Will you learn our first dance if it not in your repertoire?
Yes, our dance bands will learn specially requested songs.
May clients request that certain songs not be played?
Yes, we ask every Dance Band client if they wish to give us a Do Not Play List of songs, styles, genres and artists they want to make sure does not get played.
What’s the ideal way to plan the music play list?
We like to recommend that every client give us their personal music preferences in a Do Play List and a Don’t Play List. Customization is an important aspect of client satisfaction. You should enjoy dancing to music love at your own party. In addition, each of our Bandleaders and DJs have expert skills at “reading” the dance floor and on the fly being able to extend or adjust a performance style or music to mirror the response of the guests on the dance floor.
Success is blending favorite songs with additional songs that guests are enjoying on the dance floor.
