Wedding Playlist : The Metropolitan Building : Long Island City 2014

In addition to being an all-around spirited evening, this wedding was truly exceptional in my ability during post-dinner dancing to zero-in on a very specific sound (British & American Indie/Alternative of the ’70s—’90s with a dash of Electro-pop), and have the guests really go along with the ride. It is much more common to present a wider scope of sounds & genres at weddings, but in this particular case, the guests were so keen and enthusiastic about what I was doing, that there was no need to go outside of the genres & artists that my clients had told me that they loved.
