Beach Themed Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist

It's day #5 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!

Christopher Smith, aka DJ Spinz can't wait for summer, and accordingly has prepared a beach-themed wedding cocktail hour full of reggae sunshine, alternative rock and soul classics. Being located in Central NJ with easy access to the banquet facilities of the Jersey Shore, this playlist will surely come in handy for our upcoming wedding season. Reflecting the casual oceanfront vibe of the playlist, Chris has selected the well-known Jamaican beer Red Stripe as his signature drink! Random Fact- One of Ambient DJs' music mixologists is vacationing in Jamaica this summer - can you guess who?

Read on to catch some warmth from Mr. Spinzy's playlist!
