Dance Floor Dynamite Vol. 2

It's Wednesday, and that means time for Vol. 2 of our series on great dancing songs. Once again we will list 5 musts, and 1 that is a habit more than a must.

1. Love Shack - B52s
This one will get the ladies on the floor....Where the ladies go... the men follow.

2. Yeah - Usher
Not one for out of the gates generally, but when people start getting tired, they can't resist dancing anyway.

3. Cupid Shuffle
Great, and easy participation dance that even Grandma will dance to.

4. Faithfully - Journey

Dance Floor Dynamite Vol. 1

There are great songs...and there are great DANCE songs. For the next 4 Wednesday's we will share 5 great songs to fill a dance floor, and 1 song that while it may not have hit the do not play list, has been wildly over used. Share your opinions!

1. V.I.C - Wobble
The Wobble is a participation dance sure to get your party moving. It is easy to learn, and your guests that don't know it, and the ones less likely to dance at all, are sure to hit the dance floor when they see everyone having this much fun.

How Much Sound Do I Need

Wedding DJ CincinnatiYou are planning your reception or event, so how much sound do you need? Well the answer is simple..... It depends.

Certainly, much of the decision will be based upon the size of your event, but the other things to strongly weigh are your personal tastes, musical genre, and room configuration. See our blog post on Reception Configuration for additional information.

Large Room?

If your room is extremely large, you simply are not going to have good coverage with a 2 speaker sound system. Sure, everyone will be able to hear in most cases, but if this is supposed to be a party, then just hearing it isn't enough.

What's Reception HOT and what is NOT

As you begin to plan your wedding and reception, there are some trends that are becoming clear in 2014. Here's what our research and experience uncovered. What is your opinion?

1. A DJ wearing a tuxedo is NOT hot. Today's receptions are becoming more informal to a degree and we are finding brides that are ditching the wedding gown immediately following the garter toss. Besides, you want to be able to distinguish the DJ from the waiters.

2. Games are NOT hot. While they have created some memorable moments over the years, couples are finding that it is more important to dance and socialize during the reception.
