Keeping The Dance floor Busy

Being in a wedding band like Rock My Reception is always a case of having to second guess what the audience want to hear next.

Often we work up to 3 or sometimes 4 songs in front deciding what we will play next. We find this is the most successful way of working as opposed to rigidly sticking to a set-list.

When the dance floor gets busy we have to work hard at keeping everyone up there dancing. Here is a list of which songs we find to be most successful at keeping the energy up….
