Retro Soul Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist

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!

Gregg Hollmann, aka "DJ Gregg Ambient returns with his personally most enjoyable cocktail hour playlist titled the "Retro Soul" wedding cocktail hour featuring the likes of Adele, Amy Winehouse, John Legend and the Robert Glasper Experiment. To reflect the top-shelf nature of these artists, Gregg selected the ultra-premium Ciroc Havana Coconut Martini as his signature cocktail! The following mix would be ideal for wedding couples fond of jazz, R&B and soul.

Shake up that Ciroc, and let's get started!
