When choosing your music, it is important that you take into consideration the theme of your event. It would be a great idea to hire musicians that can produce the kind of songs that you've been looking for. They should be able to change the type of music smoothly and flawlessly. It is essential that you select songs or background music that are mildly upbeat to avoid guests from nodding off or falling asleep. Pop jazz music is the ideal genre for this. Never play blaring rock music that can cause headache not only to you but also to your guests as well. It is always a good idea to use instrumental music from popular songs. Add a twist by arranging it with catchy jazz hooks. Vocals are usually not needed, and this can surely catch your guests' attention.

The background music during your wedding reception is just as important as the decorations you have painstakingly organized to get the perfect picture. The right music will certainly give you the perfect ambiance that you have always been looking for. It serves as a relaxing lullaby for your guests while eating and talking to each other. This can also perk them up when it is time for the guests to participate in a program or when you want them to start dancing. One thing's for sureā€”the music can control the environment that you are aiming for.

Choosing dinner music for a wedding reception requires finding an upbeat but mellow set of songs that won't overpower the mingling and conversation of your guests during the meal; for example, find the perfect wedding dinner music with Solo Piano or small band performing: Smooth Jazz, Bossa Nova, Pop, or Tango,

Good Luck,

Francis X Danis

Fran was my pianist at my wedding on 04Oct2015 at the Moorestown Community House, and he was amazing. I wanted a pianist to add elegance to my happy hour instead of having my DJ play music and it worked out perfectly. Everyone loved him and gave me so many compliments. He was very professional, arrived on time, and set the tone just as I imagined. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful, elegant cocktail hour or wedding for that matter. Thank you so much Fran!!!!

Mr. Danis played piano for 4 hours during our Christmas open house. At our request he played both jazz and Christmas music, though at the end of the party, the guests began making requests, and he graciously complied. I couldn't have been more pleased with his talent and professionalism. We received innumerable compliments about him during the course of the evening and would definately hire again.

Fran's music was a beautiful touch to our wedding ceremony. He was always professional and extremely accommodating. My husband and I had a few very special songs that we wanted played during our ceremony, which Fran not only learned, but also sent us samples well in advance of our big day. He did everything we asked of him and more. We were extremely happy and highly recommend his musical talent to accompany any special event. Thank you Fran! Best of luck to you and may you continue to put smiles on the faces of your audiences!
