Can I choose what songs the band is going to play?

We love to hear about your favorite songs, as well as your "DNP List", or the 'Do Not Play' as we call it. The bands we work with have very rich and extensive song lists, and we work with every client to customize those. We also encourage clients to trust the band's ability to read the audience and adapt their performance, because the more freedom the artist has, the better, to keep everyone dancing all night long. We will take every special request to the artist. Is it guaranteed? No, but we work with some seriously accommodating artists, and all special requests are at their discretion.
