“Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” by Lauryn Hill
“It’s the perfect song for warming up the dance floor during dinner or cocktail hour,” shares veteran wedding DJ Petey Randall of Queue DJ. “This refreshing rendition of the Frankie Valli classic adds a heavy baseline that’s great for making people feel like dancing, long before the dancing officially kicks off.”
“Let’s Get Married” (ReMarqable Remix) by Jagged Edge
“There are a lot of love songs out there, but not too many that talk you through an entire wedding ceremony in detail. This song is a great choice during the transition from dinner music to dance party.” DJ Petey suggests playing this when there’s a lull in conversation or ceremonial affairs.
“Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba
“Nostalgia is a very powerful force when it comes to music. Fill your playlist with fun throwbacks that transport you to a memorable time or place. A good DJ will seamlessly integrate these jaunts down memory lane with more contemporary party music, creating a mix that is both unique and timeless.” We hear you, DJ Petey, but we also think Tubthumping is just a great song to cheers, l’chaim, and salute to! Find out how to say “cheers!” in every language.
