Sure Ways and Great Songs to Keep the Dance Floor Lively!

Weddings that are the most fun for the guests are ones where everyone, no matter their age, is out on the dance floor laughing, dancing, and having a blast!  To make sure your party starts off strong and develops into an all-night dance party, we have a few tips:

  1. Your Mood is Contagious -  When the newlyweds are having an absolute blast, the guests join in the fun. Get your party off to a good start by communicating ahead of time and having the wedding party join you to begin the dancing. Everyone came to see you and they will join you wherever you are – so bring them onto the dance floor!

  2. Follow the Band’s Lead - The band you hire will be pros at reading and interacting with the crowd and will ensure everyone is dancing and having a great time. While you may have a specific playlist in mind, the band understands how to adjust to the mood of the crowd throughout the evening. Usually the best course of action  is to review the band’s song list and let them know which songs you would not like them to play, then let the band do what they do best. They will have your family and friends entertained and dancing all evening. 

  3. Don't Limit the Genre - Make sure your playlist includes a bit of everything to ensure that there is a little something for everyone.  Your wedding will be a celebration of the two of you and will reflect your taste in music, but it is also time shared with extended family and friends.  Be sure to keep that in mind while working with your band on your playlist. The band will have a set list that includes something fun for the grandparents, aunts and uncles, as well as the latest dance craze that is sweeping the clubs. A few minutes of a classic Frank Sinatra that brings Pops and Nana back to their courtship and tempts them to the dance floor will be worth it and make for a memorable evening that everyone enjoys.
