Wedding Music, Aly & Kevin

October 14, 2016




I was so pumped when I got this playlist and guidelines for me to build off of.   Aly & Kevin knew exactly what their guests would respond to and they certainly did!  One of the special touches I liked the most is them giving me artists/genres for prelude and dinner and allowing me to build the list myself. I also enjoyed creating their first set of dance music between courses from the 90’s R-N-B hits I used to spin when I was a club DJ.  Beat-mixing  them together is so much fun!
