One of the parts of the evening where entertainment for the guests often gets forgotten about is the cocktail hour. After all, the wedding party may be off getting pictures taken during this time, so the only person who could be looking after your guests is your DJ, and he needs to know what he’s doing. Here are some of the best ways to entertain your guests while they mingle and wait for your arrival.
- The 70s – The 70s offer us a lot of great music to choose from for a cocktail hour. You can go with easy listening music for an older crowd or just to support conversation. Soft rock can take the mood up just a little bit more with hits from classic artists like Elton John and Queen.
- The 80s – The 80s give you a lot of great options. From 80s pop music to funk to the emerging alternative genre and bands like REM and Jane’s Addiction, there are a lot of different directions the 80s can take you.
- The 90s – The 90s saw a revolution in music, and while there is plenty of great pop music to choose from, R&B music was brought out of the club and into the mainstream. Mary J Blige, SWV, and TLC may be just the background music for a wedding audience in their 30s and 40s who grew up with these tunes.
