The Fashion Show Wedding Cocktail Hour

We’ve historically had requests for “New York City” style cocktail hours featuring house music and other trendy music. Inspired by our participation in a recent hair art fashion show that had us playing in the style of New York Fashion Week, we’ve put together a themed cocktail hour playlist.  To reflect the expanded musical range of the typical upscale fashion show, we’ve include a variety of musical genres including R&B, deep house, 80s and Nu-Disco.  Representative artists include Sade, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Kaskade, Disclosure and Todd Terje.

For a signature drink, we’ve selected the distinctive Negroni, a cocktail that mixes gin, Campari and vermouth – garnished with an orange wedge.  Sip it slowly, as this cocktail packs a punch!  To learn how to mix a Negroni, click here.

Immediately below the playlist, listen to the music unmixed on Spotify.  Following is a continuous fashion show mix that incorporates numerous remixes that are not available on Spotify.   In particular, we spotlight several creations from Luke Rizzo (aka DJ Cloak Dagger’s) “Noc Boots” record label.  noc_boots_04
