Where are the parties this summer?
Just in case it’s at your house…the beach…a park or even at someone else’s house, you may be the one who brings the perfect music. I assume if you are reading my blog you may be the one that is the designated DJ. It may be up to you to get the party started and poppin’ all the way till the end. YES, I said it….if you are the one bringing music, planning the playlist, or suggesting the tunes….YOU ARE “sort of” a DJ.
I feel a little qualified to help you out on this since I was a club and mobile DJ for over 26 years. I owned a DJ service that did house parties, weddings, beach parties, desert raves, bar mitzvahs, quinceañeras and any event that needed “GREAT” music. I loved rockin’ the dance floors and intensity of any type of party! When summer rolled around I was always booked and in high demand.
SUMMERTIME…..IS PARTY TIME!
I played music for all types of people and parties. So, my gigs went from spinning music at hip-hop gigs, to 70’s disco parties, 80’s new wave, country line dance parties, EDM, House, Techno, hard rock parties and more.
This summer I feel the need to talk about some of the artists that always ensured a packed dancefloor. These same artists are also great in cars as you head out on summer road trips and get-aways.
Since I often write about hip hop, I am going to mix it up and talk about 80’s “New Wave” dance music. If you love this sub-genre of rock and alternative music, I am sure you felt compelled to run to the dance floor when you heard “Rock Lobster” or “Love Shack.”
So, let’s talk, B-52’s!
This week it was announced that after 45 years, The B-52’s will be performing their final shows. They will be in select cities starting on August 22 in Seattle, WA and ending on November 13, in their home state of Georgia.
In the 80’s they were one of my most requested groups for just about any type of party or event. Their music was highly infectious. The B-52’s are known as “The World’s Greatest Party Band.” Whenever I wanted to turn up the heat on the dancefloor, they were my go-to band.
In celebration of “Summer Party Pop” music you can find all your favorite B-52 party jams like, Rock Lobster, Love Shack, Private Idaho, Planet Claire, Dance the Mess Around, Strobe Light, Party Out of Bounds and more…Click Here for deals on the B-52’s from my friends at DeepDiscount.com
