"While there are many elements that contribute to an outstanding gathering, music is the sure fire way to set the perfect mood."
When you’re planning your get-together, think about the kind of mood you want to create—and then create a playlist with that event in mind.
I’ve created playlists for many of our barbecues and house parties. I even created the playlists for our wedding rehearsal dinner and reception (prior to having Biz Markie DJ the after-party).
Think about what kind of ambience you want: Casual? Upbeat? Sultry? Mellow? My taste in house party/BBQ music is usually some combination of upbeat soul classics and hip-hop. From Marvin to Kanye, Aretha to Jay-Z, and a lot in between. I’ve pulled together some of my favorites, some old, some new, all guaranteed to set the right ambience.
