  1. A great list. Thanks for sharing. Some of these I’ve played in bands before, but you’ve given me some good ideas to offer future wedding couples what songs they might want to hear for the evening party.

  2. THANK YOU for sharing this. I’ve gone to countless weddings/events that don’t play the right mix, and it definitely hurts the dance floor.
