Sinatra type music is always a safe bet.

We had a no dancing luncheon, and we played a mix of non-descript music that you don’t really hear. I think it was actually called a “Restaurant Mix”

We did Sinatra type and it was a big hit.  Our DJ also mixed in songs that you wanted to hear but can’t really dance to, like Hey Ho, or whatever its called.

I agree with the “Sinatra type” – we had a list of preferred songs for our dinner that included:

La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong
All of Me by Louis Armstrong
Let’s Do It by Ella Fitzgerald
Come Rain or Come Shine by Billie Holiday
Aint Nobody Here but us Chickens by Louis Jordan
Bushel and a Peck by Doris Day

(the last 2 are just fun, give them a listen)

Jazz, easy listening, instrumental music.

We’re working on our dinner-reception playlist right now! FI is the music buff, so I’m not precisely sure what’s on there, but I know it includes some Sigur Ros, Sufjan Stevens… stuff with not TOO noticeable lyrics, but with a nice soft interesting sound.
