What Songs Do You Play At Ruby Wedding Anniversaries?


Recommended Posts

Best off asking what they would like to hear on the evening , may have certain records that having meaning after 40 years of marriage , ask for requests during the evening and try and accomodate what they ask for, a good cross section of music will do the job and the requests from guests should keep you busy.Dont make the presumption that all the guests will be same age as the hosts!!!!!!!!

^^ as above.

 

It would be very rare for every single person in the invited audience to all be exactly the same age group and generation, a family function, even a Ruby Wedding should't automatically be considered to be a nursing home :D

 

Of course, ask the usual questions of the couple as to what they would like to hear, and use request slips / ask the audience for their requests throughout as well

 

Other than that, play it by ear, see the age group in attendance and adjust accordingly, usually these things end up being similar to weddings and other family functions with a good mix of eras

 

Real time Deejaying, you can't beat it. :toot:

This was meant to be funny as they did a song called Ruby. I'll get me coat.

 

I think it could be a nice idea to recreate their wedding day and play music that is at least 40 years old.

Re-create it with some 40yr old 60s style lighting and gramaphone for that authentic sound?

I expect this will be a family occasion with 3 or 4 generations present, so you will basically be playing everything. Early on, when no one really cares, get some High Musical going for the kids. Some golden oldies (swing, rat pack etc) then to encourage a little bit of dancing, then you've got 50 years worth of party favourites to play with all night.

 

Take requests, read your crowd, don't be afraid to take a few chances. This is where the psychology of our job comes in to play. It's nerve-wracking but fun. For me, this is real deejaying, and takes a lot more skill than some chancer playing one genre and messing about with effects all night.

I did a 70th birthday party last week and was asked to play Disturbed! Turned out to the "birthday girl" was an ageing rocker and her extended family shared pretty much the same taste in music....which both surprised and delighted me at the same time. It just goes to show you can't judge every book by it's cover.

Very true, I did a 60th Wedding Anniversary a couple of weeks ago, held in an old folks version of Butlins, there were motorised wheelchairs, zimmer frames and crutches parked all over the place, but they were up for a party and after the buffet danced all night long till 1am, the vast majority of their guests were 60+, but I pretty much played the usual, motown, rock n roll, party classics, they even asked for Agadoo :eek: - and as the customer is always right they got it! plus a lot more, they even asked for Big Fish, Little Fish which is a kiddies song, I didn't have it, but with the power of internet over mobile phone 10 mins and £1.99 later they got that too. Never underestimate the old folks, remember they were partying like hell when you were just a kid!

If it wasn't for the fact I'm not posting this from my working machine I'd put my playlist up.
