Ask the Experts: Small Reception Entertainment Suggestions

Marta BlockContributor

Question: I'm having a small cocktail reception for 60 people. What sort of entertainment do you suggest?

A: With a small guest list, you want to keep the entertainment small as well.

If you want dancing, and have a dance floor, talk to bands about providing the smallest ensemble they have available that can still handle the types of dances you want to have. A DJ who understands the constraints of small spaces would also work well. 

If you are not planning on having a lot of dancing, but would still like to have a first dance, consider a string  or jazz quartet.

If you just want background music, any small ensemble or soloist would work.
