You should always play music when guest are coming. It will help to create the mood you’re trying to set. Choose music that you love , but that also matches the theme of your party or dinner. Soft music is better suited for times when you wish to be able to speak to your guests, dance music should be reserved for times when you ‘ re actually dancing. I love classical and jazz to accompany a serious dinner. Here you will find the small sampling list – mix of everything from Gypsy Kings to the First Lady of France. Enjoy!
