Technically “boy bands” go back to the 1950s and 1960s with acts like The Beatles, Monkees, Osmonds and Jackson Five. However, in this blog installment, master music mixologist DJ Iron Mike selects boy bands from the 1980s through the present crop. Sample artists include the Backstreet Boys, ‘NSync, New Kids on the Block, Color Me Badd, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, the Jonas Brothers, One Direction – and more!
Boys bands – typically manufactured by promoters to target the masses with handsome young men, pleasing harmonies, fancy dance moves and catchy pop hooks can be particularly nostalgic to brides who enjoyed these acts during their formative years. So why not take a walk down memory lane with this Boy Bands playlist at your wedding?
Boy bands typically offer bubble gum pop music. Accordingly, for a signature drink we selected a “Bubble Martini” made with Three Olives “Bubble” vodka. Learn how to mix one by clicking here.
