The 90s Grunge Rock Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist - Compiled by Pash & David

For our 36th installment in the wedding cocktail hour playlist series, we've invited our first ever guest bloggers Pash & David. Who are Pash & David? They are newlyweds (married less than a week ago) who we were honored to provide DJ entertainment services for. They are also music lovers - in fact it was our Miami Vice Wedding cocktail hour playlist on this blog that initially caught their attention.

The subject of this duo's playlist is 90s Grunge Rock. Representative artists include Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Hole, Radiohead, Soundgarden and Candlebox. If you are looking for warm and cheery music - this is NOT the playlist for you. However, if you're looking for vintage 90s grunge that brings back a feeling, then look no further!

For a signature drink, Pash & David selected an appropriately sour drink - the Whiskey Sour (they recommend Jameson). To learn how to mix a Whiskey Sour, click here.
