We love wedding cocktail hours with their delicious appetizers, sophisticated cocktails and cool soundscapes. Therefore, we have declared the week of February 18, 2013 as “Wedding Cocktail Hour Week.” During this week, we will share ten wedding cocktail hour playlists selected by our Ambient DJ Music Mixologists. Each DJ has also selected a matching liquid refreshment to compliment the vibe of his playlist!
Alain Adams aka "DJ AQ" (short for "DJ Aqueous") hails from Philadelphia but has selected a drink associated with Long Island. Yes, you guessed it - the infamous Long Island Iced Tea! Alain selected the Long Island Tea as his signature drink because it is the true definition of a mixed drink! DJ AQ's mix concept features a wicked mix of genres, similar to how a long Long Island Iced Tea contains no less than five different types of alcohol (vodka, gin, rum, Triple Sec, and tequila). Expertly mixed, a Long Island Iced Tea tastes smooth and sweet and takes on the color of ordinary iced tea.
The DJ AQ approach to a cocktail hour falls in line with being a true Ambient DJ, finding the song selection that is just right for that particular setting. Alain reads the crowd and plays songs that each guest will enjoy. Read on to enjoy the wedding cocktail hour playlist from master mixologist DJ AQ - you might even catch a buzz!
