Dinner & Cocktail Moods

Every event is special and unique, and many events are composed of different segments, each requiring their own specific mood, and we specialize in finding just the right music for just the right times.  Many events have some sort of cocktail or dinner segment, usually at the beginning, which is best served by a subtle and pleasant backdrop.  Not too-loud and not too-soft, the music during these times has to be just the right style and volume to both relax and entertain you and your guests while you enjoy the company of friends and family.

Background music should be just that… in the background.  That doesn’t mean it has to put you to sleep!

Often, a subtle and classy backdrop that speaks of elegance and restraint is desired for these times, and if this is what you are looking for, we can provide you with the desired level of sophistication for these parts of your event.

We have both timeless standards and tasteful renditions of contemporary ballads in all sorts of instrumental formats.  We have solo (cocktail) piano, piano & orchestral ensembles, jazz arrangements, and more.  We can lean more towards certain genres and styles to better reflect your own personal tastes and those of your guests, and we can also incorporate fun themes or different cultural elements to help you celebrate your heritage.

Done artfully, musical programming for your cocktail and dinner segments can be so much more than just white-noise.  it can actually serve a purpose and set a tone.  By moving gradually between different types of instrumentation and by transitioning slowly from instrumental music to light vocal selections, and even into contemporary selections, these segments can be used artfully to shape the mood of your event by subtly and almost subconsciously preparing your guests for what lies ahead.

There are certainly no rules, and you don’t need to stick to the traditional fare for these parts of your event.  Music for these parts of your event can not only create a mood, but can also reflect YOUR musical tastes and preferences as well.  These segments can also be tailored to fit in with a theme.  Whatever type of mood you wish to achieve, and whatever type of music it will take to get you there, we are glad to provide it for you.
