Your wedding should be the party of the year. A big part of that is the reception with food, speeches – and of course, the dancing! Wedding bands are a great way to get everyone up on their feet. Make sure your band plays these ten songs to guarantee your guests can’t fight the urge to dance.
- Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now
This is a classic for getting everyone out of their seats! “Don’t Stop Me Now” is one of Queen’s absolute classics, and its cross-generational appeal will encourage every age group to hit the floor.
- Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
No event is complete without a song or two from Taylor Swift. “Shake It Off” is one of the best for starting off your reception in an upbeat mood.
- Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
Another one that will be beloved by a range of guests, “Don’t Stop Believin’” is a singalong must. It’s a fantastic choice for bringing the mood back up if everyone’s flagging after a long day.
- Tina Turner – Simply The Best
For the romantics out there, “Simply The Best” gives you a chance to get a bit mushy with your other half. Aside from that, it’s a modern classic that everyone loves belting out.
- Pharrell Williams – Happy
“Happy” is a song that little ones and grown ups can’t help smiling along to – making it ideal for an all-ages wedding reception.
- Beyonce – Single Ladies
Don’t forget your friends during the dancing! Break up the romantic numbers with “Single Ladies” so everyone can show off their best Beyonce moves.
- Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline
Even if not everyone feels up to dancing, the whole room will definitely join in for a singalong of “Sweet Caroline”. It’s a guaranteed hit!
- Walk The Moon – Shut Up and Dance
Perhaps not the most subtle message, but “Shut Up and Dance” definitely gives off the party vibe you want. Its modern take on 80s romantic pop is ideal for weddings.
- Sister Sledge – We Are Family
Get your whole family together and link arms for a fun rendition of “We Are Family”. It will give you a chance to show your appreciation to the people you love most.
- ABBA – Dancing Queen
Remember to bring out the ever-popular “Dancing Queen” to keep the party going long into the evening! Start building your wedding setlist now so you can ensure everyone has the chance to dance the night away.
