Opening in 2015, The Mansion at Bald Hill features 7,500 square feet for hosting up to 275 guests. The ballroom has a lavish granite countertop bar, large dance floor, indoor fireplace and decorative wood arched truss design.

Setting The Tone Of Your Event With The Right Cocktail Hour Music

 



So exactly who wants to hear two hours of Kenny G music? Sure, there are those that want to set THAT tone, but you don’t have to play a “standard mix of jazz favorites” or boring “elevator music” at your wedding cocktail hour.


Imagine how different things would feel at your wedding if during the Cocktail hour, we played a mix of recorded music by Jimmy Buffett, Shaggy, Bob Marley and Jack Johnson? What about some of those long lost hits of the 80’s – Katrina and the Waves, Eurythmics, Modern English , Prince, Culture Club.


What about an hour of Spanish guitar music? Or a mix of Italian “mob hits” classics such as Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra? How about set more of a piano bar sing along style feel to social hour: KT Tunstall – Black Horse and The Cherry Tree, Stevie Wonder – Boogie On Reggae Woman, Uncle Cracker – Follow Me, Billy Joel – Piano Man and Elton John – Tiny Dancer.


We recently had a client who wanted Modern Rock selections from groups like American Authors, Lumineers, Ed Sheehan, Goo Goo Dolls and Dave Matthews Band.


If fact, if smooth jazz is the appropriate answer for your event, then we can create a unique mix of the latest releases. Atmosphere Productions in association with Rich Edwards SmoothGrooves radio show on 96.6FM on GFM, Gloucester, England, and Regina Records Radio, we are able to provide new and pre-release smooth jazz artists like Vincent Ingala, Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, Richard Elliott, Fourplay and Peter White. Selections that will make your Cocktail Hour or Dinner come to life and set the tone for the rest of the event.


Whatever your choice from Beatles favorites to acoustic alternative rock – you name it and we can work with your interest and create the perfect feel to the start of your event. If your interested in “LIVE” musicians visit our website for more details.
