Over the past few weeks I’ve invited a variety of DJs from Scratch Weddings to supply a guest mix! Each mix was based on a certain part of the wedding day, and will hopefully provide you with some musical inspiration for your day! Today I’m wrapping it up with DJ PC3 and his pics for dance party jams!
Wedding DJs (and DJs playing anywhere for that matter) typically only have one goal for their sets: getting people to dance. How a DJ accomplishes this differs from set to set, venue to venue. Weddings however, have a much more diverse audience by nature with an eclectic range of musical tastes to consider, most important of which are the bride’s and groom’s. However, in order for the reception to be a true resounding success, a good portion of the songs have to be timeless and appeal universally. The songs below are ten tried and true tracks to get guests dancing that crop up more often than not…and with good reason!
Old Time Rock and Roll – Bob Seger
Got To Give It Up – Marvin Gaye
Wishing & Hoping – Dusty Springfield
Carnival – Celia Cruz
Before I Let Go – Frankie Beverly & Maze
I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross
Fly Me to the Moon – Frank Sinatra
Shout – The Isley Brothers
Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
Celebration – Kool & the Gang
