screen shot 2015-01-17 at 11.34.52 amFor the 47th episode of our wedding cocktail hour playlist series, we called in specialists Kris Longwell and Wesley Loon to compile an all Broadway music wedding cocktail hour. Kris and Wesley are recent wedding clients of ours, and both have theater backgrounds. They are huge Broadway fans, and have compiled a terrific list of show tunes from recent and classic Broadway theater productions. Sample shows include Wicked, Rent, Ragtime, 42nd Street, Les Miserables and Evita.

For their signature cocktail, this dynamic duo selected the Fuzzy Greyhound, a sweet, fruity, vodka-based cocktail. To learn how to mix a Fuzzy Greyhound, click here.
