10 songs for your cocktail hour:  The live wedding band music that soundtracks a cocktail party or cocktail hour needs to be neutral enough to not overpower the pockets of conversations of your guests, but also nuanced enough to provide a texture and sets a tone so your guests sense a feeling just as much as hear the tunes. We love cocktail parties – the swankier, all the better.  Here are some of our favorites to play during that stemware-swirling mingling time:

Check out our Song List!

10. All of Me … as a jump-swing or Sinatra-croon, this is a classic

9. For Once in My Life – Stevie Wonder’s joyous bounce or Tony Bennett’s swinging version, either one is a hit

8. L-O-V-E – perfect for a trio to play in the style Nat King Cole perfected

7. By Your Side – smooth Sade pairs perfectly with a crisp Chardonnay

6. Cruisin’ – with sun setting on the cocktail hour, Smokey Robinson’s classic is perfection

5. Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton at his most romantic 

4. Valerie – This Amy Winehouse tune is one of our favorites to perform 

3. It Had to Be You – Harry Connick Jr reinvented this classic and its an evergreen hit at a cocktail party

2. Love Song – The Cure hooks you in from the first guitar and bass strum

1. Moondance – Van Morrison classic that will have guests subconsciously snapping their fingers or nodding along
