FAQs

First of all, if your parents are GenXers or young Boomers, these are the songs they love.

So, since they’re paying for the wedding, how about giving them some great songs? (Wait. They’re paying, right?)

Secondly, a lot of people in that generation are getting remarried.

Thirdly, the lyrics. Those are some well-written, emotion-packed songs.

Then you add in the groove, and that is the way to fill up your dance floor.
