The world of parties and DJs are always changing, looking for the next bigger and better offer. Why shouldn’t it be? With the increase in technology and change in music, we all want our party to reflect the hottest new trends! So what are these awesome new trends you may ask? Take a look!
Fusion (mix between live and recorded music)
If you cannot decide between recorded and live music, fusion may be the way to go! With no compromise needed, you can combine the best of both worlds. The best part about fusion is that the options are endless with how to create an amazing experience!
“Guilty Pleasure Songs”
A good throwback played at your wedding is one thing, but a playlist made-up of your “guilty pleasure”, sing-in-the-shower-worthy songs are a whole other story! Playing these nostalgic songs will not only bring up great memories with your family and friends, but keep the dance floor packed from start to finish! So go ahead, get in a circle with your closest group of friends and belt out the words to your favorite Destiny’s Child jam! I promise no one is judging you, they are only wishing they could join in on the fun.
- Boy Bands (such as Backstreet Boys)
- Britney Spears
- Michelle Branch
- Spice Girls
- “Old School” Gwen Stefani
- Destiny’s Child
Unique Couple Entrances
The ordinary walk-in to a room of clapping hands are familiar faces is out – and the fun, unique entrance is in! This is your time to shine and show off what makes you and your significant other so perfect for each other. If you and your husband/wife love to act then try putting on a skit, if you love to sing along to your favorite songs (see trend above) then perform a lip sync battle for your guests; the options are endless and definitely unforgettable.
