of knowledge and experience in doing hundreds of weddings.  So to help you get started, here are some of my top wedding “gems” to keep your dance floor sizzling!
