Nothing sets the mood quite like a good combination of atmospheric music, well made cocktails and a perfect setting. Music at cocktail hour should not be overlooked as it sets the perfect tone for the rest of the evening. I try to put a lot of thought behind the music for every cocktail reception taking into the account the venue, demographics of the guests and sometimes the season the event is held in. I put together a playlist that has a distinct fall feel. Below is a sample of the set. It's a great song by Quantic and Alice Russell, one of my favorite contemporary vocalists. Steam it below or go here to listen to the full playlist.
