Recently, we've had a couple of prospective clients ask to see our 'standard wedding playlist', this confused us because we aren't sure such a thing actually exists!
All of our packages offer our clients to create a playlist with us, meaning we are sure we will play some of the key songs which have significance to them and also meaning we can choose songs which fit perfectly around those they have chosen.
Without a doubt, there are popular songs which will feature at many of the weddings we play at but, in the last year, we have played Metal, UK Garage, 80s and 90s themed parties and weddings which haven't featured any at all!
At weddings, it is very rare for us to have any idea what we are going to play 2 or 3 songs ahead - the crowd can change so quickly and we are skilled at quickly adapting to the needs/wants of them! Not only that, but as we actively encourage requests (both verbally and through our 'request cards') it can be these that guide the course of the musical journey. Of course, should someone request 'Darude - Sandstorm' at 9pm it is highly likely we might well 'save'; that one for a later time! But, if we have a glut of requests for cheesy 90's classics like 'B*witched' then that is where the music takes us!
When you write your playlist if you have lots of classic 90's dance, it is safe for us to say that you are a particular fan of 90's dance and we'll continue to play some of those classics until the mood of the night takes us in a different direction. However, when a smaller playlist is received we will 'test the waters' and play a selection of different music to see what the crowd want - sticking with those genres which get people on the floor. Remember - playlists are guides for your DJ. They aren't going to play your list and then play something completely different. Give us the soundtrack to your relationship and your lives, let us fill in the blanks!
