It's day #3 of our self-proclaimed “Wedding Cocktail Hour Week.” We have been sharing themed 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 their playlist!
Gary Giarretta, aka "DJ Gary G. has titled his wedding cocktail hour playlist "Head to Shoulder Dip" and selected the Hairy Navel as his signature cocktail! Although a beer and wine type of guy himself, Gary selected the Hairy Navel, stating that this smooth cocktail can make any guest the life of the party! As for his title of "Head to Shoulder Dip" - in programming for wedding cocktail hours, DJ Gary G. opts for songs that will result in mingling guests to dip their heads towards their shoulders to the beat. Rather than focusing on lyrics, Gary gravitates towards songs with the best melodies and hooks, occasionally thinking outside of the box to achieve the perfect mix.
Bottoms up, it's DJ Gary G.'s Head to Shoulder Dip wedding cocktail hour list!
