The music is the one which creates the party atmosphere by making your guests head to the dance floor. The sophistication and swing of current jazz has a strong appeal that can captivate everyone’s mind. If you are wondering about how to choose one that will fit perfectly to your event, here are some tips.

Playing Music on the Guests’ Arrival

Jazz songs from the period between the 30s and 40s are some of the most popular ones that can quickly set the tone of the evening. Tunes made famous by great musicians are classic standards that will evoke just the right mood for your reception.

Mojito Jazz Band

They prefer to sit back at your event so as to be unobtrusive, still spreading some soft cool music in the room while your guests can chat with each other while enjoying the mesmeric musical atmosphere. Mojito are fortunate to play at some of the area’s most prestigious venues and as an experienced wedding band they have played at several hotels in the area.

Avoid Low Points

In order to go with the flow of the party and avoid low points, you can plan ahead. You should list events like bouquet, toasts, garter toss and cake cutting on the timeline and can schedule the musicians’ break to coincide with all of them.

Pick Your Songs Beforehand

Professional musicians like Mojito can play hundreds of songs; however in a four-hour event, about 50 songs can be played. It’s recommendable to choose about 25 songs you would like to have and also hand them a list of songs you don’t want to hear. Ensure also that they get at least 4 to 5 weeks in advance to work on any special choice.

Make your guests remember your wedding with the superb music you choose that will turn your wedding venue into a melodious heaven!
