Most people love weddings. They are great social occasions. Naturally, for the bride and groom, the service is the most important, and memorable, part of the day. However, for the majority of your guests, it is likely to be the reception that they will enjoy the most.
Therefore, choosing the right band for your wedding reception is crucial. If you get it right, everyone will have a good time and go home with some great memories.
You need to be sure to hire an experienced Leeds party band that can play the kind of music your guests are likely to enjoy the most. Getting the mix of music right for an event can be tricky. This is especially the case for a wedding. You will need to choose songs that will appeal to people of all age groups, with a range of musical tastes.
Fortunately, there are plenty of songs that appeal to virtually everyone. If your wedding band sprinkles their set list with these, you should find that most people get up and dance to them. Here are a few examples to get you started.
This happy track usually gets everyone singing as well as dancing. The fact it is a song about celebration and elation makes it perfect for a wedding.
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
If you are looking for a lovely first dance this is a nice option. Everyone knows this beautiful romantic song, so it is a good way to break the ice and make sure that everyone starts the evening as he or she means to go on. It is also a nice song to play later in the evening when energy levels are a little low.
I Heard it Through the Grapevine
Everyone regardless of age knows this classic pop tune. It is upbeat enough to get most people onto the dance floor, but not so fast, that your older guests cannot enjoy dancing to it too.
Every now and again, it is good to shake things up a bit and play something high energy. Le Freak certainly fits the bill. The fact that several bands have sampled this track, over the years, means that each generation is familiar with this song.
This fun, joyful song always brings the generations together. It is loved by most people who have heard it. Playing Happy by Pharrell Williams is always a good way to lift the spirits and re-energise everyone.
All of the above songs are great choices for a wedding reception. If you would like more ideas, you can find some by clicking this link.
Of course, not every wedding band will be able to play all of the above songs. Do not let this worry you. A good wedding band will help you to choose other tracks that will also get your friends and family up, dancing and enjoying themselves. You just need to take the time to discuss your preferred playlist with the band before you actually hire them.
