At Epic 1 DJ, we give all of our couples their own web page to choose music online. My Casa Romantica bride, told me that her guests were going to be rowdy and wanting to dance. She chose all EDM artists such as, David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Martin Garrix. The crowd was unresponsive to the top songs from these artists.
I then had a request for Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond and the guest said that his friends love to sing to that song. I put the song on and the crowd responded.
The Dance floor was packed… then another guest asked for American Pie by Don MCclean and the crowd went wild.. (what?) Then I knew that I had a sing along crowd and played Piano Man by Billy Joel and Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey. All of these songs were a hit and ignited the dance floor. The rest of the night we played oldies, Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, Twist and Shout with some current hits by Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake.
Every wedding is different and every crowd responds in a different way. It is the DJ’s responsibility to make the party happen. As you can see from this video clip… everyone had a great time.
