Wedding Music and Diversity



I am delighted to share DJ Carl's latest music mix with you this week. Carl will be a regular contributor to the blog monthly, and I will be eager to share his well-prepared music mixes with you to kick off each month.

This month, Carl wanted to illustrate wedding music and diversity:

"The diversity of music has made wedding music programming challenging for experienced professionals. Hiring a band or DJ who can keep the flow non-stop once guests start dancing is an important variable when considering your musical entertainment. Here is a mix that may appeal to diverse guests from different parts of the world who want the music to be really different from traditional wedding play lists, yet the music is themed around the word "DANCING". I hope you like the song transitions because that is what would make these songs successful."

From a planner's perspective, I can tell you that our main "music goal" is to have our guests {every guest!}emotionally and musically engaged at every stage of the evening. Thoughtful and careful planning with your musical host will ensure that very success you expect.

This week's music mix is fantastic and you can listen for yourself by clicking *here*

1. Rock Your Body (Oakenfold Remix) by Justin Timberlake (R&B/Pop)
2. Dance Hall Soca by Byrin Lee & Dragonaires (Soca)

4. Hella Good by No Doubt (Rock)
5. Toot Toot by Rockin' Sidney Simien (Zydeco)

Cheers!

If you want something very contemporary and different for your wedding dancing, this sure qualifies!
