We decided to not have a DJ or Band and instead are DIY-ing the music. We’ve rented equitment and are now making our song list. But….how many songs should we have? What is a good amount of time to plan for dinner music? Dancing music?
Suggestions? What has worked for you???

I would be keen to hear how much music people had/have. My partner & I jokingly starting making a list of “must have” songs with some people at a party a few weeks ago – our list is over 200 songs long!!

Mcgoo, wow 200 songs! You’re list is doing way better then ours. I only have about 20ish dance songs. The dinner songs and such I think i’m good with. It is the dance ones that get me.
What type of music are you playing for dancing?

sorry for the long wait!
we’ve got a real mix bag – 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, modern. Stuff that’s on radio now (just boring top 40), indie stuff my stepkids like that we’ve become used to listening to. We’re Australian – lots of Oz rock, very eclectic!
But seriously – we were at a party at my sisters, about half a dozen of us sat around going “oh you gotta have….” and 2hrs later we had nearly 200 songs listed.
