Songlist

We’ve found that a growing percentage of our clients want to have some rap, hip hop, and Top 40 music played (in addition to the more traditional wedding band material that we play such as jazz, funk, rock, swing and R&B). To that end, we’ve decided to incorporate a DJ into our show so that we can tailor the music more accurately to our client’s and their guests’ wishes. No need to choose between a versatile, more traditional wedding band and one that specializes in hip hop and Top 40. You can have it all. Just let our DJ know ahead of time (as well as the day of) which of the newer hits you’d like to hear and we’ll add them to the evening’s setlist. No need to pay for a band and a DJ; this service is included at no extra cost.

While most bands seem to list every song they can think of whether they know them or not, we prefer to merely list the songs we are asked to play most often. We could have listed the over two thousand songs that we know, perhaps including several that you were hoping to find. So if a particular song, band or style of music isn’t listed below, it doesn’t mean we don’t know it! Let us know what you like, and we’ll tailor the set list to you.
