Sounds like a great idea.  I don’t think it is uncommon to have additional music after the formal music (whether it be DJ or band) is over.  We’re planning to do something similar as well since we are hoping to have a band.  We’ll have the band play for a few hours then put on an ipod with dance music for the rest of the time.

I would talk to the band about their set breaks.  We had a band and they took two breaks during the 4 hour time period.  So during the breaks we had an IPod with music we wanted to hear that we knew the band couldn’t play.  Most bands will take at least one or two breaks.  I would see if your friend would take care of the break music.

Nope, sorry.  I don’t really follow music.  I’ve put my Fiance in charge of all playlists (welcome dinner, cocktail hour, dinner, and post-band reception music), but gave myself veto power.  

What I can say, is I would definately add in some classics, especially to encourage your older family members to join in the dancing.  We’ll definately have some Billy Joel, Beatles, Michael Jackson, etc.  But, “we” (as in my Fiance and our friends, and so by default, me) are more into the classics rather than today’s dance music.

Well if that’s the case then no I don’t see the problem in your extra music at the end of the night.  I would do a mix of the old classic Michael type songs with the new stuff.  That way everyone gets a good mix.
