The Halloween Playlist

What does every great Halloween party need? Some spooky decor, awesome costumes, tons of candy, some ghoulish drinks, and of course, a great playlist of Halloween-themed songs! And while I can’t help you with the first four – I’ll be busy decking out my parents’ driveway once again and entertaining trick-or-treaters as they get candy from my mom (who only gives out the good stuff!) – I can help you with my Spotify playlist of over 50 songs that are perfect for your Halloween party!

When it comes to Cocktail Hour music at a wedding reception, there may not be a more popular playlist than this Rat Pack Era inspired mix. There is just something timeless about listening to the soothing voices of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Etta James, Louis Armstrong, and other classical jazz vocalists, while sipping cocktails and mingling with family and friends. Whether your wedding’s theme is sophisticated, classy, traditional, timeless, or any combination of the aforementioned,  this Classic Crooners Cocktail Hour playlist will set the perfect mood and atmosphere.

90s Hip-Hop & R&B Songs That Still Crush Weddings, Vol. 1

Aww yeah! As a kid growing up in the 90s who never got into grunge music, there were two genres I really liked: country and hip-hop music. To this day, when I opt to listen to some hip-hop and r&b, I listen to the songs of this “Golden Era” most of the time. And there’s so many songs to choose from! More than likely, I will do a couple of versions of this playlist as most of my brides and grooms love to get down to some 90s hip-hop and/or r&b at their wedding reception!

The 90s R&B Cocktail Hour Playlist, Volume One

Back when I used to play bars and nightclubs, I would play a ton of 90s R&B to start off the night. In my opinion, no other genre of music set a better atmosphere, mood, and/or tone for a good party like some great uptempo 90s R&B. As it turns out, with a little bit of research and proper programming, it’s also a great genre to feature during the Cocktail Hour at a wedding reception.

The Country Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist, Volume One

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we love our country music. And with so many barns and rustic-themed venues, country is the perfect genre to feature during the cocktail hour of a wedding reception. So, I’ve designed a mid- to uptempo playlist of modern country hits and classic favorites that are perfect for socializing with family and friends over a few cold ones.
