I've always wanted to have a "rat pack" feel to my reception during dinner. I'm starting to get a list of songs together for the dj but needed some help thinking of either songs or artist that fit that mold. Thanks!
Hey ChucksGrl -
Here are a couple of Artists that you can check out:
Harry Connick jr.
Good Luck - That will be a nice feel!
why not go with the rat pack,
sinatra has alot of great songs, strangers in the night, l.o.v.e., all the way, love and marriage and many more
i know dean martin has aint that a kick in the head (cute), and thats amore, and im sure more
sammy davis jr has a few, shen your smiling (w/sinatra and martin), love is all around, somethings gotta give, etc.
and then theres always a few elvis songs that have that same feel to them as well.
Why does November 1st seem sooooooooo far away?????
