Sample 2014 Wedding Reception DJ Playlist

Here is a 2014 sample song list for a wedding reception playlist.  I've split the song list into:  dinner/cocktail music, casual dancing, slow dances and late night dance music.  This is meant to just give you an idea of what kind of music I would play if I didn't have input at all from the bride and groom.  I never go into a wedding reception with a playlist.  It has to be kept fresh and reacting to the crowd.  By tweaking a few songs here and there and playing songs in the order that works the crowd, I always get the dance floor packed!  I can't stress enough that every wedding is unique and special.  You can't just plug these songs in and hope for the best.  GOOD LUCK!  www.AllAroundRaleighDJ.com
