The New Years Eve Style Wedding Cocktail Hour

December 28, 2016 by Mobile Beat

djga_lowres_winter_2013-2While New Years Eve is nearly a week past, this fun party atmosphere can be re-created any night of the year. New Years Eve is a time to reflect upon the year gone by – with all of its memories good and bad. New Years Eve is a time to get sentimental. It’s also a time to look forward with hope for the coming year.

The tracks on this playlist compiled by our DJ Gregg Ambient reflect the sentimental, flamboyant and festive nature of a New Years Eve celebration. Representative selections include tracks from the late 70s and early 80s (Herb Alpert, Chuck Mangione, George Benson), dramatic sax players (Kenny G, Gato Barbieri) and a slew of upbeat disco and R&B artists (Whitney Houston, DeBarge, George McCrae, Cerrone) and many more. The later section of the set introduces more danceable selections in anticipation of the dance party to follow.

For New Years Eve, you’d better be uncorking a bottle of fine champagne! As a signature drink, we’ve selected a tasty bottle of Moet & Chandon. Cheers to you!
