The Valentines Day Wedding Cocktail Hour (Volume 3)

Valentines Day is of sufficiently high interest to wedding DJs that we’ve returned for a third pass.  Behold The Valentines Day Wedding Cocktail Hour – Volume 3 featuring excursions into R&B, Disco and Reggae.

The set begins with “I Couldn’t Love You More” – a sexy edit of the Sade original produced by Touchsoul from the Noc Boots record label (Noc Boots is a record label run by Ambient DJ mixologist Luke Rizzo, aka DJ Cloak Dagger).  Check out the wonderful Noc Boots music catalog at


Other noted remixers in the set include Discotron (Through the Fire) and David Guetta (Versace on the Floor). The duration of the set features a range of classic and contemporary artists who deliver soul and sex appeal.

For a signature drink, we’ve selected a brilliant red pomengranate martini.  Learn how to mix one – plus some cool variations – by clicking here.

The Valentines Day Wedding Cocktail Hour (Volume 2)

As wedding DJs, Valentines Day is one of our favorite holidays.  To celebrate all newlywed and engaged couples, and everybody else in love, we’ve returned in 2016 with a new Valentines cocktail hour playlist compiled our DJ Gregg Ambient.  This year, Gregg has opted to focus on his favorite jazz, R&B and soul selections, with representative artists including John Coltrane, Chet Baker, Norah Jones, Nat King Cole, Jose James, Peaches & Herb, Ledisi and Maxwell… plus many more.

The playlist – available as either a compilation on Spotify – or as a continuous one hour mix on Mixcloud – is deliberately slow and romantic side and meant to be enjoyed over a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire.   For those craving dancier Valentine’s mixes, check out Gregg’s “50 Shades” and “Cupid Soul” mixes.

For a signature drink, Gregg has selected a glass of the delicious Italian hazelnut liqueur Frangelico, served on the rocks. frangelico_1
