Having the right music at your party can mean the diﬀerence between hosting a run-of-the-mill event and one that everyone will remember for years to come. The type of music you choose is one of the biggest factors in orchestrating a successful gathering.
How do you decide on the music? The ﬁrst step is to consider what kind of event you’ll be having. Is it a formal or casual event? The music for a college graduation celebration will be very diﬀerent from a corporate VIP dinner.
Next, consider the general age of your guests. The ideal tunes for your 25 year-old friends are a far cry from the favorite songs of your grandparents’ generation. A homogeneous group will make your job a little easier. One strategy is to select popular songs from your guests’ high school and college years.
For parties with a range of ages, it’s tough to ﬁnd music that everyone likes. Since you can’t please everyone all of the time, your best bet is to compile a mix of the decade’s most popular songs in a variety of genres. That way, everyone will likely hear a few songs that they enjoy.
Depending on the party’s theme and the mood you’re trying to create, you can choose jazz, rock, pop, soul, alternative, instrumental, or just about any other genre you can imagine. You can hire a DJ or a live band. If you can’t decide, you can leave the musical repertoire entirely up to the professionals at Bialek’s Music.
