DJing and MCing for Phillip and Kaz was a breeze, as they were very relaxed and so were their guests. Their wedding had a beautiful community atmosphere, and this was reflected in both the ceremony and reception. Family, friends and loved ones were close by for every moment of the day, and we even felt like friends by the end of the event, such was Phillip and Kaz's welcoming nature.
The songs chosen by a couple for key moments of their wedding offers a chance for them to showcase their unique personality as a partnership. Phillip and Kaz definitely succeeded in this aspect, as their song choices were perfect for them. If you are stuck on what songs will best suit your wedding, Funk Bros DJs are always available for song selection advice.
"Fooled Around & Fell in Love" by Elvin Bishop
Recently featured in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Soundtrack, this track captured the couple's whimsical nature, and the amusing story of how they first met.
"All I Want is You" by Barry Louis Polisar
Made popular by the movie "Juno", this sweetly sung acoustic love song showcased this couple's happy-go-lucky personalities and deep connection.
"Sunshine" by Flight Facilities Ft. Reggie Watts
Funk Bros DJs are always thrilled when a couple's musical selection is a bit out of left field, yet perfect for the occasion. Phillip and Kaz suggested this song for their Wedding Dance, and how could we refuse?!? This super-funky and heartfelt track from Australia's own "Flight Facilities" is right up our alley, and again, like their other key musical choices, fit Phillip and Kaz to a T.
For the remainder of the Wedding and Reception, Phillip and Kaz trusted us to curate a playlist based on the Funk Bros DJ sound.
There are too many beautiful romantic songs that would have fit here, and we whittled our song selection down to 45min of soulful, heartfelt tunes which were present without being intrusive to guests' conversations. Here's a small selection:
"Humanity (Love the way it should be)" by John Legend & The Roots
"Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley & The Wailers
"All Because of You" by Leroy Hutson
Phillip and Kaz's reception was also at Greenhill Wines, making it easy for us to transition from Ceremony to Reception. Phillip had seen us perform at Wurst of Adelaide, and requested a similar musical feel for their Reception. The following tracks offer a snapshot of how we slowly built the mood from Cocktail food and drinks, up to a dancing celebration.
"The Message" by Cymande
"For Good" by REMI Ft. Sampa the Great
"Kissing My Love" by Bill Withers
"Give the People What they Want" by The O'Jays
"Groove Me" by King Floyd
The upstairs deck became a dance-floor, and guests who were young, old, and in between, got their dance on. Some of the more enthusiastic responses were to these tracks:
"Car Wash" by Rose Royce
"Kiss" by Prince
"New Sensation" by INXS
"Jenny from the Block" by Jennifer Lopez (Track Masters Remix)
"Hypnotize" by The Notorious B.I.G.
It was such a privilege to DJ for Phillip and Kaz. Thank you for trusting us with the music for your special day!
