Classic Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist

It's day #6 of our self-proclaimed “Wedding Cocktail Hour Week.” We have been sharing themed wedding cocktail hour playlists selected by our Ambient DJ Music Mixologists. A matching liquid refreshment has also been selected for each mix to compliment the vibe of the playlist!

DJ Garrett Bargiacchi, aka "DJ Garrett B." is Ambient's newest hire (2011). We became acquainted with Garrett at a party where he was the client! His interest in DJ'ing, music production, lighting and parties identified him as a great potential hire, and we're thrilled to have Garrett on our team!

Garrett's coctkail hour playlist that follows contains a mixture of classic styles spanning crooners (Sinatra, Martin, Buble, Bocelli), soft modern rock (Mraz, Maroon 5, Mayer) and a Motown/soul finish (Winehouse, Temptations, Four Tops). Garrett concocted this mix realizing that weddings are classic occasions featuring guests of all ages. The selected drink to compliment the mix is the classic Tanqueray & Tonic (with a lime).
